It is a trade off to keep feeding these trolls yet not leaving their rants unanswered and in a sense allowing them to thus "win" the temporal debate. No easy answer on how to deal with such folks, but in many ways better probably better to answer as long as you can stand it. It does become just a waste of time to listen to what they say as well.
I follow the post "America is a Christian Nation" for one reason. This member, onlinedad, has made statements that I found to be obnoxious, filthy, and anti-semitic, and, as Jew, highly offensive. Half the time he cannot even spell correctly and seems to make a fool of himself quite regularly. The twerp who moderates this thread found no problem with my specific references to his anti-semitic statements, and as such, I continually follow the post waiting for his next anti-semitic rant so that I can use it to follow thru to organizations that deal with such trash and might be willing to serve notice on this forum that such trash will not be tolerated--obviously my pleadings were not sufficient for the moderator to at least issue a warning to the cretin. Just sayin
