Peeps, we’ve said it before and we’re saying it again.
When a truly nasty troll hits the blog, DO NOT RESPOND TO IT!!! It craves attention, and when you GIVE it attention it WILL NOT GO AWAY!! Trolls of this sort (such as the troll we’re dealing with today) are only trying to get a rise out of people, and if someone–ANYone–responds to it even obliquely, it thinks it has won and will continue its assault.
If you pretend it is not there and completely ignore it, it will go away and find another place where it can get responses. The troll on the blog today would have been gone within an hour if people had just ignored its existence and pretended it wasn’t there.
Now don’t get me wrong–I enjoy poking entertaining trolls as much as the next person. But I think we all know that this isn’t an entertaining troll. So please. Do not feed the trolls…the consequences are much, much worse that way.
