Do not feed the troll - Internet trolls

.
What is an internet troll?

Internet slang, a troll a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting quarrels or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response. Internet trolls can frequent online platforms such as chat-rooms, social media websites and so on. Some trolls even go as far as intervening in others social lives.

It's debatable as to whether the internet trolls do have mental ailments, or whether they're sociopath or just the average person. The truth is an internet troll can be anyone, or even someone you know. To stay safe on the internet it is advisable to not give personal details out; overall, those can be shared to the online community and spread like wildfire. There are even instances where sensitive information such as bank account details and social security numbers, explicit pictures can be leaked to spite a person as well as exploit them.

Furthermore, 'Revenge porn' is something which is rife on the internet, famous people such as Cassie Ventura and vanessa hudgens and Tulisa contostavlos (N-dubz) have had their pictures explicitly leaked. Of course mentioning, could be considered exploitation, but that is already an example of how you can exploit someones personal information innocently, with no harm intended. Certain celebrities have been able to get court injunctions against their perpetrators in order to secure a more private life and avoid the further circulation of their personal pictures people leaked.

Moreover, 'revenge porn' is something people do which is malicious and intended to embarrass an individual regardless of their social status, more so celebrities can be vastly affected also because of their significant celebrity presence; their fame. Perpetrators intend to infiltrate and ruin the lives of various celebrities; but it is no surprise this is something that an average person can experience. Sadly, people will continue to harass, demean others online this can be for the following reasons: race, gender, nationality, religion. The list will go on.

Finally, One of the most powerful things one can do is ignore 'internet trolls', but sadly this is not something everyone can do, hence, people choosing to self-harm and take their own lives. Singer 'Zendaya', was bullied online because of the physical appearance of her parents, so she took to twitter to defend herself and humour trolls, however, not everyone is confident and emotionally strong enough to do so. Internet trolling is definitely something I have experienced, to a profound degree, but the best and safest way to deal with the situation is either to report it to the authorities if you can just ignore it.
