“I hack, I ruin, I make piles of money. I make people afraid for their lives. … Trolling is basically Internet eugenics. I want everyone off the Internet. Bloggers are filth. They need to be destroyed. Blogging gives the illusion of participation to a bunch of retards. … We need to put these people in the oven!”

“Weev,” a star among the new, more malicious generation of Internet trolls, interviewed in a Sunday Times Magazine piece by Mattathias Schwartz

    How absurd that the lunatic ravings of an incoherent, pimple-faced adolescent weiner who got beat up in the schoolyard should be represented as the menacing threat of an (imaginary) hero he invented on some dweeb game site, with affected power to destroy with his cyber-illusions a system put together by real people – instead of by delusional masturbators like him. Just because you can stretch the boundaries of reality in a written post doesn’t mean that you can actually accomplish anything – negative OR positive. Go ahead, loser troll, bring it on; I’ll wring your fat, sweaty neck and feed you to my dogs. Just wash your hands before you touch the keyboard; wouldn’t want to catch anything from those “piles of money” you handle. You do wipe your hands with them after one of your, ah, self-exciting posts, don’t you?

  • Pathetic. And I’m not sure I’m thrilled with the Times for giving these gits a platform. Just makes them think they are WAY l33t3r than they really are. I’ve always felt sort of sorry for them that their lives were so empty that they had nothing better to do than troll. I guess the article did sort of drive that home, though.
