My favorite geek site posted an amazing thread/article on new implications for those Forum Trolls we all love to hate.
On Thursday, President Bush signed into law a must-pass DoJ appropriations bill which contained a little gotcha for the internet. For decades, making anonymous abusive phone calls has been a federal crime, good for up to two years behind bars -- and the term "abusive" has included threats, harassment, and the much weaker "intent to annoy." Now, that telecommunications law has been extended to include the Internet, so when you post an anonymous troll to wind up your least-favorite blogger, you may break the law. This is silly: the law needs to start taking into account the qualitative differences between things like telephones, email inboxes, blogs, and IM accounts. A 3 AM phone call is different from a post to blogger.com calling me a jerk. I don't need federal protection from that Night Elf who keeps /chickening my Orc.

I know one guy who's probably unaware but will lament my discovery of him somewhere

He's probably still afraid of getting on your radar. :laughing:



Terroristic threats are one thing, but going whining to the government.... "S/he is booooooothering meeeeeee!" :crying:

Get a grip, people!

Nice. I think it's safe to say he wins sportbikes.com "2005 Troll Of The Year" award.

Hi All-

Trolls pretty much get identified immediately and then subsequently ignored by everyone...so it kind of makes me laugh when they're around saying truly silly things! :)

:laughing: I'm not sure if you realized the irony in your statement but it made me laugh.

Hi kanwisch-

My point being that trolls say outrageously silly things, people laugh at them in the privacy of their homes, and then nobody responds to them seriously on internet forums! They subsequently get bored and go away only to be replaced by other absurd trolls. :D

HAHAHA! I was thinking about that just the other day! :laughing:

You're right, the entertainment value is too good to pass up!

Jesus.......Like the time he ruined a perfectly good boobie thread with she-male pics. You know you're a super troll when even Smitty hates you.
