trolling trolling trolling (no more)

My name is Ardiril (aka mischief), and I am an internet troll personality [via NickySkye]. I am not the only troll here. With this post, I remove my option of denial. Who else among you will accept my challenge to change? [more inside]

He's dead, Jim.

To update followers of the Prenda Law porn-trolling copyright lawyers saga, Judge Wright has just issued a catastrophic order [.pdf] imposing sanctions and making criminal referrals, entertainingly littered with Star Trek references.

The Oxford Handbook of Eye Movements

So the Amanda Knox thread has been pretty successfully trolled in the exact same way twice now, the first time apparently by a user operating under a secondary account. So, hey, are nerkul and fraac the same people? and could they knock it off?

Academic schedule and MetaFilter angst/happiness. Is there a chart?

Academic schedule and MetaFilter angst/happiness. Is there a chart? It just seems like one day we're all spousing and hugging and then next day it's a call for flameouts and pitchforks. [more inside]

Stop referring to yourself in the third person, buttwipe.

Unless you're Ricky Henderson. And if you are, prove it. And if you prove it, my sincere apologies because I do believe that you (and only you) are entitled to do that.

Flag the troll

Could we get a "troll" option for flagging?

"I'm making shit up to provoke a reaction."

Trolling MetaFilter is not very useful: "I'm making shit up to provoke a reaction."

OK, I'm going to call troll on this.

OK, I'm going to call troll on this. It's a continuation from another thread, so it's unnecessary. It's trollish because the poster is using the post not to point out something interesting or debate-worthy on the Web, but to further an agenda.

This reminds me of a large mythical creature that lurks under bridges, and also smacks of lots of news.

Multi-account MeFi abuser is back

If he hates MetaFilter so much, why does he keep this up?

MeFi Troll Alert

God I hate trolls. There's someone trolling MetaFilter now, under a couple names. They're posting links to stuff that is somewhat related to their own stuff (it may or may not actually be their own sites they are linking to), and they're posting ridiculous comments from different accounts, but at the same IP, at the same time.

It's times like this that I wish someone would just buy MetaFilter off me and take over. Deleting posts by trolls is about the biggest waste of time in the world, and trying to build an idiot proof site is no picnic either.

Everyone with sites that allow user input: beware of stupid trolls. They ruin everything for the rest of us, and they do it for no good reason. Ugh.
