    Trolling is an art few can master well. Very corny article. So out of touch with the pulse of the reality of trolling.

    The infographic misspeled "", and is in no way accessibility-friendly (at least I don't know of any screen readers that will OCR and speak an image).

    Best - just don't feed the trolls. Ignore them and they will go away sooner. They thrive on dissent and anger. The less of it they get, the sooner they move on to other targets of their hate and obnoxiousness. Don't play their silly game. - Or as a famous person once said ( I saw this attributed to George Carlin) "Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience."
