My new years resolution is to quit trolling. I've tried it before without success, but this time I intend to apply willpower.
I've been doing some deep introspection as part of a wider audit of my life, and it turns out there are some underlying psychological issues that I need to work out (possibly stemming from early adolescence), and "trolling" seems to be one of the ways these issues manifest themselves.
I'm an atheist and have been one all my life. It's not a good idea to proselytise within hearing range of me because I most happily argue the subject and really need to figure out how to make that pay better.
I also learned long ago that, even if she's an atheist, if I want a companion sans Y-chromosome there's going to be some esoteric crap in the mix. I can live with it. But discussing it with me? No. Uh-uh. Very Bad Idea™. I'm more likely to let you bend me over the counter with a strap-on but to edit and post the video to YouPorn than put up with such a conversation.
The premise? Since we all know meat is murder and since clearly capitalism is evil, we should all get our food from dumpsters. Rather than go with the old school term "dumpster diving", these hip young fellas have coined a more PC term, "Freeganism".
Confession is supposed to be good for the soul. I hope it helps mine. I feel so dirty, not about what I did but certainly about the results. My actions helped spark new interest in an organisation I wish would go away because their real interest is "brand awareness" rather than their stated and perceived goals. They're so bad that one of their founders left in disgust and started a new group which uses its funds for action rather than more fund-raising and showy but pointless gestures.
The secret's revealed here, Richard. I am responsible for that damned whale being called "Mr. Splashy Pants". I didn't make up the name (that honour goes to Omar Zayed), but I made it popular.
i'm telling you, people, they don't make 'em like this anymore. if only i had the karma bonus at the time... also, notice that none of the respondants called me a troll, despite talking about moon bases, intergalactic missile defense, and a senile reagan quote.
It seems he took offense to my reporting one of his more imbecilic dupes. Words were exchanged. Tempers flared. In the end, he said that K5 would remain the mess that it is now, and that he felt compelled to to do his part to make sure that was the case. Then he politely bid me adeiu and suggested I come here.
