    Wise words. I’ve found myself, against my better judgement, embroiled in exchanges with trolls on Facebook and You Tube in the last couple of days. And I remembered your words about walking away which is exactly what I did. What did I learn? That you cannot reason with a troll, they just hurl more insults and have to have the last word . So I offer them the last word and I’m gone. Yesterday and today, I’ve been called “autistic” and a “simpleton”, lol. Their predictable behaviour genuinely does make me laugh. I may continue to say my piece, but I will continue to walk away with a smile.

    Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you over the head with experience.
