Didn’t want to put this in the post, but just a comment— repeating internet slanders, even if only to refute them, just increases people’s willingness to believe them—the stalkers like to say that I’m an ex porn star (! all true— I’m actually Jenna Jamison), for example. Taking the time to refute this just perpetrates the smear and makes them very happy.

I’ve often thought this about internet trolls- if you repeat their claims, even if only to refute them! —it just increases people’s willingness to believe the claim, and there’s some kind of weird feedback mechanism where the troll gets joy out of the repetition of their slander.

Another good reason to refrain from quoting the troll (besides not wanting your brilliant retort to be deleted for containing the quotation).
