Cable TV A La Carte Part 2

Mighty-Troll bullshit (245 comments)

Idiot.

The $10/mo fee is FCC REGULATED. The cable company has to provide a signal, and, maintain it to FCC STANDARDS so your cable internet will work.

If they wanted to jew you out of more money they increase the INTERNET fee and not the CABLE TRANSPORT fee.

This has nothing to do with price inflation due to cable theives.

This has nothing to do with price inflation due to the customer splitting it off to his graphics card or TV and then complaing why his internet is sporadic, and it sucks, and said customer is a fucking moron for not knowing that its because of his hookup, and the cable company can not control how said connection works.

This has nothing to do jewing you out of more money.

It's dumbfucks like you that don't realize that if you want Internet service you need to pay someone to maintaini the pipeline.

It's dumbfucks like you that probably also would expect a DSL company to not charge you for a phone line (it has to be active for the DSL to work, same way you have to pay a cable company to maintain a cable signal to your house).

It's dumbfucks like you that scourge this earth and I think should be either shot in the head or have your balls cuttoff, so we can do mankind a favor.

Go jump out of a moving vehicle or something.

The goatse project

Mighty-Troll Mighty-Troll writes  |  more than 11 years ago

Was thinking about writing (or modifing an existing one) a proxy that will route all www traffic to goatse.cx

Would you, fellow trolls, be interested in such a powerful tool?

and ...

Making a website that uses an activeX control for poorly configured IE users to set that and activate it? (What would the legal implications of this be?)

SLC Punk

Mighty-Troll Mighty-Troll writes  |  more than 11 years ago I finally saw SLC Punk for the first time. It sucked. After seeing Sid and Nancy, Suburbia (No, not the 90s movie you asshole, the one about punks that was filmed in the 80s), Decline of western civilization, etc, I can't beleive this fucking corporate drivel that comes out of Hollywood.

Is this a troll? What the fuck. I hate fucking Canadians.

Mighty-Troll Mighty-Troll writes  |  more than 12 years ago Take a look at this post. It looks like a valid comment to me. One minute I was posting at Score 1, then just because I don't have a homosexual, boring, unix-style slashdot user id (i.e., mine has the word 'troll' in it), it gets modded down to Score 0, Troll.

Now I'm posting at -1 instead of 1. What the fuck is this? Am I going to have to wait until my karma whore accounts get mod points again and randomly mod down good posts as Score -1, Overrated ? Where the fuck is that Canadian peice of shit who modded me down because the only shot at gold in the Olympics fell through?

Goatse.cx man's identity revealed

Mighty-Troll Mighty-Troll writes  |  more than 12 years ago 53:00 Execution

Barnes turns his attention on the other villagers, his intentions apparent. Everybody feels them. They're next. Barnes is unperturbed, very much in command of the situation, no rage, no emotions expressed.

Chris has never seen such a thing in his life- but can't react. Can't stop it, just watches it like he's not quite there.

The same goes for Lieutenant Wolfe, for all of them. They very outrageousness of Barnes' killing seems to quell all protest.

ACE (sensing the impending massacre) Hey Sarge can we get in on this.

Tony advances, the hairy Italian kid from Boston.

TONY Let's go all the way, let's go for it! Let's do the whole fucking village. Come on, Sarge!

Chris' eyes... Rodriguez next to him, neutral but willing.

Francis is hesitant.

Fu Sheng and Junior are ready to go for it. Lt. Wolfe is powerless, frozen.

The Villagers know it, kneel in prayer, mutter.

Barnes suddenly grabs and drags a young 19 year-old Woman, the Village Chief's daughter, across the pen, throws her down on her knees, in front of the stunned Village Chief. She is screaming.

BARNES This is his daughter, right?

Lerner nods. Barnes pulls his .45, puts it alongside her head.

BARNES (to the Village Chief) You lie... You Vee Cee...I caca dao Vee Cee!

He chambers the .45, the Woman begging Barnes for her life, cradling his knees. He sticks the gun down above her skull.

Chris wanting to cry out, to do something- but can't!

