Yo, we got our first IRC Troll

Yo, we got our first IRC Troll

Post by GeorgeTheWarp » 25 Jul 2016, 01:08

You thought OpenMW was immune to human stupidity and insensitivity toward open source project? Of course not. We had a guy running around asking question about the vanilla engine in the OpenMW channel. While I recommended he plays his first playthrough of Morrowind vanilla, he used this as an argument that OpenMW people should know the vanilla engine and that it was all my fault if he thought he could easily play through MGO with OpenMW. Here's the full conversation:

EDIT: I still don't get how I was not able to ignore the poor guy, TBH. But I am enlightened, from this chat.

I think he was shut down by this, immediately following the previous piece of the IRC log. I heard nothing from him after this.

Trump has to be fairly clever to actually convince about half of US voters to actually vote him. Otherwise it means a whole nation is a bunch of idiots.

About the topic, I am not American and a I am quite old school, so please bear with me; how do you distinguish between a troll and a good old idiot?

In Stalin's era, we called them useful idiots. :) Everyone has a purpose, even those that are wrong.

I'd say he's a better vote than someone who's entire career has been nothing but using the power given to her by US citizens for personal gain, ideally it would have been Trump vs Sanders either one was a victory, both of them were against the way that corporate interests have their hands firmly up almost all politicians backsides.

Moved it to "Off topic" subforum as this topic is going around politics (it's more suitable there imho).
best regards,
