I do think the troll count has gone up, we're just drawing a slightly more sophisticated bunch of them. When some creep tries to get under your skin, just realize it's a troll and that if you continue to feed a troll, you get covered with troll shit. Look at the post as potential troll shit and move on. The worst thing you can do to a troll is ignore him.

I'm watching a repeat of the 2008 Hillary War gear up again. I'm hoping they start to divert all the Hillary posts to her group soon and lock them in GD. That will increase the level of the repartee right there.
