Long ago, I came across some newsgroup where folk would discuss and
actually compete for trolls and insults in other newsgroups. I wonder if
this jerk is one of them. As I recall, the people would enter a newsgroup
with a legitimate comment or question and continue with it for several
replies, seeing how many they could get. Gradually, they'd toss in a
correction to one of the most respected members and add a slight insult.
That'd draw a reply and they'd just keep upping the ante, competing to see
how many others could drawn into the fray. Eventually, they'd report to
their own newsgroup what they'd done and the members would visit the
newsgroup that had been disrupted into a fray.
I lost track of the name of the newsgroup, but wonder if this jerk is a
participant. FWIW, I've seen several other similar type of escalating
flame wars recently in some other newsgroups I follow that seem to be of
this same pattern.
. . . on a darned diet
and ready to chew off
my own elbows.
Used to see that kind of scorekeeping activity on alt.flame & alt.flame-wars
way back in the day....
