Philly.com Will “Address Trolls” With New Commenting System
Troll, Definition E: An anonymous internet commenter who posts hateful, vitriolic messages below respectable news stories. I.E., a Philly.com commenter.
But not for long…maybe. Today, a piece in the Inquirer about internet trolling featured some home news regarding a forthcoming commenting policy.
This fall, Inquirer.com, PhillyDailyNews.com and Philly.com will roll out a new comment system to “address ongoing problems with trolls,” says Robert Cauthorn, architect of digital strategy for parent company Interstate General Media, which owns all three entities.
