The problem with this is that while one may indeed ignore the provocative remarks started and escalated by trolls, others on a board do not. And this is the source of much amusement to the trolls. So, it's easy to say, "ignore." And might as well also say, "why not play the trolls' games?" After all, it keeps member numbers and discussion posts up, right?

I don't promise to ignore or accept, but already the trolls have influenced me: I don't peruse this board as often as I once did.
