So is there a standard response to trolls? Do you have fun with them, or do you ignore them? I find that, depending on their level of offensiveness, a response now and then is kind of entertaining...but perhaps this is too encouraging, and we should use the "cold shoulder" instead.? Are there any rules for this? What do you think?

The general rule I've picked up in my time on internet forums is DON'T FEED THEM. It only makes them grow. And I personally agree with it. I've already reported the ones that are bothering us tonight... but I didn't respond to them.

What's that old folk remedy? Feed a fever, starve a TROLL?

If you are refering to the big E, I was shocked by his last post. The mods deleted it soon.

I can not believe some people. His words were sick and un-called for.

I think in the begining some people do not realize that they are trolls.

He gave a new meaning to the word troll to me.

And he used christiananity, as his points. Very sad.

I am still in shock of this person. He said that we all needed to be checked in by his docs and we help him write his book. So many other things he said. I know a lot did not get to read it, but it was so bad.

So that troll, is worse than pond scum to me. Even the scum that eats the
