This might work: Next time you see someone responding to a troll, send a personal message to the responder, telling him why he shouldn't respond. I did that recently. Two people replied in a personal message to me, "Thanks, I forgot," or words to that effect. One replied that he didn't think the person he replied to was a troll. Later, after the thread turned into your typical piss-fight, he PM'd me again and said I was right.

If we keep this up, eventually everyone will be educated. But one person (me, for instance) can't do it alone. There is far too much trolling going on for one person to keep up with it. We all need to do it.

wise words Jim. I try to ignore them (suspected Trolling posts)- but sometimes they do manage to push my buttons.
