    Plot twist: I am Senti's and sureshs' account. They really co-write my posts. :shock:

    That was just the two of them arguing over which posts to post. ;)

    If this were true, sureshs would be winning bcoz Senti would spelled it "poast"!:twisted:

    We alternate poasts. Sureshs gets one poast, then I get another. ;)

    This would explain your acute schizophrenia, a very necessary trait to troll effectively! Senti has also masterfully displayed his two sides, often claiming to be a Fedophile while we all deep down know he is afflicted with the dreaded Nadalomania he caught from sureshs. Two esses in a curve they are, our Indian Cain and Abel!

    He has 30K poasts, to your measly 5K.
    He's ripping you off, big time.

    And his poasts are intelligent and informative, culled from Discovery Channel and Nat Geo. Except for his tennis tips which i dare not imagine the source of.:)

    See, I predicted you would respond like that, blabbing about a bunch of stuff without any evidence to back it up. :twisted:

    Wait, my doctor told me it was just mild scizophrenia and acute bipolar disorder. Are you saying Dr. Doctor* lied to me?! :cry:

    *Yes, that's his name. Because he apparently has two doctorates, I didn't dare question his lack of references. Though, his four-eyed, six-armed secretary assured me everything I see is real.

    That's no doctor, and those are not arms. Your alien visitors have no shame, sir.

    It's good taking a break now and then, Senti. Also... no, it wasn't a silent ban. :)

    I thought he might have drawn the contract on Bartabble put out by Putin to silence that abomination. Mission, sadly, not accomplished!

    Bart is my favorite poaster.


    Okay, second fave after FOD. Nowadays, I am having a tough time comprehending what B poasts.

    You deal with the elderly and their inexplicable ways so you should be able to translate his gibberish better than most!

    Yes, I am wonderful.

    But I have a hard time finding anything too interesting about tennis around here anymore and everything else is banned.

    The retreat into obscurity is a prelude to a disappearance, perhaps.

    I mean like your second post on quantum physics had me puzzled. I wasn't sure whether you were just messing, or whether reading Tippy's posts had reduced my IQ to 50 from the high of 95 I once boasted.

    Thanks for bumpin' this thread. I was quite bummed the other day when i found this slipping into page 2.

    Even after I'd made enough money trolling to pay off all my mortgages and saved aside enough for that wonderful old-age home, the thrill of being number one was too good to give up. I then trolled just for the joy of trolling, for the honor of being TW's top and most dreaded troll, for the troller's high.

    I shall troll to the bitter end. Or till my coffee runs out.

    The word 'troll' needs to be more restrictively defined in order to be useful.

    Senti, I must ask, how did you subvert your competition so effectively?

    It seems that the trolls have been replaced by hippies at a 'love-in'.

    A rather fanciful recollection there.

    All the political threads around here are started by right wingers who can't refrain from turning anything into an illustration of their favourite ideological theme.

    If I make a comment in those circumstances it's not because I want to but because the thread will go on and on unchallenged.

    For example, a harmless enough thread about the Sochi Olympics was turned into a version of the 'new, new cold war' by our right wing cold warriors.

    25 thousand posts in 6 years will indeed ruin your IQ.

    Surely there's some bug in the TW software since posts in this section should really not add up.

    I don't think you can really say this. I'm a moderate and I see lefty stuff that's pretty offbeat and fanciful often enough here. Neither the right nor left have the Grand Absolute Truth.

    Putting down trolls is not an evil.
    They deserve being put down, for their own good.

    I'm sorry you are just wrong as most of the troops are massed on the right side and as for Grand Absolute Truth, well, he is always on the side of the big batallions.

    With those credentials you might be disqualified from participating in Jeopardy, but would fit right in The Price is Right.

    I once donned nadal freak's 'nadal fist pump' avatar. A few posters here saw it and fell off their chairs thinking that NF had returned, lol.
    Then about a dozen or more people donned that avatar all rotating it or flipping it. We had quite a lark for a few days till some sensitive chaps began getting touchy about it and we moved on to another avatar.

    Recounting tales of Trollery shows Senti is getting a little long in the tooth, if there's any teeth left after his badly breaking binge of late. Maybe it's time to enter the seniors' section of the next TrollTourney, no???:twisted:

    I think anybody who has lived through the infamous Trollian Wars of 2009 (following Nadal's taking of the AO and subsequent defeat at the FO) can claim seniority, much as a veteran army officer of many bloody wars. ;)
