    Cognitive Empathy vs Affective Empathy + Psychopathy. Interesting.

    Probably none. Truly horrible trolling involves a level of sadism that is relatively uncommon and that is mostly prohibited by our rules. Namely, it involves invasion of privacy and persistent personalized harassment; doxing and cyberstalking. We can at times be "cruel" to people on this forum but as far as I know no veteran poster here possesses the level of invasive obsessiveness to take the shit-talking that occurs here to another (more direct and personal) venue on-line or in the real world.

    Trolling seems to be usually defined as someone that says something that hurts feelings. I get accused of it all the time and I'm not trolling, I'm just being blunt about racial equality or Islamic Law or whatever.
