How we go by responding to a troll

_________________________-

1. Spot a troll.

2. Reply to the troll. *cringe* Reply to the troll. *facepalm* Reply to the troll. *ugggh* Reply to the troll. *meow* Reply to the troll. *ghsidfhsia*

2a) 15 pages later . . . Reply to troll. Reply to troll. Reply to troll. Reply to troll.

3. Throughout this ordeal, assert that you are sick of this troll, that you hate his guts, that they are the bottom of the barrel, or better yet, that they can't even scrape the bottom of the barrel, that they are wasting your time, etc. etc. etc. Continue to reply to the troll, of course. Ignore the various posters that request that you simply ignore the troll and not add more flame to the fire by giving their thread the attention that they oh so crave.

4. Rinse, lather, repeat.

Oh I know trolls should simply be ignored, but most people probably won't admit that they get pleasure out of debating with them, as futile as it may be. I can't deny that I thoroughly enjoy a thrilling discussion with the lovely Julesb. :)

To the OP: I agree with you.


But you have to admit, it's quite fun to respond to trolls like myself. :)

Drakulie, you're a troll killer. You are as antithetical to trolls as Vladimir Guerrero is to the Texas Rangers. A 40 game hit streak against one team? WTF?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!

What about him? :)

His avator is so spunky, it makes me want to purchase the third season of House and binge on my favorite doctor (ooooh, that doesn't sound right, does it?)

That would be nice. We could talk about why he dishes on Nadal so much, and makes him out to be the biggest wuss on tour.

No, he stopped posting to take a break from the threads (which sounds like a good idea), and then signed up under a new username for a "fresh start." I won't tell you who he is so he can keep his freshness. ;)

It's not hypocritical to complain about the complainers. Nope, it's not.

not really, no. one thread among thousands, this isn't really incessant complaining. alright, i'm venting. but still, i just find it self-refuting that some posters are b'yatchin' about how trollish threads have taken over this sub-forum, yet continue to add fuel to the fire by responding to them. don't get me wrong, sometimes i'll indulge myself and argue with a problem child, but i like to think that i have the restraint to stop after a few rounds.

i'm a nole/fed fan and i like nadal, so i'm not just singling out any group of fans, just FTR.
