    The legitimate questions are usually quite boring

    Some of the trolls are quite imaginative.

    The majority though think they're being hilarious, but actually it's just boring racism or attempts at shock tactics. After awhile on her you just look at it and think... meh... and scroll along

    Some of the troll posts are pretty good to have fun with, a lot are just pathetic repeats from people with untreated mental illness.

    The definition of an online troll is someone who posts to trigger a response. Troll posts are often ridiculous and/or inflammatory, so many people are likely to respond (just as the troll desires). Legitimate questions tend to be less interesting or less apt to invoke an emotional response.

    .

    Troll posts should be reported so they are hopefully removed. The site was designed to be a repository of knowledge/experience, not of the insane and and useless (posts). With the extreme lack of oversight on YA since shortly before Verizon bought it, non-compliant users have flourished, and the Community has had a hard time getting rid of them (with little to no help from Yahoo staff).

    Infamous.  It means more than famous.
