    It means that they think you're being deliberately provocative. A "troll" is internet-English(?) term for someone who acts in a certain way to intentionally provoke a negative reaction from people. "Don't feed the troll" means "Don't enable it".

    I agree with pickarooney; 'Don't feed the troll' means don't encourage him, don't give him the satisfaction of an answer.
