A troll is a post written just to provoke a response, or the person who makes such a post.

A prime example would be posting "Python is so much better than Perl!" It wouldn't matter whether the poster really believed that; he would write it because he knows it'll stir things up.

Someone who responds to such a post is said to have been trolled.

Also see troll in the Jargon File.
