Trolls are the people who prowl around forums like this and try to be as rude and mean as possible. Sometimes they pick on certain people, sometimes they pick certain controversial subjects like politics or religion, most of the time they'll be rude to anyone for any reason they think is valid. People who didn't get enough attention from mommy growing up so any attention they can get, even negative attention, makes them feel big and powerful. Sad little people with mental problems in my book. I'm sure you'll run into one eventually if you haven't already. If you ignore them they usually go away. If you answer their posts they just get worse.

The only trolls i know of are thoses dolls with big hair made in china that came out in the 60s (i believe). I have a collection of them myself. I have even gotten my hands on some of the houses they have too. The dolls originated in Denmark. A man named Thomas Damn carved a doll out of wood for his daughter. She loved the doll so much she took it everywhere with her. Everyone loved it and thus trolls became popular. The poor man became rich. I have always loved these dolls. Since i was a kid too. My daughter had some. When she felt she was too old to play with dolls she wanted to put them in a garage sale. I told her i was keeping them and thus my collection started. When i was a kid my parents wouldnot buy me one of the houses but i have 5 now and if you check them out on ebay the bidding sometimes goes up as much as $100. Some of the troll dolls w/ tails have gone up to $400.

Yea my sister and i had Barbie dolls too. I wished i would have listened to my grandma and kept them too. The first ones we had didnt have long hair. The hair was up in a bun style. The 60's style. We had a house and a fashion shop.
