Short FAQ – What's The Best Way To Handle An Internet Troll?
Question: I'm troubled by the mean comments I find on Twitter and elsewhere, including some that have been directed at me. What can I do?
Answer: Sounds like you've discovered one of the downsides of online interaction: trolls. A troll is someone who uses offensive, inflammatory, or irrelevant messages to illicit emotional responses from others and throw the intended conversation off course. Trolls thrive on conflict, so one of the best ways to deal with them is to ignore them. However, if ignoring doesn't work or isn't an option, there are other steps you can take:
Don't take it personally. A troll's unkind words truly have nothing to do with you; they're more of a reflection of that person's own problems.
Try being nice. Some trolls are actually just people with strong opinions or who need a lot of attention. If you engage with them nicely (such as asking for clarification), they may respond in kind.
Use your settings. Many sites have options that allow you to control whose input you see and don't see. Set yours to omit the troll's posts from your view.
Kick them out. If the site has a moderator, ask that person to take appropriate steps to limit the troll's access or kick them off the site altogether.
Set a good example. Trolls' behavior can remind us that it's easy to hurt other people online. Take extra care to ensure your own messages come across the way in which you intend.
