There is nothing worse than a troll. I’m not talking about the story books trolls that lurk under bridges and eat babies. I’m talking about those that surf from site to site leaving comments chock full of hate and negativity. If you’ve spent any time online then you know what I’m talking about and it can leave, to say the least, a bitter taste in your mouth.

As a site owner and operator there is nothing more infuriating (aside from my hosting company dropping the ball) than reading a comment that attempts to incite hate and fuel anger. That’s why it’s so damn refreshing to get word of V-Energy’s campaign, called V-Hab, to put an end to trolling losers.

So what is V-Hab? It’s an online clinic – a rehab center (word play, heyo) if you will, targeted at curing those of their trolling ways. Moreover, V-Energy has created a browser extension which magically converts negative comments, using some natural language processing, into positive ones. Ain’t nothing wrong with that.
