Subject: RE: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
Steve, while I'm pretty sure you already hate me, I'll share this anyway.
I once complained to an acquaintance that a person kept saying things on Mudcat that were stupid, and annoying, and I felt like I had to do something about that.
He told me "Don't play with trolls".
I said, "But he's so wrong and what he says shouldn't be allowed to stand unchallenged."
He said "Don't play with trolls."

While people may not BE trolls, when they provoke an emotional response in you, the messages are trolling. Don't play.

And me, I'll shut up and f*ck off in accordance with imagined reaction to this. Please carry on.

(My "troll" was Martin Gibson, if anyone remembers.)
