  1. Good link, thanks. I always thought trolls were people who talked off-topic, trying harmlessly for attention by goading. They try to pull comments off-topic. Maybe with little knowledge of the topic or anything of value to add. But not threatening.

    The people the author quoted wrote abusively. Likely with an intent to harm or intimidate the author into silence or powerlessness.
