    This paper examines the emergence of organized trolling behaviors on the internets, specifically in relation to memorial groups and fan pages. In addition to mapping the development of RIP trolling — in which online instigators post abusive comments and images onto pages created for and dedicated to the deceased — the paper also examines the highly contentious and ultimately parasitic relationship(s) between memorial trolls, Facebook’s social networking platform and mainstream media outlets. Recalling Oring’s account of disaster humor, the paper goes on to suggest that, inadvertently or not, Facebook memorial page trolling presents a pointed critique of a tragedy–obsessed global media.

    ive been trolling since windows 97 and before that i was obsessed with prank phonecalls and other tricks.

    i think the outcome of all of this will be that people will toughen up and stop giving a shit about trolling altogether and anyone who gets angry or upset will be laughed at and ridiculed.

    i think this will be a great thing for society and ironically lead to national, if not global peace.

    hail the trolls, saviors of humanity!

    "And then a woman was killed by a whale."

    Never has a sentence fragment made me laugh harder.

    " and lends itself tlda particular brand of ego–investment and emotional sensitivity."
    Lol typo.

    Edit: A fairly amusing read from an anthropological perspective. Kind of strange that she cites FB as the creation of this phenomenon, and the Daily Mail as a legitimate news source.
