Name that word

Caller- I'm looking for a word (probably not shill) that describes a person who spends a lot of time in political online forums. They might be a leftist but pretend to be a conservative to give them a bad name.

Since I have NO IDEA I passed it on to my colleague; he will call her tomorrow. He likes projects like that.

Solution: Ask Marian!

After much thought last night I came up with the following: impostor, devil's advocate, and troll. I think it might be troll.

troll was what I thought of first, as well as plenty of unfit-for-publication words. Ahem.
