In current events, I am irritated by the stories of internet gamer trolls who believe that it is "okay" for their "trash talk" to include threats of violence against female competitors, and, recently, against those who speak out about the practice.

Maybe "don't feed the trolls" will one day give way to "we're all in this together,so let's make it better".
