    Trolls, Heal Thyselves

    Trolls, Heal Thyselves

    The New York Times had an Op-Ed yesterday complaining about anonymous trolls on blogs who post inflammatory messages to get a reaction:

    Trolling, defined as the act of posting inflammatory, derogatory or provocative messages in public forums, is a problem as old as the Internet itself, although its roots go much farther back.

    What do we call non-anonymous trolls who post inflammatory, derogatory or provocative messages in public forums to get a reaction?

    Frank Rich
    Maureen Dowd
    Gail Collins
    Nicholas Kristof
    Paul Krugman

    And what do we call the place which pays for such non-anonymous trolling?

    The Gray Lady

    And what do we call the place which pays for such non-anonymous trolling?

    I don't think it's fair to single out the NY Times like that (and aren't they the "Yellow Lady" now, anyway?).

    The Washington Post, with such luminaries as Richard Cohen and Eugene Robinson, certainly deserves consideration as well.

    File under Double Standards, Liberal.

    When a Liberal says something provocative,it's "clever" and "witty" and "cerebral".

    When a Conservative does, it's "inflammatory" and "dangerous".

    So tired of it.
    Fix Bayonets!
