The Ultimate Flame

The best flame I've ever seen. Some snippets:
I would rather kiss a lawyer than be seen with you.
Lepers avoid you
Even sheep won't have sex with you
You are the moral equivalent of a leech.
You are a fiend and a coward, and you have bad breath.

We could use a good laugh these days. I certainly needed one.

I live in the DC area. (Didn't you used to live near here?) I know a guy who spent last Tuesday in the Pentagon, he's a firefighter. I know a woman, Navy E-3, who works in the Pentagon (she's OK). I know one guy, in the Old Guard, who's on the "recovery detail". Not recovering bodies. Parts. Another in that unit who spent 53 hours on duty Tuesday and Wednesday. His girlfriend who has discovered the hazards of being in love with a soldier. A guy whose fiance is in the Air Force at Andrews, same hazards.

It's been a long week.

Windows 98 is a better server OS than Linux. Microsoft, the best software company on earth, produces the best server software, web servers and mail servers, and we should be grateful that they include so much software with the OS, so we don't need to install any third party software, which is always incompatable. Linux, which only has a command line interface, dosen't include any software, and being open source means that it is totally insecure and 'open' to viruses.

Intel CPUs are always better than AMD cpus, which are incompatable with everything. IF windows ever crashes, it's because you are using an AMD cpu. The most important thing on a CPU is clockspeed, and it totally determines the speed of your computer. The only other important thing in your computer is the memory, which must be RAMBUS, since as they own all of the memory patents, it is illegal to use any ther type of memory, all of which are 10 times slower in any case.

The DMCA is an excellent act for the good of all of us. If people are allowed to copy music that they own then it will mean the end of civilisation as we know it. All of the people who are against this act - or even critisize it - are pirates who wish to put viruses on your computer.

That's not a flame... (3.00 / 1) (#5)

That's not a flame. That's a troll.

Flame is just anger and provocation. Nothing more.

Good trolls don't flame. They raise the anger of fellow being by being just wrong - especially on purpose - and not changing their opinion.

There's a difference between the two: You don't need to give a different viewpoint to flame, and you certainly don't need to believe in the stuff you troll about.

Also, flaming is about angering an individual; trolling is about pissing off lots of people for the sake of it.

Well, what I did was just a weak attempt at very absurd joke, and hard to get if you don't know what it's about...

The Moomins are characters created by Yet Another Famous Swedish-Finnish Person, Tove Jansson. The joke was on the fact that Moomintroll is a character from children's books and real trolls are probably one order of magnitude scarier. Also, Moomintroll doesn't even look like a damn 'net troll. Moomins are almost cute. 'Net trolls are not. =)

Of course, some might argue that Moomin characters are mean enough, having appeared at least in a rather militant (humor) website called Muumivoimat and one Java-based Mortal Kombat clone (that IIRC got pulled off the net after someone with authoritah found it)... =)

You auction Osama bin Laden memorabilia on Yahoo for a living.

I remember seeing it in alt.flame in 1998 - the earliest example I could find in a google search for "puke drooling giggling beasts" was in alt.humor.best-of-usenet 1996/11/10, repeating a post in rec.games.nettrek, date unknown. Oddly, this post only quotes snippets of it and has a few interesting flames of its own added. It would appear that it's older than this. I see that it's been posted a LOT more than it used to be.

On the Internet, anyone can accuse you of being a dog.
