I'm so happy for Ed and all the success he has but with this new album he got even more famous and with that comes hate from others.When I go to twitter and search through his tag there's a lot of hate and I'm constantly blocking people.I'm just tired of it.He's such a good hearted person. I dont listen to e.g. to Ariana Grande or Lady Gaga but I'm not hating them just because I'm bored.I'm like whatever about them. Not my fandom so I dont care.What's the point of hating just for the sake of it?
Posting hate online just for the sake of it is a form of trolling, and many trolls have certain mental and emotional commonalities that predispose them to that type of behavior. Tons of studies have been done about why trolls exist and what they get out of it, but it seems like the most popular answers are that they want attention and they like the thrill of provoking an emotional response from someone who is passionate about whatever subject they’re trolling – which by design isn’t something they themselves actually feel passionately about. It’s an act to get a response. Whoever attacks Ed on Twitter isn’t someone who actually cares much one way or the other about him; they’re doing it because they know you care. One troll described it this way:
Basically, yeah, it sucks that some people lash out because their lives have no meaning. The best thing you can do is ignore it and make sure the things you post yourself are positive. And I would add that blocking is a form of attention, which trolls crave, so a better solution would be simply to mute them. They don’t know they’ve been muted, so they end up just screaming into the void, and you still don’t have to see it. :)
