Don't feed the trolls
A phrase often used on webforums and LiveJournal communities by moderators and those who think they're moderators. This is generally in response to someone "trolling" their community, which usually means "having an opinion different than one or more of the established members". It is however also used as a meme, by people who are too lazy to read the thread, automatically assume that it is a troll callout, and want to look mature.
In other words, "pretend they don't exist so we can continue to act as though our opinions are unrefuted fact". This is often accompanied by an image macro to illustrate to the would-be "troll" that they have just been pwned. Even though Secunda completely pwned Prima on that one. Caution: Even though people will tell you not to feed the trolls, this does not mean you cannot feed the lols.
