I believe there are many excellent intellectually stimulating daytime television programmes covering important topics such as how to con old ladies out of their savings or how to go about sueing your own children for ruining your sex life, among other vital and current issues.

Good call to the mods for this one. I genuinely had no idea what his wobbly screens were supposed to be, plus some of the music sounded like it was from an early 80's kids TV program about eastern European folk mythology!! All very random.

If this had been like WoS there would have been angry mob with flaming torches and pitchforks straight round his gaf after his second post :lol: :lol:

He had a good run.

Finally. I was starting to believe the mods were afraid of taking action for fearing “This is becoming WOS” comments. Don’t worry mods, you’ll be put to the test again and again.

For me the problem is less the people on WOS, it's the bloody forum software. It's sh*te.

Or, common or garden LSD will probably do the trick pretty well too.

Troll awards so far then:

(Inaugural season) 2017-2018 - Mr Pixel
2018 - 2019 - d2010

Look forward then to seeing next years winner, though hoping not to add my name to the list.

You can say that again. :? I rarely get mention notifications nowadays. I’m sure people think I’m rude for ignoring them.

I received several nonsense pm's from him and he even posted at Planeta Sinclair. I failed to understand most of his posts and messages, but I guess he failed as well... :lol:

He probably has some kind of mental problem and in the recent days he had some peak of it.

My personal opinion is that we shouldn't call him a troll, a troll for me is a person consciously and willingly
making some havoc and here he was completely lost.

Now I feel bad. Perhaps d2010 did have some issues I should be more empathetic about (I don't know), I just have trouble believing that someone like Mr Pixel could lack enough self-awareness to be posting the sort of facile crap he was. It also seems a bit odd to me that two users who didn't overlap in their membership periods have the same M.O., which seems to be post crap and divert attention from the good stuff on here. But maybe I'm just paranoid!

Which doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you. ;)
