The last blog post gave me an unfortunate first experience with Internet trolls. These bizarre creatures roam about trying to disrupt civil discourse by any means possible.
I realize that many fellow bloggers have removed comments from their sites but I prefer to keep them as far more intelligent people than I can constructively add to the thread of discussion.
But I suspect Facebook groups such as Newburyport Commons or the big NNA are ill-equipped to spot them or have the time to weed them out.
They are very annoying like mosquitos buzzing about the head. Unfortunately readers can often be sucked in by their phony persuasion and apparent passion and re-direct the whole conversation into some bizarre off-topic.
Sadly, I will learn how to deal with them as they have no decency, ethics, or morality.
As we all know, mosquitos can inflict a lot of damage!
