The dark side

I found this New York Times Magazine story about online "trolls" to be downright disturbing.

There are some sick folks out there. It's also made me question (again) the wisdom of using my real-world name here.

One of the reasons why I hide behind a pseudonym...

The other being that I don't want my friends/colleagues/clients to know how deeply disturbed I really am.

My excuse is simple....there are enough sick and crazy people in the world....its easier to give a hint...if there'd be anybody smart enough to crack the hint, he'd be smart enough not to be a sicko!

but this indeed is tragic!
