Thread Name: BS: How to Deal With People Complaining
Subject: RE: BS: How to Deal With People Complaining
Please be aware that we cannot tolerate combat here, no matter how righteous the cause. That statement also applies to you, Gervase....
There are a few people who like to stir things up here. We call them trolls, and they are despicable - but what's worse is the general outrage from those who respond to them. The trolls are actually quite civilized, but the self-righteous response from indignant Mudcatters is not.
Over the last few weeks, I have received a number of messages of condemnation from Mudcatters who are outraged that we do not stand up to the trolls. Look, people - trolls want to do battle. That's what they live for. The best way to respond to them is NOT to do battle.
