Simply moving on is not an option for the haters once youâ€™ve been labeled a Koolaid server and/or a rich source of lulz. Ignore them, and the trolls cry harder, scream louder, and become destructive.
If youâ€™ve already hit the Koolaid Piont, you usually have just three choices:
- leave (They Win)
ignore them (they escalate, make your life more miserable, DDoS, ruin your career, etc. i.e. They Win)
fight back (If youâ€™ve already hit the Koolaid Point, see option #2. They Win).

I have no words. I didn’t get halfway through before I felt sick and angry. Please, please, please read this. Of course, this is Trigger Warning out the wazoo, but worth powering through.
Kathy Sierra is a hero.