ELIAS BARNES!!!

Barnes looks around. They all look around.

Elias walks right up to him, followed by his men- King, Rhah, Crawford, others form the rear party. He looks around. The corpse of the Wife...the Young Daughter sobbing.

ELIAS WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING!

BARNES (pissed) Stay out of this Elias. This ain't your show.

ELIAS YOU AIN'T A FIRING SQUAD, YOU PIECE OF SHIT!!

The mock of his riffle swings up fast and hard smacking Barnes full in the face, breaking two teeth.

Barnes staggers back, hurt, bleeding. Elias is on him like a leopard. Battering him with his fists.

They struggle in the dust, two titans, their faces equally consumed with rage, clawing, spitting, punching, kicking, pounding each other's skulls in the dirt. A dust storm swirls around them, the men closing around like excited apes at a bloodfeast.

Most of the men seem to be pulling for Barnes- Chris just watching, neutral.

LT. WOLFE BREAK IT UP! ELIAS! BARNES!

But they both roll on, smashing each other's faces in. Both quick, fast, agile, mean fighters. Sgts. O'Neill and Warren drag them apart.

Wolfe and Big Harold jump in, hold them apart.

BARNES You're dead, you're fucking dead Elias!

ELIAS YOU- you're going to fuckin' jail, buddy, you ain't getting away with this one!!!!!

WOLFE All right! All right! All right!!! NOW BREAK IT UP. LET'S GO...

Platoon wins academy award

Mighty-Troll Mighty-Troll writes  |  more than 11 years ago Platoon has won Academy Award. The movie, winning Best Picture in 1987 has won other awards as well - including Best Director (Oliver Stone), Best Film Editing (Claire Simpson; no relation to The Simpsons), and Best Sound.

There were other nominations as well - Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Willem Dafoe and Tom Berenger), Best Cinematography (Robert Richardson) and Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen.

Like no other movie could tell, Platoon shows us categorically that war -- and especially the Vietnam War -- is hell.

The story is vintage Oliver Stone -- based on his own experiences in the bush with only a few moments of fictionalization. In Platoon, Charlie Sheen plays a young and naive Private Chris Taylor, a newbie in Nam who is thrown waist-deep into the jungle only hours after arrival. Within a week he's regretting having volunteered, already a shell of the man he was in the States.

Charlie's great and all, but Platoon's thrill is in its supporting cast, namely Tom Berenger as a rather evil yet invincible Staff Sargeant, and Willem Dafoe as the unforgettably moral Sargeant Elias. When Berenger and Elias spar, it's epic acting -- and as Stone details on a commentary track, it's a bit ironic since up until this film, Berenger had always played good guys (a la The Big Chill) and Dafoe had always played terrorists. Dafoe, of course, would go on to play Jesus Christ.

Platoon also plays host to a cadre of then-unknown supporting players, including Johnny Depp, Forest Whitaker, and John C. McGinley (also in a celebrated role as the cowardly bully of the platoon), but it's Stone's unflinching script that makes this film ever so sobering. The Pentagon wanted nothing to do with it, claiming its brutality was "unrealistic," but technical advisor Captain Dale Dye helped Stone ensure this movie is the most accurate depiction of the war in Vietnam that you'll ever see. Both Stone and Dye have commentary tracks on the new DVD; Stone does his usual narration of the film ("...the VC fires! It's confusing! Oh, that's a good shot...") while Dye goes into the minutaie of every military detail you see.

Highly recommended as one of Stone's greatest works.

The best quote of course has to be:

You all take a good look at this lump of shit, remember what it looks like. You fuck up in a firefight and I goddamned guarantee you a trip out of the bush - in a body bag! Out here, assholes, you keep the shit wired tight at all times. And that goes for you, shit-for-brains. You don't sleep on no fucking ambush. And the next son'bitch I catch coppin Z's in the bush, I personally am gonna take an interest in seeing them suffer. I shit you not. Doc, tag 'em and bag 'em.

However my friends and I usually quote:

It ain't D-E-R-E, it's D-E-A-R. And "Sarah" ain't got no two R's, King. Damn you're dumb.

