From a literary point of view, J.R.R. Tolkien's (Middle-earth) trolls are defined as follows:
"...they are portrayed as evil, stupid, with crude habits, although still intelligent enough to communicate with a known language."
So much like the modern-day Internet trolls , there is nothing cute or fuzzy about them. They’re people who like to spread anger on the Internet.
Their game is to start arguments, and post inflammatory, off-topic messages in an online community. They succeed when they upset the people they target.
So how does one deal with an offensive troll? You could simply disengage or block that person from your social media accounts. However, that doesn’t always work. Some trolls are really persistent and beyond annoying and creepy.
Another option is to get help from an IT guru to track the troll's IP address.
For this week's topic, my illustration is of course on trolls. It is illustrated using ink, watercolor and digital drawing.
