Now, you see folks, this is why we, collectively, need to not feed the troll. DO NOT POST COMMENTS DIRECTLY TO THE TROLL’S INITIAL POST. THAT WILL MAKE THE TROLL THE “FEATURED COMMENT” TO ANYONE WHO CLICKS ON THIS COMIC. Post your replies as an entirely new comment. You can specify to whom you are replying with your comment by starting it with “@Igor of St. Petersburg.”
What you can do NOW to rectify the situation is go to your own reply comment, select all the text, and copy it with your word processing tool. Then DELETE your reply comment using the little red barrel that appears at the top right of your comment box. Come back here, click into a [new comment] box and paste the text you just copied. Put “@Igor of St. Petersburg” at the beginning of your [new comment]. Now you have deprived the troll of one reply. If enough people will do this, Igor can be replaced as FEATURE COMMENT.
