News from the world of Internet trolls lately. In the midst of Hurricane Sandy, of emergency and life and death, trolls on Twitter posting false reports of power outage and crisis where it wasn’t.
In the midst of online site Reddit, a mega-troll and pedophile promoter, unveiled. Outed. The migration of so much of our national conversation to the web has opened a door to the troll – the anonymous prankster bully vandal derailer of discourse. Trolls say wait a minute, we’ve got a point. Do they?

Eventually they piss off enough people and get banned anyway, which is nice!
