When I was first targeted by a Medium troll, I engaged in an endless discussion in which I was trashed repeatedly. The exchange was like a bad dream that won’t end. I learned that such discussions are fruitless and frustrating time and energy wasters. Not that I expect to change anyone’s opinions but do expect a polite discourse. Once one of these trolls attacks, more follow like ants at a picnic. I may choose to engage for one or two comments and have found that sarcasm works remarkably well at shutting down a troll. Otherwise, blocking is the only option.

I enjoyed your piece, Mateja Klaric. Excellent advice and the Buddhist reference was an interesting touch showing the advantage of releasing and letting go.
