Journal Journal: Trolls, nerds and weirdos

Now, anyone posting to /. must be one of the above. A troll, nerd and/or a weirdo. Most of us hit all three categories, sometimes all at the same time.

How lovely is it to blow off some steam on some moronic comment or story? You, yes you, are a troll. Try to keep it civil and preferably funny, then you may get away with it.

If you understand the stories or know additional background details then you must a nerd. Welcome to the club, please share your knowledge with the other nerds.

If you visit /. then you are a weirdo by default.
