Abstract

This study suggests that governments use Internet trolling as the third way of controlling online public discourse. On the contrary to previous studies that explored two passive measures of controls, censorship and surveillance, the study emphasizes the active measure trolling as a new way of government intervention. This study also differs from previous studies on trolling, which have seen trolling as an individual misbehavior based on psychological amusement. This paper argues that trolling also needs to be understood as organizational concerted actions, manufacturing and even creating public online discourse. In order to address these, the study used the very first kind of case evidence around the world: trolling operation by secret spy Intelligence Agency of S. Korea that confirmed by court ruling.
