This article is interesting on several levels:
- Goodreads has trolls, who knew?
- 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?)
- The Internet makes people do surprising things (like visiting a troll’s house :-))
- 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.
