The HBS Trolls are bullies, pure and simple.
They use anonymity to keep from being punched back by people fed up with their bullying.
I have a troll name Jennifer Usher who devotes at least a third of her blog to trashing and abusing me. This troll is so spoiling for a fight, she challenges me to come to her blog and debate her.
Sorry Jennifer, I have better things to do than get down and dirty wrestling you in a pig pen filled with mud and shit.
Others hide themselves behind masks and aliases. Claiming they are “stealth” when real stealth has become nearly impossible for anyone who transitions later than about two years old. There are literally dozens if not hundreds of private data collecting services that know your entire life history. Not to mention governmental ones.
Others act as though being transsexual or transgender is something so shameful they are only able to speak the truth from behind a screen.
That doesn’t cut it either when one rarely if ever hears anyone who defends TS/TG people claiming the they have to hide behind a mask to do so.
One of the things I like most about Facebook is how having pictures and profiles as well as monitors civilizes the discourse.
Perhaps it is time for bloggers to crack down on the Troll Bullies and plonk them from commenting.
I have a string of names on moderation, and others who are permanently barred form posting to this blog.
I’ve modeled this blog after a newspaper, albeit a progressive underground paper from the 1960s. It has a point of view. My position is if you don’t like it start your own blog that reflects your point of view. Commenting here is a privilege not a right to come here and use my platform to spread your bigotry.
