I have a troll, an anonymous person ever looking for a chance to publicly magnify whatever errors I’ve made. Worse, s/he has distorted my work and even manufactured lies, serious lies about me.

Of course, having a troll isn't fun but it has yielded unexpected benefits. I describe them in my PsychologyToday.com article today. It has implications for anyone who is criticized or bullied.
