  • Ah ... the smell of burning stupidity ... :-)

    And I think they fixed the "need extra line at the bottom" because I saw your question.

      It's been fixed for a while now.

      As to the topic, I didn't even have to click the link to know that the commenter in question is a moron. First, he links Bing (no, I'm not clicking a Bing link; I do not want to help MS make more money), and second, he doesn't know how to use an apostrophe; or more importantly, when NOT to use one, why do people think "array's" is correct? Where do people get those stupid ideas? When I see that it assures me that the commenter is poorly educated, hasn't read many books, and t

  • Who the hell is Michael Kristopeit supposed to be? I've never heard of him and the first return of a google search for him returns his slashdot uid.

      All of them?

        Once I looked at the conversation that was linked to in this JE, I noticed that account exists up to (name)(599) or so. Interesting that they pretty much all seem to post at (-1) here. Apparently either someone who really doesn't have anything better to do, or some sort of strange meme I hadn't encountered here before that is really running wild.

        My question though, is who on earth is this person (or who are they supposed to be)? Are we supposed to recognize this name for anything important?

        • Back when MK first started popping up here with his multiple, quickly burned out IDs, I did a little googling. As such, I'm fairly certain of two things:

          One, there is a real Michael K out there, and he works in an IT-related field.

          Two, I'm almost 100% certain that our resident MK is not the real Mr. Kristopeit, but has, at some point been pissed off by him and has decided to register under that name in as many places as he can and come off as a relentless douchenozzle in order make the real MK look

            Sounds perfectly reasonable for someone registered on slashdot.

            FWIW I have often suspected the same of the AC posts that sign off as "APK". However I have no experience that I recall with a user account called "APK" so there may be a history to it that I am not familiar with.

            • The APK posts are largely legit (except those of us teasing him.) APK has been around for a long, long, time on many, many, boards, and this is his style. He's become pretty infamous, making baseless threats to sue anti-Malware companies (for example), and would be more than aware of it if there was a campaign to discredit him, but has been posting like this for more than a decade.

                However, the APK style is distinct enough to be trivially easy to copy. I'm not saying the real APK is sane or anything, but rather that I suspect there may be some people who are making AC posts in the style of APK just because he's a fun target.

                and would be more than aware of it if there was a campaign to discredit him

                From what I've seen - and I'm sure I've seen but only a very, very, small fraction of it - I don't think a campaign would be needed. APK seems to have discredited himself just fine on his own.

    • As I understand it, he'll be Mitt Romney's next rival as soon as Santorum goes the way of the others. APK will follow Kristopeit.
  • After getting hit by a bunch of troll mods yesterday in an unrelated thread after getting pissed at all the "I DON'T WANT TO LIVE NEXT TO BLACKS" posts, I figured what the hell and I might possibly have made three posts in the AFK vs MichaelKristopeit330 thread.

    Hey, if you can't vent your frustration on Slashdot, what can you do?
