AI: Feed a fever; Starve a troll
Recently, there’s been a lot of talk about troll feeding. And by recently, I mean the last decade or so.
More recently, Jay Smooth posted a video about why you should feed the trolls. It’s pretty much in keeping with Rebecca’s policy here that “not feeding the trolls”= shhhh polite people don’t talk about being harassed.
On one hand: feeding the trolls gives them the attention that they want.
On the other hand: Ignoring the trolls results in giving them the power to continue trolling, and even escalating their behavior without consequence.
What are your thoughts on troll feeding? Ignore? Call out? Other?
