your weekend dose of WTF

Went out to deposit paycheck, pick up drugs, get blood drawn, get mail, and hang out with P, more or less in that order, and got everything done except for the mail since I forgot the box key. Oh well; there's always next week. Also got pretty wet when the thunderstorm rolled through town as I was coming out of the video store. Killed the rest of the afternoon playing Civ and re-reading The Palace of Love; quit Civ when the Arabs started to disassemble my empire; next time one of the AI asks for a map and some spare change, I'm going to fork it over.

Apparently my comments on the Rachel Moss deal attracted some Anonymous Cowards looking to do a little trolling. Sorry, kids, I know how to play the game and you aren't getting any scope here. Abuse me all you like on your own blogs & journals; I frankly don't care. The pool of people whose opinions I do care about is pretty small, and those that post here actually have balls enough to use their own LJ handles or other means of identity.

UPDATE: Hey there, Anonymous Cowards! For the benefit of you trolls that can't read too well, comments are moderated here. Which means you don't get to leave a comment unless I want you to. Normally, I let it all hang out, but the winds of my whims have shifted, and your trolling days here are at an end. Buh-bye.

this is why I don't have a political blog, I am too thin skinned for it.

Well, there are tools you can use to keep annoying people out of your blog or restrict the political posts so that only me, sqotty and the other Right Wing Death Beasts can see or comment on them, but that's a judgment call you have to make for yourself. If you don't want to bother, I completely understand.

I have to say, though, after four years of doing this LJ, I'm bemused that the first outbreak of trolling here has more to do with my looks than my politics.

yea, I'll do that. I bounced an email to you just now. Who on our mutual Flist do you think should be included?

Good question. Most of the conservatives/Republicans I knew in MN weren't on LJ. Well, there's fsfrapier.

I'm sorry you received those comments. I often wonder how anonymous trolls (and posting offensive things anonymously is pretty cowardly, in my opinion) have the time to hurt and harass others. I mean, instead of spending so much time trolling blogs and posting hurtful comments, shouldn't they be out, I don't know... exercising instead? I mean, they wouldn't want to get fat now, would they?

Your posts sounds as if you are growing as a person, while they're simply stagnating in a muck of their own making. More power to you.

Your posts sounds as if you are growing as a person...

Mostly horizontally of late, unfortunately. LOL.
Seriously, though, thanks. That's pretty much the line I took when I accused one of the ACs of projection - you're going around leaving anonymous comments on some stranger's LJ, and you think I'm the one with the problem?

I'm... totally surprised that you have trolls watching your LJ. Most people, if they said anything on the subject, no one would even notice. Did your post get linked somewhere or something? o_O
Jun. 2nd, 2008 12:34 am (UTC)
I'm pretty sure it got linked somewhere, because this LJ is pretty damn obscure. Not the first time I've had ACs trying to post here, but this is the first time I've seen trolls showing up. Be still my heart. ;)

You got trolled? I just don't get it. I mean, why do people bother doing that? It's not as if you had said anything particularly provocative. Wiscon may not be my cup of tea; but yeah, if other people like it, that's their business.

I dunno; immaturity and lack of useful ways to spend time would be my guesses.
