Troll appreciation thread

This guy's shtick is so boring. I don't mind a good troll, but at least have some talent. Nothing more boring than a loud, no-talent troll.

I mean, if he was spouting nonsense, like the don king troll and not being hateful, I would enjoy it big time.

But this is just...

Actually looks like this one fits the "Bustr troll" description from your link:
"The Bustr. Bustrs are obsessive Bitters by whom you could practically set your watch. A Bustr never forgets, never forgives, and holds a grudge until the day it dies. Also a variant of Agenda trolls, Bustrs typically move from forum to forum complaining about the objects of their ire, often cutting and pasting age-old diatribes that have little meaning to most of their audiences. Most Bustrs are relatively incoherent, though a few of the more lucid ones are potentially dangerous stalkers."

I was surprised not to see the type of trolling that I do described on that page, as it was otherwise quite comprehensive. I like to troll with a bit of humor - most trolls are too serious.

Yeah, I meant, I prefer trolls who are ridiculous and spout gibberish and nonsense.

Like the Don King troll... would have been a funny one to be.

I meant, if he trolled like Don King, I might have found entertainment...

Although when people spout  gibberish enough, it does make you feel like you lost brain cells... tongue

But nope, he choose to be a kind that is dull, in my opinion anyways.

That was my point, I guess.

Either way, meh...

I have lost interest.

Btw, on an unrelated note, I have emailed you, did your old email die, or have you lost interest in chatting with me. wink

Same one as before, just a heads up.

Really? Ahh, I see you did! Over two weeks ago - I feel bad for not seeing this and responding right away. I'm usually on the lookout for your emails.

I'll try to respond in full tonight. Have a blessed evening brother. Remember, Christ loved you enough to die for you even before you knew his name. He chose you, pursued you, tried to win you over. That's something to always be cheerful about!

Re: Troll appreciation thread

Is there already a 'Troll Appreciation Day'?
Like System Administrator Appreciation Day?
If not, I suggest Feb-29.
Because the rules when this day exists already is like trolling a calendar and its users!  :-Þ

You were really entertaining over there. For about a year I would go check in once a week to see what kind of mayhem you were causing. It was especially funny since you were often the only source of helpful information on the board. Visitors had to have a bit of a thick skin to try to extract their free tech support from you.

Feburary 29th is a leap year, but I don't think feburary 30th exists even...

Then again, that's probably the point... tongue

That being said, I agree with Yeti.

I am curious what Andy meant though by his Head on a stick's mayhem causing on fdn,

I wonder if it was like the time I trolled on a sc2mapster.com like this:

https://www.sc2mapster.com/forums/gener … -is-magic2

This was a long time ago though... tongue

Though, I was somewhat mentally insane then...

meh... it is what it is.

You'd see people wander into the Debian forum and say things like, "I enabled stable and testing and unstable and experimental repos and added a few ppa's and mixed and matched packages from all of them and then ran a few weird commands I found on the Ubuntu forum and now my computer is bricked and I've lost all my data and a million dollar government contract because your distro sucks. Fix me."

And you'd sit back and grab for the popcorn and wait for HOAS to show up and just thrash them with surgical precision. And then fix their problem. And then thrash them some more for good measure. Leave them in a quivering bloody puddle on the floor, whimpering. Deathly afraid of ever touching a keyboard again.

It was good stuff. As I said, it was weekly entertainment for quite awhile.
