Ok so first of all, “trolling’ does not refer to trolls as in under the bride, it’s refering more to trolling as in fishing. 

This article is dead wrong. This is cleary written by someone who is butthurt because the were trolled.

The purpose of trolling is to get people mad and upset. The person trolling does not get mad or upset by your response. Any response that is negative is their goal.

The only way to shut down a troll is not not react.

What he seems to be trying to help with here is something known as Poe’s law – the idea that it can be hard to tell between a troll and an actual crazy or stupid person, because some people really are that crazy/stupid. Unfortunately his cues don’t really help that much.

@phillybride61513:  Maybe he is, but he has a 2% understanding of what trolling is and how it’s done. Whoever trolled him is LOL at this article. :

Yeah that read more like “criticisms of commenters on my blog posts who annoy me.” I’m guessing he doesn’t handle differences of opinion very well (though I’m sure he does run into lots of people who express it poorly or with hostility, as we all do). Not a great read though.

Either he’s way off base, or he’s actually trolling his readers with that post. Lol.
