Stay Calm and Do Not Feed the Internet Trolls!

 

An Internet Troll is a person whose sole purpose is to search out people to argue with online over mundane or trivial issues in an attempt to provoke. Such disputes happen on blogs, facebook and a number of other sites.

 

The best thing you can do is to avoid them, block them or report them, because once fed, they are never satisfied as they continuously, repeatedly expose their self-imposed superiority time and again and again.

 

The best advice that I can give is to:

  • Consider the source
  • Be positive and self-motivating
  • Continue to be a success story, leaving them in the dust!

 

While I cannot promise an Internet Troll-free zone, the results are tangible and extremely rewarding. Ignore the outside static and the rest will follow. Happy sales all!

Rob D. Shepherd Mt grandfather once told me to "Ignore a barking dog and it will do away." That works MOST of the time!

I agree completely Richie Alan Naggar author of books on Life-Love-Intimacy-Purpose! These people tend to be resting on the fringe, unnoticed and then appear out of nowhere to attack and then feed on responses and the attention they are receiving.

Roger D. Mucci It is interesting how some people will throw out offensive remarks, inserting themselves ungraciously and then want you to agree with them. You can definitely handle your own, I agree!

Great Discussion!  I agree people seek out the lime light - and a moment of fame - and can easily voice their opinions behind a computer screen!

Irene D. Lockel I agree with you, they hide and most likely would NEVER be as aggressive in person!

Roger D. Mucci I love that lady named Mickey, she raised a great person (and family)!

It's unfortunate, but it's also everywhere.  Best to ignore as you advise as much as you want to answer.

Morris Massre This blog was created to warn others about the Internet Troll's agenda. It often has nothing to do with the receiver but wish to be heard LOUD & CLEAR. And if you disagree, oooh-weee!

Hi Wanda -- the comment by Raymond E. Camp sums up my feelings -- far too many experts online.    I do like the term Internet Trolls --- very appropriate term for some very inappropriate people.

Wanda- I must admit, it depends on my mood, and what is said.  And, I do agree with you about not feeding the Internet trolls.  I raise my hand and admit that I have been guilty of this behavior but only when my alter ego takes over.

There are two ways to kill internet trolls: Kill them with kindness or kill them with avoidance. Internet trolls hate both and will move on quickly.

One of my favorite sports radio talk-show hosts refers to these folks as Twitter Warriors.  Those that will say things from a keyboard they would never say to your face.  The ability for respectful disagreement escapes them, usually because they don't have a valid argument.

One of the big Tolls we need to stop feeding are the 3rd party sites that steal our buyers in many different ways.

They are killing us.

Michael Jacobs Yes, Raymond E. Camp's comment makes perfect sense! I can usually ignore some people's poor online behavior, can't control it and must move on quickly to important matters.

Kathy Streib, I have been guilty of participating as well but have learned that antagonists are not particular but will take all comers!

Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert What you say is true! They always seems to find an audience wherever they troll...

Mike Tizzano Your statement says it all very simply, thank you for that...The ability for respectful disagreement escapes them, usually because they don't have a valid argument.

Wanda, some people live for controversy. I am just the opposite as I do not believe there is any value to causing others discomfort
