A Brief Lesson on Etiquette From Negaoryx


Andrew Donaldson

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonder and Home.

    99% of the time they ignore trolls, 1% of the time they…give the trolls exactly what they want?

    Bullies want to make you do something. If you do something, they win. Even if you hit them, you’re hitting them because they made you do it. This person went on a two-minute rant that wouldn’t have happened without the bully.

    “but banning them is Doing Something, if you’re not supposed to Do Something then, what, you just let them be horrible in the chat?” Yeah, well, there’s doing something, and then there’s doing something. Like, you can Do Something by clicking the “ban” button and getting on with your day, or you can Do Something by allowing the bully to be a short-term co-author for your Content Creation act. Like, you can give the bully a small win or a big one; which seems better?Report

      Recognize the symbiotic relationship. Troll got his attention jollies, troll target gets hers for being so “brave” standing up to the mean person in the screen.

      Isn’t this why people watch professional wrestling?Report
