To be completely fair, this doesn't happen to people who don't make themselves a huge target by broadcasting to everyone on Twitter that they are worthy of the harassing and are going to keep reeeeeing tard cum about it the more they are put under fire. I'm not saying strong women, transpeople or minorities should learn to keep quiet either (which is Googley culture's modus operandi) - just that if you work professionally, chances of you being targeted by trolls lower down to pretty close to 0%.
Making a big deal out of harassment is only to be counterproductive and raise the chances to 100% of people continuing to harass you - but you actually know that and thrive on it, don't you?
In the end, if you managed to become a target for trolls, you're only hurting your own ability to do your job, the same way a carpenter who cuts off his finger is going to have a hard time continuing to work at the same level as before. Ultimately, it just means you're incompetent at your job.
The best (IMO) explanation is that their zeal and fervor is, psychologically, the exact same as the desire for martyrdom by early Christians during the Roman Empire.
