The strange, strange world of the internet troll

If you read enough blogs, you will quickly realize that there are some people out there who delight in posting the most provocative, insulting, and insensitive comments they can imagine for the sheer purpose of causing emotional pain. In the best article I have read this year, the New York Times explores the world of these so-called "trolls."  I had no idea that some people spend all their time trying to wreck havoc online for the sick pleasure they derive from getting a reaction to their twisted comments. Anyone who has ever posted something they consider to be thought provoking, only to be insulted and mocked, will appreciate this article.
