8. May I suggest that
there are seven dimensions to troll space (although generally only "one dimension" to any troll).

I would suggest that these "dimensions" (they are rather "uneven", admittedly) are:
1) Class. (Although trolls have "no class", so maybe "category" is better.) I would also add a goodly number to your categories... but this might be considered excessive.
2) Independence of Operation. (team, loose-crew, solo artiste)
3) Driver. (paid, job, volunteer, sport)
4) Time as a member.
5) Number of posts.
6) Activity. (steady, episodic, join-post-a-little-and-wait, infrequent, rare, basically never)
7) Star/no-star.

And a little fun is just a little fun... besides the door was left wide open.

One can learn a great deal by watching the trolls... However, getting them tombstoned is quite another matter.
