Web Trolling

Posting on discussion forums, chat rooms, or blogs with the primary intent to provoke others into a emotional engagement to attract predictable responses or flames. This is similar to style of fishing in which one trails bait through a likely spot hoping for a bite.

    There are some individuals out there who don't just enjoy winding up people on newsgroups and bulletin boards - it's their sad lifestyle choice! Using every known disruptive trick in the book, these troublesome types don't go out to the pub, meet members of the opposite sex or enjoy life. They spend their time hunched over their computers trolling. -- [http://www.urban75.com/Mag/troll.html The Subtle Art of Trolling]
