New York Times on the character of “Internet trolls” or better: those behind cyber-crimes:

The next morning, Mitchell’s school assembled in the gym to begin mourning. His classmates created a virtual memorial on MySpace and garlanded it with remembrances. One wrote that Mitchell was “an hero to take that shot, to leave us all behind. God do we wish we could take it back. . . . ” Someone e-mailed a clipping of Mitchell’s newspaper obituary to MyDeathSpace.com, a Web site that links to the MySpace pages of the dead.

Only through cooperation and celebration of our diversity can we live
and experience the Oneness that we are. Some coaches, but not all, allow belly button rings to
be taped over.
