TROLL WARNING
INTERNET COMMUNITY
RELAYED BY YOUTUBE
JULY 22 2011

THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE IS TRANSMITTED AT THE REQUEST OF THE INTERNET COMMUNITY.

A TROLL WARNING HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR THE INTERNET UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. SEVERAL INTERNET
USERS HAVE BEEN REPORTED POSTING ITEMS ON THE INTERNET TO ELICIT A RESPONSE FROM OTHER
USERS. THESE USERS ARE CALLED TROLLS... AND WILL ONLY LEAVE IF YOU STOP RESPONDING TO THEM.
DELETING THEIR CONTENT HELPS TO FIGHT AGAINST TROLLS. DO NOT CALL TROLLS NAMES. THIS
INCLUDES CALLING TROLLS TROLLS. CALLING TROLLS NAMES IS PART OF THE EMOTIONAL RESPONSE
THEY DESIRE. GIVING WARNING STATEMENTS WHICH PURELY INVOLVE FUTURE ACTIONS IS NOT PART OF
THE RESPONSE THEY DESIRE. IF TROLLS CONTINUE TO PESTER YOU OR YOUR WEBSITE... DELETE THEM
FROM FRIEND LISTS... BLOCK THEM FROM WIKIS... AND/OR TAKE OTHER MEASURES TO PREVENT THEM
FROM TROLLING. TROLLING A TROLL WILL NOT HELP ELIMINATE THE TROLL. TO REPEAT... DO NOT
RESPOND TO TROLLS. DOING SO IS CALLED FEEDING THE TROLLS... AND WORSENS THE PROBLEM.
