Hate that I'm just now seeing this. I miss all the good stuff. But, I did want to mention...

"Libretarded"...portmanteau of "liberal" and "retarded."

Gee...what a devastating insult. Must have taken him all day to come up with that one.

A real Rumplestlskin of the english language that guy is.

I would not have participated in this thread were it not for the word "libretard", and having just read it as the sub-title of an article. I still don't really know why the word was there: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/06...opi_suspended/

Flouncing is a time honored tradition amongst trolls unable to cope with a website that maintains a modicum of decorum and civilit.

I keep wanting to flounce, but then I remember I wouldn't be here to enjoy it. So it would be wasted.

My life is difficult.

Really, it is.
