1. He posted frequently on the 'guns' forum
Donor (or did someone give him the star?)

In either case, good riddance and pass the :popcorn: says I

36. Yeah, there is a gun forum.
He posted a bit in there, and I remember a few of his posts on the death penalty, and other than that, I hardly saw any input from him on any other subject....the gun forum is interesting, to say the least.

3. That's what I was just coming to tell you guys.
:popcorn:

Did you know who he was before now? I don't even remember his post. :shrug:

It's pretty sad when you're not even a memorable poster and you out yourself as a mole.

45. I remember one or two of them.
But they didn't make much sense at the time. Now I know *why.*

5. I remember debating him on several issues involving Wal-Mart...
He, of course, especially considering his now confession, was on their side, period, no discussion. Given his attitude about that and other issues, he seemed, to me, to be a troll, in fact, he seemed a lot like Carlos, I don't know if you remember him, one of the old timers here could probably tell you all about him. He was a fun debater, and claimed to be a Libertarian with a capital L. Outed as a Repuke troll, no surprise there.

7. I remember Carlos
and I've got about 45 more on my "ignore" list that I have similar suspicions about. Silverhair wasn't that special. :boring:

29. Sometimes they aren't even worth getting excited about
DU is an open book. Always has been. It isn't hidden or a super secret society like Hannity Boner's forum is (of which there were about 150 active posters before I left there in 2004). So for them to come here and play "mole" is simply wetarded and just a truckload short of a Brazillion.

Or in plain Freeplish, moranic. :shrug:

9. I don't remember Carlos
But then I've only been here a year this month (as of the 26th).


I don't understand the cheap thrills the freepers get being moles here. I have far better things to do with my time than pretend to be something I'm not on a message board just so I can run back to another message board and brag about it. Do they really think that what they are doing is something important that's going to change the course of life or history?

12. I don't understand them either...
but I love outing the bastards though. I remember one time, on one thread, Me, Commie Pinko Dirtbag, and I thing Guy Whitey Corngood were able to eliminate about 3 or 4, one or two low post ones, and another two long time posters. I love seeking these bastards out and forcing them to blow their top, at least the ones who "infiltrate" and don't just disrupt, though I will say that that is just a matter of time till they would be outted. I have 0 people on my ignore list, I view it as a sport of sorts, its all cool.

30. Yeah, sort of.
Trolls who pretend to be something they're not (like Democrats or progressive people) and pass as DUers are moles. Some are better at it than others (and for some reason, they seem to think we'll care!)

Honestly, I don't get the attraction...I mean, how sad and empty would someone's life have to be if they thought that was a worthwhile pursuit? Geez, really...volunteer somewhere or something!

31. It is a sign of mental disease.
Sort of like Penis Envy (which they probably do have anyway) except that they envy every part of our lives.

39. I don't know, Ben.
It doesn't feel like envy--it seems like schoolyard stuff to me.

I have a student, a sweet six-year-old Vietnamese kid, who loves to write out answers to questions I ask and then pretend he hasn't finished writing. He then triumphantly presents his work and announces, "Ha, ha! I fooled you!" Over and over and over.
That's what I feel when we get these outings...it's so tiresome.


From adults, though, it's just sad. These folks, somehow, have stones buried in their souls--they'd rather spend their lives pretending at a life that's a lie.

What a waste!

44. You know, I actually learned about DU from a freeper troll.
And he fits your description *exactly.* It's quite sad. He seemed to think what he was doing was really funny.

Now, every so often, I want to shout "Ahah! I know it's you." So you know there are more of them lurking about.

Like you, I honestly don't understand why someone would waste their time. And this OP was over 1000+!!!

Effing freeptards. :freak:

So trolls wouldn't post as liberal / Dems right?

40. Sure.
But trolls do post as liberals--they're just considered moles when they dedicate time to pretending to be something they're not for whatever sad little reason they have. They actually try to blend in here and, at the same time, sow dissent. I do wish those folks would use their time to do something useful.

And post-counts really don't mean much--anyone can get over 1000 posting next to nothing. In the end, though, it's their own time and energy they're wasting.

26. I fucking had him PEGGED as a freeper.
He was peddling some outrageous lies about the agenda of the Christian Right. Claimed to be an AOG minister. As if I were going to believe that one of them could be a Democrat.

42. 0007 said "Foiled Again, Silverhair!" in a thread about a month ago.
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 03:37 AM by Hissyspit
LOL

I mainly just thought Silverhair's posts were stupid, annoying or off-point.
