Arrow Media can't distinguish between trolling and bullying

http://www.cnn.com/2013/07/11/world/...html?hpt=hp_c4


Makes me so mad they think abusive, mean-spirited bullying that leads to suicides can be called trolling. Wow. IDIOTS. Don't report on something you don't understand.

For me,

Trolling: Inciting anger/frustration/annoyance in target
Bullying: Inciting fear and possible physical/mental pain in target

Starting an argument against someone's beliefs just for the sake of getting riled up is trolling.

Threatening to hurt or actually hurting someone over their beliefs is bullying.

Yeah, the difference between trolling and bullying is like the difference between ding dong ditch and throwing a brick through the window
