Why do Intelligent Posters Respond to Trolls Threads?

. . .especially Williams fans?

You have posters who invent screen names simply to incite anger from you. You fall for it everytime. Now, watch the LD def. Venus troll threads come up. You all will respond to them.

Restraint is definitely needed.

Why would I want to stand side by side when I can stand out on my own?

I don't know didn't you just respond to a thread with the ridiculous verb "crushes" in it referring to this match?

'cketta,
It wasn't for the bait, though. It was to expose the ignorance of the idiot who started the thread. I never take the new posters seriously. As much flack as the fans of other players get on the board, none of them have posters who make up screen names JUST to root against the sisters. . .LOL!!!!!

Those people don't need help showing their ignorance or even contempt. The saying goes if you ignore trolls, they go away. Nothing is gained from engaging with them except risings of tempers.
