Because Trolls Are Human, Too. Well, Maybe Not


BoingBoing TV put together a mockumentary outlining the history of internet trolls, or people who lurk on your site and leave snarky commentary while swathed in the soothing blanket of anonymity.

An excerpt: "Truly this is a golden age for me and my ilk. The internet has brought with it new opportunities to release our flies in the ointment of society, to thumb our noses at sensible debate, to derail thought-provoking and well meaning discussions."

We cried.
