Journal Journal: Kill Trolls Dead 3

Well dear readers I have learned much since my last journal. This person "tps12" and many like him are an organized band of... just huge jerks. They spend a lot of time writing stuff to annoy everyone and disrupt the discussion.
But I've also learned that we can stop them. You can go into search.pl and search users for ways to stop trolling, and I found this. A Troll Blacklist agent, which removes trolls from your view automatically. All you have to do is follow the instructions on the form. I've started using it and it works perfectly, using Slashdot's ingenious Web of Trust. I suggest you use it too. Link to how to do it.

Help me Kill Trolls Dead.

Journal Journal: Where do YOU live?

A guy named "Real World Stuff" has a journal where people who read Slashdot can post where they live. Kind of a neat study in demographics. link.

Journal Journal: Journal huh?

So this is like a public webspace that I have all my own? This is pretty awesome!

I've been trying to figure it out (and where to talk about it) but I have this suspicion as I read Slashdot that some users are just trying to trick people. There's this one guy and I keep reading his comments and thinking "Is he entirely serious"??? and I'm starting to think that the answer might be NO! I think he's just trying to be mean and trick people, and I think there are more like him. This I think is a link to him:

Does anyone else think what I'm thinking? And should the site administrators be alerted to this guy? I wonder what the consequences woudld be if he were caught.

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
