Journal KGIII's Journal: Flamebait and Troll 5

You know, I almost always seem to have a flamebait or troll mod in my list of recent modifications. I've been thinking about that, mostly passively, and I don't really mind one bit.

If I wasn't making people unhappy I wouldn't be making people think and it seems that that is my job. I guess it is that some people don't think and that's when I get modded down and that's okay too. Hell, I don't even spend my mod points.

I still have excellent karma and it is usually an up and down thing. I get modded down on posts where I don't agree with the current groupthink here and, well, that's okay. I posit ideas and rather than opt to argue the merits of those ideas they simply continue groupthink and usually it works out that in a day or so I'm modded back to normal.

In short, sorry but your favorite app isn't the best, your open source isn't the best, and your favorite OS is not the best. The best is what works for you and thinking that you can take away other people's right to choose is just plain retarded. FOAD

          I'm not THAT insane. But, really, see the main /. page for the trolling NYT article. I'm being *mostly* nice. Mostly... ;)

          Stupid bastards, I just type faster than your average gibberish spouting morons.

            I am never going to get to say this again on /. I suppose so, well, here you go 'cause I expect you (of all people) will appreciate it...

            "Anyhow, during the mad cow epidemic in the UK, specifically as I only speak English really, I would go to the various chat rooms and pretend to be from the UK. These chat rooms were named things like, "Horse Lovers." (No, not that kind of love.) I'd then rant and rave about the price of horse meat. Yeah, I enjoy being "That Guy" sometimes but not intentionally harmful rea
