When The Trolls Come Out To Play

     Most writers dream of having an article become viral on the internet. It has been on my bucket list for a long time. I've submitted humorous posts to dozens of websites, and although they were shared on social media, none ever made it to viral status.

     On a hunch, I submitted an older, poignant piece I'd written about my son to The Huffington Post (you can read it here). Within 24 hours, the post went viral. Was I elated? Yes. But I was also naive about the backlash it would create.

     At first, the support I received on the article was encouraging and compassionate. Unfortunately, it didn't take long for the internet trolls to come out to play. They circled like hungry sharks, and when the meat of my post was dropped into their tank, they went into a feeding frenzy.  My stomach was soon in knots--- I had to close my laptop and walk away. There were hundreds of comments on the site, but I stopped reading them after the first handful of cruel remarks were posted.

     This experience, on many levels, has been successful…. but it has also baffled me. Who are these trolls and why do they feel the need to bash writers? I was accused of being a horrid mother raising a demon seed, and told that I deserve what I get with my teenage son. I had to assume these remarks came from Stepford parents who had perfect children.  I was also labeled as a "whiner" (surely they meant "winer" since I have a fondness for pinot grigio) and a person lacking any skills in writing  (check back with me on that one after my book is published in a few months). The overwhelming, snarky responses had me wondering if there was a full moon out or the possibility that somewhere in the world, a group of people on a compound drank too much grape-flavored Kool-Aid.

     I fully support freedom of speech, but I was also raised with the old adage, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." Have I read material that I thought was garbage? Of course. But I never felt the need to attack the writer by challenging his or her position. What these trolls fail to understand is that there are ways to debate issues and share personal opinions without sinking to belittling and name calling. Spewing venomous remarks on a writer's post tells me that this person has yet to outgrow the bullying tactics they learned from their days on the elementary school playground.

     I've come to the conclusion that this brand of nastiness is derived from insecurities and unhappiness, driving these people to spread their misery to others. They're well aware of their insufficiencies and are transferring their frustrations onto everyone else in order to build themselves up. The same can be said about trolls in the workplace and in extended families. Rather than feed into their anger by becoming defensive, I've learned to shrug them off. I pity them more than anything; they have yet to grasp the concept of confidence and true happiness.

     Ironically, the people who attack writers are actually helping them to succeed. The drama and controversy they create drives more traffic to the writer's site, enabling it to become viral. For that, I am grateful….but don't expect a thank you note from me anytime soon.

     Here's my suggestion to all the internet trolls who thrive on tearing others down: If you have time to write long, sarcastic diatribes on an author's article, then you have far too much time on your hands. I suggest that you put that extra time and energy into something more productive, such as volunteer work in your community. Perhaps THEN you'll discover manners, humility and grace.


Have you been attacked by internet trolls? Let's hear it!

  1. Well said my friend!!!! I was so thrilled for your success last week but so angry at the fools who felt that they had to resort to name calling to make their point. I have seen this happen to many of my friends to the point that I was scared of ever going viral. Last week I too had a great week and so my post sweep the internet. And I had my share of below the belt comments, but I kept reminding myself that there are always going to be people who want to shut us up and stop us from speaking our minds. In the end I was so glad that I got over my fear and spoke my mind, trolls be dammed!!! And I must say that it helped to know that we were going through it together! Safety in numbers!!! Congratulations on a great post and congratulations on it not stopping you!!!! xoxo

    1. I was so happy for you too, Kathy! I thought your HP post was AWESOME and could not believe the nasty attacks. I did feel better knowing I wasn't alone in this type of troll attack over there---and I'll admit---it did us both a lot of good, LOL! Trolls be damned!!!

  2. A thick skin is necessary in this current age. So glad a few like you stick to saying nothing rather than being nasty. But just like you said, other people are fundamentally unhappy and striving to drag others down to their level. If I shrug any harder at them I will damage my shoulders. But you seem like someone who generates happiness from within, so you'll be fine, generally.

    1. It's hard not to take what the trolls say personally, but this experience taught me a lesson. A blogger friend gave me some good advice----the minute you see a troll comment on a viral post, stop reading the rest of the comments because they really are like circling sharks come to feed. IGNORE THEM.

