Anti-Linux Trolls Classified

  • The “Curious Troll” pretends to be using/experimenting with Linux, but only ever bashes it.
  • The “But[t] Troll” is similar to the above, but every apparent compliment is followed by “but… [insert FUD here].” I’s like controlled opposition in a sense.
  • The “Concerned Troll” insists that s/he is trying to help Linux, but only even smears Linux and uses this “concern” as an excuse.
  • The “Revisionist Troll” likes to pretend that s/he is informing while every once in a while injecting a quick rewrite of history. Some former Microsoft staff is like that.
  • The “Nasty Troll” just attacks people, sometimes with libel.
  • The “Pond Scum Troll” is just trying to ruin forums by acting like a nut house escapee and projecting this on the rest of the people in the forum.
