Aura, another reason for me not getting involved in this instance is that I know my friend is perfectly capable of defending herself. Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t “mastered” the approach I wrote about. It’s the standard I aspire to and offer as an alternative.

I know plenty of people who take on trolls and come to the defense of others, but their approach is not so much a counter attack but more of a stoic defense of sound reasoning and a clear declaration that faulty logic and bad behavior are not tolerated here. You know, the old “…get off my lawn” approach.
