There are a few internet trolls in our area that seem to feel the need to comment on any and all social media posts. The posts I am referring to are usually positive ones, like someone helping a neighbor or something of that nature. Then these idiots have to chime in with something political or negative. Their sole purpose is to educate us on how dumb we are and how uber intelligent they are.. My lord - get a hobby. I can only imagine what conversation is like around their dinner tables.
