    A fork is a variant copy of something, usually code or a corpus of documentation. In large public wikis, "fork off" is an insult that invites someone to create one, because they are too stupid or hard to satisfy. Trolls are usually invited to "fork off" by sysops.

    See also bad copy problem, self-interested fork problem.
