Actually most of the 'real' trolls would be quite flattered to be recognized - but I get your point.

I'm not sure whether I'm flattering myself here or not, but I have noticed myself to kill many a thread. Although this alone does not define me as a troll, it certainly is consistent with the "do not feed the troll" mentality.

I wasn't around for the 53X11 All the Way, but hear he's a legend. So I vote for EURO. SinCity is right up there - he provokes, but some of his questions are interesting in an odd way.

EURO, on the other hand, is brilliant. He's confrontational, he baits people, and he's completely up front about it. And we (okay, some of us) fall for it. Something about his posts always provokes a reaction. And what's even better is he's right most of the time, too. Sheer genius.

edit: oops, missed the bit about the troll being 'active'. Not sure if EURO's around anymore.

EURO - is once again active (but for how long?) I'll have to change my vote to him, since P & R looks to be gone once again.

atroll is great also, but not in the way the OP described.

Euro is hardly a troll...he actually believes some of the crap he spouts, then runs off to the mods when you give him a taste of his own medicine. Whining to your mommy is not a desirable attribute for a troll.

The best part about R600's legacy is that there is absolutely zero consensus on whether he really is a troll, or whether he's just totally clueless. IMHO, that is the true mark of a truly great troll - no one knows if they're serious or not. As soon as someone actually becomes recognised as a troll, the tone in their threads changes. When people aren't sure, the hilarity ensues without end.

Oh, Chip. He's still haunting you. Do you wake up in the dark, to the awful screaming of the EUROs? Try to let him go, man. Try.

Haunting me? He still calls me on the phone and sends little love letters! I think poor Benny boy is in love with me!
