Defense against Cyber Trolls

A troll's main objective is to intentionally lure a victim into a pointless or annoying discussion by responding to rude questions or statements. The troll amuses himself while the unsuspecting victim is emotionally riled up.
The anonymous quote “Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience” represents the soundest advice when dealing with an Internet Troll.
Remain calm and civil; if you lose your temper, the troll wins.  The troll may alert other trolls to join together to harass the victims. Assume the perpetrator is having a bad day and respond as such. A few good words cost nothing but are priceless.

If this does not work then ignore or better still block the person and if the comments cross the line of civility then report it to the police.

In short, Be Nice, Ignore, Block and Report when tackling a troll
