In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion. - Thanks Wikipedia. This is what a Troll is. If you're stupid enough to take a Troll seriously, then you're f*cking dumb. The end. Her "confronting" these "Trolls" is stupid and pointless. This sh*t is like internet piracy - you can tighten up the penalties and publicize that it’s wrong but people are going to continue to do it since they can sit in the comfort of their own home and disassociate themselves from the warnings. It’s as effective as yelling at a deaf person. We're gen Y. We can see you jumping up and down, being angry, but we just don't care!! THIS IS THE INTERNET PEOPLE! If you're struggling to understand why people of the younger generation aren’t fussed, maybe try and remember how much more messed up crap is on the internet and sort out your priorities.

@MAX PERCY "Trolls" what does that mean? Do you actually know? These are just people mainly youngsters using it for attention/reaction a form of entertainment to them. It is not some secret monster gang that roam the streets at night who need hunting down and shooting. Have you lost your mind MAX? Everyone has their own choice to go on these sites or not. It takes two to argue, which is basically all this is - a childish argument that we now call the victors "Trolls" Look this is just an idea but STOP going on the site if it upsets you then the argument is gone! The "Troll" vanishes. No need for police or public hangings just a little common sense.
