Sorry, I just won't accept this definition. Too much room for intolerance. You have labeled people "trolls" who might simply be angering people with offensive opinions.
As long as they are not throwing out off-topic crap, making gross sexual, racial or personal remarks, or spamming with repetitive slogans, then let the good times roll, they ain't no troll.
I suppose different online communities have different standards. I am describing my preferred standard.
