I suggest a change to this website's terms of service which would prohibit responding to troll posts. This is because by responding to troll posts, you make the trolling worse. By ignoring the trolls, the trolls will stop trolling and move on to something productive.

FAQ's:


1. But the judgement of whether or not something is a troll post is subjective!

Yes, but almost every other rule on this website is enforced via subjective judgements of whether or not a certain behavior violates the said rule. Also, the judgement can be made more objective by having a post "downvoting" system, which would allow people to "downvote" troll posts.

ignoring trolls is single handedly the worst way you can deal with them. You have to be mega-aggressive with them, ruin their lives as much as possible. Date their mom, marry them, make their bed time two hours earlier, and turn off the wifi at 10

Go vote on one of my debates. I'm not that smart, so it'll probably be an easy decision.
