Facebook face-off

Advice for dealing with a social media troll. Plus, discussing a friend’s mortality.

> A Facebook friend often replies to my posts or comments in a snarky, even hateful way. I am not the only one who has noticed this, and it is getting on my nerves. Do I continue to ignore it? Do I “unfriend’’ her? Or should I report it to her employer — also my former employer, with whom I am on good terms — since most of her mean remarks are posted during work hours on her company’s computer? I have not seen her face to face in awhile and am avoiding it because of her snide remarks.
