Various users have different motivations for trolling. A common factor to
most of them is the desire to draw attention to the troll. Inflammatory,
sarcastic, disruptive or humorous content is posted, meant to draw other
users into engaging the troll in a fruitless confrontation. The more
attention the troll's activities draw from users, the more persistent the
troll's behavior in the forum. This gives rise to the often repeated
protocol in internet culture: "Do not feed the trolls."
... and I'm done feeding.
