Don’t be a Troll

Marketing guru Seth Godin just posted a slice of wisdom about “trolls,” the sort of person who visits and comments on blogs – but only has interest in tearing down the author and/or his work. Good advice to anyone who’s blogging.

My philosophy on commenting is that I try to be civil, even if the writer seems totally off their rocker. At bare minimum, you can end a comment with: “Thank you for providing this forum for ideas to be discussed freely.” Because increasingly blogs are not allowing comments (including Seth Godin’s) due to the lack of civility among trolls.
