Hi, I am new to this list......I joined to learn more about methods 
for researching the internet and the topics researched at 
present.  Today is my first day of subscription and I have already 
learnt quite a bit.  I am interested in graffiti on the internet and 
did not know what trolling was.  Having just read the very 
interesting Wikipedia definition, I agree with Jimmy that this should 
be included.  Does anyone else have some insight into graffiti on the 
internet...articles, places to look, etc?
