Shut your ears when you can and focus on what you wish to take from this
group, not everything that comes up as a thread. If the interruptive visits
by trolls bother you, just hit ignore as soon as they emerge. In a world
where Linux is unknown to most, don't expect to have pleasant conversations
about it. But when somebody brings such a topic, learn to steer away,
albeit it can be hard sometimes.
