1) A user "Zinc" on the forum SpaceBattles.com created tons of sockpuppets, all with nicknames vaguely related to zinc, all using trolling of various subtelty. This caused A WITCH HUNT ON ALL USERS WITH NAMES RELATED TO ZINC.
I feel the need to applause.

What epicly successful examples of Internet trolling do you know ?

That is pretty impressive. I believe it was for the book about Mike Pence's bunny, but if so Amazon deleted the troll comments- but anyway people not only gave it tons of 1 star reviews, but rated trolling 5 star reviews as the "most helpful"- things like "Haha, no the book's terrible. I just wanted to disappoint anybody looking for a good review".

the amazon reviews have some of the most amazing trolls ever. The best stuff is always there.

I do remember one that claimed the product was the unhatched egg of an alien parasite.

I am afraid to follow that link. Is that one of those guys that replies to email scammers and strings them along? Those can be pretty funny.
