I only wish I'd had the opportunity to tell him to "Fuck off" more often. I feel like he left before really knowing just how I sincerely I meant it.

Does a moderator get "ace" status after 5 confirmed kills?

Watching him throw "humanism is an ideology!!!!11!" into a thread like it was a Randy Savage elbow-drop style finishing move only to have everyone else go - 'Yeah, so?" was kinda funny.

No, I think they get "00" status after two kills. Nothing special about the designation, just indicates that you've had to ban a chap in cold blood.

I was just coming in to comment on Femmejean. He/she's just started one on whether the 9/11 hijackers could have been de-radicalized. Anyone want to start off the betting on this one?

Yeah, noticed it too. Clear case of confused socks. And classic case of sleeper troll, registered since 2006 but only has started to mightily troll for a few weeks. Will get booted soon...

I was wondering about femmejean, too.

Where I previously thought jtur88 was a run-of-the-mill tool, after reading his pit thread, I think he's intentionally trolling.

I finally googled JugearS, because curiosity got the better of me. Looks like doorhinge found a new word. Can we at least get some higher quality asshats? These aren't even a step up from Facebook trolls.

From the recently released Intel Report on Russian hacking:

Quote:
"Moscow's influence campaign followed a Russian messaging strategy that blends covert intelligence operations -- such as cyberactivity -- with overt efforts by Russian government agencies, state-funded media, third-party intermediaries and paid social media users or 'trolls,' " the report found.
I don't think we're immune here at the SDMB.

To be honest, I think it was me who coined the term in a pit thread from a few years ago and nobody else uses it. Here's my post from that thread:

Then I skim their posting history and see only madness. It happens. Maybe a clever way to avoid banning, spread your crazyness in doses over many years. Trolls are a weird species.
I still think that definition applies to a good chunk of our regular trolls, it certainly fitted the sadly missed DopeyPeyote or whatshisname.

It's a very sharp social media curve on the Intertubes. As I noticed a month or so ago, despite our steady or dwindling population, we're easily in the top 500 social media sites, which makes us a target depending on how much resources Russia has to throw at us. You could easily troll the top 100 with a roomful of people and the top 1000 with not much more than that.

(Might even be wise to do so if you had so many people assigned to FacePage and RedSpace that they were in danger of being detected and kicked off.)

He's currently making a valuable contribution to the ACA discussion with a revolutionary insight into medicine. Apparently what Obamacare needs to have, but utterly fails to provide, is a dirt-cheap insurance plan that only provides stitches. Nothing else is really needed because, like, we're all gonna die anyway, right? The great thing about this idea is that it also makes medical school quick and easy, as it can be combined with the girls' high school sewing class and you get your MD in about an hour with full qualifications in general surgery, with a spool of thread and sewing needle included as a bonus. I have no ETA on the ban-hammer, but there's only so much out-of-the-box innovative thinking we can handle here.

John, I think you need to keep in mind the source of that comment. This is the genius who raised the fascinating question about whether consciousness lives in the quantum state after death, assuring us that "its [sic] important to keep an open mind until all the evidence comes in" and therefore pseudo-scientific babble from a sci-fi website peddling pure woo must be accorded the greatest import. And maybe Hitler is still alive. We're dealing with an intellectual and scientific powerhouse here, and if the preceding isn't convincing enough, further examples of his scientific depth and eclecticism abound: Do animal butts itch after pooping?. This is obviously no mere dilettante but one of the deepest thinkers of our generation.

I skimmed the threads and didn't see anything obvious, and assumed that poster was just pissed at you for some reason. Maybe I wasn't clear, but that was just my way of saying "put up or shut up".

Over here he is waxing stupid. He asserts that the military can remove the President from office. Mind you, that's not the only thing wrong with that post; it's just the most egregious.

Here's a new one..... Or actually probably an old one, as he has the exact same style, right down to the lower case "lol" at the end of his posts.

I'm guessing stinky sock.

I wonder if Snowboarder Bo still has his thingamajiggy to translate "lol" into "let's go down to the quarry and throw shit down there"? Because after Calico Jerk and his apparent new crusty sock that's gotta be one shit filled quarry by now.

femmejean starts a thread in GD: "Why are unusual kinks and sexual fetishes considered 'highly arousing'?"

And I get a definite whiff from new poster "MisterX" there, too...

Nah man....You don't get it.

I'm torn between crossroads of 'Why am I so undesirable as a non masculine, minority male that an attractive older woman would pursue me' and anger at the feminist rhetoric by men and women shouting 'Male Privilege!' when it's clear that sexual crimes committed by men against children would almost certainly have him beaten alive either by parents, prisoners, or random citizens.

Can someone explain what this word salad means? Do you need a doctorate in femmejean to read it, or is a master or bachelor sufficient? Not that I'm interested in pursuing either.

Attractive older women have always pursued non masculine, minority males. Are you just learning this now?

For someone not interested in sex, you show an unhealthy obsession with the subject.

I read that like five times and the best I could come up with was:

Older attractive females love effeminate males. Which somehow equates to male privilege.
