Let's tackle internet trolls and call them what they really are - real-world bullies
It's been a bad week for women on the internet. Singer Lily Allen got floods of cruel tweets about her child's stillbirth. The singer tweeted that she had lived with PTSD ever since the event but Twitter users could only blame her for her own son's death.
So there we have it. A vile example of the world of trolling and unfortunately, cases like Allen's have been cropping up with increasing regularity.
Another victim, Irish blogger Rosemary MacCabe, generated 120 Boards.ie pages of personal bile this week after writing a blog post about why she didn't report her rapist. Hello world, we have a troll problem and we'll have to figure out what we're going to do about it.
