Trolls are an annoying little problem here on MA, but have you ever stopped to think why here so much more than on my Knitting and bowling forums? Well I know why, Its because here on MA each of us are passionate about what we are doing with mopeds. We don't just like mopeds, or commute on mopeds, we LOVE mopeds. It is hard to deal with the random non-sense of a troll and even harder to deal with the mockery you feel that troll is making of your beloved life style, However it is Important to just let it go. You cannot reason with them you cannot win an argument with them and you will never talk them into leaving.
That said you know what you have to do, You have been told a thousand times, but someone always blows it, but you know, for a fact that the only way to rid your self of a troll is to simply not reply, just go on about your post as if the troll never typed a thing, and sure enough, with no effort you will have won the battle, not in one foul swoop but by methodically taking away the very reason the troll was here in the first place.
So take it in your hands and save the General Forum, It needs help and the people who use it are the only ones that can fix it.
That is all
