Online Trolls...

Unfortunately, it’s fairly common to run into a troll within the internet space. About 65% of people 18-to29-year-olds have encountered trolls online.

One of the most common red flags that you’re dealing with an online troll? Bad grammar. Watch out for ALL CAPS, goofy words (puh-leaze instead of “please”), or a ton of exclamation points (!!!!!!!). The bad grammar is usually paired with an immature comment.

Examples of troll-like behavior? If everyone loves a video online, they will write a comment saying how much the video sucks. Write a heartfelt post on your favorite forum? Nowhere on the internet is safe. A troll will find a way to respond in derogatory way.
