What do chat-rooms do about trolls?

Experienced users feel we oughtn’t feed the trolls, but sometimes, really, they go too far.  This is one of many “Obvious Troll” responses for minimal involvement without acceptance.

used in forum as response to heavy nasty responses to posts

However, I stand by my more detailed position in Reflection on “The world is an internet forum.” :  sometimes a more detailed and courteous response is needed, particularly if the apparent troll may feel ve is protecting a victim of bullying.
