There’s an old saying among frequent users of the Internet: “Don’t feed the trolls”. By this is meant, don’t respond to people who deliberately make controversial or misleading statements (as doing so just gives them the attention or business that they crave and don’t deserve).

About once a quarter or so, Jay decides to publish some pretty scary and confusing things about captive insurance companies—things which seem designed to steer business away from his competitors and toward his own firm or favored third parties. Anyone knowing what I know, which includes an ever-increasing percentage of the captive insurance industry, easily sees through Jay’s charade. But, the problem is…the general public doesn’t usually know what I know, and so they are susceptible to being misled.
