A special kind of troll

24 Apr

Ever heard of those horrid little things called Trolls?

troll

Most people think of something like this when they imagine a troll but in the online world a troll actually refers to:

…a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

This sense of the word troll and its associated verb trolling are associated with Internet discourse, but have been used more widely. Media attention in recent years has equated trolling with online harassment. For example, mass media has used troll to describe “a person who defaces Internet tribute sites with the aim of causing grief to families.”

– from Wikipeida

There has been a recent scientific study into trolling and trolls. I guess it’s no real surprise that it turns out that trolls are pretty shitty people away from their computers as well. In fact, according to this article, the study discovered a pretty massive crossover between trolls and sadists/psychopaths. So that puts them pretty much smack bang in the crazy zone.

I chose to write about trolls today, to give you a little back story on the practice and to help you understand just how much of a crazy bitch this monstrous blob of an oxygen thief is…

The self-troll

This is Michelle Chapman. Michelle Chapman is in prison now. The judge sent her there because she spent over a year trolling herself! Michelle here had a bit of a problem with her father and was trying to get revenge on him by setting up fake facebook accounts for both him, his wife and other members of the family. She then used those fake accounts to troll herself by sending hundreds of horrible messages, which is just bloody crazy but she had a plan… She then contacted the police and accused the real-life versions of her fake accounts of tormenting her.

Essentially she had a vendetta against her father and she trolled herself as a way of trying to get him in trouble. And it worked! At least for a while. That is until the forensic internet inquiries revealed that all the accounts originated at her house, and her computer. Then the cops went after Michelle and all of a sudden she bacame the first person I’ve ever heard of for going to jail for trolling themselves.
