Default Re: Concerns Members Have About Enforcement of Forum Rules

Have to admit, sometimes I reply to trolls in the hope of changing their minds. It's obvious when they are being provocative, but nevertheless.

These people don't perceive themselves trolls, they think they are doing justice of some sort, but perhaps if it can be established (with them) that they are doing something wrong, and I know it's a long shot with some people, but if you can actually get someone to understand from another perspective, you might hit the jackpot.

Easier said than done, I know.

With some people there is no negotiation, no debate, no room for any opinion sharing, and it becomes evident very quickly. If a pertinent query is not even acknowledged, well there you go!
