Well, that's one good use for a resident-troll. Every time they go on
and on about how much they hate something, just keep reposting it
until they blow a gasket. They're minds are already gone! LOL!

Great, now I have to add another name to the list! When are you going
to give up?

Here's the revised list:

And if it wasn't already obvious that the sock puppet trolls
weren't as amused by my sock puppet troll list as they claim they
were, they've now resorted to forging replies that appear to have
been posted by me. Who is it now that needs to get a life?
