I think I know what a sock and troll are, not really sure what a straw man is. If you were around earlier tonight (11/25/03 about 7PM EST), we had the distinct displeasure of a poster named something like EVIL_MONKEYS_IN_MY_HEAD. What’s the official message board name for someone like him/her? A Kamikaze?
If you weren’t here, this character created a user name and began a posting rampage, like 20 posts in 20 minutes. All the posts I saw were basically nonsense.
So is there a dictionary out there somewhere that defines message board “nuisance” nomenclature?
