"it" I meant "your personal crusade", not "the CVU",
suspect you already knew that.
Well, since you're willing to give me enough credit to recognize
antecedents, maybe you'd be willing to consider that I'm making a
serious point, one that's been agreed with by other people. Are they
blatantly trolling too?
If you just posted and said "Counter-Vandalism Unit is an
unnecessarily aggressive name under which to organize counter-
vandalism" that would be one thing. But you started with "Counter
Vandalism Unit sucks and is a bunch of evil militarist jackbooted
fascists!!" to get a bunch of responses on the mailing list. That's
the textbook definition of trolling, or as we used to call it, "just
trying to get attention".
