A Farewell to Trolls

Heng Tang

My thesis is a word game where players type in friendly words or sentences to win and abusive words to lose. It encourages people to have genial attitudes when interacting with people on the Internet. This means less trolling, cyberbullying and a better online community.


Let’s face it! Internet trolls are ubiquitous nowadays. Just browse through the comment section of YouTube videos, you can find a dictionary of swear words. To fight against the poison of the Internet community the games encourage people to use nice and friendly words to interact with others online.
