Thread: Quiet before storm?

    Default Quiet before storm?

    Why do I get the feeling, from a couple of recent bland and
    appropriately unanswered threads from previously unknown posters, that
    we are about to experience a major troll attack?

    You mean because we aren't responding with gratitude to hints about
    how to fine our 2-liter bottles of plonk at home with egg whites?

    And here I was about to share my recipe for the most sublime drinking
    experience: DRC mixed with equal parts peach schnapps and Coca-C

    Isn't that how they make Porto Cruz?

    Mike, I was thinking that too. I think they went unanswered might be the
    best prevention for that happening.

    I was tempted to tell the guy with warmth in his trunk area to move his
    trunk away from where he stores his red wine.

    He I've encountered before in the ba.food newsgroup. Despite all
    appearances, he seems to be not a troll per se. YMMV of course.

    Several technical groups that I visit, with more traffic than this
    group, have had a very large number of sales spam posts in the last
    few days, and a few of them have appeared here also. Many mail
    services will rapidly filter them out, but of course many may come
    back soon under other names, domains, and other service providers. Old
    fashioned trolls seem to come and go in waves. In these times of
    economic tightness, I wonder if some of the trolls have not decided to
    make better use of their time with sales spam rather than getting only
    some personal gratification from trolling a group or individual. To be
    an effective troll takes much time, a knowledge of how to greatly
    annoy people, and some skill in writing.

    So, here's the plan - you try to restrain <***> from punching the troll, and
    I try to calm down <***>, and we will just hope that I don't break down and
    create a scene ...

    Cheers

    Nils
