Trolling is Not a New Phenomenon

I was sent this by an irate address-free (possibly elderly, looking at the handwriting) person in around 2000 when I was beginning my PhD.
If I'd been able to respond, I could have pointed out that I was actually working and paying taxes; possibly, I was contributing to their own NHS treatments or some such.
If they'd have put a forwarding address, I could even have sent them a book, perhaps!

Possibly speechless, unforchly not penless. Definitley witless. And presumably PHd-less (as many of us are).

PS I thought you meant trolling, as in "trolling up and down Princess Street".
