I’m not talking about fairy tale monsters who guard bridges.
Trolls is a term applied to people on the internet who intentionally make inflammatory remarks to spark anger.
Some do it for laughs. Others do it because they are miserable and like making others angry.
Thus, while many fall into the trap of arguing with a troll. Many understand the warning.
DON’T FEED THE TROLLS!
Which means. If you don’t respond, they won’t continue to harass.
Trolls aren’t just for the internet. Life is filled with trolls. People whose solitary mission is to make others miserable intentionally.
Those of us who encounter trolls want to correct them. To tell them, stop being like this, but trolls don’t care.
Anyone who enjoys spreading misery does so intentionally and you will only end up getting frustrated and empowering the troll.
The best way to deal with a troll is to ignore them. They do things to upset you and anger you, but that’s the limit of their reach.
(Now, if they start breaking the law, CALL THE LAW!)
If you don’t feed the trolls, they will die or move onto a new source of food, but trying to correct a troll to show them the error of their ways will only cause you to be frustrated and there’s enough of that going around.
