The whole idea of trolls is wrong... it's just a term used by people on forums and in comments used when someone says something the other person dosn't like or disagrees with.

What I find more annoying is when comparisons are made... and when someone compares a with b unfavourably... people use comparisons all the time... except when someone compares them in away that the other person disagrees with then let lose with the old "that's like comparing apples with oranges" crap... some peoples dictionaries and education are seriously lacking if they think it's not possible to compare an apple to an orange.
