Fascinating article on trolls
The New York Times Magazine has a great piece on trolls. "The Trolls Among Us" features interviews with a few trolls, offering some insight into their motivations and actions. I found this suggestion particularly interesting: "The willingness of trolling 'victims' to be hurt by words, he argued, makes them complicit, and trolling will end as soon as we all get over it." It's an interesting read. You may need to register in order to access the article, if you're not already signed up with NYTimes.com.
