I have been battling two
very persistent trolls on Google Groups now for about two years. They latched
on to me from Ebay, and also by reading my FS/FA ads on Usenet. I did a search
and found your website on trolls/stalkers.
I adopted your strategies, using
"branding" and a "no-reply" course of action. If they post
on their own, I brand them using your format. If they reply to my branding posts,
I ignore their post and don't reply.
I also toy with the trolls occasionally
when I want a good laugh- by using your "mocking" technique - I assign
their posts a "troll-o-meter" rating, that simply drove one troll bananas
- and he went berserk posting flames after that. I then "branded" him
again, pasting his Google URL profile link, which lists all his posts he just
made while he was in a rage - making him look even worse.
For the last three
days I've been laughing my nuts off at these two trolls- they have also found
your site and attempted to flame me for using it - but they have no defense against
And both of them, knowing they ARE the trolls, don't dare
use your techniques on me- their posts just don't stick or hold any water.
for the great info. So far one troll has lost two Ebay accounts, the other has
lost one Ebay account- and both have lost a few Google accounts between them.
I also hammered their ISP's with complaints, and they have lost some newsreader
rights and a few ISP's as well.
Your technique WORKS !
your site is kryptonite or something to trolls - they know it's there, they have
read all the anti-troll countermeasures, but they can't use them against me -
their troll nature won't allow it.
They know they are trolls, and for some
reason, true full-blooded trolls not only crumble
under brands and mocks,
but their troll nature won't allow them to use brands and mocks effectively against
others who are not trolls. It's uncanny- and funny as hell !! Maybe they're just
They did try to razz me about using your site for tips - but
I simply used your #1 recommended weapon, and ignored their posts. So their countermeasure
posts wilted on the vine with no replies, making them look like panzy-waists rather
