My friend told me that the Gamecube will survive a bath in nitric
acid.I think it won't survive.

What do you think?

Every month or so, using a fictitious name, this troll floods 5000
newsgroups (all cross-posted to a single low-traffic but unrelated
newsgroup) with superficially relevant comments. The purpose is to disrupt
with off-topic crosspostings.

Like all trolls, he means to annoy and disrupt. The tracking newsgroup is
the way he "keeps score" of how much damage he has caused. Don't put
yourself on display in his trophy case.

If you feel you have to respond to one of his posts, please don't crosspost
to his tracking newsgroup. In this case it is israel.amix.

Like all trolls, the way to handle him is to IGNORE him.

Take a few minutes of your time and check out the following score cards to
see firsthand what this perverted troll is doing. I promise, you'll be
amazed at just how active and perverted he is. You will see firsthand the
troll's work and his trophies. You will see into the sickness and darkness
of the worst troll on the internet today. Read some of his posts and look at
the headers. You will see than no newsgroup is immune. You will see
flamewars started, some containing over a hundred messages.

Browse the can.uucp newsgroup, his old score card, for Karl-Hugo Weesberg

Browse the is.matur newsgroup, his old score card, for Dan Simper.

Browse the scot.tld newsgroup, his old score card, for Bruno Beam.

Browse the israel.amix newsgroup, his current score card, for Paul Eisner.

He is known as the "anagram troll" because his fictitious names are often
discovered to be anagrams (for example "Dan Simper" is an anagram of
"Spiderman", Bruno Beam is an anagram of "Unabomber").

This guy is a serious troll with a serious problem. Don't be one of his
trophies.

Chances are that I don't subscribe to this newsgroup. I am simply monitoring
the newsgroups the Anagram Troll is using as his score card. Any posts from
me are a result of that monitoring. I normally only post to the newsgroup
being spammed, not to the score card newsgroup, thus I will not see any
replies directly to this post.

Above all, please do not allow him to start a flamewar or extensive
discussion in your newsgroup. He thrives on that. If it is too late, don't
crosspost to his score card newsgroup. That trophy count is his motivation
to continue trolling. Please help stop him in his tracks.

The question is will *YOU* survive a bath in nitric acid. Try it out and
have your friend let us know the results...

If the Wikipedia entry on nitric acid is any indication, I'd say no.

First of all, it's probably a completely automated bot that just tracks this
guy's posts. This same post was made to the Xbox and PS2 groups (and likely
lots more) following incredibly lame troll attempts by this same Paul Eisner
asshat.

And since Anti-Troll snipped the troll's scorecard newsgroup (israel.amix),
the troll will never see this response or get any satisfaction from it.
Anti-Troll is doing the newsgroups that this shitheel posts to a favor.

Not just the game newsgroups, either: I saw one of his troll posts over on
sci.space.history this morning. And one of the regulars there actually
posted a reply (the post didn't appear *too* OT at first glance, after
all), completely oblivious to the possibility that "Anti-Troll" may have
been right. :/

Looks like he's posted to over *400* different newsgroups in the past three
days:

This whole thing brings up an interesting point. I wonder if there really
are Anti-trolls, not people who try to stop trolls from posting, but people
who post to get the fewest number of replies to a given post...

Probably not, attention and recognition is a basic human need while the
need to be rejected and ignored isn't, and besides, there wouldn't be as
much challenge to it as there is to real trolling.

Yet you weren't smart enough to remove his score-keeping "israel.amix"
group from your followups.

I just didn't feel like it. We've had this discussion before Bobby. I don't waste
my time looking at all the NGs a message is posted to. I could care less. Now, kindly
kiss my ass you sweat from a baboon's balls.

BTW, *your* troll was pretty lame too (although it did get me to respond, shame on me)
