Welcome Back, Freak…

My little troll freak was back this morning. I’ve deleted his comments (again) and banned yet another IP for him. So if you suddenly can’t comment, please let me know. I guess you’ll have to use e-mail – Christine at this will get to me.

um, If I would have to guess, I would think yr troll would be one of your unhappy readers. I have sent several requests in different methods to get access to your restricted posts, but never heard back from you. Unlike me, though, I think your troll is someone who isn’t mature enough to handle this kind of rejection. Maybe you should cross reference the IP of your troll with your application process.

~Is the same freak using the Ripe network who is spamming your comments with links to their shitty websites? This person(s) strikes my site as well, I usually catch it, ban the IP and delete and rebuild before no one has a chance to hit the website(s)…strange thing is they post the spam comment on posts from a year ago or later…~

Nope, he doesn’t leave spam (or any URL), just rude attacks full of illiterate comments. He got to my site the first time from a search for “Cingular Sucks” so my bet is that he works for Cingular or is a disgruntled customer service employee.

I’m all for plugging WordPress – heck, I named it! 😉

It happens so rarely, it wouldn’t be worth the hassle for me to approve the rest of my comments. I haven’t had a troll in a year or two – I kind of forgot how fun it is to mess with them!

One of the nifty MT filters is called “disemvowelment”, and some sites use it to remove all vowels from posts by trolls.

That’s lovely!

…and you guys wonder why I’m so reluctant to start blogging.

Feh to these ridiculous morons who have nothing consrtuctive to add to a conversation. Let ’em go listen to Michael Savage…no grammar required.
