Chile: Dealing with Trolls

Regarding those vexing agents of the internet underworld, Roberto Arancibia writes in “What to do with the trolls?” (ES): “This is my blog. My world. My space. My house. And I write what I want, when I want, and how I want. If someone, sometime, finds a word or two here that serves them, then OK. If they don't like it, there are more than 50 million blogs on the planet. If I want to have a blog with “red lettering” then I do it with a click. If I want to erase my entire blog, I do it with a click. And if I want to erase comments from trolls, I do it with a click. It's that plain and simple.”
