Placement on the Internet (on forums, in discussion groups, in wiki-projects, LJ, etc.) of provocative messages in order to cause conflicts between participants, insults, etc. The person engaged in trolling is called a troll, which coincides with the name of the mythological creature .
This is essentially hooliganism, the feature of which is to impersonate another.
- the participant is registered under the nickname MAN,
- another person registers under the same name, only instead of English A writes Russian, gets a new name, but visually the same,
- Here comes the confusion, the MAN member makes strange statements ...
On normal forums, a filter is placed that does not allow you to use externally similar nicks.
