A reddit user kept spreading lies about raddle (and me). Said the site is a honeypot and told people to instead go to his empty reddit sub; where he spent all day posting news stories.

So I took his username on raddle and reposted all his links here everyday for about a month. Meaning he was essentially providing tons of content to make raddle better. Drove him up the wall.

This is a /thread if I've ever seen one. That is pro-level trolling.

vigorously agree with them, then say something even more off-the-wall and stupid.

I've used this tactic on occasion. It's a great way to highlight the absurdity in their line of thinking, by taking it to the logical extremes.

There are many troll-types where I live that think regulating if muslim women can wear hijabs or not is a high priority political issue. So I replied with a "fashion officer" troll, judging and suggesting punishments for their and everyone else's fashion choices, to highlight that essentially their politics boiled down to fashion policing. A few of them got the hint.

Just respond with post-left memes. They will flee in terror.
