I'm noticing a trend recently of accounts created seemingly for the sole purpose of insulting a specific post / comment, and it's beginning to seriously irritate me. Does anyone know why this seems to be on the rise, and if there's anything that can be done to stop it?

(if you're not actually such an account, then sorry for falsely accusing you, but my irritation at the trend in general still stands).
