It wuzn’t plum some bunch uh angry, shockin', monkeys on keybo'ds. Trolls wuz subtle. What it is, Mama. Right On! Flames wuz eloquent and surgically precise. What it is, Mama. Right On!

Newcomers, wid no knowledge uh de 'esistin' culture, no' de patience t'observe and abso'b it, saw dese writin's and mistook dem fo' Righteous Anger. Ah be baaad... And dey gots it into deir 'haids dat da damn Way Of De Net wuz t'spout off whuteva' idiotic dought dat crossed yo' mind, a'cuz dat sucka' gotss'ta neva' be able t'get back at me and Free Speech, Murica. Right On!
