    What's the correct response to forum trolls or idiotic or annoying statements?

    I generally practice ignoring them.

    "Don't feed the trolls".

    https://www.urbandictionary.com/defi...20the%20trolls

    "Trolling behaviours typically include deliberately posting inflammatory comments and argumentative messages in an attempt to provoke, disrupt and upset others. “Trolls” may pretend to be part of the group, but their real intent is to create conflict for their own amusement. Shockingly, more than a quarter of Americans have admitted to engaging in trolling behaviour at some point."

    "Most concerning, however, is that harassing behaviours online (such as cyberbullying and trolling) are shown to have psychological outcomes similar to those of harassment offline. These outcomes can include depression, social anxiety and low self-esteem."

    http://theconversation.com/dont-feed...evidence-63657

    I wonder how many trolls work for & are paid by bookies. Many good posters have left because of trolls.

    You can't reason with ignorance, so don't bother trying

    I may have the largest ignore list on this forum

    When arguing with an idiot just make sure he’s not doing the same thing.

    your comment is one of the most pragmatic and intelligent statements posted on this forum. so many intelligent people on this forum unravel when confronted by someone else who is only interested in stirring the pot with their irrational statements. i will never understand why people continue to engage the village idiots here when that is exactly what they are looking for. as willie stated that is why God invented the ignore button.

    Most of the overly sensitive people here should be forced to use the ignore feature or themselves be banned for complaining too much.

    I treat trolls and angry people the same way. Laugh. I canít remember the last time I had a thread with total civility and there is just no reasoning with some people

    My ignore list grows by 1 every time I check in with this place. Once there are more people I ignore than I care to read, I'm done, getting close.
