A Sociopath (Socialised Psychopath) uses the internet to pursue their psychologically dangerous behaviour, often across multiple internet venues.

Many instances of Internet Bullying and Harassment are caused by a Netopath - and where there is Group Bullying or Mobbing there is invariably a Netopath at the centre using others as lieutenants to be the Public Face of the Netopath and to allow The Netopath to act as a puppet master and manipulate others so that the Netopath has the least obvious profile within The Group.
A Netopath may be anonymous or very public in who they are - and a Public Netopath is the most dangerous.
Once a Netopath is identified the will often seek revenge for their public unmasking - and they will bear grudges indefinitely and may remain dangerous and seeking revenge for many years.
