"Sigh. You see, this is why I downvote willful misinterpretations of other people's comments, aka strawmen. Because it forces the people who are attempting to argue in good faith to waste time restating their arguments in the vain hope that the other person merely misunderstood."

Although I am sympathetic to this, the fact is, you're not forced. Don't respond. Ignore it utterly. That's what is meant by not feeding trolls. When some simpleton produces BS or monkey screechings, do not respond to it - not in any way, even if it makes you want to scream and pound furniture. You're not required to - this isn't a formal debate, you don't need to demolish silly or ridiculous positions. Let them be, twisting in the wind.

Let trolls draw whatever "conclusions" they like. They are not participating in the actual discussion, nor will they ever take part in the collective action that we as RTH users are hoping to engage. They can go and pound sand. They make absolutely no difference.

(Of course, someone always does respond to them. Don't let it be you!)
