An inhabitant of text-based open platforms such as Reddit, 4Chan or the Youtube comment section.

Often characterized by their tendency to give unwanted attention, they will attempt to assert dominance by insulting people for innocuous actions, such as playing a popular video game, watching anime, or declaring your allegiance to an online fandom.

In fact, knowledge of internet fandoms causes immense physical pain to the troglodyte, as they often voice their displeasure through increased aggression, autistic screeching, and overuse of the word "cringe."

When they feel safe, they will usually state their opinions as if they were actual facts that everyone agrees with. Citing unreliable sources and relying on an infinitesimal sample size.

Upon confrontation, however, they will state that it was "only an opinion" in an attempt to preserve their status and assert their dominance.

The troglodyte's strength lies in its numbers. If there are enough troglodytes in a group (often called a "tumor"), they can create an echo chamber effect for anyone that has an opposing opinion, resulting in assimilation into their ranks. This is the source of the troglodyte's confidence, as it leads many to believe they have the power to shape reality.

There are many ways to deal with troglodytes, the most reliable being disengagement. You may also attempt discourse with a troglodyte, but their reliance on insults and circular logic makes them difficult to best in a verbal altercation.
