Yes, we are responsible for our posts “And when that point becomes futile, we can walk away.” From my experience on forums, I’ve adopted the following guideline:

I express myself once, and if asked to explain or questioned, I’ll answer, and if asked again, I’ll answer again . . . and then stop as I’ve found further posts are futile. (Yes, of course, there are exceptions when I see my posts are unclear or I sense the questioner is sincere and needs a little help.)

Of course, one must give up the need to have the last word :)
Personally, I don't see the need for guidelines. If something interests me, even a troll for that matter, I might respond to it. If it's of no interest, and trolls seldom if ever are, I'll ignore it.
