In 2013, journalist Ginger Gorman was trolled online. She received scores of hateful tweets, including a death threat. A picture of Ginger heavily pregnant alongside her husband and two-and-half year old daughter appeared on a fascist website. Understandably she was terrified, but once the attack subsided, she found herself curious. Who were these trolls? How and why did they coordinate such an attack? And how does someone fight back against a troll? Over the next five years Gorman spoke to psychologists, trolling victims, law enforcement, academics and, most importantly, the trolls themselves, embedding herself into their online communities and their psyches in ways she had never anticipated. What she discovered was both profoundly shocking and fascinating. Syndicates of highly organised predator trolls across the globe systematically set out to disrupt and disturb. Some want to highlight the media's alleged left-wing bias, some want to bring down capitalism, and some just want to have fun. Even if it means destroying someone's life ... An intense and compelling read, Troll Hunting is an important window into not just the mindset and motivation of trolls, but the history of this kind of aberrant behaviour. Ginger Gorman has gained unprecedented access to trolls, even formed strange and enduring relationships with them, and her comprehensive investigation into what makes them tick has given us a brilliant book that is impossible to put down.… (lisätietoja)

“Words are a weapon - and a gateway to much greater harm.”

In 2013, journalist Ginger Gorman became the victim of an online witch hunt when a couple she had interviewed about the success of same sex adoption were arrested three years later on charges of producing and distributing child pornography. She was targeted by hateful tweets, subjected to death threats, doxxed, and threatened by hundreds of largely anonymous trolls. The experience was terrifying, but once the vitriol began to recede, Gorman became curious about the world of cyber hate and the trolls who fuel it.

In Troll Hunting: Inside the World of Online Hate and its Human Fallout, Gorman examines the phenomenon of trolling. The narrative, a mix of subjective and objective detail, research, and opinion, is accessible and fascinating, exploring its causes, and its effects.

Gorman’s focus is particularly on those she identifies as predator trolls, whose motives for their actions have little to do with their target, and everything to do with their own narcissistic desire to agitate, offend and degrade. In the hopes of understanding them she spoke with several trolls, even developing a relationship of sorts with a few, and shares her interviews with them. Unlike Gorman I wasn’t surprised to learn that trolls come from all walks of life, though they seem to be overwhelmingly young white males. Some trolls claim their actions are just for the ‘lulz’, others ascribe loftier motives to their behaviour, and then there are those who delight in humiliating and tormenting their targets, sociopaths and sadists for whom the Internet is a endless sea of victims. Few of them are willing to reflect on, admit to, or take responsibility for, the psychological, physical, and economic harm they cause when the anonymity of online discourse affords them the indulgence of socially inappropriate behaviour without consequence.

I have never had any doubt that trolling has real word consequences for the victims who become targets, no right-minded person should. Unfortunately it is taking too long for not only the law and law enforcement to recognise the damage it can inflict, and incite, but also many in wider society who still stubbornly reiterate the playground maxim “sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me”, despite evidence to the contrary.

I was perhaps expecting a more thorough psychological profile of trolls than is explored in this book, nevertheless Gorman provides important observations about trolling behaviour and motives generally. I agree in part with the conclusions she has drawn about its causes, though I still believe other issues are also significant contributors.

Providing valuable and thought provoking insights into the issue of cyberhate and trolling, Troll Hunting is a fascinating and perceptive read. ( )

I began this book on 17th February 2019 and had read all but one chapter by 15th of March, it's taken me the intervening three months to come back to it. Why? Because on the 15th of March a man of the type that this book is about took up an automatic weapon and slaughtered 51 people in two Mosques in Christchurch NZ. Ginger Gorman is a journalist who dived into the murky and dangerous world of internet trolling after she and her family were trolled and threatened online. This is an investigation of the twisted and dangerous world of online trolling, the trolls themselves, the real world consequences of damaged and destroyed lives and the so far inadequate responses from social media companies, law enforcement and governments. An important, if depressing, read. ( )
