Inside eBay’s Cockroach Cult: The Ghastly Story of a Stalking Scandal (New York Times)

It stands as a warning about how easily tech companies can feel aggrieved, and the mayhem that can ensue when they do. And it vividly shows how the internet makes people crazy, often without them ever realizing it.”
