The internet is the roost of cowards. Anonymity brings out the worst in some.

The local online newspaper here now requires anyone who comments to identify themselves. There were too many trolls posting garbage.

I'm a believer in Karma. Hopefully those internet bullies will get theirs down the road.

I sure hope you're right. Facebook, from what I've seen of it, just seems to be a breeding ground for internet haters.
One can only wonder what these people did before the internet became available to them.

Facebook is full of trolls, agreed. But I wouldn't say it's the breeding grounds of all trolls. That title goes to forum boards like ****** & something awful, where internet trolls congregate by the thousands and get organized. The ultimate goal of many of these troll groups is to troll somebody to the point of suicide. I've seen this efforts quite a few times, yet nobody does anything.

Why? I have no idea.

I have to admit, these days I wonder if some people aren't professional trolls, paid to scribble stupid, politically-charged comments in the comment sections.
