How news organizations are battling the scourge of trolls in the comment section

How news organizations are battling the scourge of trolls in the comment section | Go Social Media | Scoop.it
Everyone on the internet knows the mantra: ‘Don't read the comments'.
Jody_COC's insight:

Stroud says that one explanation for the results is that people are less likely to troll when they feel like they’re being heard by a recognizable person from the news, something they don’t get from an unknown staffer using the company logo as an avatar. As for why they troll, other research has shown that anonymity brings out the worst in people who already fit the troll profile. A University of Manitoba study titled “Trolls just Want to Have Fun” shows that these nasty commenters often have the “Dark Tetrad” of personality traits: narcissism, psychopathy, sadism and Machiavellianism.
