The Apple Fanboy List is back!!!
Hello fellow slashdotters!
Are you constantly bombarded with pro-Apple comments by Apple fanboys? Does your blood boil when you see an "APPLE IS SO GREAT AND THEY MAKE THE GREATEST STUFF WOO HOO!!!1!!1!!" rated +5 Informative? Are you sick of reading Slashdot comments at a high threshold, drowning in a sea of pro-Apple gibberish?
If you said "YES!" to any of the above questions then the Apple Fanboy List is for you! I've done all the work by compiling a list of fanboys as my foes. All you have to do is add me as your friend and then set your comment preferences to -6 for all foes of friends! Then all the Apple Fanboys on the list will be -1 automatically!
- Fortknox - Beloved by many, Josh Marotti recently announced that he is in fact a troll. Needless to say, he has been eliminated.
- Zeinfeld - Eliminated for trolling.
- Dancin_Santa - A long overdue death for a known abuser.
- Jack Wagner A new troll account, swiftly demolished for wanton abuse of posting privs.
I'd like to thank the intensely stupid collection of idiots who attack Slashdot for documenting their abuses - it makes my job a whole lot easier. Way to go, idiots!
I'd like to thank my loyal userbase for all the encouraging (and instructive) email, and I pledge to continue making Slashdot readable into the new millenium. Remember, spread the word:

I was looking at your list and am about to sign up. But, I saw a friend-of-a-friend
on the list, and thought it might not be such a great idea.
The "troll" is tps12. If you look at his postings, he's posted funny, insightful
comments. Recently, he had one rated "troll" (which I disagreed with.)
He also has some rated "flamebait", some of which are rather witty cutting
Here's his link:
Note: I have no particular attachment to this guy (or knowledge of him)
other than he is a friend-of-a-friend, and I respect my friend's opinions.
John, thanks for your input. Sadly, you have been tricked by a very nasty person. Tps12's positive comments are what we call "karma whoring", i.e. an attempt to gain and maintain the +1 posting bonus in order to leverage more effective Troll posts by exposing his Troll posts to a larger audience. The saddest thing about trolls who "karma whore" like Tps12 is that many could have been constructive members of society. Consider this misinformation post in which tps12 willfully posts false information, thereby ruining a Linux story for hundreds of Gentoo users, many of whom wasted their time refuting him.
Tps12 is even "famous" as trolls go, making regular appearances in their little hidey holes. We've caught him, we've nailed him to the ground, and he won't ruin any more discussions.
Please continue to keep the feedback coming. Together, we can stop the few Slashdot trolls who ruin the experience for everybody.
Please email me the names of trolls to destroy, and let your friends know about Troll Blacklist. You don't have to put up with crap to read Slashdot.
