Schadenfreuddit

There’s an excellent article on Gawker about Reddit and internet trolling — and about one troll in particular, Violentacrez, aka Michael Brutsch.  It’s absolutely riveting, and worth the second-hand exposure to pervy Redditors and their moral codes. (Posting thousands of pictures of 14-year-old girls? A-okay! Revealing someone’s real identity? Shocking!). Brutsch has lost his job over his posts (which didn’t stop at underaged creeper pics), Reddit is really mad at Gawker, the journalist who wrote the article feels mildly guilty, and a group of women is getting even. It’s a very satisfying read.
