There is a fib in this sentence: this study mentioned on Slate, failed to define the term"troll" and did not use the term"button pusher" in it's description. So, what we've got here is an example of circular logic: the undefined term "troll" is defined as a "button pusher",which remains undefined.

"The study found correlations, sometimes quite significant, between these traits and trolling behavior."
