why do you troll the trolls?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
My forum screen is dotted with blue. All the the ones signed Norm do not get opened. If you would quit reading and answering the trolls they would soon go away.

You know what that says to me? You won't even open your Doomer Eyes.

I read Norm's posts for 2 reasons. First, I'm looking for any and all information on the issue. Second, after I read one of his happy face articles, I go out and try to find the counter-point, and post it in his thread to keep balance here. I don't want the newbies to get the wrong idea, and think this is no big deal. <:)=

No, Seeing You, you've got it wrong, as any Norm fan would. What Taz means is it didn't take too many of Norm's posts before she realized that the poster has nothing useful to convey, therefore time is saved by not reading anything with that signature.

you're so confused
can't stop ROFL...

You're confused. I'm not a Norm fan. I'm a PEOPLE FAN.

Just ignore the posts you have no interest in. It's the appropriate response.
Yeah, I almost "bit" for awhile trying to find the counterpoint to Norm's posts, then I realized I had no need to be reactionary. It's a waste of time.
Any newbies who do their homework, will search beyond what appears to be the obvious.

I agree. Maybe if we ignore the good news it will just go away.

after realizing that all of Norm's posts are either government or corporate propaganda with virtually no visible proof behind them, I stopped reading them as well...
I guess Sysman just has more time than the rest of us.

Ha Ha Ha
You think the govt. or corps are that worried about you guys?
Maybe it's another doomer trying to calm the masses so he has more time to finish his fortress.
