Blog Trolls

If you have never heard of trolls (apart from the variety that live under a bridge in "Billy Goats Gruff") then I recommend you read this excellent article by Tom Hespos.

Comment Trolls are a fact of life in the blogosphere. Whatever emotional inadequacies these people have there are ways to counteract them.

Tom fits trolls into six categories:
  • The Contrarian
  • The Grammar Nazi
  • The Drama Llama
  • The Rules Lawyer
  • The Ad Troll
  • The Griefer
Good site moderation will nullify the actions of trolls.
