True but only because its been changed over the years. Trolling was of courses referring to fishing for comments. Trying to get a bit on your line. A fishing metaphor. Over time people changed it for a troller on the forum to a troll and then people started thing of it as more of troll ala bridge troll or fantasy troll.

Yall probably know this already I just write it because I was surprised by a guy in my old guild who thought the term trolling was referring to how WOW horde players make stupid remarks on the forums. He honestly had no clue where it came from or that it predated WOW by years.
