    Who is BF's greatest (active) troll?

    I figured Foo was the best place to put this.

    Before voting, there is a very comprehensive definition, history and analysis of trolling here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_troll

    For the purposes of this thread, let's concentrate on the 'one-shot' troll:
    "One-shot troll messages are intended to be disruptive, and tend to be very obvious to ensure that they will receive annoyed replies." In my own opinion, a good one-shot troll makes an OP, and never has to respond to any posts as the war he/she started rages on with a life of it's own.

    My nominee for this category would be SinCityCycler - he's proven to be a one-shot master.

If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    Sincity has been able to walk the line for a long time. If you are asking for purely active...I could agree with the recommendation

    I've never experienced him myself, but another member was once telling about this guy "Hank Reardon" in the mountain biking forum who was pretty horrible.

    He can be a good guy, he definitely knows his stuff. Just don't get on his bad side or he'll verbally beat you to death. I'll quote SBW on this one: "He always won. "

    I'm inclined to agree with SinCity, but I'm really not sure he can truthfully be considered a troll. It's just that every time he posts, he shows an almost unbelievable lack of tact, taste, or common sense.

    Just take a peek over in P & R. There are a handful (three leap to mind) who repeatedly are spitting toenails and patching up bullet-holes in their feet. They aren't especially capable, but they certainly are persistent.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    True...P&R is a whole different animal...that eats its young!

    Bill Dozer. Aka bldzr

    He doesn't seem to try very hard, but achieves maximum results. He won't even post unless it's to raise hell.

    Pete Fagerlin, (AKA Hank Reardon, John Galt, and Rank Heardon) should see a therapist. The Man-Child has some issues.

    Vic is not really a troll. He posts other subjects, not just inflammatory ones. Just because you don't like him, doesn't mean he fits the description. Same goes for Hank Rearden. Not a troll, just not friendly and highly opinionated. Big difference.

    By your definition, Helmet Head is a troll from hell. But he's not. He's just an ass.

    errrrmm. . . . . R600DuraAce?

    Actually, I don't think he's a troll. I think he's just totally clueless. Totally, utterly, completely, absolutely clueless. If there's anyone here who hasn't experienced the legacy of posts he's had in the roadie forum, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Seriously.

    P and R. Even in non - P & R topics, the wars get pretty hot about who is an overdressed wanna-be cyclist.

    After much reflexion and caffeine, I deleted my prior post
    I figured naming members on being trolls could be nothing but trouble, if being a troll means being deceptive as to what you truly are, being full of c*** and start trouble, then yeah.. I have a couple in mind but the day is too nice for me to start an argument!
