“Do not feed the troll” is still the best advice

Feels like an innocent request from Techdirt:

Do you have examples of communities or individuals coming up with unique, creative or innovative ways to respond to hateful, abusive or trollish speech?

but I still think silence is the best response. Block and report the trolls to the authorities because engaging in any ways with them will only make things worse.

The old advice “Don’t feed the troll!” is still the best advice.
