Trolling the internet trolls

Vituperate is what an internet troll does. I should know; I have block list with well over a thousand of them on it. An internet troll is someone who interrupts an online discussion with posts and comments that hijack and upset the conversation. Easy to spot, they will lie, exaggerate and defame to generate a response and derail a thread. What you should know is that researchers studied cybertrolls to conclude that the kind of people that indulge in this habit are actually manifesting common, everyday sadism. This is a for-real study published in a recent issue of Personality and Individual Differences. Actual internet trolls were tested and found to also exhibit the personality traits of narcissism, Machiavellianism and psychopathy along with the sadism. In fact, the study authors said that internet trolls assessment scores were so strong that “online trolls are prototypical everyday sadists.” Just assume that the annoying troll crashing your favorite site is simply mentally ill and it’s not your job to reform them. Do like I do: click-ban-click-delete – enough said…

Don't feed the trolls!
