too many immoral people are trolling more effectively

TOO MANY IMMORAL PEOPLE are trolling more ef­fec­tively than ever! This state­ment is taken from Jenny Pier­son’s “Don’t Feed the Trolls: How Out­rage Fuels Sick­ening Ca­reers.” The ar­ticle is sub­ti­tled “The guy who wrote the book on trolling has some tough-to-swallow sug­ges­tions on com­bating the worst of it.” READ MORE

Trolls Stone 1500 1

TROLLS ARE EVERYWHERE! It wasn’t al­ways this way. Once upon a time, trolls dwelled in Scan­di­na­vian folk tales, crea­tures hos­tile to all things human. But now trolls are every­where!

RIGHTWINGNUTS DO IT FOR FREE is a follow-up of sorts to an ear­lier ar­ticle where I dis­cussed turning my Face­book page into a “rightwingnut hate free zone.” I did that so there will be NO MORE racist ho­mo­phobic misog­y­nistic Is­lama­phobic etcetera com­ments! Which doesn’t mean those folk aren’t oth­er­wise ubiq­ui­tous on Face­book and across the In­ternet.
