Bloggers Share Their Signature Responses to Trolls

A few weeks back I was talking with some blog buddies about the best way to respond to trolls. Should we ignore them? Tell them to peace out? Stalk their IP addresses? Even after all these years I’m still unsure what to do.

A couple of my blogging friends casually mentioned they had signature responses to trolls. Huh, I never thought of adopting one of those. Since I seem to be a troll magnet lately, surely I could get some good use out of a signature response.

What kind of message did I want to convey to my misguided trolls? Clever? Gangsta? Professional? Sweet? A combo of gangsta sweet? I’m still working on it… 

I collected a few of my fellow blogger’s signature responses and conjured up a few of my own. Feel free to collect ‘em all or add your own in the comments below!
