noob22 writes “According to BBC Online, ‘An “internet troll” who posted obscene messages on Facebook sites set up in memory of dead people has been jailed. Colm Coss, of Ardwick, Manchester, posted on a memorial page for Big Brother star Jade Goody and a tribute site to John Paul Massey, a Liverpool boy mauled to death by a dog. The 36-year-old “preyed on bereaved families” for his “own pleasure,” Manchester Magistrates Court heard.’” My favorite line: “Unemployed Coss was only caught when he sent residents on his street photos of himself saying he was an internet ‘troll.’”
