It seems like mike3's done this exact same troll 50 or 60 times.  He
waits a bit in between attempts, presumably in the hope that some new
readers will come along who might take his "questions" seriously.


From the Wikipedia.

"An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who intentionally posts controversial or contrary messages in an on-line community such as an on-line discussion forum or group with the singular intention of baiting users into an argumentative response.[1] It often has a broader meaning referring to any shady trouble making Internet activity."

Posting accusations of "troll" against other posters can easily fall under the definition of trolling. What delicious self-referential irony. Trollers and trollees alike entwined in an orgasmic, communicative and collaborative embrace.
