520    In 2013, journalist Ginger Gorman was trolled online. She 
       received scores of hateful tweets, including a death 
       threat. A picture of Ginger heavily pregnant alongside her
       husband and two-and-half year old daughter appeared on a 
       fascist website. Understandably she was terrified, but 
       once the attack subsided, she found herself curious. Who 
       were these trolls? How and why did they coordinate such an
       attack? And how does someone fight back against a troll? 
       Over the next five years Gorman spoke to psychologists, 
       trolling victims, law enforcement, academics and, most 
       importantly, the trolls themselves, embedding herself into
       their online communities and their psyches in ways she had
       never anticipated. What she discovered was both profoundly
       shocking and fascinating. Syndicates of highly organised 
       predator trolls across the globe systematically set out to
       disrupt and disturb. Some want to highlight the media's 
       alleged left-wing bias, some want to bring down capitalism,
       and some just want to have fun, even if it means 
       destroying someone's life.
