So, I've pretty much always been of the opinion that arguing on the internet is a bad idea, because even if you win you sort of also lose. But what if someone gets up in yo' face and leaves trash in your comments and scuttles your boat? Do you lay the smackdown or what?
Since I'm pretty sure that my posts are too vanilla to raise anyone's ire, I've never experienced what I've heard called the ever-ominous internet "troll." Probably the most inflammatory comment I could get would be something like, "Your baby is ugly!" to which I would respond with a prompt rebuttal of "LIES!" and that would basically be that.
So internet-trolls, don't expect to get a rise out of me. Most likely I will just ignore you; at best I will be delighted to get a comment on my pathetic little corner of the interwebs. I guess that's what I'm saying. Everyone is welcome here!
...Except for spambots. Those guys aren't human and therefore deserve all the smackdown I can muster.
