I’ve read all about what to do when it happens but nothing really prepares you for that first time. I’m not talking a simple comment, but a barrage of abuse that follows you across the platform from one post to another. The level of hate as this person derides everything you say and then attacks everyone that defends you.

The only course of action is block. You’ve got to put that out of your mind. Not think about what they’re saying. Not see what theyre writing. The only action I found that works is not answering back. Dont play their game.
