You're only giving them what they want, right down to the blubbery woman.
Speaking of which, this needs an "aftab" tag.

Not only do these reporters exploit tragic incidents just like trolls do-- they are providing them with evermore recognition, which is pure fucking troll food. This is the very reason trolls do their thing; this is their actual payoff. And Today Show is most certainly aware of it. Some dark shit right here, yes.
Or maybe they're just really dumb. Well, five stars either way.

"If you're in control you can protect your kids, whether they're alive or after their death."
That, and this especially at 6:20 just left me dumbstruck: "You got to Google your kid's facts so you always know where they are while they're alive, hopefully always."

Now let's see them do the same story replacing the pretty, white teenage girls from middle/upper class families with Chris-chan.

Okay, so: It's going to be a crime to post anonymously with the intent to annoy somebody? How do you pin down anonymous posters? Threaten to charge everybody who could have possibly used that i.p. address? That sounds a bit unlawful.
But then, trolls are idiots, and idiots don't plead the fifth. And thus the legal system justifies itself, yet again. Maybe trolls will just migrate to airports and starbucks' to play their nefarious game of calling people names and being attention whores. And then the FBI will be checking laptops in wireless areas for people saying naughty things to poor, fragile rich white american girls. I'm sure Alex Jones predicted all of this, if you read between the lines. WAKE UP PEOPLE.

"Look at that beautiful girl and forget the negative..." isn't the negative what drove her to hang herself? Aren't you the least bit curious why your daughter chose to commit suicide?
They spent her entire short life "forgetting" about their daughter.

"Intent to Annoy"

The Today Show should also explore the evolution of the "troll" accusation, taking it from its roots of people explicitly going out of their way to shock and irritate people to today's broad definition of the term where anyone who holds an opinion that is contrary to the popular opinion is a troll.

As expected, The Today show producers are unable to understand the troll paradox that explains how actually talking about trolls feeds them further. Browsing any random internet forum will easily show this fact.
if you feed them any more they'll look like that fat woman peering over her glasses; with over-sized rusty metal trinkets tied on as make-shift jewelery, you'll find them living in their parents' musty root-cellar waiting for the next unsuspecting billy goat to commit suicide so they can get their troll on

Today Show is for faggots.
|Ocyrus - 2010-03-31 |
Not all trolls terrorize suicide victims. I troll all the time, going after all kinds of stuff, but I draw the line some places.
Maybe I should hang up my troll hat.
Just be a discriminating troll. Use your powers for, well, not GOOD, but not evil. Um... I don't know point I'm trying to make.

Nice healthy thread heating up over in the dungeons of 4Chan. This woman tempts the Beast.

A cruel new online trend? You're about 20 years too late for that, champs.
Perhaps the cruelest act of trolling was when I convinced alt.music.rush that Neil Peart had died and John Rutsey would be replacing him on the next album.
A cruel new trend that Andy Kaufman was building his career on before anyone had heard of the Internet (or Arpanet, as it was still called).

You know what's really shitty? Letting your daughter get to the point where she hangs herself. Let's outlaw that, too.

This is literally The Onion's Today Now. Aftab even looks like one of their regular guests.

"Who would do something like this?!?!"
Apparently none of these people use Xbox Live, or it would be pretty apparent.
