For reference, the kinds of things the person being referred to said include multiple racist/homophobic/all-around bigoted statements, including slurs and denigration of certain religions.
Knowing that agreeing with trolling posts on the forum itself is also considered trolling, I'm inclined to believe that agreeing with such inflammatory statements that would definitely be trolling had they been said here is the same thing in principle.

If it had been someone who posted those vile things on our forums, absolutely, or even if Illegal Planets had quoted the posts and said that. I'll call in and see if someone else on the Team would like to opine. They should be awake by now.

I just don’t think posting ones opinion online, however vile or offensive it may be, is wrong.

I agree with Farn that I am not seeing anything actionable with that singular post even with what it is referencing.
