A lot depends on what you consider the goal of comments to be.

If you're a serious person and look to comments to learn and become informed, you'll agree with the author and align against intentional and unintentional trolling.

If you're a more light-hearted sort who looks to comments for entertainment, you won't much be concerned about trolling.
