Trolls, jerks, and more trolls

“Rubbish.”

“You’re a bigoted arsehole.”

“Kill yourself.”

Outrageous, isn’t it?

In this digital age, insults like these are inescapable.

When it comes to dealing with bullies – both on and offline – there’s no secret formula.

All you can do is ditch your ego; use your common sense to see if it’s trolling or useful criticism; and get angry and move on. Go outside and throw water balloons against a tree, if you may.

Just make sure you don’t hurt anyone – and throw away the debris.

    Thanks for letting me know about your new blog. Yep, trolling is awful. I always told my children to ask yourself will what this person say or do matter year from now? Most of the time it didn’t, so they like you ignored and bunched a pillow 🙂

    Sadly there are some nasties around and the digital medium makes it more easy for them to say nasty things sometimes. I usually try not to engage them and block/ mark them as spam where appropriate and focus on the nice people that I’ve met online instead.
