    Rule #1 - Don't feed the trolls. Yet, some people find it impossible to do that. Moreover, this invites people who just like to argue, it doesn't matter how stupid or useless the topic is. But to each, their own, I guess.

    It has to cover "outright falsehoods," IMO, because what I think is an outright lie, you might believe is God's Own Truth. And that's what forums are all about, in fact. Who gets to vet what is and isn't a falsehood? Fake news? Slanted stories? No, free speech has to be just that: FREE speech. No matter what.

    Then we can pick and choose what we like. I'm an advocate for people selecting to read those on their side and discarding the rest.

    That's pretty much the definition of trolling.
