interview with a troll

Fascinating glimpse into the mind of an Internet troll. Yes, this person is clearly immature with way too much time and a deep level of insecurity, as might be expected, but who turns out to be surprisingly articulate and reflective at the same time. A stereotype, sure, but a very human being with clear, well-considered motives and a genuine and zealous pride in what seems to others to be a malevolent and unkind activity.
