We are spending more and more of our time online, which is awesome. But one of the downsides is a higher likelihood of encountering a troll. If a troll starts harassing you online. What do you do?
First, respond back. Communication online is all too common given the lack of body language. There may just be a misunderstanding. If the person responds back with negativity or anger, then you have a troll on your hands.
At this point, you can block the person, delete their comments, or simply ignore them.
Remember, trolls are trolling. They are doing everything they are doing to get a response. Giving them a response will only feed the fire. Don’t feed the trolls!
