Does anyone else find themselves not bothering to even open a thread when they see that the last post was made by Sprocket or CentralCaliBike?
It is a little like when you are driving along the freeway and see a car wreck. You almost have to look.BroDeal said:

I do think surely we can all agree that this man has serious mental problems and perhaps even deserves the title "king of trolls."Race Radio said:It is a little like when you are driving along the freeway and see a car wreck. You almost have to look.
I think we can all agree that Arbiter/BanProCycling/UnBanProcycling/BritishProCycling/Sprocket1 has taken the trolling to a new level. This is only reasonable.
All the time. But mostly it is just the Arbiter who I find irritable. Like a bad fart that lingers in the air or living near a sewage treatment works, his writings are foul, the content, logic and context they are placed in, not the language. I asked a question earlier today, 3 or 4 pages later a reply and then it wasn't an acknowledgement but another denial that allowed the trolling to continue. 'My interpretation' was wrong, but then so was that of Publicus, as we said the same exact thing. Sprocket01 ignores the parts he cannot answer directly...because he knows the truth it just doesn't suit his purpose to acknowledge it.BroDeal said:
Yep. Left a few off the list, but as you say, reasonable indeed.Race Radio said:I think we can all agree that Arbiter/BanProCycling/UnBanProcycling/BritishProCycling/Sprocket1 has taken the trolling to a new level. This is only reasonable.
From the smell alone I would hope to get first place instead of second with any type of beer. I just do not understand why people find it enjoyable (at least from a taste point of view) - of course, perhaps it tastes better than it smells.Dr. Maserati said:Ah, come on i thought it was slightly humourous.
Anyway TheArbiter and his other sockpuppets would fill all the top places.
Darn, just when hypocrisy was been raised to new levels you hold a mirror up.Mountain Goat said:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_(Internet)
"In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."
"Application of the term troll is highly subjective. Some readers may characterize a post as trolling, while others may regard the same post as a legitimate contribution to the discussion, even if controversial. The term is often used as an ad hominem strategy to discredit an opposing position by attacking its proponent."
Every single person in this forum is guilty.. Everyone!!
IMO, calling someone a troll is trolling...
Therefore, by making that statement, I must also be a troll... Hmmm, makes you think doesn't it
