    This should be interesting. I sometimes ride the fence on the idea of mocking trolls. I ran a blog some time ago that did something similar to this, but I felt that it only encouraged more trolling, and people were even fake trolling just for the attention of it all. “There is no such thing as bad publicity.”

    Improvement suggestion: Is it possible to link back to the original thread this was from? While I guess the comments themselves are moderated it could be interesting.

    Some of the comments make no sense without context. (And a couple of them probably would not make sense with context either, but still…)

    I’m a fan of FNTT. Mocking trolls is a valuable source of fun available to reasonable people living in an unreasonable world.
