(futuristic tones echo) – All right, it’s my
favorite time of the day. Time to respond to some
Above the Noise comments on YouTube, let’s see what
the people are talking about. This channel is BS! You suck. Lame! Good Lord, you’re boring, bro? Ouch. People are mean. (upbeat instrumental music)
Is that what they’re saying? If you’ve ever been on
the internet, like, ever, you’ve probably run
into an internet troll and they are the worst,
like worse than wet socks. (sad horn honking) Trolls are the people who
say crazy, nasty things just to get people all riled up and the internet
is their playground where they love
to taunt everyone. Like, I’m not the only
one trolls come after. Just ask my friend,
Physics Girl. Here’s some of the
comments she’s gotten. – Silly and fake. I thought all blondies are dumb, but I guess every universal
law has an exceptions. I think that they
misspelled their insult. – And I’m wondering, who
are these mean people? What makes someone
an internet troll? All right, so believe it or not, there are real researchers
at big name universities that actually study
online trolling behavior. I mean, it’s a big deal. Trolls can disrupt entire
online communities, so much so that some
news outlets have removed the comment sections from
their websites altogether. Trolling can also lead to some
serious emotional distress. And some groups like LGBTQ,
People of Color, and women seem to get targeted
more than others. For more details, check
out these two surveys from the Data & Society
Research Institute and the Pew Research Center. It’s kind of disturbing,
y’all, but as always, links in the description. OK, so in the academic
world, there’s a variety of different definitions
for trolling behavior. But basically, it’s
behavior that falls outside of acceptable bounds
defined by those, those meaning
online, communities. It can include things like
personal attacks, flaming, swearing, basically comments
meant to stir up trouble, but isn’t that cyber bullying? Sometimes, but not always. Trolling can be different
from cyber bullying in that trolls mainly say
stuff to get attention and amuse themselves at the
expense of online communities, while cyber bullies usually
aim to harm a specific person. So to clarify, trolling
is not just people getting in disagreements
with each other. I mean, it’s totally normal
to have different opinions than someone else and express
that in a respectable manner. I respectfully disagree
with you Lauren. I don’t think Sandlot’s
the greatest movie ever. I think Space Jam’s the
greatest movie ever. – All right, cool. – Perfect. You see how easy it is to
engage in a civil dialogue? OK, so what makes someone
an actual internet troll? Well, there’s been a few studies looking at personality
traits of people who troll. One paper title, and
I’m not making this up, Trolls Just want to
Have Fun, was published in the Journal of Personality
and Individual Differences. It found that trolls tended
to have personality traits associated with
sadism, psychopathy, and machiavellianism, with
sadism being the strongest. And to refresh everyone’s
memory on what these terms mean, sadism is the act of gaining
pleasure from hurting others. Psychopathy is a
personality disorder exhibiting egotistical traits, persistent antisocial behavior, and lack of empathy and remorse. Machiavellianism is
the personality type of master manipulators, people that manipulate
without remorse. And if you think about
it, this makes sense since trolls get a kick
out of upsetting people. And a brand new paper
published in the same journal in December, 2017,
showed similar results. Trolls are more
likely to be males with psychopathy
and sadism traits. So based on this
type of research, it would seem that maybe some
trolls are just born that way, but think about it, trolls
are all over the internet. It’s like you can’t go anywhere
without running into one. Surely they can’t all be
psychopaths and sadists, right? And this is exactly what
researchers out of Stanford and Cornell were curious about, so they designed an experiment
to see if just anybody could be provoked into trolling. Science! OK, so check this out. First they put people in either
a good mood or a bad mood and to do this they
gave them either crazy-hard logic
questions and puzzles and told them they were
doing a terrible job, or they gave them super
easy questions and puzzles and told them they
were doing a great job. I’ll let you guess which
one puts you in a bad mood. Then they divided the people up and asked them to make
comments in a comment section of a mock online news article. The article was
either pre-populated with mean trolling
contents, or it wasn’t. Not surprisingly, troll posts
were highest in the bad mood group whose thread already
had trolling comments. And after some fancy
statistical analysis the researchers found
that negative mood increases the odds
of trolling by 89% and the presence of
prior troll posts increases the odds by
68%, so this suggests that regular old
run-of-the-mill non-sadists can engage in trolling,
too, and that trolling might just be contagious. All of this wasn’t super
surprising to the scientists because, well, there’s
been other research that shows that bad mood and
exposure to antisocial behavior can actually set off
antisocial behavior in others. So maybe trolls
are born and made. Now I want you to think
about your online behavior. Has there ever been a
time where the conditions were just right where
you trolled someone? Think really hard
about this one. I think we’ve all
been there, you know, gotten a kick out of
intentionally annoying someone. Perhaps there’s a little
troll in all of us. Anyway, let us know about
it in the comments below and please, try to
refrain from trolling us. Might I suggest you
take a deep breath, listen to some chill music, maybe treat yourself
to something delicious, and then leave us a comment. Thanks for watching and
remember, stay above the trolls. (upbeat music) Oh, oh, wait, wait, wait, wait,
and if you like this video be sure to check out our

    I have a little guess as to why people would troll more in a bad mood. Maybe the barrier that is the computer screen gives us the idea that "Hey, I can say and do whatever I want without consequence." We are subjected to what I like to call the "Untouchable Affect." where if there is anything separating us from the rest of the world, be it the physical distance between 2 people online, the windshield of a car, or, in the case of world leaders, the many people there to prevent them from being killed, then we tend to subconsciously believe we are free from consequences. I may be wrong, though.

