Troll

You don't have much left to do on Habr if you had received such a badge. This badge is given, when you fall to the bottom of karmic abyss (-100 and lower). You still have one chance to become warm and fuzzy, but if you don't use it on time, your account may be blocked by the UFO without any notifications. It's bad to be a troll, if you spot one, don't feed it.
