You could ignore them instead of flaming them. My delete-thread key gets
regular use. I still need to duplicate GMail's mute-thread function...

I skip: boring topics, known flamewars, and threads I know I'll just be
inclined to flame on.

Do not feed the trolls.

Men are four:
    He who knows and knows that he knows; he is wise, follow him.
    He who knows and knows not that he knows; he is asleep, wake him.
    He who knows not and knows that he knows not; he is ignorant, teach him.
    He who knows not and knows not that he knows not; he is a fool, spurn him!
