Trolls Be Hatin'

I know it’s been forever since I’ve updated, fic or rl, but I had to share.

So, my job is online brand protection. Basically, companies hire me to make sure people aren’t selling knock-off products under their name or other internet-type shenanigans. Anyway, I had this guy write me claiming to be offended because a certain website (on online forum) was not, in fact, affiliated with a certain company… One back ground check later: the guy owns a competing forum!  I’m so tempted to be the hand of karma and bitch slap the guy.

I went digging through his forum and found him and his cohorts had some fun stringing along a Chinese domain hosting company a few months back. He’s possibly looking to repeat the experience; stirring up all sorts of corporate panic by complaining to the right/wrong people. Not going to work buddy, I’ve been in online fandom for 15 years. I know all about trolling.
