Is it ok to hate trolls ?

Or to troll haters?

I'd say it's hard not to react negatively, but that can spoil your enjoyment of the site & gives the troll/hater a power they don't deserve. Best to try to shake it off.

it's definitely worked with the gang, it's nice when people can post without them being nasty and hijacking every thread.

Indeed it is, Erontquay.
Makes for a more amiable forum.

Works especially well on those who are so ignorant to the fact that is they who are the problem.

Wonder if there's any tips for how to deal with those with a victim complex?

Yes. Shoot them.

Makes a nice change the cowards not going around in a pack attacking decent posters.

Must be so frustrating for the troll who continually post snide comments on others threads and still gets ignored. This is the reason why they never actually contribute anything worthwhile to WW, they don't have time due to belittling others.

Replied: 26th Sep 2016 at 10:56

Posted by: dodger (3414)

Indeed Joseph, so far today he has put a snide remark on every post.
Just keep ignoring them, this site is now much better.

I don't think they have the intellectual capacity to add anything to the threads,hence the snide remarks.

Replied: 26th Sep 2016 at 11:28

Somethings frightened the gang, I wonder if it's a pathetic individual calling Ww a "human zoo" that's done it.

Does he not no this is Wigan no1 forum.

I hate, bullies, people who follow each other around in a pack, think they own this site and think there above people and everything revolves around them

The best response is not giving one eront

Take away the audience and let them speak to themselves
