Unmasking Reddit’s Violentacrez, The Biggest Troll on the Web
[byline] Adrian Chen

Last Wednesday afternoon I called Michael Brutsch. He was at the office of the Texas financial services company where he works as a programmer and he was having a bad day. I had just told him, on Gchat, that I had uncovered his identity as the notorious internet troll Violentacrez (pronounced Violent-Acres).

"It's amazing how much you can sweat in a 60 degree office," he said with a nervous laugh...

Meh, we're the only ones that care about Amy. Literally. That's why he/she/it is so committed to its sad mission.
