Top Ten Reasons Not to Feed TheTopTens Trolls


The Top Ten

1 It's what they want

Bingo! People (for whatever reason) tend to feed trolls without knowing that's what they want. So basically you're falling under their trap. They want you to get offended and worked up about it. Show some respect for yourself at least. - Aragorn98

10 Feeding trolls is completely pointless

"Troll" is a term concocted by Internet users to marginalize anyone whose opinion doesn't comply with the groupthink embraced by "regulars" on any given site. "Feeding" trolls is no more than actually engaging that differing opinion in logical debate; something rare on this site, where the "safe space" of groupthink seems the prime directive. Deletions (censorship) of comments offering facts and logical argument, which the group cannot counter, are the norm, here. "Fandoms" are often sharply criticized by users of this site, who seem blissfully unaware that they comprise their own.
