If they're trolling, getting ignored will likely eat them alive. Or maybe that's just me being tired of trolls and looking for ways to mess with them without actually doing anything...
you obviously don't go to any political forums...
To be honest, at best, I've seen VERY FEW trolls or financial hawkers (trying to pump up sales for a invested product) ..
For the sake of discussion I'll state what I'd call the best way to "confront" something you consider err.. shady..
First isn't to challenge the others "proof" BUT to show them your proof.
Nobody starts out with YOU have to show me..... but I'll show you....
As an example saying like .. "Well this is what I do and this is the results. "I can't see what you are saying is viable."
There no confrontation and a baseline is established.
Personally.. that's the softest way to do it..
Any other way you are assuming yours is the only way..and demand others to defend their "stuff"..
Personally the proof is more on the "other side" than anything..at least as a diplomatic method.
In science if someone publishes a peer reviewed paper that goes against another findings one usually starts by presenting their data and asking why it seem contrary to the "new guys"..
Or that's the way it should be.
This will open a dialoged w/out one or the other party starting out on a completely defensive mode..
Doesn't always go that way.. but that's ego for you.
Just the way I see it..seems as backwards to some I suppose
Very few "concepts" are embedded in stone and need to be modified/adapted to the infinite variable of each.
Take BBA for example.
2 CONTRARY schools of though permeate it.
1) Blackout periods ect
Both will probably fail for some individuals..
As my personal opinion the Feed to kill and clean to kill def. holds more promise both in practice and theoretical.
I wouldn't tell people NOT to do a blackout..
Manners start at you..
