ATTENTION ALL YE TROLLS (and you know who you are)!!

You CAN be found out and exposed!!

My city, Arlington, TX, has the biggest troll on the web.

DALLAS -

An Internet storm of controversy has erupted following the public outing of a notorious and anonymous online figure – a North Texas man who was fired from his IT job shortly after his real identity was revealed.

The drama is being played out largely on Gawker and Reddit, two popular websites that are each part news and part social media.

Last week Gawker published a lengthy article titled "Unmasking Reddit's Viole... the Web."

Violentacrez won his notoriety on Reddit as the anonymous guy behind a series of forums called sub-reddits with titles like Jailbait, Creepshots, BeatingWomen and others too offensive to name, including some racist and anti-semitic.

He's known for his skills at stirring the pot and being an Internet troll. His work is offensive, but not illegal.

It turns out he's Michael Brutsch of Arlington, a 49-year-old husband and father who worked for a financial services company.

Brutsch's front door currently warns journalists off with a sign that says, "No comment." But, he's posting openly on Reddit now as MBrutsch.

"I got fired Saturday morning by phone," he wrote.

He complained of "dozens of death threats." He reported that his wife is disabled and can't work and that he will quickly be out of money and health insurance. He also asked supporters to send money to a PayPal account.

Neighbors are familiar with Reddit, but surprised that the notorious Violentacrez is the man next door.

"They're just pushing people's buttons, just pissing people off. That's all they do," Kyle Kercher said of Internet trolls in general.

"I would never imagine that he's pushing the limits like that," added Daniel Nguyen.

And they're amazed by the furor over Brutsch's outing.

"How he's national now. And that it's gone viral now, that's what's interesting. That's kind of crazy," they said.

Attorney John Browning, author of "The Lawyer's Guide to Social Networks" said he doesn't think people should expect an absolute right to remain anonymous online.

"It's curious. Here he and his proponents have pointed to the sanctity of the First Amendment. And that's great but that very same First Amendment is what protects that journalist's right to talk about what he's doing and draw public attention to it. We live in a social laboratory and fresh air is a great disinfectant," he said.

A lot of journalists have been trying to reach Brutsch without much success. He posted on Reddit that he plans to do just one network television interview Thursday night to make his case.

For the record I feel NO pity for this guy. He made his bed and now he gets to sleep in it...

Oh, his wife's disabled??

Was he worried about her when he was posting pics of underage girls in a special forum called "Jailbait"

This is NOT about free speech.

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Agree. He was nasty because he could. He used agression just to be nasty, he had no intention of changing the world for the better at all.

99% of my posts are ironic. Maybe this post sides with the other 1%.

Also, apparently someone has outed the guy that hounded the girl in Canada who ultimately committed suicide.

What a loser.

I really dont think this guys done or is doing anything wrong. Its nasty for sure but it really shouldnt affect anyone; If that sort of thing ever affects me it just makes me realize I'm being a complete idiot, that I shouldnt be taking the guy seriously and I need to either widen my comfort zone or learn to live with it because causing an uproar over it is just dumb and selfish.

But that's just the thing. If his intent wasn't to affect anyone, then why did he constantly harass the person? That don't fly with me, sorry.

I think you've gotten the two internet stories mixed up. The troll who has been outed is the one who posted all the disgusting random pictures to a popular website, he didn't harass anyone. The stalker/blackmailer who has been outed for hounding the Canadian girl who killed herself is totally different.

On the troll, he's absolutely done something wrong. By gathering all those pictures and posting them on a very popular site, he was creating an easy way for an enormous audience to see pictures they likely wouldn't have seen. If you had a young daughter, would you want pictures of her like that posted somewhere for a massive group of people to see? The reason so many people get arrested for just possessing (as opposed to making) child porn is because they create a demand. If you remove them from society and put fear into others who might be thinking about doing the same thing, you're getting rid of the demand. Without the demand, there won't be disgusting pictures and videos taken of children. It's the same reason why johns are arrested. Without johns, there would be no prostitution.

As for the stalker of the Canadian girl, I just hope they've named the right guy. There are some reports that the information provided by the group outing the guy is false, and that the real predator is a guy who lives in NYC. That's why vigilante groups are such a concern, they can ruin the wrong guy's life when they make mistakes.
