Introduction: How to Keep Trolls From Ruining an Excellent Site.
We all know that some people cannot stand creativity and success, and they will do their utmost to ruin everyone else's good time. Someone got a bug under their skin and decided to ruin things for everyone. My young daughter has an account on this site, and I have to limit her interactivity while this Troll is about.
There is ONE THING and ONE THING only that will stop a Troll: Make it boring. If trolling this site becomes the most boring thing in the world, he/she will stop. We can all clearly see that their contributions are useless and pointless, but we still give them attention. If we no longer feed that need, they will go elsewhere for it.
Please Don't Feed the Trolls!
Bore them!! Give the troll no reason to bother us. Even the most sensical of comments gives the troll a reason to 'Be', and to continue posting drivel. Dan and the others can only spend so much time policing fools like this one, let's help make it easy by NOT feeding the trolls. :-)
