The trolls are out, and they’re coming to town.
They’ll take to social media to harass, bully, and otherwise abuse their way to power.
And, like all bullies, they’ll come back.
A new study by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has shown how they’re using the internet to infiltrate creative, public forums.
The findings are the first comprehensive look at how digital trolls use the internet and how they work to disrupt, discredit, and silence the voices of those who are speaking out against them.
In the study, we surveyed 100 people from creative agencies around the world about how they were affected by online trolls and how to combat them.
Our findings show that trolls have become an integral part of the online culture, a problem that the EFF is calling a “threat to democracy.”
EFF is partnering with the International Society of Journalists, which has compiled a report titled How to Stop the Trolls.
The study, published today, shows how trolls are using the web to create the impression that there is no place for free speech in the digital age.
This is a real problem, the report says.
It’s also an alarming one, because it could lead to an even more insidious effect: a chilling effect on free expression that can undermine democratic discourse and the ability of the public to hold powerful institutions accountable.
The report found that people who have been the target of online harassment have experienced physical violence, death threats, and threats to kill their families.
For some people, their jobs have been threatened.
A recent study from University of Cambridge found that 40 percent of people in England reported having been the victim of a crime on social media.
The most common way in which trolls attack and harass people online is by sending abusive, threatening, or insulting messages that target them personally.
The EFF study found that the frequency of these attacks and harassment increased in the months after Trump won the US election.
The number of attacks and harassments increased by 7.5 percent, to more than 20,000 incidents per day in February, compared to just over 6,000 in January, according to the study.
In April, the EFF found that an increasing number of trolls are targeting and threatening journalists and activists, often with racist, homophobic, and transphobic language.
The group says these attacks have “increased to levels that would threaten the safety and security of the American people.”
The group’s report, called “Who Is Online?
The Cyber-Bullying of Journalists,” found that nearly two-thirds of all the people surveyed reported experiencing harassment from online trolls.
They said this included threatening, bullying, and threatening a job with physical violence or death.
A third of the respondents who reported being the target or target of an online attack reported that they were able to take back control of the situation.
EFF also found that many of these trolls were using their platforms to attack political candidates, particularly those who have the most support online.
Many trolls used a platform like Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites to target Democratic candidates who were perceived as more liberal or progressive, according the report.
EFF notes that “while some political trolls are active in social media platforms, many others are not.
Their tactics are mostly online, where they post or target messages to target political opponents, and not to harass individuals, groups, or institutions.
The majority of trolls, especially the most extreme trolls, use social media as a platform to amplify their messages, rather than to confront the public directly.”
EFF points to the rise of the troll army, the “fake news” phenomenon, and the rise in the use of fake accounts as examples of how trolls target and threaten.
“This is a problem for democracy and for the internet itself,” said EFF Staff Attorney Ryan Lenz.
“There’s no better way to stop the trolls than by blocking them out of the system, and we’re calling on the tech industry to do the same.”
The EFF is asking the tech companies and other technology companies to stop supporting platforms that allow users to report trolls and report online harassment, and to take the following actions to combat trolls: Stop allowing trolls to use their platforms for harassment, harassment, intimidation, or stalking.
