Trolls and climate change supporters, what a waste of time.

But if you're working all day on this stuff, they can make a pleasant distraction that brightens up an otherwise monotonous day.


You have actual, factual, on-the-ground and useful work to do Paul, so please be careful.

Trolls will wear you down - and paid trolls the more so. You will never, ever, not in a million years win an argument with them or get them to admit they're wrong. You will have to bow out of any thread eventually because you will get fed up. You know this.

At that point, they claim victory.

They will have 'won' the 'argument' (a) despite the fact that there never was an argument and (b), although it sharpens you and your delivery of real facts, these (paid) stalkers deal, not in truth, but in doubt and its proliferation, so you are actually helping them 'win' the non-existent argument.

You know all this already. Wink

This is of course addressed to Mobbsey specifically but, since it's a thread, look out! here comes a hijacker... Laughing Laughing

I thought that might put him off.
