    Excellent Daily Mail piece investigates the phenomenon and features a man in Northern Ireland working to combat it:

    'Help me, mummy. It's hot here in hell': A special investigation into the
    distress of grieving families caused by the sick internet craze of 'trolling
    '

    These people are disgusting, the lowest forms of life. How can someone enjoy causing that kind of pain? People like this make me very worried because it seems like their sadistic behavior could easily escalate to the real world. Scary.

    Absolutely despicable. I'd say those people are low functioning sociopaths. Some of them could escalate to killing, but most are too lacking in social skills or courage to do anything other than sit behind a keyboard and practice mental sadism.

    You reap what you sew.
    I certainly hope this two legged maggot gets his back in kind.

    Wow. That 'man' is disgusting. How could someone do something like that? Why would someone want to do something like that? So despicable.

    What an evil way to get his 'jollies'. Makes me think it's because this sociopath has never had anyone he loves die.

    Because he's never loved anyone. Because he is incapable of love. He's only capable of hate.

    The only consolation I can find is that he himself will one day be saying, "Help me, it's hot in Hell". :furious::dervish:

    I'd like to think that such folks are in hell right now, such are their human limitations while living.

    From the OP's link.
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ing-families-caused-sick-internet-trolls.html

    Those kind of people who do that are sick in their brains. They are brains work differently from normal people. I have seen them profiled and they typically are males between the ages of 18 to 34 with some to complete college education. They are usually loners and have no life. It would not surprise me if they have antisocial personality disorder and are psychopaths. No surprise they have criminal records too.

    If you've been wooed by a cyberstalker, this profile will bring you back to reality:
    -lives in a 1-room apartment which hasn't been cleaned for months - if ever
    -has stacks of pornographic magazines in his bedroom area
    -has poor personal hygiene
    -has poor table manners
    -has poor social etiquette
    -hasn't changed the sheets on his bed for months, which are now best described as crusty
    -has a bathroom, the state of which doesn't bear thinking about
    -lives on pizza and beer/coke, the remnants of which litter his apartment
    -may have an unusual pet (eg ferret) which has free run of the apartment
    -is either significantly over- or under-weight
    -has a small moustache or other facial hair
    -has not held down any job for more than a couple of years, probably less
    -has no friends
    -has no life outside the Internet

    Even though this deals with stalkers, the profile listed fits trolls well.

    I totally believe you, but I am interested in learning more. Do you happen to have a link to the research you reference? I am really wanting (hoping) to learn if there are commonalities in the lives of those who would post such disgusting comments on memorial boards.....

    I hate to agree with "the end of human civility" :(

    The internet and it's anonymity has just given public voice to these misfits that have always been among us. Instead of plaguing the lives of the people who know them, now they can extend their plague indiscriminately to others.

    It actually helps me cope to realize these revolting characters have always been among us. It means there is nothing new under the sun. Except perhaps the MEANS to extend their plague.

    Doesn't stop me from wishing there were just a way to step on them, like a bug.

    I don't understand, Just sick.. Thanks for the information.

    I was stalked online once, not as sick as what was posted, but people are bored, enjoy harming others, and have no joy in their own lives I imagine and feel this is a way to bring hurt to others.

    Just vile.
