I dislike the term 'troll' intensely. What is a 'troll'?

Originally, trolls lived under bridges. Like the dragons painted into old maps at the edge of the world, they threatened travelers. Seekers had to face dragons, trolls, and wrestle with their demons in their pursuit of knowledge.

Like Kirk (old Star Trek) who cheated on the Kobayashi Maru test to get through the academy...he never had to face death. I can sympathize with the admin being the bridge that everyone is trampling over. On the other hand, painting over dragons, and deleting trolls feels like I am cheating myself in some way.

If a person is 'disruptive'...he is a 'disruptor'...that breaks forum rules and they should be removed. Asking questions that no one wants to answer...just makes one boring.
