    Anyway, the two best ways to deal with a possible troll are A.) Do absolutely nothing. And B.) Respond in a clear, informative, and sincere manner and if things are obviously out of hand(A.K.A. there's no way it's not a troll), then just don't respond. Trolls respond to attention. If we give them attention in a negative way, or a positive way and keep it up like a fool, then we feed them. This might even count this post. I'm saying this because if everyone follows this this forum will have a better atmosphere AND we'll get rid of trolls. I'm accusing nobody of anything by the way; if the shoe fits, wear it. I don't need to accuse anyone who says I'm accusing them because they just did it to themselves.
