Apparently there is at least one troll out there who finds it fun to email Carolina Hurricanes content creators on their personal email, and proceed to not only criticize their writing about Tony DeAngelo, but say that I, as a site editor, have sent my staff out to do my bidding.
I have addressed NUMEROUS times that trolls, gatekeepers and over all pot stirring is for ignorant boot heels with too much time and too little else to do. We’re all doing this for fun.
For evidence, I will submit the following articles. I know a word like “evidence” might be hard for some folks so I will also used the word “proof” to encompass everyone.
Social media dust ups are part of the game. We all know that I have caused my share. In person, I have acted kindly to the folks that too the most offense, and moved on as worthy rivals. Online I’ll even occasionally spar with a troll. I don’t start many conversations with those that lack sufficient intelligence, but I will nonetheless talk back to someone if spoken to.
However to email someone on a personal email, away from social media, goes passed creating social media frenzies. What was written, and the tone in which is was written was reprehensible. It only shows the lack of decency on the part of the author.
As for the specifics of the email, I can say that I have in fact made my opinions on the issue decidedly clear. From the start, and rather loudly.
While for this particular troll, proof does not matter, I will again point to the following articles as evidence I have not sent anyone out to do what I have not already done.
When the final count is taken, someone decided they had the right to harass someone on a personal email, when they lacked the ability and wherewithal to do it on an appropriate platform. Why that person did so is beyond me, but I have encouraged our content creator to move on. A troll is always going to keep trolling, but perhaps it would behoove them to get some rest, drink a bottle of water, and maybe get out side to move around a little. It will help.
