Something I'm going to start...but in the end, you will all succumb to mah logic....trolls should be fed and you should be feeding them. Neveruse513 17:21, 4 March 2009 (EST)

Why? It wastes our time, and it only encourages the troll to continue. --  Nx/talk  17:22, 4 March 2009 (EST)
Short answer: lulz and eventual deterence. long answers will hopefully come later. Neveruse513 17:26, 4 March 2009 (EST)
If you want the troll to win then feed him. If you want him to leave, ban him.DSFARGEG 17:30, 4 March 2009 (EST)
But if you troll a troll are they really trolling? Neveruse513 17:33, 4 March 2009 (EST)
In that situation you have 2 people snickering on the ends of their PCs, thinking they've outwitted the other. An experienced troll will know when he's being trolled and do one of 2 things: Leave for more lulzy targets, or stay and up the ante.DSFARGEG 17:59, 4 March 2009 (EST)
