Welcome!!!! But the sad thing is that there really are trolls around. Sound intelligent. Just asking questions. And questions. Then the remarks begin. A different opinion. Trying to "egg" someone into an argument. I've been there myself. The best way is to do this is ignore any remarks at all. And if this doesn't work, go to his profile page and click the button that stops his remarks from showing up on your page. Genius. I've done it a time or two myself. Other than a few, we have a wonderful forum. Check out your state thread under Where am I Where are you? in socials. PM me anytime with questions.

The best thing to do when you meet up with a suspected troll (and remember, not all are actually trolls) is to not engage them, reply to them, flame them or otherwise interact. Use the report button and the Staff will review the post and take action as needed.
We can't stress enough to Use the Report Button. PMing a Staff member who might have gone to bed, work or family time only delays action. Flaming or troll baiting might end up with you getting an infraction. Trolling goes both ways. If you troll a troll, then who is trolling?
