They just provoke people into having a conversation with them. That feels pretty empty, because it’s not relational, it’s transactional. Next day, they just wake up and troll some other people. My hobby is to hug the trolls by making sure that people who address me directly and try to provoke me, I interpret their comments and only reply to the constructive parts. If there are any part of the message that makes me upset, I make sure that I just put on some new music, some new tea, and associate with the negative verbal stimuli with a pleasant, nonverbal stimuli.
