I recently shared an illustration of the prototypical blog troll. If you give a guy an audience and perceived anonymity, the end result can be super dickish.

Police didn't identify the accused, but local Pittsburgh news outlets are reporting that the post allegedly came from a 17-year-old residing in central Pennsylvania.
Sidney Crosby is 21, so there goes that theory.
