Sorry to be a troll, but I think you’re over simplifying it. Circlejerking doesn’t refer to the act of agreeing with somebody, it refers to what happens when a community constantly re-enforce an opinion amongst themselves without anyone to challenge them. The problem is that it can make people think of something that is controversial or incorrect as being undisputed or factual because they just keep hearing one side of the issue.

Similarly, trolling isn’t just disagreeing. It means you’re disagreeing in an inflammatory way that is supposed to provoke anger.
