She has made an appearance...

[ #32854 ]

Our resident troll! She has been occasionally doing so, lately. Fortunately on a very sparse basis. Noticeable is that this particular intervention was not too trollish. A few of the recent ones were, though. Nice to know: I would have been upset, knowing such a shocking true like that the contrary had happened...

    • Indeed, I have this problem whenever I include news: urls in web forums posts. In fact on my system they work seamlessly out of the box. But not everybody have a newsreader installed nowadays. And even if they have, not always is the system so smart as to call it on such urls.

      Sometimes, when I'm in a particularly non-lazy mood, I do include links to the corresponding Google Groups [google.com] entries. But this can get tiresome at times...

      Come to think of it, Google Groups' advanced search [google.com] supports searches by msg i

  • What mind-boggles me is how long she's been trolling the newsgroup. I remember that she was already going strongly when I began to lurk around (circa 1999?), so it'll soon be a full decade of trollship... Ye gods... :-P

    When one thinks about it, one could almost say that she already transcended the mere status of troll to become something more; she pretty much became a kind of Moby Dick of the comp.lang.perl.misc sea... (which, I guess, has the corollary to put uri in captain Ahab's role :-) )
    • Just the same day, another one [google.com] made an appearance [googlegroups.com]. This one is a troll whose crackpottery probably outweights the trollishness, although they are roughly comparable, and is definitely a crosscultural one, for his attempts are always crossposted. Knowing that Perl is his most hated religion, I somehow expected him to be considered less of a troll and a crackpot in other communities. Evidence as given in some other messages of that thread, which -I admit- I read notwithstandig the fact that I have him killfi

      • Ah, yes, Xah Le... I agree that the jury is still out as to which tribe -- crackpots or trolls -- he's part of, but the fact that he never partake in the flamethreads triggered by his posts kind of hint to the latter.

        But we better stop listing the Who's Who of the c.l.p.m. freaks, lest people will begin to think it's akin to the Mosley Cantina -- a wretched hive of scum and villainy. ;-)

          Fair enough, but judging from what I see in other communities I'm tempted to say that even in the realm of freaks Perl does better! OTOH with those two I think we've fundamentally exhausted the list of long term recurring PITAs in clpmisc.

            *g* True. Other languages may get mere freaks, but Perl attracts Kwalitee Kooks. :-)
