Bait implies manipulation. But if you know what they're doing and choose to respond, that's not taking the bait. That's choosing to not ignore their BS and to look them in the eye without flinching. Do that, and they devolve into babbling brooks of rage and bitterness, name calling, gaslighting and one word responses. They know you're on to them and you won't fall for their propaganda.

Turn their machinations right back at them. Then laugh at them.

What are some of those clever ways? I'd love suggestions!
