The number of networks exceeded 7,500 and the number of connected computers passed 1,000,000 by 1992.
Businesses all around the world were establishing websites online.
The Internet began changing from a military, technology and educational realm to a world where anyone with a modem and computer could log on.
Not long after 1992 when companies began pushing for more global network participation, the term, "Internet Troll" was coined. It was such a bizarre addition to our typically intellectual space, that it was noticed but mostly ignored. Running across a, "troll" was few and far between as the majority of internet community continued to be computer students, businesses or military for many more years. And rarely did the educated technologically advanced internet users fall for troll behavior. In mass, the few trolls that existed online were basically brushed off.
But as more and more people from around the world logged on, the intellectual (engineering and education) percentage of use dropped. The new internet community demanded a focus on entertainment. Many people discovered the anonymity of account profiles could hide their identity from others. And with that came corrupt behavior.
