If the troll being taunted here is referring to me, I suggest 
you review my posts in this thread,  You've said in the past 
that you don't read posts from Google Groups (that's fine, 
your choice) so perhaps you do not have a clear idea what I 
have written.

One of the most effective ways for a community to discredit 
itself is to make accusations of trolling in response to 
unpopular but legitimate and reasonable opinion.
