How do you tolerate the worst posters on GaG?

I've noticed recently there are a few posters who are worse than useless. I don't mean bad advice, I mean either insulting people, trolling (insulting) the asker or just mocking someone for asking a question (which is kinda the point of this site).

I'm sure it's always been like this but recently I've dealt with a few more than usual. It really puts me off posting here. How do you put up with them?

  • You just have to ignore them. You could also block them if you want and report the insulting/antagonistic comments.

  • I just have to live with myself everyday. It's a constant struggle.

    Anyway, let's just say that I am way more tolerant than I thought I was.

  • Yeah, some of them are terrible. You can report users for trolling and their comments. Users like that, I check up and remove any inappropriate comments that violate the terms. If they're really bad, I'll block them, but that's rare.

  • Just ignore them.
    If it gets out of hand for you and you just don't want to see their stupid posts or whatever, just block :)
    but I do agree with you. Some people here are a little annoying ;)

    • Thanks. :)

      I don't know why I let it bother me. I need a thicker skin.

    • No I understand, sometimes these people tend to annoy me too ;) especially the ons who insult or mock others. Trolls can be funny x)

  • Omg.. I just realized I might be one of them.

    • Let's test it. If you are able to respond to this without insulting anyone, especially me, then you're ok.

    • You will get there ;)

    • Thanks. That's the plan. :)

  • I report the ones who are constantly trolling or leaving unhelpful answers. I just try to ignore the ones I don't like very much.

  • Just ignore them and scroll past, or block them and opt not to see blocked user activity.

    • If you ask an anon question, is the blocked users activity still ignored or does it come up?

  • Block them, or report if they're really out of hand. Not much more you can do, the Internet is breeding grounds for trolls and keyboard thugs.

    If something bothers you here so bad that you had to make this question, it's time to reflect on your life.

    • That's true. I've noticed they get banned fairly quickly.

      Sometimes I wonder if it's the one guy. Lol

    • No they're many. You should report them too :)

  • Just ignore them and continue on using the website.

    If these people are REALLY getting to bother you, you can always block them so their activity is hidden and are unable to post on your activity.

    • This is a slightly different question but you might be able to help, have you any tips on developing a thicker skin? Or am I just over thinking this? Lol

    • The key to getting "thicker skin", is to understand that not everybody is going to like you, the things you do, and the things you say.

      It is impossible to simultaneously be your authentic self, and please everyone.

      The sooner u embrace this fact, the less you'll care about disapproval from others. 8-)

  • Grow a thick skin, stop caring what weirdos on the internet you'll never meet think of you.

    • So does that mean I should ignore you? :p

    • If you can't handle the truth, of course ;)

    • Nah, I know you're right. I do need to develop a thicker skin. I knew that before.

      I'm surprised though that an xper 9 would just write off their opinions like that. Getting the opinions of weirdos online is what this site does.

  • By simply ignoring them. Just because someone shoots off an opinion doesn't mean I either have to respond or even acknowledge them. People only take up as much space in your head as you allow them to.

    I will occasionally report something, although that's rare--it has to be really out of line (like posting pornographic imagery) for me to do it. I have never blocked anyone, don't feel the need to.

    I have been blocked by people who couldn't accept differing opinions--typically, they tend to hold extreme views, such as by women believing that the number of men in the human population should be reduced to 10%, or by men who believe that women are by nature evil and manipulative and that they should be oppressed for the safety of society. Typically, I don't even engage those sorts, as it's a waste of time and energy.

    • I know. Still it bothers me for some reason.

  • i just ignore them. But when it comes to this place, context matters quite a bit. Some people deserve a bit of a verbal lashing, and some don't. All depends on what happened
