Trolling & Flagging a Post

I need some help, education & enlightment from my Ram bros. What is "trolling" or what is a "troll?" I'm old school & not as internet savy as a lot of you youngsters. I'm also relatively new to TST. Is there a common definition for those terms or does it mean different things to different people? I hear a like of guys call others trolls & I'm clueless as to why. I also discovered recently thanks to Failure Drill that you can click on actions in someone's post & "flag" their post. I asked him & I'm also asking you guys now, when is it appropriate to "flag" someone's post? I think his reply was if someone's post is trolling (there's that word again), spam or otherwise inappropriate you may elect to flag the post. I've never seen anyone flag someone else's post. I would think it would have to be something pretty egregious to warrant a flag. I'm guessing it would be something you would do in a very rare circumstance. Am I right or wrong? Thanks
