There are creeps everywhere, but it seems to be true that having a keyboard between them and the person their harassing brings even more of them out of the woodwork.

It takes more courage to be a creep on the street – not that many don’t seem to have it in spades – than to say something so, so wrong online.

Luckily, it’s also easier to craft the perfect comeback when you have a bit of time – and a keyboard of your own at your disposal.

And these 14 people put both to the greatest possible use.