  8. Marcia, I hate that they attacked you, but as we all know that's one of the downsides of the internet. I haven't written anything controversial enough to be attacked yet, but I feel like when my book is published, I'll get a lot of hate mail. People can be so cruel from behind their monitor, but I can guarantee that if you were to sit down with them face to face, they might not be so brave. It's easy to be an anonymous troll. One thing I'm learning from one of my author friends is that with writing comes the necessity to build thick skin. Haters gonna hate, so as someone who has read so much of your stuff, just know what you have far more lovers than you do haters. And damn those trolls.

  9. Death to all trolls. They are mean-spirited, miserable, despicable people who obviously have nothing better to do. Learn to laugh at their insanity. The best revenge is your success, which you have already achieved and that is something a troll will NEVER enjoy. If they did, they wouldn't have the time or the mindset to troll. You're a great mother who was willing to speak honestly about a teenager acting out. (Like nobody else's teenager has ever done in the history of mankind.)

  12. Trolls go away if no one responds to them - best to let them have their say and then be forgotten while you continue to post new material.

  13. This is so well said. My audience is much smaller than yours, so I have not been exposed to much of this negative and toxic behavior.

  14. Whoa! I'm not sure why some people were so angry. Opinions are like armpits, we all have them and you were just expressing yours. People have a right to retort, but sinking to angry and childish outbursts is not the way to do it.

    I always believe that a good writer is one that elicits emotions, whether they are positive or negative and you certainly did that. All they're doing is bring you more publicity and who doesn't want that? I admire you for not rising to their bait, because in the end, you come away looking far more dignified then those trolls.

  19. I've had some minor bashing on other sites, but nothing major. I'm not exactly controversial in most of my writing but the trolls don't need you to be.
    There are some sites known to be troll hang outs. You have to either stay away or really prepare yourself for their vitriol but you are certainly not going to change them.
    One thing that was heartbreaking for me is when a blogging friend emailed me after first posting on one of those sites and being bashed. She's a sweet person and a good writer and I hated to see her hurt. Like you just did, we talked it out, made some observations concerning who those kinds of comments really reflect on and I think she came to terms with having being treated that way. But seriously, what a thing to have to come to terms with.

  30. Oh, lovey, I'm so proud of you! That you have haters means you've made it!!! Yes, the comments make you feel like crap, of course, (criticism does that), but like you basically said, There's no such thing as bad publicity. So you have to take the good with the bad. My belief is: If you believe the good reviews, then you must also believe the bad. So don't take either too seriously. As difficult as it is, try to remain somewhat neutral.

  31. This is a great article, and I'm sure you are a wonderful mom. I read your posts everyday. I get them in my email. I just took a look at some of what has been coming your way, and I would say am shocked, but unfortunately I'm not. I've had some of it come my way, but not like this. I'm so sorry. It must feel like a deluge of people who do not even know what they are talking about. I have 3 wonderful adult children, but as teenagers, not so much at times. We all do the best we can, and for people to criticize is inappropriate. They do not live in your home or walk in your shoes. I'm not sure why they feel that the right to be nasty, just because you wrote and shared it. Anyway, you keep writing, and I'll keep reading. Also, keep sharing at my party. I really do look forward to your posts.

  32. Congratulations on your post going viral and on your upcoming book. What a bit you had so many negative comments. You are spot on when you say that this type of behaviour is "derived from insecurities and unhappiness, driving these people to spread their misery to others." What we deny in ourselves is what we see in others, so I agree too that they attacking others "in order to build themselves up."
    I'd say you did exactly right not to feed their anger by engaging with them. It is sad that people can be so lacking in compassion that they need to attack others to feel of any value.

  35. Oh Marcia this hurts my heart for you. DO NOT LISTEN TO THE TROLLS! They are people whocome to an article wanting to be negative and hateful. It's not you that they're mad at or dislike. It's anyone. Don't take it personally. You're right about it coming from insecurities with themselves. I think they like to put people down beause it makes them feel better.

    Plus, they're too big of pu$$ies to say those things to someone's face so they take to the internet.

