I think you're wrong to blame an anti troll article for bringing trolling upon it's self. I don't see anything wrong with discussing trolls and trollish behaviour. I don't think it's fair to blame someone for talking about trolls for trollish behaviour. However, I think within Say What's post, there is something worth considering.

I'm not saying this to provoke anyone or in a trollish manner. I'm saying it because I feel it will help to improve RTH. I know that when I was labeled a troll and was being treated, in my opinion, unfairly, it was very frustrating and very easy to react in a negative manner.

Once someone is labled a troll, concluded to be a troll, and treated as such, it is very hard for that person to be taken seriously. It seems not to matter what they say, people just dismiss it as trollish behaviour.

For that reason, I encourage everyone on RTH to give everyone a chance at first before definitively concluding whether or not someone is a troll. If you do decide to label someone as a troll, consider why you are doing it, and what good (is there any?) comes of it.
