Re^3: Do Not Feed the Trolls!!!
in thread Do Not Feed the Trolls!!!
Taking a break from something can be a good thing and maybe that's what you need to do. However, I’m concerned that you are avoiding the real problem -- you are letting the troll get to you when you need to let it go. That's something that can be very hard to do, but if you can work on that you will be a happier person in the long run.
There’s an implied “ignore the troll” when people say “do not feed the troll” – that’s because ignoring them is in essence starving them. The next time you feel like responding to a troll take several deep breaths -- and then just let it go. Just ignore it. It’s beneath you to respond. I hope you give that a try and I hope you stick around. PerlMonks may not die if you leave but I am sure several of us will miss ++’ing your interesting posts.
