Good one Jesse
"In the late 1980s, Internet users adopted the word “troll” to denote someone who intentionally disrupts online communities."
anonymous is getting harder to pull off. Mostly they just get kicked around and laughed on this board.

Interesting article-sad, but interesting. It seems to me that an online message board where many people know each other personally and have actually met in person, or know each other through friends of a friend, etc., is much like 'real life', in that the interactions go much the same way. The 'Blowhards', as mentioned in Jesse's posted article, will receive the same reactions online as they do in 'real life'. Its simply a microcosm of the macro. People who constantly insert themselves into others' posts for the purpose of blabbing about anything and everything are not always appreciated, especially when their intent is to hijack the post or use it as their own personal pulpit for whatever their whim is at that moment. Aside from unstable teenagers who are not properly monitored by their parents during their online computer interactions, people will generally treat you as you treat them. Everyone does not appreciate interacting with everyone else online or in person at a party or other social event. Life goes on (unstable teenagers excepted).

We get a lot of posters signing up with fictitious identity's for the purposes of slandering or advertising. There pretty obvious when they start to post, also there is a screen only seen by administrators that shows location and other information about the posters that makes them even more obvious than there attitudes.
adults mostly.
