To Deadbeat

Filed under: Blog Status — Off Colfax @ 12:58 am

If you’re going to try and troll, could you please not spam the same damn thing over and over and over again? Particularly not in the span of two minutes? And all on Ampersand’s posts?

Yes, I’m talking to you. You see, these days a troll requires originality and careful thought in order to properly carry out their self-assigned duties throughout the blogosphere. These attempts of yours are far from meeting the lowest bar and, instead of being an insightful provoker of debate, tend simply to be a pain in the ass.

Please inquire within the comment section of Eschaton for an accredited course in how to troll.

For trust me when I say this… You really need it.

Have a nice day.

EDIT: The comments in question have been removed, so I killed off the links. However, one has been preserved for the sake of posterity in the comments below.



  1. It has come to my attention that the liberal left have distorted the English language by making up non-sensical phrases to describe things and activities that have been easily defined for hundreds of years. The true meanings of these propagandish phrases are as follows:
    Embrace diversity-love a nigger, spic, wap, chink, or sand nigger
    Empower women-have politicians looking for votes allow the courts to become communistic tools to give women money from fathers getting screwed by the system so they won’t tax the welfare wystem and get handouts with less shame
    gay rights-allow fags and dykes to sodomise and copulate without getting castrated or de-cunt lipped
    domestic violence-what happens when a husband catches his bitch sucking his neighbors dick
    wetland-a worthless swamp that should be used for a garbage dump but liberals want it for “wildlife”
    undocumented alien-a spic in the USA illegally
    politically correct-what the unhappy commentors to this post will attempt to define so readers will think they are “in the know” and “cool”

  2. Someone is pretty determined to make the “liberal left” look really good in comparison.

  3. Deadbeat also posted the same post on “Alas” about a dozen times, although since “Alas” has tighter moderation no one but me ever saw them there.

    Would anyone mind if I deleted all of Deadbeat’s posts on “Creative Destruction,” other than the single one in this thread (which I’ll leave up to give OC’s post some context)?

    Also, I’d like to delete the anti-semite’s posts as well (“Republican Shabbos Goyim”). Would anyone object to that?

  4. As far as Deadbeat is concerned, delete away. Copy/paste trolling is perhaps the lowest of the low, and does absolutely nothing to forward a conversation.

    And after reading Republican Shabbos Goyim… Hell, at least this one has more than two brain cells to rub together. We’ll find a nice troll-bridge to tuck him under. (Just remember, RSG, we get 75% of all revenue created by the troll-bridge.)

    The reason I say that is because CD is where you crosspost to let folks can escape the heavy moderation over there at Alas. If we start moderating here, for any reason other than content-free spamming, that sends us towards that slippery slope that I dare not contemplate. (For one thing, I don’t thik we can take two copies of Alas, A Blog! The karmic breakdown would kill us all.)

  5. My preference would be to delete obvious trolls in comments along with the spam. Further, I would never direct an entire thread to responding to a troll. And if for the purpose of context the troll’s comments are retained, they can be heavily edited.

    I don’t particularly want to go to a generally moderated comments section, but I have no problem with dumping the junk and discouraging its further appearance through a total lack of response (reinforcement).

  6. he’s been spamming RSF, too. I relegated him to the Troll Party thread. He doesn’t like it in there at all.

  7. *****Breaking News!!!***** Giant Fat Man Implicated in Posting Binge

    The world recoiled today when it was revealed that a man of planetismal girth was using online communications in a posting binge of unprecedented duration and pointlessness.

    Early reports indicate the quasi-retarded text strings may be the result of severe isolation, masturbation fatigue, and general malaise due to fatness.

    “His pasty white flab is most likely coated with foul, fish-stinking perspiration,” remarked Dr. Maurice Falain, head of the Obesity wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in Toronto. Pointing to a picture of the tubby typist, Falain was emphatic in his denunciation. “If you look closely here, you can actually see the smells coming from this lardy tool. God, he’s rank, and is really, really fat. I’m sorry, it’s unprofessional of me to speak this way. But I cannot abide this fat, maggot-white fucking loser any longer. Get out.”

  8. I enjoy making fun of hateful people as much as the next guy, but I would rather not see “he’s fat” used as the medium of mockery.
