  •  It depends (7+ / 0-)

    If it's not something simple, which can be responded to simply (in my live thread yesterday on the Euro 2102 final someone commented that he or she comes to DKos to get away from sports [the title was AAAAAAAAAARGH!!!!], I responded thus:

    if you hate something (2+ / 0-)

    then just ignore it.  Noted, recorded, untipped.

    Of course most of my diaries don't lend themselves to a simple response. From experience with all kinds of negative commenters, these days I let other commenters deal with it, and otherwise walk away, this after I tried to deal with a situation via kosmail and had my message copied into a subsequent comment, which produced a long comment thread by other people about donuts for that behavior.  VERY rarely, and only if I know the commenter already, will I use Kosmail for that any more.

    Or at least that's what I try to do.
