Not "respond in kind", that's for sure.
My own recommended list of actions, in order, approximately:
- Ignore. (This includes responding to the factual contact as factual
content and ignoring the emotional tone.)
- Call the poster on it. (Politely - this doesn't mean "retaliation".)
- Write to Jay.
- Mechanically ignore (killfile, procmail to /dev/null, etc).
Of course, this is a baseline, meant to be applied with "common sense",
not as an inflexible algorithm, and is only an approximation anyway.
