I think I spotted a troll-like lifeform posting on the website of a local newspaper...
There is a story on DenverPost.com talking about how snow is expected here in Colorado before the Thanksgiving holiday, as well as talking about the recent unusually warm weather in the state and lack of snow in the mountains. Now, there's no mention that I saw in the article of anything about global warming, just that temperatures in the state have been about 10 degrees warmer than is usual for this time of month.

So, check out the first comment near the bottom of the page:

Ah, Freepers. Will they EVER tire of their George-Soros-Is-Somehow-Running-The-Country ridiculousness? :eyes:

1. I love your description of the letter writer!
A troll-like lifeform, indeed. We have two or three of them who write letters to the editor of our local paper, too.

2. Out of sheer curiosity, I explored his profile on DP.com...
His posts, all 14 of them, are talking about global warming being a hoax, George Soros somehow funding the lie, all children and homeless people having health care, and immigration craziness.

Folks, I think we got us a Freeper!

:rofl:

Somebody with the ability to cram that many Repuke talking points into a few sentences has a LOT of practice.

5. This "no global warming " crowd should be shunned somehow
I'm so tired of their anti-science attitude, whether it be denying climate change or trying to impose a religous belief as science. These poor tools are everywhere , and somewhere a huge corporation's board of directors is laughing.

7. I'd say that's a pretty decent reason to report them.
:rofl:

8. I know a special freeper
who starts at least one or two hate posts every day on one of my favorite hobby boards. His obsession with Soros is hilarious. When a thread starts going badly for him, he'll accuse his opponent of being a "Paid Soros Troll". Never mind that no more than 5 or 6 people are even reading those posts and that the other individual had been posting on-topic non-political stuff for a couple of years.

Lord, he must think Soros has a million paid trolls out there stalking him personally.

9. Sometimes I wonder if every Soros-obsessed Freeper thinks that.
Maybe they think we've ALL been paid off by George Soros.

10. I'll check with my 57 "Soros Sock Puppets"
And get back to you with a consesus... Yep, they all agree and want a raise.

:+

Meanwhile, I don't see his DP post anymore. The tingle proves "Plan X" is working.

11. Ah, fantastic! His posting has been removed!
I would like to thank George Soros for this moment of triumph in our battle against the Freeper Menace. As long as George keeps those generous "donations" of "money" coming my way, I'm sure I could be persuaded to do battle a few more times.

:evilgrin:

12. UPDATE: NEW troll-like lifeform spotted, this time bashing liberals!
http://www.denverpost.com/ci_7493719

The very first comment at the bottom of the page. In case this one gets pulled like the last one did, here's the text:

"I'll just bet is is the American's fault. Somehow or other,it is those nasty Americans again trying to give people in Iraq freedom from Dictators and nuthouse mullahs. It just has to be America's fault. Well, at least I tried to beat the other leftist liberal "hate America" democrats to the punch. Now all you "haters" don't have to post."
