Arguing with troll doesn’t work

Published 3:08pm Saturday, June 22, 2013

I’m writing to express my surprise and disappointment with a letter writer for writing what amounts to the Nixon-esque “enemies list” in his most recent letter to the editor. It seems a very irresponsible thing to do, to be sure.

To those of you who were fortunate to make this list, I would like to venture some unsolicited advice: Don’t feed the trolls. A troll’s existence is only validated by bullying people from relative anonymity and waiting for a response. Rinse. Repeat. Your time will be better spent on other endeavors.
