Trolling

My resolution is still in effect. It has been a very difficult 7 weeks or so, but I am steadfast in my commitment. I may have wavered from time to time, but I really have tried hard to keep my content troll free.




I feel a lot better for it too. I think I have come to a realization that attempting to educate the Internet via misinformation is a Sysphian task, never likely to be completed, and also, not my responsibility.

In the time I saved I have upgraded all my Logic Pro plugins to their latest versions, and figured out the solution to an automation issue from which I have been suffering. Also managed to get some clubbing and snowboarding done. I think it is getting easier as time goes by. I am able to ignore those red flags that in earlier times would have provoked me into trolling.

On the other hand, my alcohol intake seems to have risen slightly. It's too early to draw any firm conclusions on the cause of this.

I think husi overall is benefiting from my rehabilitation. It seems just that little bit friendlier now.

It *is* it's own reward by Bob Abooey (4.00 / 3) #2 Wed Feb 24, 2010 at 06:19:35 AM EST
I remember when I realized that trolling wasn't worth it - it was back in 1972 when Linus Torvaldes began inventing the Apple Macintosh operating system. I knew then, that a huge event such as that would certainly make it easy to troll - but I decided to rise above it and ever since then I've minded my p's and q's.

Oh sure, it's been tempting, like when Tim Berners Lee developed Windows 95 and everyone said how great it was - I knew it would be like shooting fish in a barrel to troll those simpletons. And don't get me started about trolling the rubes who thought that Unox was a better operating system than emacs.

No sir - clean living is the way to go.

Warmest regards,

Avoiding trolling. by nightflameblue (4.00 / 2) #3 Wed Feb 24, 2010 at 07:49:45 AM EST
I have found that if there's no line in the water you tend to get far fewer bites, if you know what I mean. Interaction rates tend to drop like a rock when you're not going out of your way to be a butthole.

Then again, around here interaction rates tend to be pretty low anyway.

It exists in a quantum superposition by dmg (4.00 / 1) #10 Wed Feb 24, 2010 at 07:18:50 PM EST
Of both troll and non-troll, until observed.
