Many people refer to the angry people on the internet as trolls.
I don’t like to do that because of my visits to Iceland. Norse mythology has many stories of trolls and elves. For Christmas, they have ’13 Yule Lads’ or trolls that bring gifts (and punishments) to children. Icelandic construction projects are sometimes halted due to fear of disturbing elves or trolls. A majority of the country believes in their existence.
So can we call these people on the internet something else? How about a word I already have disdain for? Yankees sounds good. Anyone agree?
