Subject: Insulting Joham Lauwers and others


Look here, people. The original post insulting Johan and the follow-up below insulting Justin is a typical example of trolling (=provoking and insulting active members of a newsgroup in order to see how many furious responses the insulter can collect). It is all about collecting responses and being able to say: "Hey! look at that! With one post I got 124 responses! I am one cool guy!" My suggestion: Ignore the guy. I mean look at the address. He calls himself "Yourabozo". In case like this every public response is a response too many. The best answer is not to react, but perhaps a short message of support (via e-mail) to the insulted member of our newsgroup may help. Don't react to the bozo-guy. Let's hope the guy moves on and insults someone different. I'll probably get flamed for this mail by him now. Oh well, I'll just polish up my trusty old flamethrower and meet him on private ground (i.e. by e-mail). See ya!
