Dan, you got the troll all hot and bothered, and he HATES that.
As far as the LW...his mother is not going to stop her ugly behavior unless he makes her stop. That means there must be consequences each and every time she is abusive. She clearly doesn't learn or have a conscience like normal people. People like her take silence and passivity as permission to continue with their cruel nonsense (or justify it). I think threatening to withhold contact with the grandchild (mentioned above) is a valuable tactic.
