Chacham's Journal: Troll: five things that affect the quality of /. comments 3

Journal by Chacham

Well, another day, another troll, but this was pathetic attempt. On the heels of an erstwhile success, i decided to try again.

I saw in the Myterious (say it like Xellos would) Future the story How To Choose Archival CD/DVD Media, and it had the comment "Unlike pressed CDs/DVDs, 'burnt' CDs/DVDs can eventually 'fade,' due to five things that affect the quality of CD media:". Perfect! "burnt", "five things", "fade" it was begging to be trolled. It was just a matter of writing it before it went live live.

So, i opened notepad, wrote this and that, until i realized that it wasn't going to work. Although i had a basic idea of what to write, the details didn't come in, and i wasn't spending enough time (or concentration) on it. So, i quickly hacked it together, waiting for it to die, and posted it here.

I can't believe it. I got first post. Within a minute or so, at least two others appeared, and i was modded down as troll. Heh. I posted at +1, so i figured it was DoA.

Anyway, i checked my messages just now, and got my mod report. There are two comments (too low for me to read at +1) but sixteen moderations. I think that's a record for me, and it doens't look like it's over yet.

Anyway, here's the report:
