I know it's kind of a silly question but I know that I acknowledge them in a positive way, start a discussion out of it or ignore their insult entirely until they wear themselves out.

Part of me get a pleasure out of watching them try to make me mad and realizing that they're just words on a computer screen.

But yeah, when you get trolled, how do you handle it, do you go toe to toe, ignore them, or fight back with random non sequiturs, I knew one guy that started being polite using his native tongue and someone got mad at him and he was like "all I said was thank you for the advice" but he said it in Russian (forgot how to say the phrase).

Your methods for trolls, how do?

So far I haven't had someone just be flat out rude to me or anything. I think that if someone was like that to me I would probably just either ignore it or kill them with kindness.

Reverse troll them. I don't care about trolls because it's honestly just fun to troll back and let the hunter be the hunted.

Don't even know what one is.

I usually just dont bother with them, it's pretty pointless.

I don't really see anything wrong with them or getting trolled, just a trickster behind a keyboard who seeks a conversation or just wants to play around. Sometimes it's fun to play around or sometimes I'm not up for it so I don't participate. There is value in a troll, or rather something to be seen, something to be learned about the human condition.

It depends on what kind of mood I'm in. I've found that a lot of people acting like trolls actually aren't, but just aren't very bright, or misunderstood something you said; if you keep calm, and stay on topic, carefully reasoning things through, you can often make a decent conversation.
On the other hand, if I'm in a particularly bad mood, or I see no hope for turning things in a better direction, I am more likely to just go 'toe-to-toe' as you put it. Or troll them back.
In any case, I usually fare pretty well in dealing with trolls, but maybe I just get lucky.

I simply write their name in my Death Note, they stop trolling 40 seconds later. Another good way of addressing trolls is to just ignore them, pretend they don't even exist.

i haven't deliberately trolled anyone in years because i grew out of that smartass phase.

You don't. If you feed them, they'll get fat.
