Griefing refers to the act of an offending player (i.e. the griefer—one who causes grief) purposely ruining other players' gaming experiences by exploiting aspects of the game in unintended ways or disrupting the community. This also includes spamming, which is reportable under Rule 14. Griefers derive enjoyment at the expense of other players.
The most obvious form of griefing is constant stalking and harassment of another player. Player killing can also be seen as a griefing activity especially if the player killer knows he or she will gain no loot yet still kills the other player. For example, players training Agility at the Wilderness Agility Course are often pestered by griefers.
Trolling refers to using subtle insults to elicit responses from others or goading an emotional response out from someone. Although griefers and trolls behave in a similar manner, such as annoying and attention-seeking, trolling occurs largely on chat or forums and individually.