    From what I've seen there are studies saying that men get trolled more.[1] Often because of their political views.[2]
    But in this video they claim that groups like women, LQBTQ and people of colour are targeted more.
    So which is it?

    Like most works on trolling this completely ignores the huge internet communities on social media that troll against other groups, such as racists and antiscience groups.
    Reports on trolls are nearly always negative. But what about the satirical trolls, who go into discussions and disrupt the bubble that others have built?
    Like conspiracy groups where many are 100% certain that their crazy stories are real and some trolls come to make fun of them?
    The trolls might bring up some new information about the conspiracy and then just show how it's all made up and how stupid it is.
    The racist/antiscience groups are usually filled with people who are only there to spread their racism or to make money with their quack products.
    Trolling can lead to the admins having to shut down the group. That's not really a solution to the problem but nobody else does anything against these groups.
    I only know of this because one time some trolls managed to take over some nazi group that was so big that some articles were actually written about it.
    I then found the actual troll group and they are obviously more intelligent than the average group on facebook.
    And there were other stories about "Die Partei" (satirical party in Germany – they basically troll the politics) who did something similar with AfD groups.

    However, I try not to troll and I left that group for lack of interest. I don't want my account to be suspended and I think trolling doesn't really achieve much (the groups just pop up again). Yet I often get called a troll when I discuss unpopular opinions. Some of these trolls don't actually identify as trolls. Some are just called trolls by ignorant people who can't see how wrong they are.

    My local evening newspaper is heavily right-wing and it annoys me enormously, especially a regular column which is supposed to be a light-hearted take on news topics, but is always promoting anti-immigrant and pro-Brexit rhetoric. I continually trolled the comment section because I thought this was a disgusting exploitation of a public platform which should have respected journalistic independence.

    I think anything that gives you an edge in survival will give you some kind of dopamine boost or some enjoyable sensation. The conflict comes when survivalistic behavior turns out to be anti-social (breaks bonds of trust between others) and an "error 404" occurs. The feeling of superiority is a drug in other words. An illusion that you can manufacture and feed off of through anonymity. In tribal times you could imagine trolling to provoke weakness in your enemies. In modern times with the mass connectivity of the world, the only enemy is yourself

    This makes sense.

    As far as trolling, I've tried to limit my trolling comments to what I know is true. However, I have found out that there are people who are actually paid to comment in a trolling fashion. And there are times I trolled a perceived troll with this comment: "How much were you paid to troll?"

    I haven't had one protest, yet, and maybe I alerted a person or 2 to this practice and maybe encouraged them to take trolling with a grain of salt. And maybe I caused a troll or 2 to stop.

    I miss when YouTube allowed for video replies. Ideally, there should have to be more investment in making a comment and require a return investment from someone else in the form of sitting through it.

    I see video replies as being something closer to the proper amount of investment in what's being said. And instead of "likes" and "views", graph people's level of caring by a ratio of number of unique viewers that have seen it to average watching time per viewer.

    Just an idea. Feel free to tear it apart.

    You people don't understand. In the beginning, the Internet really didn't have rules and was used primarily by those that would be considered outcasts in real life. Either because of their niche computer hobby that was foreign to most people, or because they just were just "different." The "trolls" then basically insulted each other the same way the "trolls" do now, and in fact they continue to do so (nice *chan background at 2:34 btw). The lack of rules meant you could say or do whatever you wanted, especially what you weren't allowed to say or do in real life, without any real consequences. Unfortunately everyone else has muscled their way onto the net and has started declaring that there must be rules, just like real life, effectively turning what those same people would consider a "safe space" into a hostile environment. In short, the internet was always this way, and it's naive to think that the rules of real life must apply in a place where real life is irrelevant to how one acts online. Who you are in real life has nothing to do with who you are online, you can be anybody. "Trolls" demonstrate that succinctly. And short of announcing that you're an expert or specialist at something, there's really no reason to break the idea that you are just another nameless faceless person internet.

    The comment sections and discussion forums are being removed from web sites at an alarming rate. They claim they're merely trying to combat trolling, but in fact, it stifles dissent and enables a handful of media giants to maintain complete control of the narrative. I think most folks are capable of handling a few trolls here and there and don't need publishers to interpret the news and decide what is safe for the public to view. I don't mind having to endure some abrasive trolls so that I can exchange ideas and engage in dialogue with others over the events at hand. So now the town square has been co-opted by media giants and there is to be no talking amongst ourselves? Am I the only one who sees this? I think not.

