Ryan, using the very definition of troll that you provide, those who have down voted the well intentioned posts here are trolls. I'm infuriated by their actions. I probably shouldn't be, but I'm really really bothered by it.

So if one user sets out to ruin discussion, pollutes the site with comments like "Closed minded idiots every one of you", "what a bunch of pathetic losers", "What a no talent and pretty much a liar [username]", and so on, and posts at the rate of perhaps 100 comments every two days, you believe it is unacceptable for the other users on the site to downvote that person's comments? You honestly think we should look at each comment on its merits and judge it that way?

Let's make a real world analogy - you go to a bar. A belligerent drunk insults you, swears at you, interrupts you, and does his very best to make your experience there miserable. At the end of it, just when you're about to leave, he tells you that he likes your sweater. Do you accept the compliment? Somehow I doubt it.
