A new form of mental illness has developed that is contagious.
There is a word for what online troll/bullies do, schadenfreude, which means taking pleasure from the misfortune of others. With trolls this is a self-perpetuating cycle where one troll creates misfortune and the others feed on it, they in turn create more misfortune and others feed off that. It really is a state of mental illness that feed off and reinforces the same condition in others. Only with social media and the internet does such a contagious form of mental illness proliferate.
