Exactly.  That is the crux of my disagreement with "just ignore them."
 Instead, counter with a little good information easily found by
googling blender (analogous to the "good speech to counter bad is more
effective than censorship" philosophy), then stop spending energy on
the subject and get back to blendering!  I.e. once we've made the good
information available, THEN we can ignore the jerk as the exploitive
troll that he is. :-)
