So, are you going to make a point, or is this thread just digital vandalism?

Someone stole the "k" out of your moniker. Ping the mods, I'm sure they will retrieve it for you.

Funny how “notted” and “zotted” have just one letter in difference.

I agree. Is there a point or is the poster just trolling?

Just read your posting history. You seem like an interesting person.

Too bad you'll probably get the zot for this childish bit of navel-gazing.

But that's how you learn...

Am I a troll? Because I posted a graphic from the website Legal- Insurrection?

I thought it was an interesting reference, but I see the irony. If a poster, (myself) posts and idea contrary to the community of thought does that make the poster a troll and/or is the community of commentators, therefor thought police?

I realize motive is difficult to assign to people you really do not know as the post suggests, so I will simply assume the best.

No, it's because you put up a post that looks more like bait, than a fully formed opinion or observation.

Trolls have a habit of leaving the odd dropping, in hopes that good folks will step in it. That's what your post looks like to seasoned Freepers.

Yours; is an insightful observation, I had not considered your viewpoint. I accept your criticism. without reserve. I maybe unseasoned, insofar as respecting the etiquette of FreeRepublic. I will be more thoughtful in the future. But I appreciate the feedback, from “all of the commentators”

I have been educated, duly notted.

Are you part of Obama’s low paid low information voters who went to class to troll?

You want to deny the bully boys their opportunity to another lynching? You're no fun!

That's the first step to a long and enjoyable tenure as a Freeper, friend. I think you'll do just fine here.

(and I didn't miss the bit of wit at the end. Another plus.)

I read the entire thing and never once thought, “Some troll posted this and wants to be zotted.” I thought it was interesting.

The comments about the five year old were particularly vicious.

Apology accepted. But I will note that you did not post a graphic as claimed in post 12. You merely excerpted a blog. And did a bad job of doing it too.

Don’t do it again. Thanks.

One of the best threads ever on posting a thread. Humbly submitted by a great poster:

You do know that you can post more than 10 words in a thread, don't you?

I've always had a problem with the posting guidelines here. I believe that posting an entire article without permission is theft - pure and simple. I think that every article should be excerpted unless we have permission from the source to post full articles.

As to the posting limitations, copyright laws are laws. That means they are to be interpreted by courts and not by people on message boards.

It seems like many FReepers believe that the copyright laws were created in 1999 in order to harass Free Republic and other conservative sites. In reality, the first US copyright law dates to 1790. That's long before the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the thankfully dead Righthaven.

It’s the “Lord of the Flies” gang. They wander around looking for odd things that they can jump on and scream “Troll Troll Troll”.

Use it however you wish; or not, as you choose. Just a bit of background for a thread on trolls.

Well, there’s no mention of Viking kitties, so how much do they really know about fighting trolls?
