Comedians using their fans for co-ordinated, safety-in-numbers bullying (Cook’d and Bomb’d Comedy Chat).

It’s a particularly interesting antidote to the current moral panic occuring in Australia over trolling, all the more remarkable given it is from a country where people can be prosecuted for their tweets.
