I have been unfortunate in my various hats in life to have to deal with various vitriolic trolls. Sadly we all know that when you are in the public domain as a blogger or otherwise you are “putting yourself out there” to these special kind of human beings….these bull**** bully trolls.
Now here’s the thing, I know there are a host of psychological reasons why trolls bully, and why the online trolls troll in the first place.
However aside from all this high brow thinking…I actually have another reason…and it’s a little bit controversial and a lot simpler.
So let’s do a little show of hands here – how many of you have been trolled before? Then how many of you have actually gone to look up that person on social media thereafter (come on, admit you have!).
I am betting that probably without exception, they actually looked something like this.
Yes that’s right.
They resemble a troll in some way, shape or form.
And there you have it. Trolls may troll because they are sadists, or psychopaths but the real reason is a lot simple – it’s because they actually look like a troll, therefore they are one.
There I’ve just said what everyone is probably thinking. Cue a plague of trolls on my comments section.
Have you been trolled? And do you find this conclusion to be true? Or do you think this is utter nonsense? Do leave a comment and let me know your thoughts below…
