Pretty peppy piece, pal! Packed with prime pearls of pungently prejudiced prevarication!
How's that "disregarding my posts" thing workin' out for ya?
There's your weakness, Anglo...you can't help but respond.
I throw the ball, you chase the ball....
Anglo, do you think it's possible for you to BE more pompous, arrogant, and condescending?
Oh, the poor oppressed fellow. No wonder he's so enraged.
Goodness, Mr. Anglophile is a very angry fellow, isn't he?
If you can get through the turgid prose, endless hectoring monologues, and cardboard characters of Atlas Shrugged, you have far more patience than I.

What Is A Troll?
The term derives from "trolling", a style of fishing which involves trailing bait through a likely spot hoping for a bite. The troll posts a message, often in response to an honest question, that is intended to upset, disrupt or simply insult the group.
Why do trolls do it?
I believe that most trolls are sad people, living their lonely lives vicariously through those they see as strong and successful.
Disrupting a stable newsgroup gives the illusion of power, just as for a few, stalking a strong person allows them to think they are strong, too.
For trolls, any response is 'recognition'; they are unable to distinguish between irritation and admiration; their ego grows directly in proportion to the response, regardless of the form or content of that response.

"o dear...here we go with people complaining about taxes and how the rich should be taxed until they are poor! "

That would be you, expat.
