Trolls have made the internet a no-go area for some people, especially social networking sites in which people have started to avoid joining in on the conversation just due to the fear involved in being insulted and embarrassed in front of a group of unknown users.
Trolls might not actually realise it, but they have made public forums and discussion areas much less popular than they could actually be. It is common nowadays on the internet that if 100,000 people view a certain page, only 0.002% of those people actually participate in any actual conversation about it. The statistics were much higher before, but ever since trolls have started popping up everywhere, people are less comfortable in sharing their thoughts with others now.
1. Develop Software
Software which could block such comments from being posted should be used on websites where the common public can openly discuss. It would be much easier for other users if such software would be incorporated in the websites themselves. This step would cause immediate building in trust of the people and slowly giving them a feeling of welcoming into the virtual world.
There are moderators in every forum, but they are still not enough to block the trolling onslaught these trolls attack with. The most common users of a forum should also be made into moderators to regulate conversations between the people, thus, less trolling almost immediately.
When common people will be given the arms to fight against trollers, these trollers do not stand a chance against them. It is only the will to survive that gives people a reason to fight, and attacking trollers is probably one of the most fun things to do when it really gets personal.
3. Apply Memberships
When people would have to pay a minimum monthly fee let’s say only as a refundable security as long as trolling is not done, than trollers would be cleared away like a tsunami clears a town. Trollers usually drop by any blog and forum, create an ID within seconds and start trolling away. If money would be needed (again full refundable), than these trolls would not dare come this way.
