There's nothing inherently wrong with trolling. It's an expression of a particular viewpoint -- however irreverent or wrong or correct -- and if you can't handle seeing someone express their opinion (even if you don't agree with it), you shouldn't be online. This domain doesn't belong exclusively to you -- or to people that you agree with. If you don't want to feed trolls, ignore them.
