kitties top troll TROOOLLLL!!

Vote Now for Man Boobz Troll of the Year! UPDATE: POLLS CLOSE EARLY

catsvoting

UPDATE: THE POLLS ARE CLOSED. Polldaddy pulled a little switcheroo on me, so I’ve got to pull a little switcheroo on you. I thought it was free, but it turns out that once you get more than 200 responses to a survey in any given month, you have to pay them $200 for a year’s memebership in order to see the rest of the results. Yikes! So I’m just closing the polls instead, and will announce the winners tomorrow. If it’s any consolation, all the winners won by large margins, so I doubt there would have been any upsets if I kept the polls open longer.

And the polls are open! Vote for Man Boobz Troll of the Year, and any of the other special awards you wish to vote for.

The polls will remain open until January 1, when I will write up the results and declare the official winners!

Feel free to campaign for your favorites in the comments below.

I’m torn on ToTY – Steele’s ten page rants, or Joe claiming that my existing while non-binary supports nazism?!

Steele’s butchering of English might win this one.

SunshineMary, Tom Martin, DtC, and John Anderson for the rest, respectively. You’re trying too hard talacaris.

Hmm…Steele or Joe?!

STEELE! STEELE! STEELE! STEELE!

Imagine me with my face painted half blue and half gold with a giant VYLE flag and a #1 foam finger.

The real test, of course, will be the performance after the award. NWO was so overwhelmed he could maintain the level of art he had established in the course of prior years.

I remember, but Joe really pissed me off that day. Of course, it was one day, versus months of aggravation.

I love so much that Tom Martin thinks that Beyoncé’s lyrics are LITERALLY about her life. Like she genuinely doesn’t think you’re in any way ready for her jelly.

Does no one else think DKM is the best troll??? I found his ideas of a segregated “utopia” where “sweet old fashioned girls” only served men as strippers and prostitutes more amusing than Tom Martin’s fixation on the word “whore”.

Joe claiming that my existing while non-binary supports nazism?!

Wat.

Wat.

The Nazis loved the binary! They even made the binary even more binary, because they loved it so much!

DKM is certainly a contender. I think his candidacy is suffering from his lack of recent activity. I think he is more interesting than Tom Marti in that his worldview is more complete, and his working of his racisms into his sexisms is more wholistic.

That he doesn’t see how much his Gorean Fantasies are played out in his Mellibertopia is one of his charms. But lately his frustration seems to be keeping him to the limited role of stalking old threads in the hope of slipping in the last word so he can claim, “VICTORY!!!!!!”, rather than have to suffer the ignominy of stalking in, telling is, “how it is” and having to leave with his ass on a plate, after lots of women and, mewling excuses for men, have handed it to him

“The Nazis loved the binary! They even made the binary even more binary, because they loved it so much!”

Feminism was founded by nazis and the existence of trans* / non-cis people is a feminist idea, thus anyone “claiming” to be non-binary has bought some feminist delusion and supports nazis by extension. Or something similar to that (want to explain it again Joe?)

Needless to say, I stopped listened since I was seeing red. (And hi again! Glad to see you’re still around after my hiatus.)

I think I’ve said it before, but for me David K. Meller is really on a whole other level than most of the trolls here. I really have to wonder how he functions in the ‘real’ world . Yes, Tom Martin is pretty foul (especially his views on child prostitution), but I can see him interacting with people, maybe some people agrreing with his basic beliefs. I can’t imagine anyone I know not being shocked/horrified/amused at reading Meller’s posts. The funniest thing is that he’s convinced everyone else is disturbed rather than him. He hasn’t been around much lately though, it seems. Wonder where he is? One day his time as troll of the year wil come…

Meller was my vote last year, but he just isn’t current enough to be a contender now, IMO.

*de lurk* It was a tough choice between Steele and Meller for me. Had to give it to Steele for consistency in posting though, Meller hasn’t posted for a while has he? But he had such an intriguing (ahem) worldview.

I spent far too much time pondering/worrying about how he functions in the real world.

>>>Jose’s rejection of zie/zir & xie, is over here

This is such a common line of argument that there should be a named fallacy for those who don’t understand that in 1984, Newspeak was about the destruction of old words, not the creation of new ones. That the point was to disallow any possibility of nuance. Something is good or ungood, with plus or doubleplus for emphasis… there is no ‘evil’, ‘evil’ is just anything ungood… Presumably ‘woman’ as a word would also disappear, there would be ‘man’ and ‘unman’, because if ‘woman’ is not simply the inverse of ‘man’ there is the possibility of a non-binary kept inside the mind of people. If anything, Insoc would not create ‘zie’, it would eliminate ‘she’.

Argument ad Orwell? You could also apply it to people who use it to attack socialists in general rather than Stalinists and other totalitarians, or who think Orwell was a conservative right-winger.

And I say again – with this being so – it is YOU (that is, Boobzland) who were adopting an Orwellian stance when you refused to recognize that “misandry” could have more than one definition. It is YOU who are the suppressors; feminists who primarily seek to control language. Contemptible.

But you won’t recognize that, because you’re a dishonest coward and a feminist scumbag.

For me, TOTY is a close call between Tom Martin and Steele, but I think Martin’s appearances here are simply much more monumental than Steele’s. The former is like a nuclear meltdown that eats its way to the planet’s core, while the latter is like a ghost that has to run away once you learn its name. They both have their merits, but the sheer memorability of Martin settles it.

I’m surprised more people haven’t said they’re giving Driversuz the Snowflake—her letter to random college women is, like, a blizzard of special snowflakes.

Also, there needs to be another category: Most Clueless. Most of the trolls are pretty clueless, but I think that someone like Otis the Sweaty, who made basic mistakes with pretty much every statement he tried to make, would take that particular cake.

OT, but I think the regulars would find this roundup of psychic predictions for 2012 to be interesting and amusing:

Wow, I see there are actually trolls on a thread about TROLLS. That’s hardcore.

Also, um, yeah – the Nazis were reactionaries who were ALL ABOUT THE BINARY GENDER ROLES. This is historical fact.

I like it. Odds of me getting yelled at for using it IRL are high, my father is one of those “all communists are evil” people (of course he is)

Heheh can you imagine how TM would go trying to talk to anyone who doesn’t share his beliefs, though? He’d get one conversation (probably a brief one) per person if he throws in the W word as often as he did here, or started on about penguins and chairs. People would be edging away in no time.

Steele, stop whining, you prat, you’re getting votes without a last-minute push.

My favorite comment is this one.

Or in Steele’s case, non cogito ergo sum.

Bring up a character map, or use a Unicode chart.

I want to adopt Steele so much, but then he goes and says that “having sex” with drunk people isn’t rape and that feminists pretending it is leads to women in India getting gang raped to death and I’m like “Nope, does not want.”

I voted you troll of the year, Steele. Why would you do this to me? :'(
