We haven’t had a case dealing with online troll yet !! However this case we found online is so relevant and sensible, we can not stop ourselves from linking it. It has abundant information on both legal and technical aspects of dealing with a troll. Most importantly it talks in detail about the psychological effects of trolls and how this could be devastating. Finally there is an interesting twist in the tail and it seems to be common occurrence in most of the cases we dealt with as well.
