(Editor’s Note: This is one of the most impactful examples of why we are implementing a user credibility system that holds people accountable for what they say online. Hiding behind an anonymous troll mask is not acceptable and can easily be mitigated by incentivizing users to be accountable. No mother should have to experience this because of “platform anonymity”.)
