[jargon] please add "don't feed the troll"
With the current discussion about trolling on debian-project
i tried 'dict troll' to find what it was about.
'troll' is well described in jargon,
but it contains a note about "don't feed the troll" that
mentions that it exists, but not what it is.
Adam McKenna posted a contribution in which this concept is defined :
The trolls are only half of the problem with Debian lists.
The other half of the problem is that
many people can't restrain themselves from
replying to comments
that are arguably trollish
with an equivalent amount of vitriol
(also known as 'feeding the troll').
Could you please add this definition to jargon ?
I am CCing debian-project in case someone disagrees with this definition,
in which case they can attach their opinion to this bug in the BTS.
have fun !