It don't make no difference, she know what I mean. She don't read too good nohow.


Mighty-Troll is going to lobby congress to fund a sub-comittee to enforce weekly viewings of this movie in all publicly-funded schools across America.

In space, no one can hear you scream.

Mighty-Troll Mighty-Troll writes  |  more than 12 years ago For some reason unknown to me, I have been silenced again. I hadn't done anything wrong, I mean why censor me again when you got idiots out there crapflooding random numbers or movie quotes or fake celebrity death posts.

Slashdot needs a special no holds barred SID. A sort of alt.troll for slashdot. Does anyone remember way back in the day when most of slash was written by CmdrTaco and it was SO buggy, you could post inline images into comments? You goatse.cx or fecaljapan is bad, man I must have seen a million posts of black men hanging in trees. You could also leave open html tags and make the rest of the page in huge, bold letters or use the flash tag.

As a show of support against censorship I beg all of you to contact the eff, or at the very least, let CmdrTaco know that censorship is unjust. It is my birth-right to troll slashdot.

Mighty-Troll gets hated on

Mighty-Troll Mighty-Troll writes  |  more than 12 years ago Well, once I got my default pr0sting to score +0 instead of score -1 off at the bat, someone had to go off and hate on me. They methodically followed my previous posts and modded them down for that sole purpose.

It's funny how trolls aren't the only ones that can abuse the moderation system. Basically someone followed some previous comments that were modded up and modden them down again. It was probably Maynard, he needs something to do to make himself feel better (besides masturbation with dogs).

Day in the life of a Troll

Mighty-Troll Mighty-Troll writes  |  more than 12 years ago 6:00am
Alarm goes off. Still dreaming, my mind is still spinning, searching itself for brilliant material to add my troll posts.

6:42am
Hit snooze button for last time, awake again and onto my feet. First thing is to light up a smoke and check Slashdot for any change in Karma, or messages of any kind. Hate/Fan mail is checked with known associated addresses to Slashdot/k5/Usenet, etc.

8:01am
At work. Read latest stories - any latest antics by fellow trolls. There are others out there that understand the enemy and what must be done. To provoke an emotional response out of just plain text is an amazing thing to do. We are puppet masters. Manipulating the strings of the likes of Maynard, or perhaps any old "joe worker" or who has strong beliefs. I may agree with many of their idealisms, but out there it doesn't matter. Any form of a response and I have won.

9:32am
Reading several news sites. Staying in touch with current events is very important for a troll. You must know the facts so you can distort them and get them factually incorrect for use in future troll posts.

11:50am
After return of a cigarette break, many ideas have flowed. I see a few angry responses, but not enough. I go over to k5 and use up all of the 'moderate submission' posts. I find the nicest, informative posts that are gramatically correct and properly spelled with nice use of HTML tags. k5 users like these kinds of posts. I give them all the lowest possible score.

1:00pm
Lunch break. I'm sitting somewhere eating and thinking of what I can do to sir more things up. I realize with a name such as 'Mighty-Troll' most people won't bother. I know I soon have to turn my positive karma accounts on slashdot over to the dark-side. I must do this with much subtlety. The goal here is cause chaos, high noise-signal ratio. Most people just ignore anything written from a "troll". It also doesnt help when you post at -1 to begin with.

3:26pm
Usenet. This is where my roots come from. I remember trolling Fidonet and Usenet since far back as '93. I don't remember the term 'troll' then. I guess we were called 'flame-baiters' then. I need to see if I can't google some of my old beauties out there, possibly archived still. Trolling slashdot is fun, because it is more of a community type setup, but with a targeted audience. Making fun of Linux isn't always fun anymore. Usenet is where the payday is. Abusing slashdot just can't compare with reaching out to the masses on Usenet. To be a king of subtlety will surely make you a high troll on Usenet (many people still aren't expecting lame posts, fp's don't exist, and they are just worried about spam usually).

