Let me quote the conclusions:
   "it might be said that online trolls are prototypical everyday 

And there is a non-zero amount of sadists (probably ill-defined 
but research shown it's a psychological trait). Some of them will 
engage in trolling behaviour.

I hope the reader now see it's hopeless to have no moderation and 
hope for the best, since goodwill alone doesn't prevent some 
people from enjoying distress in others.

Good communities are built on the Internet with exclusion 
(moderation, internet point, banning, etc...)

As evidenced by Reddit, HN, StackOverflow, having all 
of that and maintaining a good level of civility. Not banning 
people is the surest way to have an unwelcoming community.
