Responding to the apk trolls out there in public only encourages their bad behavior, and it could conceivably force a policy change of comment deletions and elimination of anonymous posting if it becomes too obnoxious to other readers. This would be the proverbial 'bad thing' and might be what they are after. Unlike most sites, Slashdot has a fairly decent crop of ACs that contribute much to the discussion. I wouldn't want to see that disappear
I keep open journals to avoid cluttering up the public forum with this kind of garbage.. If they are ignored, they will wither and die off, or at the very least, make it easier for the admins to properly deal with them as only they know how. They are very easy to tune out. I respectfully ask that you do so, and let nature work its course.
Personally, I just fart in their general direction. They never have said anything worth taking seriously, So consider my JE as the kiddie table where they belong, and feel free to throw your food at them in there
