“Troll” is the new black….

…so it seems.

I notice a lot of use of the word “Troll” on Twitter and Facebook during this General Secretary election campaign.

Just because someone disagrees with you their doing so does not make them a “Troll” by definition.

Have a discussion, encourage discourse and challenge positions but don’t automatically call someone a “Troll” because they dare to question or challenge something that you might say. Continually doing so smacks of a victim mentality and suggests that you’re not at all confident in your stated position.

Play nice.
