This has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that people sometimes say mean things about me on Twitter.

And in our comments section.

And in our emails.

And letters.

And cards they send sometimes, too.

But anyway, researchers at the University of Manitoba have a new study out that shows that people who troll online are often jerks in real life.

So there.
