To exhaust a troll...
Let's face it:
1. Few of us are completely immune from being attacked by trolls
2. Even fewer of us have a ready made suite of tools for effectively and completely dealing with trolls. (While, as a real-world objective this may seem like a fantasy objective to pursue, it stops feeling like a fantasy the day that a troll shows up at YOUR doorstep...putting YOUR reputation and your business at risk...)
The reason I'm starting this particular discussion here on Reputation 2.0 is that I've just had someone try to join one of my forums with the apparent specific objective of wanting to disparage one of my long-term, well-behaved members.
According to the target of the troll, the person seeking to join my forum is "not an ex-girlfriend, ex-customer, nothing"... merely a person who seems to get their kick out of pulling down the reputations of select people.
To some, trolls like this can be intimidating...not much different than being online bullies..
Few of us know how to thoroughly exhaust a troll...but, oddly enough, in taking a cursory look at the reputation of the troll, her own reputation leaves a lot to be desired and a lot of angry people in her wake... others have already blasted her unfairness...but...alas..that hasn't been sufficient to stop her...
Have you ever had to deal with this issue?
Do you have any good strategies to exhaust a troll?
Thanks, and Keep STRONG!!
