    here anymore.

    Too many !! But I didn't see any sock puppets.

    I believe there are actually three types of sock puppet

    Lamb chop - mostly harmless

    Punch and Judy - stirring up trouble

    Chucky - malicious evil little nasty...........

    that was very funny . . . and yikes, recognizing certain aspects of myself . . . whoever thought it up certainly has a great grasp on bulletin board entities.

    thanks for posting it.

    i know of a few here that fit this description

    netiquette nazi is in control and she does not tolerate backtalk. the guidelines for every discussion forum are clearly posted and she demands obedience. if any of you sniveling dogs break the rules or deviate from strict observance of netiquette you will be punished.

    Looks like Edwina Currie, ex-conservative Member of Parliament, and lover to then Prime Minister John Major!

    hmmm first choice---

    eagle scout is a positive, constructive warrior who endeavors to submit original articles which contain useful content and relevant information with supporting citations and links, thus initiating meaningful discussion threads. eagle scout regards the internet as an uplifting, egalitarian, worldwide arena for the exchange of ideas among intelligent, thinking individuals. he does not openly attack, but will (ever tactfully) chastise disruptive comments, gratuitous insults and cretinous insipidity. he is always kind and helpful to newbie, and will shrug off even the most egregious insults. eagle scout is loathed with a poisonous intensity by evil clown, jerk, l'enfant provocateur and ego. caution: sometimes imposter, evil clown or troller will masquerade as eagle scout. there have also been reports of eagle scout becoming jekyl and hyde.

    my sons (first class scouts) will attest to the jekyl and hyde notion.
