My irony meter, that is. So sometime today, some dude rolls into Tam’s blog at the linked post and leaves a set of odious comments. He starts off as “Anonymous”, because the courage of his convictions is obviously so strong that he needs to hide behind the internet. To his (small) credit, he did man up later and post more comments under his handle, which is Tom. Tom said some stuff that was not smart, and even posted his email address, which he has since removed. Here’s a pretty classic sample, with the bad word redacted.
How did the redhead learn to be a nice person and you [Tam] became such a c***?
Now, so he’s obviously established what a classy cat he is. This is part where I do my best Scotty impersonation, because my irony meter just canna take much more of this. Here’s a post from Ol’ Tom bemoaning the rudeness of people on the internet. I am not making this up.
Funny how people send insulting comments anyway when explicitly told they won’t be published. No cure for stupid, is there? But there is. Comments are off. You’d be better suited to Anonymously write your own blog than to send me random insults or perhaps learn some couth. Both?
I lol’d, then I lol’d some more. I mean, you almost have to admire the balls on a guy that would write this, then a month later roll over to someone else’s place and do exactly what he was crying about. I say almost, because I can’t admire that lack of self-recognition.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE: See, it seems our wee little friend wrote a post just for Tam’s readers that were coming over to hand him his lunch. Again, I need to redact the naughty words, because while we’re all grown ups, this blog is also where I work. But presented for your enjoyment:
YOU GOT A SPECIAL F*** YOU AND THE WHORES YOU RODE IN ON POST FOR CLOGGING UP MY MODERATING BOX DEFENDING A C*** WHO IS BORDERLINE TRAITOR TO AMERICA AND NO HERO IN THE SHOOTING SPORTS.
I can’t get enough of it, I really can’t. He is both the funniest troll ever, and the worst troll ever. If you’re wondering why I took time away from my usual gun and shooting sports blogging to poke this guy with a stick, well there are a couple of reasons. First off is that Tam is actually my friend, and I disapprove of people talking about my friends like that. Secondly though is that it really is that funny. I mean, this guy has gone completely around the bend. He seems to think that somewhere Tam has claimed to be a “hero” in the shooting sports, or some kind of IPSC Grand Master, and he just can’t deal with the fact that someone would call him on his BS. It’s so freakin’ awesome to watch his antics spiral deeper into lunancy.
Remember kids: INTERNET=SERIOUS BUSINESS.
