Note: It's come to my attention that some of the schadenfreude-afflicted, both here on LiveJournal and elsewhere, are angry at the idea that schadenfreude could be considered to be a mental defect of its own, and that their attitude about "fun" could be characterized in such a fashion.
All I can say is that if an individual finds it "fun" to verbally pummel another human being until tears come forth, and/or to the point of causing suicides (as happened in Vermont in 2003, Missouri in 2006, Florida in both 2008 and 2009, and Massachusetts in 2010, and several more each year in other states since), then there is in fact something wrong with that individual's personality and corrective action is needed, whether it be psychiatric, judicial, or a combination of the two.
