It's been a long time since I visted the stinking cesspit that is slashdot.

But its good to know that AC trolling is still possible if you get in early and reply to a "funny" comment...



Not as much fun as in the good old days, and not too many responses, but I could sense I had triggered the cognitive dissonance in a couple of posters.

Anyone else still waste their energy on this somewhat ridiculous pastime?

You managed to go from talking about programming to your diseased rants about Democrats and left wingers yet again. I'd ask what's wrong with you, but then again we already know what's wrong with you. You left Husi once. Kindly go away again. Take your bullshit elsewhere, asshole.

Oh it helped by Orion Blastar (1.00 / 2) #20 Thu Apr 12, 2007 at 02:25:13 PM EST
because I have a place to speak here. I have the freedoms and rights to communicate what happened to me and how it ruined my career and my life.

You and others are under no obligation to listen to me or provide me a place to speak, as I am not speaking to you and I am not posting on your property. Husi is a public place to post, and if you are not an editor or admin, you cannot deny me a place to speak here. Get used to it.

If my comments bother you that much, just ignore them. If I am accused of being a troll, the best thing to do with a troll is to ignore them. You are under no obligations to reply to any of my posts or diaries.

Basically I don't care what you think, and what you say is no more important to me than dust in the wind. Yet you have a right to say it and the freedom to express yourself, and unlike you I'd never take that away from you as you seem to what to take it away from me with threats to drive me off of this web site.

Husi is a public place to post

No, it belongs to Hulver, there's nothing public about it. You (and I) post only at his discretion.

if you are not an editor or admin, you cannot deny me a place to speak here.

No, but we can zero you if we feel like it, and can certainly tell you to fuck off if that's our desire. "Get used to it" - freedom of speech works both ways.

If my comments bother you that much, just ignore them. If I am accused of being a troll, the best thing to do with a troll is to ignore them. You are under no obligations to reply to any of my posts or diaries.

Ditto.

I'd never take that away from you as you seem to what to take it away from me with threats to drive me off of this web site

How exactly can "we" do that? Genuine question - if you don't want to leave, how can any of us make you?

I have no quarrel with you, other than that a lot of what you post appears to me to be a waste of bandwidth (but then I'm sure that many would say the same of me), but you do seem to have something of a chip on your shoulder.

No, you're an asshole and a troll because you're a bad person. You may or may not be mentally ill; if you are, then that's too bad, and it doesn't make you a bad person. One of my best friends from high school is schizophrenic. Mocking someone's suicide, however, does make you a bad person (don't think I haven't heard about that). Good day.

Mocking suicide by Orion Blastar (2.00 / 1) #24 Thu Apr 12, 2007 at 02:41:08 PM EST
the only thing I did was mock my own suicide attempt.

I had gotten a lot of people on Kuro5hin, IWETHEY, Husi, etc telling me to go kill myself. I suffer from schizo affective disorder and depression and was fighting off suicidal thoughts due to all the stress I was under.

So the best way to get those suicidal thoughts out of my system was to do a cyber suicide. The only person I really mocked as myself. It fooled nobody, but it avoided me killing myself for real or going into a hospital.

I am so ill that I am on disability and cannot work. The online communities have no idea of the sort of stress and things they have done to me, which by your definition makes them the bad people for forcing me into suicidal thoughts and doing a mock suicide of myself. I suffer a lot of mental cruelty from people who call themselves so called humanitarians.

I once had a good career and I once made a whole lot of money in that career. Now everything I ever hoped for is gone and there are just very few reasons left for me to live.

We stress you out we encourage thoughts of suicide by Cloaked User (4.00 / 1) #32 Thu Apr 12, 2007 at 03:37:07 PM EST
Yet you come back.

Why?

I once had a good career and I once made a whole lot of money in that career. Now everything I ever hoped for is gone and there are just very few reasons left for me to live.

Your career is irrelevant. To live is to experience, to learn, and to influence others (preferably for the good). So, go do that.

No one goes to their death bed thinking "I wish I spent more time in the office".

[ Parent ]
Why? by Orion Blastar (2.00 / 1) #34 Thu Apr 12, 2007 at 03:49:37 PM EST
Because I am trying to learn to adapt, and see if I can go back to the places that have harmed me and start over again. It is hard for me to try to change my own behavior when my illness has control.

Perhaps I thought people here had wizened up and learned from their past mistakes. Yet it doesn't seem to be the case.

What I have learned is to not put value on what negative people like yourself say about me. If I can do that, then it does not hurt as much.

Alas I cannot live and experience and learn and influence others due to the mental illnesses that I have. I am able to learn and experience, and I do want to influence others for the greater good. But I keep being discriminated against because of my mental illnesses, and it keeps me down.

When I did work, I helped others learn how to program, as many were hired with a Comp Sci degree but had problems learning how to program. I trained them and tutored them until they had a better understanding. When I was in college I tutored other students in programming and debugged their programs. Those were happier times for me, but those days are over.

