Troll fodder

Two main pieces (of three) form the Booker column today. One is headed: What we need in 2011 is an opposition. The other bears the title: As we count the cost of the freeze, Government prepares for global warming.

And which one do you think is getting the most comments – and the attention from the trolls? That attention, of course, is a relatively recent phenomenon, where we see a limited number of users appear on the comments, in what is clearly a concerted attempt to hijack the discussion and use it to promote warmist propaganda. Such attempts must be resisted, but fending off the trolls is time consuming and tedious. However, it is part of the battle.
