Amy’s Bad Advice #9

It’s worth what you Paid for it.

This long overdue piece of advice comes with a song and an important question. Heed friends! Heed!

There once was a troll,

Guarding a bridge,

He wouldn’t let you pass,

Until you did what he says.

And his special request,

goes something like this………..

Fuck the rest. You don’t need to cater to the asinine requests of a troll. Period.

But what should you do if you get trolled online?

This situation can’t be fun no matter where it happens, but when your professional website or blog gets bogged down by an online troll, it’s critical you deal with it in a way that doesn’t detriment the hard work you’ve invested in building your platform. My reaction is be the bigger person and react and engage with the person as kindly as possible, win them over as it were, despite how painful that might feel.

But when that doesn’t work, what do you do? Block them, erase everything and pretend it didn’t happen. Or just call them out and tell them to get a life and jog on?

Enquiring minds (mine) need to know!

What would you do?

Tell me all about it in the comments.

Cheers, Amy
