    It's somebody who usually makes up ridiculous stories in an attempt to get a reaction or cause an argument on a forum. I think. :p

    Don't worry, you're not the only one, I'm the same :eek:

    Before joining PF, the troll under the bridge was the only one I knew. Now I know different - this place seems to be swamped with them at times :rolleyes:
