    According to the conventional wisdom of the internet, there’s one simple guideline for responding to trolls: don’t feed them. Ignore them, don’t react to them, don’t give them the attention they want. The axiom has become such a reflexive piece of advice and assumed knowledge that it can often be difficult to see the misperceptions and dismissiveness at its heart, the four hideous lies that perpetuate the cycle of misunderstanding, and the grim, cruel reality it has helped to enable in online culture.



    Don’t feed the trolls, and other hideous lies

    On the other hand, it is sometimes amusing to prod ignorant, quivering hysterical jelly with a sharp stick.

    That's the way I feel about it. It's fun to see just how far you can nudge them into their trolling, and whether or not you can piss them off.

    President Trump's superb skill in trolling the libs is one of his greatest attributes. Photo-shopping his head on to Stallone's body this week was a master stroke. Liberal heads were exploding world wide

    Better advice is to stay off the trolls menu.

    I'll say. $189 bucks a month for 200 x 100 Mb fiber internet access with three email accounts, a land line, and cable. And the price keeps going up.

    For me it’s £68 a month for TV cable. House phone and internet. Bargain or what?
