Math Is Hard so when I read stuff like that it makes me laugh. I even burned a mod point to enforce its funniness.

What burns me are the overrated mod. No metamod to punish the modbombers, no way to adjust my view to ignore the mod.

Yeah. Moderation has its issues.

But I still find it amusing that I can cause so many people to mod me. :-) I'm not anywhere the top of that game, but I'm trying. Some trolls go for replies. Some trolls go for mods. I find the mods for amusing because of the waste.

it's a funny troll (1)

but i think it deserves the funny mod because troll is always "bad."

science friction? like snivilisation? i think i'm going to listen to that now.
