A concern troll is a false flag pseudonym created by a user whose actual point of view is opposed to the one that the troll claims to hold. The concern troll posts in Web forums devoted to its declared point of view and attempts to sway the group's actions or opinions while claiming to share their goals, but with professed "concerns". The goal is to sow fear, uncertainty and doubt within the group.


Dramatic, self-serving nonsense like this is the reason pretty much all of us have went somewhere else to post. Good lord.

There was a discussion about what is or is not an internet troll. I came across this (2nd) definition in wiki. I'd never seen it described this way. I thought it was interesting.

At one time, I enjoyed debating opposing views. Like you it became a huge time waster for me, but I hung with it. However, when the frustration level exponentially exceeded the Mendoza line, it was time to go.

The gas grill discussion still haunts me. LOL.

:shock:

Me!

First thing I said when I woke up: "my allergies are going crazy! I hate this!". :lol:

I'm in California, though.

FWIW, I take advil cold & sinus during the day and benadryl at night. The advil c&s doesn't stop the tickle of the allergies, but it dries everything up and opens the chest. Claritin and other daytime otc allergy meds don't work for me.

This is pretty serious: http://www.engadget.com/2016/01/06/hackers-shut-down-power-grid-in-ukraine/

Hopefully everyone begins taking this as a serious threat. The more prepared people are for things like this the better. Imagine a large metropolitan area like NYC and the death toll if something like this happened. Also, you can bet that almost all of the federal help would go to larger cities and the more rural areas would be left to help themselves.

Instead of an automatic car wash, an automatic people wash would be so awesome. It'd probably cut water usage by a 3rd too. Go green, go clean.
