Team Mentality – The Anonymity Effect

Trolls. We’ve all seen them, we all feed them, and intentionally or unintentionally, we have probably all been them at some point. (Call of Duty, Dota 2, Halo, PS3, PS4, Wii, Wii U, World of Warcraft, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Cool read, trolls are normally harmless and funny but people that are flat out rude and swear at you for no reason are the worst. Show some respect.

Too right.
In fact, you know what?
I wish, that just for one month, someone would find a way of stripping the internet of its anonymity on public message boards like this one and so many others.
Just for one month, no more.


End it a week after that month, and DON'T LET THEM KNOW IT STOPPED...

Watch how many people suddenly backtrack and grow some decency and maturity when their words can have personal consequences for once; the most lethal weapon against any troll is the threat, when it can be proven to actually happen, of being forced to own up to their actions towards others.

Anywhere else out there in the world, where they aren't safe behind a precious computer screen, they'd get a few teeth knocked loose for antagonizing people for s***s and giggles, at best.
At worst....well, they wouldn't be around much longer...
