    1. Early on, circa 2015, there was a while when every first-person writer who might once have written a Tumblr began writing a TinyLetter. At the time, the writer Lyz Lenz observed that newsletters seemed to create a new kind of safe space. A newsletter’s self-selecting audience was part of its appeal, especially for women writers who had experienced harassment elsewhere online.

      What sort of spaces do newsletters create based upon their modes of delivery? What makes them "safer" for marginalized groups? Is there a mitigation of algorithmic speed and reach that helps? Is it a more tacit building of community and conversation? How can these benefits be built into an IndieWeb space?

      How can a platform provide "reach" while simultaneously creating negative feedback for trolls and bad actors?

    1. « Ça fait des années que je suis trollée sur Internet parce que je suis féministe, j’ai même porté plainte pour menace de mort, des plaintes qui n’ont pas eu de suites […] Le simple fait de mettre un hashtag #féminisme sur Twitter lorsque je publie un article déclenche la plupart du temps des trolls. Ce sont souvent des commentaires qui viennent de la fachosphère ou des sympathisants de la Manif pour tous »

      Le flaming et le trolling sont souvent exercés par des personnes qui cherchent à entrer en conflit. Un troll peut tout à fait rechercher du contenu sur Internet avec le hashtag #féminisme simplement pour trouver des personnes à provoquer ou insulter.

    2. Mais, dans le langage courant, les flamers sont souvent qualifiés de trolls.

      Le trolling et le flaming ont le même objectif : provoquer un débat ouvert, souvent interminable. Mais là où le troll peut se contenter de provoquer/énerver leur cible simplement en émettant des opinions opposés aux siennes, le flaming va s'opérer en envoyant une salve de messages haineux et insultants.

    1. The biggest trolls, assholes, and bullies set the trajectory of many controversies and start to distort our notion of what most people in the other tribes are like. It doesn't help that it's perversely satisfying to gaze at those other tribes, the ones with whom you did not associate yourself, and to imagine that they're inferior.

    1. The very best/worst trolls can even make the non-sociopaths believe "for the lulz" is itself a noble cause.

      Yes! That's the worst. I've never liked "for the lulz". This point should be more widely understood and its effects more widely regarded as harmful. This language tries to hide destruction behind whimsy so that those who oppose are opposing "fun", but the fun is not evenly distributed and for the victims is often not fun at all.
