If you can identify a troll...

Why respond?

The recent 'Leaving M43' thread has stirred up quite a commotion as usual... and it hit 119 replies before being locked. One hundred and nineteen.

If you're so sure that a thread starter is a troll, just don't respond. Doesn't matter how snarky or clever your response it. Don't attempt to prove him wrong. The more you respond, the more you invite similiar posts in the future, because it becomes clear how to elicit a big response in this forum.

Spend your time elsewhere, answering a real question, posting a thread to show your new pictures or offer constructive criticism somewhere. Cos if you truly believe that someone's a troll, replying to them is really counterproductive in:

1. Not wasting your own time

2. Dissuading future trolls

3. Directing the energy of this forum towards things actually related to photography
