How can the collective members of the forum argue with any member who's political opinions include calling someone a "secret Muslim", a socialist,  or relating them to being Nazis or Hitler? Or with someone who makes racist or anti-religious remarks on a consistent basis? Isn't it time that we stop feeding the troll? If you stop replying to the crap that he puts out, he will go away.

Not that I'm talking about anyone in specific... just a hypothetical...

Because a troll like that feeds not only on differing opinions, but also grows from spewing their opinions unopposed, as it makes them more right in their mind.

Short term thinking. Refuse to post in his threads for long enough and he will go away.

Then he just trolls threads we have made. He's a well practiced troll and makes you irrationally irritated with him, it's hard to ignore... hypothetically.

Threads like this are juuuuust as much feed. And therefore, not really constructive.

If you want to debate, debate. If you want to ignore, ignore.
Public browbeating, no matter how 'subtle' you like to pretend it is....isn't exactly a winning strategy.
