Just a pipe dream, but.... If you could get a patent on the business methods of the patent trolls, ( buy lots of junk patents, wait for viable businesses to develop, threaten to sue and extort money from those businesses. ...and so on)
Could you then have them cease their preying; or would you
simply extort money from the trolls and give it back ?
later Edit: See link IBM And Haliburton seem to be trying to bake this. So Marked fo DEletion in July 2015 or so.

||You forgot "make broad sweeping statements that have little or nothing to do with the actual patent..." and "patent the bleedin' obvious".
||There's my part of the patent.
||Next up: patents on murder, arson, rape, spitting on sidewalk. But first a patent on advertising. Stay tuned.
||I think a large company actually tried this last time trolls were in the news.
||[popbottle], can I draw your attention to my granted
patent describing a method of extorting money from
people who extort money from people by patent