It is hard for me to adjust to this world that discriminates against the mentally ill. Because I am mentally ill and it causes behavior in me, I often get the wrong ideas people make about me. There is a stigmata against the mentally ill in that we are the type to be assholes, or trolls, or bad people, because he have behavior that the mental illness creates that we have a hard time controlling. It is noticeable even on the Internet.

If I could be free of these mental illnesses I would be happier. But there is no cure. No hope. Just people who discriminate against me and confuse my mental illness for sanity. Yet I've been out of work since 2002 and my family have suffered for that too. Very few here have even bothered to try to see things from my point of view, and most don't and accuse me of being an asshole or troll without ever seeing things from my point of view or walking a mile in my shoes.

I don't even know why I considered giving Husi a second chance, or that I wouldn't be discriminated against again. I thought Husi had matured and grown up, guess I was wrong?

I had hoped to see Michael Crawford still posting on here, but like me he seems to have left due to discrimination against his mental illnesses. Which establishes a pattern with certain Husi members.

You have me all wrong. I have my demons, and I have mostly caged them. Mostly. I would help, yet you wear your supposed illness like a badge, using it as a reason to act as you do.

These few messages are the first time I remember ever responding to you, yet already you write me off as an enemy. So be it.

I am not writing you off as an enemy, just someone who doesn't understand me yet. Your few posts currently do have a negative effect on me, so that is why I thought you were a negative person. I guess with all the others attacking me in this thread I sort of get used to the idea of everyone here ganging up on me. Sorry about that, it is my paranoia talking.

Obssessive by Cloaked User (4.00 / 1) #39 Thu Apr 12, 2007 at 04:29:35 PM EST
If even I have forgotten, then you are obsessing more than is even remotely reasonable.

We're not ganging up on you, we just have highly tuned bullshit detectors, and right now mine is off the scale; I've known genuinely ill people, and you just don't feel right.

Oh, and I most certainly am a negative person, but I haven't even begun to be negative towards you yet (ok, apart from maybe that last sentence). I simply don't believe you - schizo affective disorder I'll take on trust, but your employer poisoning you and you not suing? Bullshit.

My employer was a law firm by Orion Blastar (2.00 / 1) #43 Thu Apr 12, 2007 at 06:31:01 PM EST
with the best lawyers in town. I have schizo affective disorder and that discredits anything I have to say about them, because the illness create delusions. My poisoning belief might be one of the delusions that my illness creates. Since it can be proven in court that schizo affective people suffer from delusions, they cannot take anything I say even if I can back it up.

Sometimes a troll can be created by Orion Blastar (3.00 / 3) #28 Thu Apr 12, 2007 at 03:00:07 PM EST
without even meaning to create a troll. Anything that talks about commercial verses open source programming is going to be a lightning rod for trolls and trolling.

Why just try to compare right-wing people with left-wing people, instant troll. Politics is a good lightning rod for trolls and trolling as well.

My good friend, Michael Crawford, who suffers from schizo affective disorder like I do, just writes his diaries on Kuro5hin and posts his thoughts like I do, and we both get accused of being trolls and trolling because we both have mental illnesses and it makes people think we are bad people or assholes or trolls, but really it is the schizo affective disorder that has us post that way. I've tried to not post that way, and it is very hard. But the schizo affective disorder distorts reality, causes paranoia, and sometimes conspiracy theories, etc. Michael and I agree that a thought police exists. I can show by the number of people that attack me recently on Husi because I mentioned what left-wingers and Democrats did to me, that there is a conspiracy here against people who speak out against left-wingers and Democrats. Yet if someone speaks out against right-wingers and Republicans, they are not treated the way I am treated.

Anyway it is very hard not to create a troll on various subjects.

Open source software by Orion Blastar (4.00 / 1) #55 Sun Apr 15, 2007 at 05:56:03 PM EST
depends on the people writing the software, the same for commercial software. I've seen bad examples of both and I've seen good examples of both.

It is all in who you hired to write the code and how good they are. If they are sloppy and don't do garbage collection or watch pointers or objects to see if they are closed out or freed up the memory they use after they used them, then that can sink any software commercial or open source.

Trust me I worked with commercial programmers like that and I had to keep putting out the fires they created and the fires that management created because they didn't understand how technology and programming really works. I had to clean up their code and I worked so hard that it put a lot of stress on me. I was abused that way by management and been forced into fixing other people's mistakes to the point that it was mostly what I was doing all day and not have enough time left to write my own projects. Naturally after they fired me, for getting too sick due to the mental and physical abuse I was under that caused mental and physical illnesses, all of their projects suffered and crashed their servers and workstations because they did nothing but sloppy code and nobody was left to clean up their messes and fight those fires for them. They begged me to go back to work, but I was not medically cleared to work anymore.
