It didn't start with the Internet. In its most primitive and ancient form, it began with graffiti ("Billy is an asshole", "Tina is a whore", etc.), but it really got started with radio-show callers.
Remember the Howard Stern Show? People literally waited on hold for hours just so they could spew bile at anyone who was on the show, regardless who they were. Essentially, it's a type of person who is so deeply resentful of anyone who is receiving any kind of attention that, because of their own self-pity, insecurity and misanthropy, they will, provided they can remain anonymous, of course, attempt to assuage their own self-hatred by shitting on what they perceive as someone they feel doesn't deserve the attention (i.e. anyone but themselves) and attempt to divert some of that attention their own way in the only fashion of which they're capable.
The Internet, with its countless platforms allowing user commentary, has only allowed this to grow like bacteria in a petri dish full of dogshit and rotting meat.
