#TheScienceOf Internet Trolls

#TheScienceOf Internet Trolls (video by Scientist Mel)
+Scientist Mel Excellent video and I think it is something perhaps we all need to be reminded of every so often on how to deal with trolls as they will always be around as it is one of the darker sides of the Internet. Some people just seem to prefer to spend more time trying to tear down others for simply for their own personal entertainment and it's pretty sad in my opinion, but I think we can all take to heart some of the advice you gave in your well as these basic guidelines on how to handle trolls that I think is excellent for the GDC to adopt as guidelines on handling trolls on the Internet.

1. Establish a Policy
2. Ignore Them (by far the best advice)
3. Make Light of the Situation
4. Unmask Them
5. Don’t Provide a Platform
6. Use Moderators and Online Tools
7. Create a Unified Community
8. Listen
9. Fight Back With Facts
10. Correct Mistakes

Types of trolls to determine best course of action. If you see certain types of behavior it may help you to determine what type of troll you're dealing with. I think I have ran into every type of these since I have been in YouTube.
