ASK NOT FOR WHOM…
The Troll trolls. He trolls for thee.
The internet is a beautiful wonder. It has allowed someone with a shrinking physical arena access to an expanding world… of ideas, information and people. It is what I hoped the international pen pals of my youth could be… with a constantly updated Encyclopedia and newspaper thrown in.
I’m having fun. Internet friends have knocked on my door. More will. Delightful.
Humanity has that oft discussed “dark side”. As a child I helped a new friend put in a small garden. We dug and planted seed in rows. When we were done he looked at me and our accomplishment and said, “Now let’s tear it up.”
Like the Bene Gesserit of “Dune,” there are places I cannot look. Is it easier to destroy than build?
If you use your real name on the internet… perhaps publish personal details and bravely insist troll attacks are “sticks and stones” but YOU are standing your ground… tell me where your blog is… Your voice. Some of the loudly brave seem more silent.
internet sociopaths are real.
I have seen an elderly lady who dared express the need for touch and a physical relationship told she was so old, wrinkled and ugly no one would ever touch her again…
I have seen a woman whose beloved husband with a serious illness facing a surgery told he would not be missed.
I have seen someone who does wonderful work with the disabled harassed for many years on the job.
I have seen many hounded off web sites with harassment, pointless cruelty and stalked from site to site relentlessly.
The Troll has a list of victims. The attacks are now you see it now you don’t hit and run.
If a frontal attack has no result, friends and innocent bystanders are casually harmed.
Because our society is good, bad and ugly, a Gay Man is vulnerable to accusations of pedophilia. Some eagerly believe slander. I have loudly and publicly been accused of pedophilia.
By a coward with a 20 minute profile hidden behind an IP proxy who then vanishes.
I do not know of a left wing troll who stalks and tracks the unwittingly Fascist. Do You? Looks Brown Shirt to me.
This “bon mot” was once excreted on an antique blog of mine.
What if I suspect you may be a troll but are not? That would be unfair. YOU ARE ONE MORE VICTIM OF THE TROLL. I trust those who have given me reason to trust.
