    Although I am laughing this is a perfect example of trolling.This kid has just posted on this thread in order to attack another poster. He isnt the only one.

    Pretty good.

    If you want to see world class trolling go and take a look at the Europe forum.

    You'd be picked last on an elementary school recess game.

    So what? Insofar as one isn't aiming on USMB to engage in conversation fitting to an elementary school recess game, it doesn't matter whether your claim be so....Though perhaps among those who, on USMB, desire to have or who can only offer elementary-school levels of discursive content, perhaps it does matter.....

    Longknife isn't a troll. He rarely creates threads, but when he does he creates a few at once, and half of them aren't even political.

    You'd be wrong on that one.
