Ah, Real Life

From which we hide our petty fandom squabbles in shame and ignominy.

From a certain professional listserv I'm subscribed to:

Can't the members of this group have a discussion, of any type, without calling each other names and slinging sarcastic remarks? Some of you are just unbelievably rude.

I mean, seriously, don't you have enough work to do?

delete, delete, delete

(Though to be fair, the list isn't nearly as wanky as most fandom lists. The people on it just live sheltered lives, so when someone does get flamey or stupid, it attracts undue attention.)

I'm not sure there actually is a moderator, oddly enough. :) At least I don't think I've ever seen anyone step in to make a modly type post.

But no, the guy knows he's essentially spamming; he's been doing it for years. There's even a website dedicated to the trail of bizarre conspiracy theory posts he's left across mailing lists and usenet. It's a very funny read.
