This is basically what passed through my mind when I saw a journal about the same subject in the journal portal lately. I thought it was a joke but sadly not. This is not a guide but a hit-me-in-the-face-common-sense statement.

This is based on my *insert how many years the internet has been around for* years experience in different online communities.

:bulletgreen:Doing nothing 'bad' won't change anything:bulletgreen:

You will avoid making forum threads when you're new?
You will avoid starting arguments?
You will keep your political agenda and religion to yourself?
What next?  How about not uploading anything in case a big meanie troll comes? How about not commenting anywhere in case the big meanie troll sees it?

Whatever you do, wherever you do it, face it-this is the internet. You'll see a few trolls here and there. How about ignoring them or...

:bulletgreen:THE BLOCK FEATURE-LEARN HOW TO USE IT:bulletgreen:

Someone's annoying you? Doing something you don't want to put up with etc? Well just block them and forget about it. Here's how:
FAQ #96: Can I block people from interacting with me?

This will prevent people from commenting on your page and all your deviations or replying to anyone there. There, that's it.

What if they make another account and start harassing you from there? Well file a ticket and send it to the helpdesk, it's against the rules to do so. Several members, even ex-volunteers and a current one have been banned in the past for block evading. It's very simple really.

Another response: do not feed the trolls. If you don't reply to them they get bored and move on. Trolls LIVE for dramatic reactions :D
But sometimes, it's just hilarious to feed the horribly bad trolls XD
