Man.. the NY Times must be pretty damn good to cover such a prestigious topic..

I like this part:

"Rules would be simple: 1. Do whatever it takes to get lulz. 2. Make sure the lulz is widely distributed. This will allow for more lulz to be made. 3. The game is never over until all the lulz have been had.”


I thought Rule #1 was "Don't talk about the lulz."

I think there's a line here that shouldn't be crossed. Torturing blowhards on the internet? Very funny. Torturing people who are grieving? Not funny.

This article was pretty good up until the end when the author started proposing Orwellian measures to stop troling. :roll:

I am amazed that there are people like the guy with the limo who goes from apartment to apartment and claims to have billions of dollars, and wants to kill 2 thirds of the earth's population. That seems like the kind of thing the government would want to shut down. If it wasn't the new york times I would be calling bullshit without hesitation.

That's what I've been doing. I have been putting nano-machines into your bloodstream and testicles. Why the testicles? Because you fuckin' perverts keep thinking the disk drive is a blow-up doll.
