Trolls, Drama and Gossip

Being a part of a number of large Free Software projects over the last years has been a wonderful time in so many ways. But over those years I have also gotten to know another side of Free Software: trolls, drama and gossip. Let me take you down the rabbit hole and show you where it comes from, what you can do about it and why it's sometimes even useful.
