Anyone can become a troll.

That’s the provocative title of a new paper looking into the causes of trolling behavior online.

Justin Cheng is a Ph.D. student at Stanford and the paper’s lead author. He studies antisocial behavior in online communities.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
