His objects are to hurt people and attract attention to himself. He may post something wildly inflammatory on the site or in direct opposition to the theme of the article. It may be a logically well-written post or a string of obscenities. He gets some gratification just from posting, But gets more gratification when he gets a reply. Now he knows that someone is upset. This is a victory some trolls will sit back and watch other comments get posted by readers or authors whom he has enraged. Other trolls, will continue to post The more replies, criticisms and denunciations, the more gratification he gets.
