    It depends, I've not seen people produly exclaiming that they're trolls. Besides, being a BOFH takes more cleverness and skill than simple trolling. It's more subtle and ingenious than just pulling stuff from your rear and trying to piss people off with it.

    Originally trolls were like the Court Jesters of Usenet, coming up with creative (whilst often irrelevant) but nontheless amusing posts.

    Now it's been hijacked by the chavs of the 'net.
