Another characteristic of these trolls is that they are uniformly humorless bores. They don't discuss any other subjects that most normal people would touch on in the course of everyday conversation. Such things tend to work to develop some common ground that can then make the areas of disagreement more palatable. If you share a love of certain foods, vacation locales, pets, adult beverages, team sports, music, film, etc, a policy disagreement should not by itself be able to derail a friendship built slowly and well over time. One trick ponies to not possess any of that. - BG
