"Troll"

Someone who posts in a forum with the intent of eliciting a negative response from other posters, or to cause general confusion and otherwise derail a topic.

note: Someone making an off-topic post is not necessarily a troll, they are simply straying from the topic. Someone making repeated off-topic posts with the intent of derailing a topic, is a troll.
