And in the name of privacy, people have picked up their virtual boxing gloves and started winding up the good old one-two punch.

The young man in question received a deluge of criticism from Twitter, and several articles were written on the story.
This resulted in a cry of “bullying,” the suggestion that this man’s life was being destroyed for expressing his opinion. Gawker very recently unmasked one of the biggest trolls in Reddit’s history.
