I'm pretty snarky online with people who give me crap, and I also have no problems walking away from forum arguments after a couple replies- whereas many other will fill up page after page of circular arguments that get more and more heated over time. So being targetted for trolling is something that doesn't happen to me very often. I also don't get mad at trollish things being said that don't directly concern me- I just try to ignore it.

If the problem is egregiously bad enough though, I also have no qualms with flagging mods. I've spent my entire adult life moderating online communities, so I have a pretty good idea of what types of behavioral reports do or don't work for getting taken care of.

Either ignore them, or troll back

Depends on my mood. Either a smart ass reply from me or all they hear is the wind: AKA NOTHING. Or if I can block them, even better! Because honestly, ignoring them doesn't always work, because they're going to keep trolling other people. But it has to be something smart and burn-y, not like "shut up" because obviously they won't. That's food to them.

Depends on my mood. Sometimes I ignore them (honestly not feeding a troll is the best recourse), other times I use facts and perspective to battle said troll... in the end, I bid them adieu and wish them well in their miserable existence.

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.


You are such a piece of

I usually ignore, but if someone chooses to give me crap, I will sometimes give them crap! Karma, you know! It's a bitch! Not lying, but this is just for real...
