Trolling at CBC


CBC allows readers to post comments on news articles and there is a running battle in these posts between the left and right, even when the article has nothing to do with politics.

The persons leading this battle are Trolls for the most part and the most common of them are from the right side of the political perspective.

One interesting thing that CBC does is it creates a page for each commenter that allows others to see the total collection of comments by that person. Some of these are better than stand up comedy.

Here is a typical Right of centre commenters page. Notice the abuse of personal attacks “lefties” , “grow up”, “Yap yap yap”,”Clowns” and even the name Red-Is-Lies etc….
