Trolling through Disqus

So I haven’t gone through TITP’s Disqus comments in a long time. I’m busy, and it’s mostly just a troll cesspool. But tonight I decided to finally clean out the Pending, and since I had so many to go through at once, decided to make this tally of the kinds of troll comments we get at TITP. It’s amazing how few categories they fit into, generally. 

Note that the occasional comment covered more than one category below, but most comments didn’t. I have the theme of the comment on the left, and the tally number on the right. Sorted by most common comment to least. There were also some that were literally just “lol ur fat” that didn’t fall into any category, so they’re not included. (ArteToLife)
