I think the lines between trolling and bullying definitely blurs into each other. As does the difference between a heated argument and trolling. It is not even always clear to the person arguing or trolling. People are triggered by different things, have different thresholds for strong language, and it is very difficult to determine the tone, emotion and intention behind written comments. I also find that people often post, or share material on the internet and expect absolutely no criticism or dissension. Many people I know treat sharing and posting on social networks like hanging posters on their bedroom walls. So any level of negative comment is viewed in a harsher tone than the commenter intended. At least that is my experience.

Reading short fiction on the occult gives me an odd sense of wonder. Part of me wants there to be some secret deep chasm of knowledge and power and whatnot in the world; to discover what few others are privy to. Then again with occult fiction, no one seeking these things ever fares well... what is to be found is never pleasant, and the means to attaining these secrets always seems to involve death and maiming (and often weird sex).

Just finished reading Allan Moore's Saga of the Swap Thing: Vol. 1. Anyone else just entirely blown away by some of these panel layouts? I could spend hours staring at these.

 I often can't stand the person who's decided that they're starring In MST3K... You know... making jokes about every single action and line they can. I get it, you're hilarious... now be quiet.

This had some fun snippets in it. I particularly enjoyed the article about the Great Gatsby that they mention.
