Don't feed the trolls

Hey everyone, this is just a friendly reminder to not feed trolls in the comments.

I’m “privileged” to now be trolled by the infamous DM/Dennis Markuze/David Mabus/nostradamus/etc, a literally insane Canadian that is fond of leaving crazed rambling and death threats on atheist blogs. Between my honors thesis, classes, and clubs, I don’t have time to fiddle with a new comment moderation. So until I’m able to do that, please ignore him and I’ll continue to delete his comments. I don’t want threads getting derailed because you guys want to respond to him.

In other news…I dunno, consider this an open thread.

    Coulda tole ya…wait, I did. ;o)In other news, I found George Carlin’s synopsis of what evolution of the brain really entails.

    Canadian who isn’t polite. Check. One more stereotype down the drain.Next on the list: a gay black man who can’t dance.

    Technically, I can ascribe the fact that he’s from Montreal (and thus, French) as being a testament to the stereotype of traditional French rudeness/Quebecois drunkenness. As a Canadian, I apologize for writing this post if you feel it was in any way insufficient or blandly written.

    @JT I actually know one of those. It’s quite funny because he recognizes the stereotype and prides himself at smashing through it with all three left feet :)

    I can’t wait to get spammed by Markuze! That’s when you know you’ve really made it :)

    Troll Food appears to be mashed chicken, with an entire bone stuck in the top. I’m not sure, but I think that would taste awful. ;p

    You know… I start thinking that I am glad I’m a Canadian where atheism/agnostisism and separation of church and state are more publicly respected than they seem to be throughout much of the states… and then… you get Canadian trolls, Stephen Harper (http://bit.ly/ai5rRo), and Klu Klux worthy behaviour in Nova Scotia and a commenter on the article supporting it (http://bit.ly/9TCSKq, http://bit.ly/ai5rRo http://bit.ly/9N4lbZ)*sigh* I guess people are people everywhere…

    I’ve been Markuzed a couple of times. He seems to employ a strange rolling-wave form of spam, where he adds new screed to the top of his posts and allows some things to dribble off the end. He’s mildly amusing for a few hours, but he’s pretty much a one-trick pony. He did threaten another blogger, Skippy, that he would basically crawl out of his TV and kill him, like the creepy chick in The Ring…
