Have you ever left an online review? If you have, then this article
will interest you.
Recently I came across a few cases where people who left a review
following a purchase from Amazon Market Place, ended up being
bullied, harassed and trolled by what appeared to be an organised
network of Amazon vendors.
In one instant a man who left a review following his
dissatisfaction with the return policy of the vendor, received over
130 posts responding to his review, many of which were derogatory,
insulting and to be frank outrageous.
He was being ridiculed and embarrassed and even his home address
was placed on the discussion forum. The assault went on for a
number of days before Amazon agreed to remove some of the offending
comments. However, these were replaced by more cruel and vicious
attacks on the buyer.
Is this a new trend? I hope not.
I will keep an eye on this issue. If you have had a similar
experience after you left an online review, I would love to hear

Many targets of internet trolls tell a similar story. It begins when they unintentionally say something that acts as a trigger. They are then surrounded by an amorphous mob that rapidly closes in on them. Many of the victims will never forget the loud silence of the majority—all the members of the social media forum who ignored their distress.

Many former employees who turn to the internet to air their dissatisfaction about the practices of their former company do so because they feel bitterness and outrage, not necessarily about the economic decision that made them redundant, but rather because of the handing of the redundancy by the company and the evasive manner in which the unfortunate news was communicated to them.