    I get seriously trolled from time to time. I've been told I'm a horrible person, fat, ugly, stupid, a c*nt, that violence needs to happen to me and that I'm selfish and enjoy putting others down. Um, no.

    My husband gets angry when people troll my stuff but I find it entertaining. As I tell him, if we were walking down the street and someone yelled out "You're ugly and a horrible person," what would we think? We would think that person is crazy. It's the same thing with trolls. Who cares what hey think? They don't even have a face or a real name. Cowards. They're cowards.

    And I think you are an amazing woman and a wonderful mom. You're caring and giving and funny and an excellent writer. I'm happy to know you and am thrilled about your book. With success comes haters, so take this as an indication that you've made it!

  39. Trolls attack those who are successful with great talent because they don't have that special gift themselves. They want to be like you, they want to succeed like you, raise their kids like you raised yours and in fact, they want to be YOU but they fail over and over again, like mad dogs. That's why they attack.

    No, it's not nice to read horrid things but they have unknowingly helped to circulate your marvelous work to those who may not have seen it otherwise. The trolls deserve a 'thank you' because their negativity will always be turned into a blessing of positivity for you.

    We love your work MM. Don't let anyone come in and rain on your parade. KICK THEIR BUTTS OUT of your mind and emotion. Buy yourself a nice jar of Nutella and eat slowly and let's raise our wine glasses (about 4) and say 'cheers' to the lesser ones...

I got really pissed actually when I read what some people were saying to you. My mamma has said the same things to me. And frankly if I had talked to my mamma and daddy that way I would have been beat. Neither here nor there though. My parents taught me and my brother (younger) that we had to work for what we have. My daddy was and is a trucker who was/is gone 90% of the time and while I hated that he was gone, I appreciated it. My mamma was a SAHM for years and then went to school when I was in Jr. High to get a cosmetology degree and we supported her every step of the way.

    I hate that people can hide behind a computer screen and spew out such hatred.
    It all just shows how wonderfully brave you are to write such touching, poignant articles and attach them with a real name. They are worse than cowards. I'll never understand why sites like Huff Po allow them. There has to be a better way to go thru some verified commenting process.

  44. I'm sorry you had to read the crapola. People can be so inconsiderate, and when those kinds of people are let loose anonymously, it can be even worse.

    I blogged once about an airline not wanting to let me sit next to my Kindergartner on an airplane. I got a few really rude e-mails (I am presuming from the same person, though they were different email addys) noting how much they hated parents who whined about not being able to sit next to their kids. To that I say, Phft. I didn't even bother to respond. And I still get very worked up about the airline thing. We had similar issues in June when we flew, and from the looks of the comments I got on my post, it's not uncommon (on many airlines). Crazy stuff that, but I digress. :)

  47. Welcome to the world of fame, my friend. When you put yourself or your work out there, you're going to get feedback...negative as well as positive. And yes, there are a whole underclass of people out there just looking to s**t on anyone they can. The best thing to do is not feed them. Also keep in mind they're helping to spread your work.

    It's something to think about as you put your book together. You may get negative reviews, you may have people attacking your "baby". It comes with the territory. The absolutely *worst* thing you can do is react badly...the only thing worse than being attacked by trolls is going viral because you're a Writer Who Behaved Badly. Google the name Jacqueline Howett to see what happens to writers who react badly to critics or trolls.

    I know you haven't done that...just be forewarned because it's easy to lose your temper with these folks.

  48. It is EXACTLY like having a baby you think is beautiful, and then having a room full of people tell you everything that is wrong with your child, to the point of calling him ugly. But yes,I know better than to feed them. I prefer to leave them in the tank to chew each other apart.

  49. So thankful you shared this with me, Marcia--gracias! Since this is really my first go-round with the trolls, I wasn't fully prepared. I had heard through the greats like yourself and a few others that when they surface, their main goal is to say the most disgusting, mean, vile things they can. I want to feel bad for them because they either weren't hugged enough as children or they're going through some real sh*t right now, yet I can't help but also feel the urge to want to kick them in their throats. Thanks for this! xo
