The D.E.N.N.I.S. system for handling trolls

General Discussion
First you need to DEMONSTRATE value, you can do that by being positive and not giving in to cynicism. This will attract the troll and make them interested and attack.

Next you'll need to ENGAGE responsively. You must respond quickly to hook them.

Then you're going to want to NURTURE that troll's dependence. Foster their need, appear to be slipping up, let them think they've got -you- hooked.

Now it's time to NEGLECT emotionally. Totally stop replying to their flames. Give others all the attention and resume the topic.

The troll will keep trying though, so INSPIRE hope by doing one last response. This is the most intimate and tender moment, where the troll believes they got you back.

Finally then, it's time to SEPERATE ENTIRELY. Put them on ignore and don't even read their posts. Only engage others and repeat the process if they use alts.
Thank you Snowfox! We have plenty of trolls in GD so this is a great tutorial!

He is my favorite character, such a likeable sociopath!
Close the thread or tab over to something else. You have a million tools at your disposal to not get booty bothered on WoW or its forums.

Some one got confused between post count and achievements.
That is why you have to troll fast and hard! Then git out! You can’t neglect me, I’ll neglect you first!

Incredible advice, thank you Snowfox, it's amazing you're not an mvp. You should've been given that status a long time ago!
