shun the trolls..its healthier for you (and doesn't give them any satisfaction)
Ultimately, the research concluded that you're not doing yourself any favors by responding to rude people or people who make you angry. You also get the side benefit that the best weapon against those types of people is ostracism.

11. yes in general, and it's definitely the best way to handle it at DU
DU rules make this especially important, particularly in threads you care about. I got a post hidden yesterday for (not-so-subtly) implying a troll who was baiting me was an asshole, which he predictably alerted as a personal attack. Some people may not be aware that if you get a post hidden by jury, you cannot post additional content to that thread. So be careful and, if you feel by gosh you must respond, for goodness sake don't cuss.
