Internet and Blog Etiquette

I post on a lot of boards on a lot of topics all over the internet. The worst part of the forums, other than the lame applications that eat your post before submitting it to the site, are the trolls. Trolls are the idiots who try to provoke you by calling you names, acting as if their opinion is the only valid thought on a topic or being rude and childish on the boards. It takes a lot of self control not to jump to the bait, but it helps if you picture some toady, fortish loser, with Cheeto fingers, typing away in his parents' basement in their discolored underwear. If you lower yourself to their level, you are even more pathetic than they are.

Trolls are the people I wish would learn and use Netiquette.
