According to the
someone sent a troll post to
the Class of 1994:

“At first the letter looked very official,” a ’94 alumnus
said, “but as you read [the letter], it devolves, using
nonprofessional syntax and wording and making bizarre
accusations. My first impression was just 'what the hell?’”

This false letter included accusations targeted
at specific members of the Class of 1994, assigning
blame for the mailing of the first letter and
accusing others of having homosexual affairs.

This is a classic trolling technique: write an reasonable-looking
post that degrades into something completely insane.
is a great example. So is
(Both are really gross, so don’t read them if you’re easily disgusted.)
