On Concern Trolling

(Pasting this blurb I wrote from a discussion on environmentalist movements - it is more broadly relevant)

I generally worry that the "Guard against concern trolling" meme ends up cutting out moderates and killing discourse with the unconvinced. There probably are real concern trolls, but if they're indistinguishable from others, does this put us at risk of a "you're either with us or against us" mentality? I've been part of (and left) too many activist movements that had issues with that.
