If you look at post comments here on Gear Diary you’ll see some that correct mistakes we made and others that outright disagree with us. You’ll see perspectives that differ, Judie teased for “just happening to carry a micro-sim adapter” with her at all times and, sometimes, a suggestion about something we missed. All of that is fair game and, in fact, we welcome it. What you will not see however, are rude, offensive, gratuitously nasty comments. The reason for that is simple, such comments immediately get yanked. You see, we have a zero tolerance for trolls on Gear Diary.

Who are the internet trolls, the people who use anonymity to hide their vile, repulsive, self-hating bigotry? Who are these people that even a mother would find difficult to love? The BBC tracked one down and… he is an idiot. See for yourself…

About the Author

Dan Cohen
Having a father who was heavily involved in early laser and fiber-optical research, Dan grew up surrounded by technology and gadgets. Dan’s father brought home one of the very first video games when he was young and Dan remembers seeing a “pre-release” touchtone phone. (When he asked his father what the “#” and “*” buttons were his dad said, “Some day, far in the future, we’ll have some use for them.”) Technology seemed to be in Dan’s blood but at some point he took a different path and ended up in the clergy. His passion for technology and gadgets never left him. Dan is married to Raina Goldberg who is also an avid user of Apple products. They live in New Jersey with their golden doodle Nava.
