Incidents like those are the reasons I can’t and nobody should let those people skate .

Never let them see you sweat .

Not the way I see it .

Anybody that picks on the weak or vulnerable are spineless coward’s . They do it because the vulnerable don’t stick up for their selves .

I have never allowed that and have the scars to prove it .

Why not just move on instead of biting the hook at all? Save the energy for yourself instead of wasting it to win a battle designed to suck your energy.

I don’t feel that I’m defending myself .

The way I’m looking at it is I’m defending others that are incapable of defending theirselves .

I’m not a coward and will stand up for what I think is right.

No one will ever take that away from me as long as I can drawl a breath .

Like I said I was the same way back when I was a kid .

I didn’t win all my fights I got my ass kicked plenty of times. But that didn’t stop me from what I saw was right or wrong. Sure you can get beat up but what are they going to do eat you ?

Win or lose when you stand up for yourself or others. The other persons gonna figure out sooner or later it’s not worth it .

On ATS.
Going after a poster/member often doesn't end well.

That’s why I love this place .

Edit;

I hope nobody’s miss interpreted my words and think I am referring to a ATS in anyway .

I tried to make that clear in the first paragraph of my 0P .

In order to have a scientific protection against trolling, you must first study its theoretical basis.
First scientific work on trolling:
Karel Capek. Twelve methods of literary polemics or benefit from newspaper discussions.

By the way, try to learn such a method of dealing with trolling as elfing

Elfing is a tactic to combat trolling. The method involves a complex intellectual game. I did not find elf methods on the English-speaking Internet, but they are on the Russian Internet.
The first, the simplest, method:
Agree with the enemy in absolutely everything. Absolutely! Even if he starts insulting your mother and homeland. Constantly praise your opponent, write how smart and wonderful he is, and how lucky you are to have such a wise teacher. In each answer, after agreement and praise, change the words and thoughts of your opponent so that they work against him, make him look like an idiot and a madman in the eyes of readers. This should not be done immediately, but gradually, as it grows.
Once upon a time, I practiced elf techniques, but since then I have become older and wiser, and it became not interesting to me.

The goal of the troll is to get out of balance and provoke the interlocutor into thoughtless emotionality. The elf's goal is to do the same with the troll.

Trolls are out to gain something.....a sense of superiority.....a win.

They are vampires......sucking life out of anything they can.

They have no interest in truth.....just blowing out candles in the hope of making their light shine brighter.

It takes a bigger man/woman to simply just walk away.

A troll is someone you took something from that would hurt yourself if you gave it back.

So the troll in fact instigates trolling. It's the whole purpose of trolling? A trollfest. Eating gnomes.

When someone strong defends someone weak against a bully . Is that person being a bully ?

I don’t know where you go on the Internet. But without trying to be cute saying this. ATS is pretty much a safe space .

Did you read some of the crap I’ve been through ?

I don’t know you that well but are you conservative or liberal?

Let me know I can give you a social media site to go to either way. Spend one day there start a thread and have a strong counter opinion to the forum you’re on .

Then come back and tell me whether you still have the same opinion .

That’s the easiest thing there is this say. It makes whoever says it sound above everything in control and righteous .

The problem is I’ve never met one person on the Internet they can actually do it .

It’s like someone saying I’ve never said a mean thing to anyone in my life that I wouldn’t say to their face .

It’s bull# . Lol

But it sure sounds neat .
