Morpheses: And all the guys on the local morning and sports talk shows.


"Hey Dogboy, did you see this? Did you hear about this guy in Florida?"

"What guy, R.J.?"

"This guy, this guy who filled out a job application in the middle of a robbery?"

"Wow, that's some bizarre stuff, R.J. Only in Florida."

Everything on CNN is trolling and fluff anyways. What MTV is to music videos, CNN is to news.

/CNN Headline News is pretty good.

This is just what I would expect from those ultra-leftist COMMUNISTS AT CNN. If you want the truth, go read Aelx Jones Prison Planet and David Icke's TRUTH about the shape-shifting jewish catholic PEDOPHILE freemason aliens that run everything. He has PROOF that goerge bush and the queen is one!

I don't mind trolls so much. But when you have the same guy trolling a thread with multiple alts.

FTA "Give other commenters more power to "up-vote" or "down-vote" posts? "We don't really believe in the democratic process of decision-making when it comes to discussion," Denton said."

This is why news media is a joke.

God save the TROLLS!

"The answer? Denton said his sites are planning to post some stories that allow only a hand-picked, pre-approved group of people to comment on them. That, he said, would make the comment section an extension of the story and allow people,"

Ah, so Gawker is finally going to restrict commenting to their "gold star" commenters. Don't disagree with anything their editors say, though, they'll take your star away for that.

How appropriate that this is on CNN's site. The site that can quite literally make you lose faith in humanity. I come away from reading CNN's comments section thinking that not all life is precious, not all life is worth saving, and some really would be better off should a meteor land on their head.

At least here reading comments can sometimes (maybe often?) be more humorous than the articles. In fact I often quote or link some of the best comments and pass them along to friends and family.

BTW, as a big film fanatic I have to say the trolls have quite literally ruined IMDB.com. You can almost never have actual discussions, and forget it if it is about anything TV related (what is it about TV shows that draws the biggest trolls). There was an idiot named GINOGONEFOREVER who use to post at Syfy forums, then he got banned and moved to IMDB. This guy would literally post 10-15 comments a day that were the most absolute insane and pathetic trolling ever. Made worse by the fact he believed fully his pathetic crusade to combat the paid network shills. Idiot was obsessed with the original Battlestar Galactica, and spent his life trolling anything related to the new BSG, Syfy, or just about anything remotely connected. Do a Google search for his name and you will quite literally see for yourself a failure of our mental health system.

Warthog: It's great that you people laugh. Don't you realize what they're trying to do to you? They want you to think the erosion of our country is funny, and not important. Stealing from the founders. They want you to ignore them taking your liberty, and handing it over to foreign kings. Your children being with science in the schools. The atheists and the islamists controlling you. It's more than what you think, even those of you who think you "know." You don't know. Not unless you were there. Which you weren't. I was. I know. Throw off the goggles and see it for yourself.


I'd like to know who "they" are.

Honestly, what is really eroding our country is partisan politics and the hate and paranoia it creates. As far as I can tell, the only person controlling me is my wife :) .
