    I know I don't post very often, but I do read quite a few of the threads. One thing I've noticed is (what I think is) a mistake in dealing with a certain person on this forum who I believe is a troll.

    I won't mention any user name, but the person to whom I'm referring has the designation of"State Researcher" listedunder his/her user name. Now, I'm thinking the person is given that title by the owners of this forum, and it's up to them to ban or not ban this person.

    I think, though, we make a mistake if we give this user any notice at all. Why do that? By answering that person's posts, we just give credence to his/her comments. I'd propose we just ignore, COMPLETELY, that person's posts. Don't quote, don't answer, don't acknowledge, just ignore.

    Good advice for the care and feeding of any troll, suspected or real.

    Has anyone noticed the increased frequency of FNGs with two or three posts asking for advice (from a position of complete ignorance) and abusing those who give advice, including advice to use proper English?

    Is this the same troll who cannot answer the simple question "Do you open carry"?
