Something Awful and their ilk are pretty sad and laughable.
This is coming from someone who had to endure those douchebags trying to make fun of a community's honoring my longtime partner who died suddenly from diabetic coma in 2007. They stopped pretty fast when some people who were in both communities spoke up -- surprisingly courageous -- and made it clear it wasn't cool to troll a grieving family...which included his parents and young brother.
As has been mentioned by others, we can either be afraid of trolls and thereby allow them to win everything ever, or we can go on living our lives regardless of them and have a better time of it.
Dealing with trolls always sucks, but we can't actually live life if we're constantly worrying if someone might decide to be an asshole and troll us over nothing important.
Well done to all those who have posted and continue to post. Keep it up!