    I experienced this scourge first-hand. 10-15 years ago, Tennis.com was a great place to post comments and read interesting ones, the vast majority coming from real tennis lovers. Nadal-fans and Fed-fans were enjoying civilised discussions. The 2008 Wimby final generated 1500+ comments! Then it slowly became a cesspool of stupid, hateful, partisan comments. Now this section is no more. How sad. It exemplifies how the social and political discourse has evolved over the past years towards radicalization.

    Trolls come in different shapes and sizes. Some 'trolls' just blurt out a string of upper case rants and cut-and-pastes. Other trolls call people names who disagree. But there are many so-called 'trolls' who are just pointing out something that people don't like to hear or refuse to acknowledge. Often 'troll' is just a term that people like to broadly use for those who disagree with approved messaging. While some trolls might be rude or argumentative, I'll take trolls as a whole any day over liars and censorious types.

    I've never trolled anyone. However, I have made reasoned comments that was then trolled. You left out a group of trolls. If you make a verifiable statement that does not line up with a certain type of persons fossilized viewpoint, belief, or faith, then you will become a target. The comments can range from swearing to blanket statements that belittle or call into question your comments, without providing any actual verifiable information to substantiate the rebuttal. I ignore all such comments. I don't read them. Waste of time.

    So trolls are basically trash who have nothing to offer to this society…

    Even being a sadist you can't be totally heartless!

    I'm actually a sadist too, in horror movies where you're supposed to get scared of every single person dying, I literally laugh my ass off seeing heads flying around covered in blood or random people dying, but it's just a movie, stuff is different when we talk about real world…

    Like every human being I have a heart and a soul, and I know what suffer is, I would never laugh to a REAL PERSON that is dieing or thing like that!

    If it is only hurt it is different, as a sadist it is obviouly that I laugh to someone falling from a chair let's say, I even laugh at myself when I get hurt when it happens, but that is actually masochism…

    But laugh to a person that let's say committed suicide, that is totally fucked up!

    Internet trolls are not just sadists, they are the shit of this world, they have no feelings at all!!!

    I came here after watching a video about sad cats, I was actually searching for the "sad cat meme", as a cat-lover I obviously was having a good time watching that video,

    But then the shit-head enters the room, and this only one dude (followed by other two who only replied to him once) who was replying to every single comment by saying fucked up shit like "I like to tie my cat behind my car and then run around, then I lock him in the safe and let him eat shit" and stuff like this really ruin my mood

    I'm already depressed enough, I'm just chilling here trying to have a good day, but then a random fucker has to ruin my almost perfect day, thank you dumbass troll

    I encountered a few trolls during my experience on but this one is literally too exaggerated… I could understand if he said something like "cats stinks" or "cats are ugly", but here we are literally talking about animal abuse not just hating!

    Even if trolls don't mean what they say, so maybe that troll even if he said those thing, he in reality could be a cat-lover too? But still those words are too fucked up…

    You can be sadist or non-emphatic how much you want, but I would like to see you having a good day ruined by a psycho…

    Listen kids, joke as much as you want, but hurting someone's feelings is disrespectful, try to grow up, because society doesn't need shit that increase depression rate, you can all die then!

    To all the normal people, please report shit-heads when you see them, also don't mind replying to them, this is what I did, as the video says trolls like you to play their game, and the more you get angry and sad, the more they are satysfied…

    It is the moment to stand up and know these 2 simple steps

    1) Ignore
    Ignore the maniac, and he will have no toys to play with, so he will be the only one left sad in the end of the day!

    2) Report
    The more we report people that don't behave on the internet, the more they will learn to behave or they will just abandon this habit that they have… And you will have less people ruining you day on the internet!

    If everyone try to ignore and remember to report, we could stop having so many dick-heads ruining our day!

    Thank you for your cooperation!

    Ok, I get all that. However, I do see such mean spirited comments on some un-deserving story lines, that it makes me wonder if people who partake in trolling behavior aren't making themselves worse with each downvote. Like slowly sealing their own fate. Each time they downvote or attempt to hurt others their commitment to being ugly becomes slightly more ensconced within themselves. Like trolling is actually who they become. So is it something they are unable to control? Is this how they lead their lives away from the computer? Do these people have the power to recover themselves? Is this analogous to the lead pipe syndrome of Roman times? I mean it is pretty pervasive.

    I'm used to trolls, we should be, and we should just ignore them especially since this study demonstrated it's the same people doing it again and again. Closing comments sections because of trolls is like shutting down open spaces because a few might abuse them. It's like preventing all free speech at the outset in order to prevent hate speech. Imagine if youtube prevented all commenting? I'm guessing there'd be a lot more grief over that since more people feel like it's a medium that really needs community feedback.

    After years of studying trolls, I finally decided to try it to learn more. It was the only time I've done it and I failed massively. I waited until I was super stressed, created a new character on a mmorpg, got into a channel full of trolls, and gave it a try… got responded to… and cried.
    I guess not everyone can be turned into a troll.
    …Then again, it was a single data point. Perhaps some people need more than others? I don't know. My stress levels were DEFINITELY higher than some difficult math, though.
