Exciting new ICO

This long-time Internet player is respected and feared in equal measure. Now finally their new coin offering goes live. Some say we're in a bubble - but I say: not so! When a renowned new economy institution shifts gears so dramatically, all signs point towards a new paradigm.

The trolling has simply moved to a higher level of abstraction. Ten years ago Goatsey was about the picture. Now it's a humorous reference to a well known ancestral memory.

After all, our brains are getting huge from all of these intertubes.

New trolling is different from old trolling.

Used to be you got invited to the lemon party and saw some  guy's anus.

Now if you go looking for an anus photo and what you thought was a reliable place to find anus photos, you instead get tricked into reading a stock prospectus, then some guy gives you 1000 cryptocurrency coins for free.

... But you can use those cryptocurrency coins to buy your own anus photos.

The new era of trolling offers a lot of user choice.

It feels very unsafe though not knowing if you are going to reliably get a solid anus photo or be roped into accepting some futuristic cyber currency.

I think maybe it would be better to just stay on Facebook where things are curated and I am not exposed to scary thoughts or uncertainty.

"The trolling has simply moved to a higher level of abstraction." - quite so. I felt like I'd just been had in a game of poker when my colleague sent me the link. He watched me as if he was expecting me to not expect an eyeful of prolapse - and then I clicked, and BOOM, he burst out laughing at my look of utter bemusement as I got not the distended bumhole I'd assumed, but ANOTHER FUCKING ICO. I'd expected to win - but I got played. This game was cleverer than I thought. Some next level shit.
