Judaism is a religion pertaining to Jews. Not all Jews necessarily adhere to Judaism but all adherents of Judaism are Jewish (Arguable).

Gosh darn Judaisms, they're almost as bad as the Catholicisms and Seventh Day Adventisms.

We can't. She's not paid. If she is on a payroll, then there's a way.

How so?


Y'know, Lor, I have this image of you watching a nightclub standup comic, walking up onstage, and having a heartfelt discussion with him:

"I confess, sir, you bring up an interesting point that puzzles me: I'm not sure how your 'arms would be tired' after arriving at the airport, as I've flown many airlines, and I've found them quite comfortable...Could you possibly clear up your meaning in greater detail? And I'm still not quite sure why you say you 'bit' that earlier person you mentioned who was looking for a handout--Is this your solution to the homelessness problem?"


Alright what gives, I want answers and i'm not getting them from you're shadowy figure that you're on about.

"Race is the classification of humans into groups based on physical traits, ancestry, genetics or social relations." Well yeah I guess they are. I would say Judaism covers both ancestry and social relations.

No, not that shadowy figure, we're talking about the Moderator who loves, cuddles, nurtures, and bottle-feeds trolls--like a baby rabbit, by hand--with deeply faithful and believing responses, praising what "colorful discussion topics they bring to our group!", instead of banning their sorry high-school 90's-Usenet-nostalgic hinders.
(IOW, dude, that was trying either WAY TOO HARD or Way Too Lazy; you know it, we know it, she's one of the few people on the planet who doesn't seem to know it, and darnit, she's the Moderator.)
And then believes it so much, she calls any poor posters who might even suggest that the OP wasn't trying to float a Colorful Discussion topic "mean" and "disruptive", and bans them.

Which is why the GD forum is starting to get a reputation among the troll-ether as an easier mark than walking down a back alley waving $20 bills.
You just have to look at Deyre's threads to see that the trolls are now posting in their sleep. It's not like they have to put any effort into it any more around here.
(I mean, seriously....Jews? Really?? I've seen Mel Brooks movies do more convincing 'anti-Semitism'...You're really new at this, or you're just bored silly with this group, aren't you? That's the stuff I'm talking about.

You're really upset.

Speaking of USENET, I must've looked at the wrong groups or something because I couldn't find even one group that's not either gathering cobwebs, serving files that aren't even good to download anymore because RIAA busted everything, spam, or "hello I'm posting here after it's been dead for 10 years" sort of post............ are you still using newsgroups for text? If so, which ones?

So's Holy Drumstick--Check out his anti-Deyre thread.

No, there isn't any Usenet today. It was ended around, oh, '06 or thereabouts, if my geezer memory doesn't fail me.

But that makes me the senior Old Man here to remember the "Trolling" myth that all the kids here have turned into some decade myth about "Gee, it was supposed to have been really cool, you could troll a group and break up all the discussions!"
Which, well, you could, if you were a stoner, in junior high, or similarly fell for easy, easy gags about how Star Trek nerds would get all angry and go into funny arguments if you wound them up with a key, huhuh, huhuh.
Why? Because there was NO MODERATION. Usenet was an open forum. Some groups were moderated, but it was a lot of work, and only for the most dedicated and established big groups that had someone to do it. There was no technology at the time to make stupid and obvious provocation threads go "blinky" and disappear with only the click of a button, and no cyber-guard at the gate to make sure he never posted there again.
And when there suddenly was, with the rise of Forums and Blogs--when, ahem, Moderators DO THEIR JOB--that's when Trolling as an Internet "phenomenon" also went the way of the horse, buggy and 3.5" floppy-disk.

I remember being actually academic in trying to teach groups how to psychoanalyze the troll, guess their age, fandom (Howard Stern was really big way back then, before Adult Swim or Family Guy) or intoxication habits from their posts or approach, and that more importantly, people, it's NOT REAL.
Yes, back in the 90's, we all heard Internet Scare Stories on the TV news about "All the child-molesters and Neo-Nazi groups on the Internet!", but folks, I'm reasonably 90% sure this idiot is not really the Neo-Nazi Anti-Semite he desperately, desperately, desperately pretends to be, since he also seems to have heard the same TV news stories.
I often found myself using Vaudeville terminology to explain to serious and naive troll-free topic groups how it was Just a Third-Rate Amateur Song and Dance, using terms like "Call for the hook", "Pull the trap-door lever", and "Catching the last train out of town before the audience turns ugly."

Seriously, you weren't there? Okay, probably not: YOU WEREN'T THERE.
Neither were most of the, quote-fingers, "trolls" we get today, trying to carry on some imagined "tradition" they heard about from before they were born.
