  •  I agree: disruption IS trolling (0+ / 0-)

    And, for a stretch of time during last summer's Snowden Wars, I took the same tack, as did others.  But after a while we saw that HRing the disrupters didn't stop them, and ended up being counter-productive becaue using HRs led to the kind of 'extending the disruption' methods I described above.

    So then a few people started recommending just ignoring them, and I experimented with that, as did others.  It turned out that ignoring them is pretty effective.  You'll be reading down a thread, seeing comments and discussion with tips in their jars, then see a comment by a known disrupter (or one that uses known-disrupter methods), and its tip jar is a big fat zero (or may 1-2-3 tips from fellow travelers).

    What's that Klingon thing?  Where they cross their arms over their chests and turn their backs on someone?  Discommodation?

    Do as you will, just advice from a veteran.
