what is trolling?

Online trolling is the posting of offensive, upsetting and inflammatory comments  on social media (e.g. Facebook) and micro-blogging sites. Anyone who does it is called a troll.

The term can also be applied to those who post rude and inappropriate opinions and comments on blogs.

The aim of the troll is to post things where they can be seen publicly, and where they can illicit a reaction.

It is important to consider how you might deal with this if it happens to you.

Should visitors to your blog say whatever they want? after all - it's a public space.

The answer is no. 
You don't have to accept any of the above bad, online behaviour.

Remove comments if you want to.
