Catfishing For Beginners

This article is interesting on several levels:

  1. Goodreads has trolls, who knew?
  2. It helps one understand how we could have gotten to g.a.m.e.r.g.a.t.e (if the placid pools of literary sites are like this, how could we not?)
  3. The Internet makes people do surprising things (like visiting a troll’s house :-))
  4. It was great to be reminded of one of my favorite computer memes, Eliza (via a roundabout route)

Also, since the article is authored by an actual, um, author, it’s well written and easy to read.
