    You are a troll t7731- someone that never has anything add to the conversation- just churns the water

    BTW- have you had other IDs in the past? Or do you have other IDs now?

    Regards from Iowa

    A troll on this site is anyone who has a different point of view.

    A Troll is someone(thing) that lives under the bridge crossed by the Billy Goats Gruff. According to my Granddad. Check out 3 Billy Goats Gruff on Wikipedia for the old folk tale.

    The definition of a troll according to the Urban Dictionary.

    "One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument"

    Wow - somebody asks what a Troll is...and Gene is the first to respond.



    Did you ever hear the expression, "The smeller is usually the feller?"

    A troll is what fishermen pull behind their boat so as to entice the fish to bite.

    A troll on this site dies the same thing. It is not fish he is attempting to lure, but other posters.

    Both examples have one thing in common. The more rotten the bait is, the better chance they have of a resonse.

    Wow that Gene is a heck of a great looking guy.

    He looks like the type that has done a tremendous amount of work helping Veterans pro bono

    He even looks like he probably worked a lot of hours vounteering on the last Republican campaign

    Keep up the great work

    Trolls are the information powerhouses of any given forum. Brian in Oregon is a Troll.

    Speaking of trolls, Tron, do you do adjustable butts and combs on rifle stocks? A friend is asking.

    t7731 is not a troll, he is a twerp.

    Twerps claim to be innoceent and yet pick on an individual for little or no reason.

    How can you claim to be a first class troll when you haven't posted a boat fire pic in a month of Sundays?

    that is a verb, ie: trolling. You do not use a troll for this. troll is another word for pain in the ass.
