This week’s episode of Inside Amy Schumer had an excellent sketch about the complicity of platform creators in the activity of trolls.  In many ways, the reluctance of platform devs to create robust tools to push back against abusers and harassers constitutes empowers them to feel as though their behavior is okay.  When harassers feel safer using a platform then their victims do, there is a systemic problem that needs resolving.

Check out the sketch using the link below and let me know what you think in the comments!
