Bleating into the abyssThere is nothing that gladdens a troll's heart more than being talked about and nothing that saddens one more than not being noticed. The greatest fear for the troll is that they are just bleating into the abyss. You never want to be doing that.
Imagine my delight at finding that there's a whole board practically devoted to whining about me. Okay, I have to share space with Holocaust denial but you can't have everything.
As it happens, rightwing extremists are some of the easiest people there are to troll. Why? Because they are so full of shit. And trolls feed off the full-of-shitness. Sorry, but they do. If you're getting heavily trolled and flamed by someone who looks like they're enjoying it, you're either a troll yourself and asked for it, or you're full of shit.
I specialise in hypocrites. Okay, it's not much of a speciality because there are tons of the fools and they don't have the sense not to oblige you over and over. These particular idiots claim to believe in free speech but silence people they don't like. Ho hum. Surely it would be better to be honest: to say that what you are in favour of is hating Jews and that you only want to be allowed to speak freely because you want to express that.
But honesty is the enemy of the neo-Nazi. If they were honest, they would need to face up to their own inadequacies, and stop blaming their misfortunes on people of another colour or another ethnicity; they would need to accept that the world despises them because they are ugly not because there is anything wrong with the world; and they would agree to the truth that millions of Jews and others were murdered by the Germans and their allies in World War II.
Free speech is in any case a difficult area, as I discussed in connection with David Irving. You are not entirely free to say what you want in any place in this world. Leaving aside that good sense and good taste are limits on speech, there are many expressions that you are not free to make even in the freest nation. I believe free expression is a A Good Thing, probably much more so than the likes of Holocaust deniers "Igor Alexander" and "Blu Aardvark" or, laughably, accountability queen "qwerty" -- a man who spends his days hunting people down on the interwebnet but doesn't have the guts to say "this is who I am and where I am", another hypocrite, who when called, I note, banned me from the board he was spouting his bullshit about "accountability" on, but I do not believe at all it should be unlimited and do not pretend I do. If "Igor" had the balls to bleat at me in my comments, rather than from his board, which he has excluded me from, I would be sure to deny him the right to speak. I simply don't care what Nazis have to say.
So why even bother going to their site? Well, apparently, it's my birthday. I wanted to see whether they had bought me a cake. Miserable bastids haven't though. Not even a round of For he's a jolly good fellow. Sigh.
