A troll is anyoine who posts something purely to elicit a strong reaction. I think it comes from fishing.

A Flamer is anyone who goes out of their way to berate another poster.

The best thing to do about both is ignore them. Most of them are looking for attention & when it is denied they go away.

Occasionally a troll shows up who is really clever and sucks the entire board into his antics and can be amusing if you don't take it personally.
