That's flaming, not trolling. A troll provokes others to call each other names, not does that himself.



A troll goes about causing trouble, it doens't matter how. I'm not causing anything save some mild amusement.

Trolling is an age-honored activity with its own traditions. One is that a troll avoids breaking the rules explicitly as much as possible, he makes other members break the rules.

Does it necessarily require a field?



A field or something like it.

Is boxing a sport?



No. Two troglodytes trying to give each other brain damge is a barbaric spectacle, not a sport. and I ammend not one iota of that statement in the case of women's boxing.

How about squash (enclosed court)



Squash does better in fertile fields out in the sun with plenty of water. What does this have to do with sports?

A sport is an athletic contest with a defined objective on the field.


Can you provide some examples?

I believe someone here is trying to turn leg-pulling into a sport.

I asked the sports guys from my local paper if they considered poker to be a sport, and they just laughed. We were at a baseball game and they considered THAT to be a sport, though. So, hah. :P

I think it shows how much golf is a mental game



Absolutely!! All the guys are on tour are superb golfers with incredible skills. Tiger has consistently demonstrated that he had the ability to perform at a level a notch above the best players in the world. The mistakes he made in his personal life have definitely affected his ability to concentrate on his game.

A troll goes out and tries to start an argument by making an inflammatory point.

It's nothing to do with causing insult or injury... just that many trolls end up with that as well.

Well, let's see.

Forum is a field, or if not, quite like it.
The objectives are clearly defined as attracting attention and causing heated arguments or unrest.

So baseball is not a sport, but trolling by your definition is.

Maybe to recoup some of his losses from the divorce Tiger is deliberately tanking until the odds on him winning a particular tourney are so long he can make a huge score, more than making up for the lost prize money.
