    No, you aren't going to convince the trolls. But on a regular news site there are other readers who are willing to hear the truth on matters of fact and another side on matters of opinion. Assuming you aren't leaping in there and acting like a dick yourself you can be making a very useful contribution if your comments inform the uninformed, and encourage those who are inlcined to your views but are being barraged by the haters.
