Best way to change the tone of a board is:
a) Post content
b) Respond to other substantive posts
c) Ignore troll/worthless posts

When you respond to a troll, you are not "putting him in his place," you are feeding him. Learning to derive pleasure from ignoring a troll is like learning to enjoy folding a hand in poker.

Well put. I can't see getting worked up by a message board. There is even an ignore feature. If a poster is that bothersome to you, use it.

Thank you zogby...more good perspective. From this point on I'm going to do just that.

First exercise...passed.

Not a bad or faulty analogy. Of course, every now and then when you get dealt 2-7 the hand is 'free' when you're the big blind and everybody checks and you get flopped 2-7-7, so...

Can't fold 'em all! :lol:
