Trolls/Flamers commenting on my cover... How should I respond?

Post by ciluryn on Mon May 27, 2013 4:33 am

I've been doing covers for quite a while, and I've never really had much of a problem with people trolling/flaming my videos.
However, I just got 3 consecutive people insulting me in the same video within a space of 15 minutes...
Idk if they're working together or not, but I'm not sure how to respond... or whether it's worth responding... Should I delete the comments? But then that feels like I'm losing to them lol
I've seen this kind of thing happen to other people's videos, but they usually don't need to personally deal with it because they have other viewers who defend them anyway. However, my video isn't popular enough for something like that to solve the issue... so what should I do... ?

Thanks for the help :D

This is the video btw: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwJlJTWm1tQ

Hi!
I've gotten a troll like that too, and the best thing you can do is to remove the comment and block the user. Their objective is to make you feel angry or depressed, so if you go responding to them, you'll just play right in their bags. I'm not sure if your consecutive trollers/flamers are linked, but I did see some things in common between them when I looked through their channels, so I suggest you just go ahead and block the whole lot of them.

I agree with deleting them and simply blocking them. I highly doubt people like those (Just look at their usernames) have any interest in doing anything but troll on covers and unless they subscribed for whatever reason, they may not even end up finding your videos again.
