The precarious thing about the world wide web commonly known as the internets is that there are very little consequences for the actions of the masses. The interweb is the Wild Wild West in that I can call Mike Tyson a baby back bitch with zero fear of retribution. Insults on the web are like punching a handcuffed person and often times, they say more about you than the person your flinging insults at.

I’ve worked on this beast for a couple years now, and I can’t tell you how many insults I’ve received. Some of them I still think about in the shower: “How did that guy from Alabama with webcam profile picture know I have a micro-penis?,” I ask myself, sobbing. Here are a couple of the insults I got on just one article.

A lot of times, the trolls just want to be heard. Want to know that they’ve gotten to you. And that’s what happened when a 32-year-old guy named Jeremy randomly called Sarah Silverman a ‘Cunt’ on Twitter. No context. Just pure vitriol.
