4.) The Troll Slayer: This is the guy who's gotten rid of all the trolls before you. He doesn't get annoyed by trolling, he'll seldom flame you with something that can get moderated, and will occasionally even manage to annoy you if he's just that good. This guy has all the abilities to be a troll, but for some reason took the route of the nerd, and decided to be a board reg. This is what happens when a troll retires and doesn't leave the internet. He becomes this. Don't allow yourself to become this, but also bare in mind this guy can't be trolled, because he either was one, or has all the abilities to be one.

 

Tips on how to deal with him: The troll slayer cannot be gotten rid of by trolling alone. You cannot take him head on no matter how good you are, so back off. No matter how long and how well you troll he'll always be there to post sarcastic and trolling remarks about you. But you're the troll, not him, and this doesn't bother you (his remarks). Keep trolling, and ignore everything he does. You can respond with trolling remarks back at him, but be warned that he doesn't care, and he might think he's winning then. However, if you do by some act of god get him banned (find something he did ban worthy and report it to a mod) then the board morale is done. You can pretty much walk to the finish line now, because this board is finished without its precious troll slayer. In general though, the troll slayer should be avoided. The other users will get annoyed if you just ignore him and go about your business.

 

Difficulty: 9/10

Now here is an instance of the troll slayer. This is the mother fucker you don't want to get involved with. If it wasn't for its lack of having a life, this little creature could become a troll. You normally don't want to engage with this guy, but heres a way to handle it if you do. In the below post, the troll slayer will use both his alternate, and main accounts. This is a common thing, and you can't really stop it unless you can prove they are the same person.

How to handle this? Well, since he's making shit up, you'll want to do the same thing. Perhaps the only way to attack the troll slayer, is by twisting up the facts. However, this isn't likely to effect him/it. You'll generally want to stay away, as any efforts to stop him will simply result in more alternate accounts posting in his defense, or more genuine trolling from him in general. Yes, thats right, troll slayers will troll trolls to get them off there board. This shouldn't effect you, but still. Actually, its funny, because every once in a while a troll slayer is actually a part time troll under an alt. Heck, some trolls are only part time trolls and don't even realize it. I digress however...
