Vegan (alt.food.vegan) This newsgroup exists to share ideas and issues of concern among vegans. We are always happy to share our recipes- perhaps especially with omnivores who are simply curious- or even better, accomodating a vegan guest for a meal!

Default Case in point.

A Yahoo group I belong to has long been plagued by a troll. People are
always posting about what horrible thing she's done now and how we
really ought to do something to get rid of her. She eats this up.
Last year she started taunting people through IMs. There were numerous
posts on the list about the horrible things she's done through IMs and
how she just won't leave people alone.

She IMd me a few months ago. I ignored her. After only three tries,
she went away and I haven't heard from her since.

Smart move. I used to visit a web board with a similar troll. Omnivore,
woman, seemed addicted to the internet and arguing.

I am ashamed to say that she pulled me a few times down to her level.

I finally had enough and left the board( web boards need usenet strength
kill files ).

I feel much more at peace, I get better stuff done with my time, and it
is like she never existed.

Cheers
