    • The secret to debating a troll is to recognize that you will never convince the troll of anything, but you may convince third parties who are reading the thread.

      So make your point to the best of your ability. Counter any logical arguments. Ignore the flamebait. Stop when you notice you’re about to repeat yourself.

      The troll may go around claiming victory, but he’s irrelevant. Those who actually care about the subject will see your argument and come away learning something even if they don’t end up agreeing with you.

      • Good advice. Another tip: Claim victory if the troll changes the subject. 😀 Because that’s their tactic – if they’re losing one augment, they change subjects.
