    There are certain topics I won't even open. And there are certain discussions I won't participate in. There is only one person on my ignore list, but I have considered one other. Anyway, I vote for A. And I vote for A after you did B and realized the mistake.

    My preference is to engage if the topic is of interest to me, but remove myself from the discussion as soon as I get irritated. It's not worth stressing over, and not worth bringing negativity to the forums, even if "someone else started it". In the case that I believe you are referencing, I chose to respond to clarify some things of interest to me, but I will probably not say any more.

    I prefer to ignore them, especially the one that you're referencing. Trolling is a red flag that you are not significant intellectually, physically, or emotionally.

    And if I had the opportunity to find the bridge that these trolls live under I'd push the devil out the backdoor into their mailbox.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    A: Keep him on the ignore list, hope others figure out how craked he is for themselves

    Ahh...
    I think I know this one... the one who seems to be the Yin to Ol' Grizz's Yang, perhaps?

    Ignore it and maybe it'll go away. *shrug*

    Quite frankly, if it's a topic I know'll piss me off, I stay away. If it qualifies under "didn't we JUST have this argument,"or obvious trolling, I usually try to avoid them. Emphasis on try.

    I don't know who you're referencing, but sometimes I ignore them and other times I might try to make a reasoned response, until like sbhikes, I realize I've made a mistake and there is no point.

    If no one responds, they eventually get bored and go away.
    Responding to a troll is like feeding a celiac Pop-Tarts. You'll get the intellectual equivalent of swamp gas and diarrhea from them, and I think it negatively affects the whole dynamic of the forum.
