He has just blamed us for any inevitable means needed to follow through with his desires.

No loss if he gets lost.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if he was on Mom's buddy list. Drinking Beverage

Girlyman.

I'm pretty sure he's referring to Girlyman.

No way :barf:*

RE: Trolls
If an ignorant troll pisses you off, put 'em on ignore. Ah, for the good old days of usenet. Not only could you set up a kill file, but some software allowed you to kill file replies to said troll.

RE: Trolls
I agree with the point Chas raises. People who engage in puerile and persistent trollish behaviour should definitely—at the very least—wear a temporary ban IMHO.

Apart from being an irritant—like a nighttime mozzie in your bedroom—their bullshit adds page after page of worthless drivel to threads they "attack". I sometimes come back after a day away, and find another 25 pages added to a thread, with most of the comments either from the troll, and/or people telling them to fuck off. But seldom addressing the topic itself.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

RE: Trolls
Unfortunately the trolls get a disproportionate amount of attention. If they were mostly ignored, I'm sure they'd get bored and leave.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

True, but some folks love to play with them. I put those people in the prototroll bucket.

One thing to remember about trolls and the like, nobody can piss you off unless you give them permission to do so.

Yeah I've seen the tendency of people to just shit on a thread if things don't go their way. With name calling and inane comments that derail the entire thing.
They aren't Troll's really. But it does cause things to spiral into a debate about what people said rather than the topic. And often the thread ends up locked.

I never felt the compulsion to look at Bretbart anyway. Other than to debunk one of their stories if someone reports them as true.
