I Helped Create the Milo Trolling Playbook—Stop Playing Right Into It | Observer
What ensued was several months of chaos and controversy that ultimately drove Tucker’s book to No. 1 on the New York Times Bestseller list, sold out a multi-college bus tour and ultimately sold millions of dollars worth of tickets, dvds and books.

It was a masterful bit of trolling that admittedly felt a lot more meaningful and exciting when I was younger than it does to me today: We encouraged protests at colleges by sending outraged emails to various activist groups and clubs on campuses where the movie was being screened. We sent fake tips to Gawker, which dutifully ate them up. We created a boycott group on Facebook that acquired thousands of members. We made deliberately offensive ads and ran them on websites where they would be written about by controversy-loving reporters. After I began vandalizing some of our own billboards in Los Angeles, the trend spread across the country, with parties of feminists roving the streets of New York to deface them (with the Village Voice in tow).

Hollywood Reporter -- Trump Tweets Video of Himself Attacking CNN
'CNN has responded with the following statement: "It is a sad day when the President of the United States encourages violence against reporters. Clearly, Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied when she said the President had never done so. Instead of preparing for his overseas trip, his first meeting with Vladimir Putin, dealing with North Korea and working on his health care bill, he is instead involved in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office. We will keep doing our jobs. He should start doing his." -- Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump: My use of social media is not Presidential – it’s MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL. Make America Great Again!'

The Future of Free Speech, Trolls, Anonymity and Fake News Online | Pew Research Center
"Many experts fear uncivil and manipulative behaviors on the internet will persist – and may get worse. This will lead to a splintering of social media into AI-patrolled and regulated ‘safe spaces’ separated from free-for-all zones. Some worry this will hurt the open exchange of ideas and compromise privacy"

Found via Google searching. my skinnymuch alterego back between around 2008-2009. This wasn't my first reddit account, nor likely my last before I stopped visiting. LOL ultra trolling!

It’s Gotten Much Worse: ADA Trolling A Year Later | The New
"As we now have at least two law firms into double digits in caseload, I think the first bad result of the Carlson/Lynch activity is that other attorneys are jumping on the ADA Internet accessibility trolling bandwagon to ride the gravy train of what I’ll call robo-suits. You set your web checker into web crawler mode and sue all violators worth suing, which in the Carlson/Lynch case means a company as small as a Tulsa pizza joint. The cost is minimal, all of the lawsuit threat letters offering a less costly way out than litigation (a statement that reminds me of mobster movies, “you got a nice little business here, it’d be terrible if something would happen to it.) are virtually identical (some name specific consulting companies, most say that Carlson/Lynch would be happy to recommend one) so the only labor there is changing the name of the accused and then sending the threat letter to the unsuspecting defendant. For an average return of $42,500 this seems like a highly profitable protection racket being run by these law firms."
