For those of you not current on the terminology, DNFTT nstands for “Do Not Feed The Trolls.“
For my most recent commenters, (which have been removed) straight from Wikipedia:
In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.
The contemporary use of the term is alleged to have first appeared on the internet in the late 1980s,
but the earliest known example is from 1991.
It is thought to be a truncation of the phrase trolling for suckers
, itself derived from the fishing
technique of slowly dragging bait through water, known astrolling
. The word also evokes the trolls
portrayed in Scandinavian folklore
and children’s tales as they are often creatures bent on mischief and wickedness. The verb “troll” originates from Old French “troller”, a hunting term. The noun “troll”, however, is an unrelated Old Norse word for a giant.
