    With the terms "bro country" and "bro rock" out there I almost view being called bro an insult.

    "Let's start by getting our definitions straight: An Internet troll is someone who comes into a discussion and posts comments designed to upset or disrupt the conversation. Often, in fact, it seems like there is no real purpose behind their comments except to upset everyone else involved. Trolls will lie, exaggerate, and offend to get a response.

    What kind of person would do this? Some Canadian researchers decided to find out.

    They conducted two online studies with over 1,200 people, giving personality tests to each subject along with a survey about their Internet commenting behavior. They were looking for evidence that linked trolling with the "Dark Tetrad" of personality traits: narcissism, Machiavellianism, psychopathy, and sadism."

    And they found it.

    Entire article.

    Just saying that I agree. Perhaps I could have used a better, term but whatever. I'm not intending to be facetious or sarcastic. :)
