You want so badly to smite the trolls. Probably dont worry too much how guilty they are as long as you are smiting away. "Gota rope, just lookin for someone to hang."

I see that your bravado has made you some fans. Authoritarians love that rough, tough talk.

Why dont you discuss issue here and not worry so much about the trolls. Trolls have a tendency to get themselves in trouble without much fuss. And we all recognize trolls.
