The Stages of Troll Grief, re Disqus Channel "Sunsetting"
As those of you who don't live under rocks already know, Disqus is closing down its channel system as of September 1st and you have probably come to terms with it. However, a good portion of Disqus' troll contingent are still lingering in the early stages of grief. To wit:
Stage 1: Anger
Stage 2: Desperation
Stage 2a: Self-Deletion (Occurs in only 50% of cases.)
Stage 3: Idiocy
Example: Pretending to get upset that a nazi you gave away your channel to actually hates Jews, especially if you're a racist, sexist pig and condone racism and sexism yourself.
Stage 4: Acceptance
Example: Trying to make your own "blog", realizing it's too hard, setting up Twitter, uh, Slack instead
Please show compassion and help our trolls along to Stage 2a, if at all possible, because as you know, AtDT Cares.
