There is no "have to" here. You can just stroll by and not involve yourself. If you feel that the OP is acting irresponsibly, you can have less stress by not dealing with their posts.
Why do you presume that dealing with their posts is stressful? I call it amusement.
And silence gives an implied consent that troll questions are OK.

If you want to turn this sub-forum into sci.math, I feel sorry for you. A failure to
perform even a little diligence will turn this forum into sci.math. Cranks, trolls,
and people unwilling to learn should go somewhere else. Questions posed
by people who are unwilling to put in an effort should be discouraged.

Yes, this is my opinion.
