    Checked in tonight before going to bed, and now an hour later, still here.
    Good discussions tonight and I feel like I learned a lot.
    This is how the ng should be. (could be if we ignore all the meaningless
    filler!)

    Since I have Voivod blocked I only see what he/she writes when it's
    reposted. I can't seem to believe a MAN would write such petty, catty
    things like this, and Voivod could be male or female name.
    Going by the article you posted the person doing it was autistic (and
    alcoholic) though I don't know why his family, or someone in charge of him
    didn't step in and do something, get him treatment, keep him away from the
    internet, etc. Doesn't seem like going to jail is the answer, he apparently
    needs mental help. Just like the ones who do things like this on the
    newsgroups probably do.
    And, as the father said "to get attention" (in a negative way) Doesn't
    seem like anything a sane, mentally stable person (with any kind of life)
    would spend time doing.
    I wonder how the "trolls" who try and drive people away, off the
    newsgroups would feel if eveyone did leave and stop posting? Would they get
    as much fun writing back and forth to each other? At some point there
    wouldn't be anyone left. Maybe that's the point, to feel so powerful they
    have driven everyone away.

  5. Carrie,

    Its called " Feeding the Troll " from the Aesop Story " The 3 Billy
    Gots gruff " lol
    No you are right, this is a good Newsgroup, and a good side of the
    internet.
    If everyone did leave then he would move on,


    Enough said.


    Regards

    I don't see how UK law applies to someone living in a trailer in
    Florida.

    Voivod yes ..
    Which is what I've done.
    As did I.
    Retroactive abortion for idiots?
    Yeah, now if you could just get me extradited to the UK... or maybe if
    you READ the article and grasped how it has no correlation to what's
    going on here.

    There's also the method of fishing "trolling". The way I understand it, the
    boats (Trollers) go along dragging nets in back and then pull them in to see
    what they have caught. That could be one aspect of it online. Throw out the
    bait and see who takes it?

    I don't see how it applies to someone with mental issues. Seems like it
    would be applied to whoever is in charge of the man, even though he is 25 he
    needs, or should have a keeper.

    Oh, that's probably it. When I was a child we had a big old cabinet radio
    that got short wave, too. I used to hear ship to shore calls and they'd
    refer to them as the "Trawler- whatever the name was". Sounds the same.
    I still think it fits with "trollers" on the internet LOL

    In fishing terms "trawling" & "trolling" are two very different things.

    Trawling, is the drawing of a massive open mouthed net across the ocean
    floor. The mouth of the net is held open by steel plates on either
    side. This method of fishing is extremely damaging to the ocean floor
    and indiscriminate as to what is caught and/or killed. As such it is
    not very enviro-friendly. In the Gulf of Mexico special modifications
    had to be made to the trawl nets to make them turtle safe as that
    population was threatened.

    Trolling for most anglers means trailing a single line and hook baited
    with a lure, or bait, behind a slowly moving boat. This imitates the
    movement of a bait fish through the water. This is without reference to
    the Brothers Grimm, grotesque guardian of the bridge, "Troll".

    In the usenet World "troll" and "trolling" refer to both the grotesque
    character and the method of fishing where the antisocial "troll" fishes
    the usenet waters by "trolling" with bait in the form of a deceptive,
    camouflaged subject.

    Thanks... learn something new everyday. I had a feeling troll also
    referred to "throwing out bait" and thus also refers to internet "trolls"
    who do this. Say stuff and see what they get back, in a negative way. Also
    the troll under the bridge idea. It's a fitting name, but also I've seen it
    get thrown out just to make someone else look bad. It's like "all's fair on
    unmoderated internet". And it's not all that fair ON moderated, with
    someone in charge. In a way it's like a mini "world" of it's own.

  19. For many of us the best memories of life were as kids.

    I remember Shortwave radios, and listening to stories on the British
    World Service.
