Maybe they're going by Anarchopedia's definition, http://meta.anarchopedia.org/index.php/Trolls
The word troll is applied to many diverse heretics, dissidents, and other disagreers in various contexts. They seem to reject joining social clubs and accepting group-defined concepts of politeness. It isn't clearly why, but, trolls sometimes say they are engaged in a battle of "empathy" *against* "eloquence" - the latter being an attribute of liars, frauds, con men, cheaters, politicians, and artificial intelligence.
Usually the label troll simply indicates that someone considers them pests or usurpers. They do not usually fit clearly as part of any clique or group of "friends" or "enemies", but often just deny any goal but truth. They are a faction by default, only because they do not clearly identify with any other faction or accept any other guidance.
By the way, I've received reports that people have been blanking pages on Anarchopedia and replacing them with the URL here... I and I hope no other admins endorse this. Checking it out myself it seems to have stopped, but please, whover it is if you see this don't continue. Yes, even if it is Willy on Wheels or whoever, we're plenty known enough don't worry
Good intentions possibly but yeah, please stop.
