Do you call out Trolls?
Ignore them or call them out? Most people say "Do not feed the Trolls" but if I call them out - aren't I'm the one being the Troll then? https://youtu.be/36MWcj98QmY
Well, it depends. Some trolls are harmless and some are toxic. It's best to ignore them, but trolling really shouldn't be tolerated. It brings down the overall quality of any site that allows trolling.
Uh? What does calling out trolls mean. Are they like spirits?
Main Question: Generally no. Consider a troll is firstly defined with complete subjectivity and then collective. To me to call someone out means to challenge them like “Hey let’s meet in the parking lot and discuss this”.
Question #2: This question is regard to strategy IMO. I will ignore, probably won’t call them out, but may enter dialogue if I am not sure they are trolling. Thus, again, is defining some entity as a troll. Consider on the worldwide web a troll can be an entity composed of many persons.
Question #3: No unless you decide to be one. A troll is specific to a nature. Without becoming a Hub (maybe later) a troll is based on olden Norse Myth. A troll is not a gnome or a ghoul / ghost. A troll lives in a cave or under bridge. Their intent is to scare or cause fright.
They want to disrupt a traveler’s journey and then run back into their cave or under bridge. Their tactics are screaming like a banshee, throwing rocks and sticks, and they like the cover of darkness. Sometimes when the collective stops passing by their cave or bridge they may scare another troll out of their lair. More can be learned of trolls with the Poetic Edda and some Scandinavian lore and legend.
Of course this is based upon experience, is a humble opinion, and myth.
Got the audio from 'Beowulf and Grendel 2005 movie. The best version (now unable to find) is Beowulf radio drama, "Out from the misty moors came .. Grendel" Wish I can find that version again.
Thanks twice ptosis :-). Choosing as best and the interesting story to read. I am a fan of Norse myth and Britain legend. I enjoyed reading about Beowulf's life adventure. I found it inspiring. I have a story of patches now in that era.
I wonder what it is that I do but I don't seem to have any problem with trolls. Where do you go to find them? I think I might like to meet one. Are they hideous and disgusting. Or just harmless creatures looking for some attention. Can they hurt you if you do not let them?
Come on little troll. Here is a biscuit.
I don't have to walk over a bridge, so I never had that issue. But I think I might have hit one with my car
I have to watch that. I was referring to the Three Billy Goats Gruff fairy tale.

Trolls: Ignore them of Confront them?Since the advent of forums and content sites, trolls have infiltrated the system and tried to gum it up with their insipid responses. How do you deal with trolls? Do you ignore or confront them? Give reason for your response, please.

Doesn't bother me one bit. I laughed and see the patheticness in these people so much now but decided I wanted to post about it and see if this has happened to anyone else. On one of my poems here is what someone wrote,"I am concerned about the image you selected, a silhouette of a woman...

I know that the Squids are used to this feature, but it is new to us Hubbers. Can someone give a Hub example where they are used? I'd love some examples of beautiful formatting.

Yup, there are trolls on hubpage forums. The goal of a troll is to make the 'victim' lose his/her cool. Then the troll is won. According to a recent study, trolls really are nasty people. They want to humiliate, embarras, belittle,, etc. They don't have any friends and are jealous people.They have...
