An Etsy forum post about WHAT TO DO when there is a Troll/Flame War/Calling Out in the Etsy Forums, courtesy of stellaloella.
There are also some other wonderful tips in this thread. One of my favorites come from schOOLLOcker:
If you go into a thread & you TRULY want it to die...you LEAVE!
Do not reply.
Do not post to make a troll reference.
Do not contribute to the thread to make a *joke*.
Hit the back button.
Go buy something.
Of course, "go buy something" is probably my favorite option! =^.^=
