How do you deal with anonymous trolls on your blog's comments section?
There are a few ways to deal with it. First, you could ignore then. Second, you could call them on their BS and get them going. I go back and forth between which is best. Generally speaking, someone who criticizes you under the cover of anonymity is a coward. There is no way around that. The internet makes it easy to say nasty things and run away, BUT it does not shield the commenter from libel laws if the statement is deemed libelous. Most anonymous commenters don't know this. My best advice is: don't let it bother you, and the more you get slammed the better the job you are doing. "Haters are going to hate," as the saying goes.
