Do Not Feed the Troll

A troll or flamer is (adapted from this):

1. A name-caller
2. Competitive/argumentative
3. Amoral
4. Vengeful
5. Deceitful
6. Narcissistic
7. Paranoid
8. Blind to his own faults
9. Hypocritical
10. Unable to take responsibility for his words

Proverbs 26: 4-5
Do not answer a fool according to his folly,
Or you will also be like him.
Answer a fool as his folly deserves,
That he not be wise in his own eyes.

Proverbs 10:8
The wise of heart will receive commands,
But a babbling fool will be ruined.

Proverbs 18:2
A fool does not delight in understanding,
But only in revealing his own mind.

  1. Ah….”don't feed the Trolls.” I'm fortunate to have not had much of a problem with trolls in my five and a half years of blogging.

    Have you had many troubles?

  2. Not too many lately. I did at one time, hence the comment moderation. But a friend of mine has a couple of really prickly commenters, sorta “flamer-lite” types, who constantly make passive-aggressive comments. You know, the insult-followed-by-LOL-JK dudes.

  3. True, true. And they might as well — why not have a personalized soapbox that can be easily avoided by those who don't want to feed the troll? 😉
