That is 100% troll feeding. Any form of attention is what they seek. What you said as your tactic is basically the Cirno perspective where you think you're outsmarting them but in reality they brought you to their level where they can crush you (i.e. falling into the "advanced beginner" trap). It's relatively easy to follow up with a "low IQ post" because from the troll point of view it makes you mad which is what they want for their entertainment.
Your method might work better on IRC if you have the ability to filibuster and just outlast them but that tactic does not translate well to forum / comment type systems.
