McCain Decries "Hobbits," Accused of Ringbearing

Arthur Grumbine Re:Smeagol (722 comments)

So you're saying that the US founding fathers - all well-educated and almost all well-heeled, many slave owners - in establishing laws that were significantly preferential to land-owners, were all the time rebelling against a thin layer of rich aristocracy with poor peasants underneath" ?!?

When you said "US founding fathers" did you actually mean "USSR founding fathers"?

Predictions of the Future...From the 1960s

Arthur Grumbine Re:Arthur C Clarke: Profiles of the Future.... 196 (278 comments)

Yeah, just like that - except you don't have to spend 10+ minutes in travel time just to skim the pages of a single book your interested in. And Amazon is open before 11am and after 5pm. But besides that, yeah, just like a local independent bookshop.

Wow. My first experience of a grudgebearer on /.

Arthur Grumbine Arthur Grumbine writes  |  more than 5 years ago First journal entry just to give some folks an idea of the kind of awesomely-vehement sentiment that can exist in the /. mods.

As of this moment this post is -1 Troll with 32 replies. It had previously been at '5, Insightful'. I wasn't trying to troll...
Also of note (from that same thread/article):
These posts all got modded Troll within minutes of each other.

It's actually kind of amusing to see someone childishly develop a vendetta against me because of my posts (which can be satirical). It's also annoying. But I guess mocking so many /. groups in one go is bound have its repercussions.
