Joking responses aside, that's an interesting point. While the Trolls always managed to find an 'in' with Chris during the Classic, it's no different to what's happened since. Any sufficiently determined Troll will find that 'in', usually via flattery or otherwise generally playing along with Chris's sorry little delusions. What could be worth considering is that the Internet Lumberjack may have been a good influence on Chris handling Trolls. Barb didn't seem to much care one way or another (which it could also be argued is the best possible way that Chris should have responded to the Trolls), but Bob appeared to have had a deadpan, effective way of dealing with them - that marvellous call where he reduces a JULAAAAY!-ing group of Trolls to embarrassed silence being a prime example. That, maybe, is it. Borb - between them - had the best ways of dealing with Trolls - ignore them entirely, or dismiss them. Just don't let them get to you. With Bob gone and Barb not that far behind, those lessons aren't being reinforced on any level and haven't been for some time now. Chris, frustratingly, does seem to have some capacity to recognise Trolls and discard them - but, as the likes of Jessica Quinn, Jacob Sockness, the Idea Guys and Janke keep on proving, the way to Chris's heart-shattering is through his self-important gullibility.
