Def. troll - people who seek conflict

by Volker Weber

I never thought about all the aspects. But I did learn to ignore people.

Saw this a week or so ago... excellent talk.

You mean you did all this five years ago, only better. :-)

I'm sure I had my moments... :)

There's also a sort of 'schoolmaster/ disciplinarian troll', sadly much in evidence on coding boards: 'Go and post this in the right place'; 'This question has already been answered elsewhere'; 'Show all your workings or I will not help!'

These posts can be undeniably dispiriting, until you learn to filter them out: they often carry with them the implication (probably false) that 'I could very easily have answered your question, but you have to obey my rules!'

Fortunately there are a lot of generous spirited people on those same boards who will commit time and energy to helping coding newbies, etc, and these do eventually counterbalance the obnoxious types.

Love this, worth every second of the 12-13 minutes to watch.

Hey, look, you found your very own troll.

Joerg Michael, 2012-06-12 00:12

Yeah, he is visiting once in a while.

Ich finde, hier darf ein Link zu den "Flame Warriors" nicht fehlen, auch wenn wahrscheinlich bekannt. Leider gibt es die Originalseite nicht mehr...

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
