Troll Mod Troll Mods were once posters who enjoyed the thrill of a good argument, but who are now shackled by the responsibility and power they have been given. Power hungry, so unwilling to give up their Moderator status, they move away from their domain to enter into slanging matches (trolling) with rival posters under the cover of “friendly banter”. The Troll Mod is a hypocrite, as they usually keep a tight reign in their own backyard. Troll Mods usually have the impressive skill of making comments that go right up to the mark, but never quite cross it. They will generally disappear when rounded on, but will always leave a parting shot before vanishing.
