READ ME: How To Stop Caring About Trolls
« on: November 07, 2011, 12:22:59 pm »
Wonderful article from Lifehacker here:

Added bonus: it includes the origin of SIWOTI!

It's incredibly tempting, but try to ignore them the best you can. Don't respond to them, not even to call them out as a troll, and they'll go away. Even a simple comment like "please stop" or "go away, troll" can bring attention to their comments.
Just because the internet has a lot of psychos doesn't mean it isn't full of awesome people, and time spent arguing with trolls is time that could have been spent having meaningful discussions with others.
It takes a bit of practice and conditioning, but the main goal is to just stop giving a crap about what other people think—especially those that have nothing useful to offer.
