NoTrolls2Why do you engage others on the internet by your posts and comments?

I would imagine you want to post something you love, like, enjoy, believe is important and would like to share with others because, you care. I would also think, you want comments for the same reasons.

Sure, there can be other reasons, but I will leave those to you. There are others that seek to argue and put-down almost anything posted. They are called in Internet slang as, trolls.

A troll is, a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a Twitter, Facebook, some newsgroup, forum, Chat room or blog (weblog). It is a deliberate act or having practiced this so long it has become almost an unconscious act with intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, often for their own amusement The solutions are several.

  1. Ignore them (they can’t stand it)
  2. Refer to them as an it or in third person
  3. Ask them in a private message to stop
  4. Ask them on the public or private group page to stop
  5. Report them to a moderator or the proper abuse forum of the page
  6. Un-friend the person
  7. Block the person
