I was just going to write a sentence or two attacking Obamacare, but that was a great piece.
Damn Republican Congress. Oops, my blunder!
It’s an interesting read, but it stays rather superficial, ignoring both the historical aspects of trolling and the important differences between certain types of trolls and their motivations. I’ve found this piece to be much more revealing look at trolls and their behaviour.
I’d point people to Matt Joyce’s excellent talk on trolls and trolling from last year’s Defcon. It’s more comprehensive and also very funny. It can be found right here: http://www.music-piracy.com/?p=457
While a troll may be bad mannered, rude persons and trolls have nothing in common. Zoe Williams says “The term is widely misused” and then goes on misusing it.