6:01pm
Back home from work. Check more messages/email and mod down intelligent posts on k5, use my karma farms to mod up anything that was modded down on slashdot from this account. I'll sometimes mod down a Score 5, Informative post to a Score 4, Troll just because I think it's funny. We all know the Meta-Moderation system is broken and worthless. Many beers are consumed during this process.

10:35pm
Typical week night and I just stay in and watch IFC or Tech TV. If it's a Friday or Saturday then thats a whole 'nother journal entry (stay tuned sometime soon for some crazy antics of a troll on the weekend. We're the worst kind). Bedtime approaches soon and visions of Trolls dance around my head.

Mighty-Troll takes a dump

Mighty-Troll Mighty-Troll writes  |  more than 12 years ago After a night of heavy drinking at the bars and various houses, Mighty-Troll woke up feeling very wierd.

"It wasn't the hangover - I know what that is, but I had this strange feeling in my abdomen."

Mighty-Troll is refering to what would soon be the first shit he has ever taken.

"I just ran for the toilet, and instictively had to just, sit down on it. At first it was a horrible, nasty feeling."
Mighty-Troll was talking about the sensation of sitting on the base of the toilet - the seat was left up. MT not having any experience with toilets did not know to put the seat down first and had the unfortunate experience of sitting on piss and pubic hairs and who knows what else.

"Fuck! Man that was disgusting dude! Before I could do anything else I had this weird sensation pass through me as this pile of brown stuff that really smelled alot and had what appeared to be peanuts in it. I don't remember eating peanuts last night."

The pile of brown stuff that smelled really bad was what we all know of as feces. The waste our body expunges from the system from time to time. It is said that most humans do it once daily - some that weigh over 300lbs. may do it as many as 3 times daily.

There is no known reason why Mighty-Troll had never taken a shit before, but he is in good spirits.

"Wow that was kinda fun man. Next time I'll remember to put the seat down, and thanks to a good tip from my roomate I know what toilet paper really is for now and I'll use some of that next time."

It is rumoured that Mighty-Troll thought toilet paper was there originally for people such as the slashdot editors who frequently circle-jerk, up to 3 times a day.

Resources for us Proud, Few, Trolls

Mighty-Troll Mighty-Troll writes  |  more than 12 years ago After being extremely bored at work and looking for more resources to sharpen my skills and broaden my vast knowledge of Trolling, I have came up with a few links to help us out. These are more USENET related, as I was always a better usenet/fidonet troll myself, much better success then at slashdot.

Here is a good one for a few ideas. This one is a classic - I have it bookmarked. And finally, you can read what the other side has to say about dealing with us. Lots of great ideas here.

Fucking cheap bastard slashdot puke editors

Mighty-Troll Mighty-Troll writes  |  more than 12 years ago My IP was banned (of course), so I figure it's a typical 72-hour ban. WRONG. Fuck this I say, so I switch to a static IP on a completely different subnet, try a nice decent post and get this:

Due to excessive bad posting from this IP or Subnet, comment posting has temporarily been disabled. If it's you, consider this a chance to sit in the timeout corner. If it's someone else, this is a chance to hunt them down. If you think this is unfair, please email jamie@mccarthy.vg.

What the fuck? Either they banned 24.124.* entirely (thousands of users) or they banned my account(s). Censorship is wrong. When the fuck are these cocksuckers going to realize that? How hypocritical is this. People can set their thresholds high if they want to or set me as foe if they don't want to see my posts. I feel like I should make an appeal to the EFF. Everytime I see a rant by a crapdot editor about censorship I'm gonna rush out to every proxy from every major ISP I can find and crap-flood the fuck out of slashdot and see how many ISP's will be BANNED.

Silenced.. Again!

Lobbying /.

Mighty-Troll Mighty-Troll writes  |  more than 12 years ago After unjustly getting negative karma, I will be contacting fellow trolls and other users of slashdot to give my posting to a +1 again.

In the meantime it is imperative that everyone adds me as a friend as to see my post, the bane of slashdot will occurr if no one can see my posts - how else will it survive without me?

I fear I have to use my 30+ Karma accounts to mod up my posts on this one!
