Mini-Microsoft, an anonymous but popular blogger who writes from inside Microsoft has turned on comment moderation. Interesting. That means he's gotten tired of the anonymous commenters who are griping about things. Ironic. But, I understand. Boy, do I understand. Mentally it's hard to separate out the personal attacks (and, boy, they have been getting personal lately — things that you wouldn't hear in even the worst bar fight) and keep them from hurting you. These things are designed to hurt. They aren't designed to help anyone or help anything.
The venom is flowing. I figure there's no way to control it, so might as well encourage it. Who can write the best anti-Scoble flame? What's the nastiest thing you can say to me? Let's get it all out on the table so you can get all your venom out of your system and we can go on with life together.
Here, let's practice: Scoble, you are the evilest, fattest, rudest, stupidest, most egotistical, corporate shill that I've ever seen. Even poo is better than you.
I'm sure you can think up better. It's 2:44 a.m. Shoot me for not having good flaming skills this late in the evening.
There's a good example over on Rick Segal's blog. I bet Rick will pull it down, but it says "I am so sick of that fat retard….he is like a overgrown child and looks so stupid trying to defend MS as their press turns to shit around them!"
That's getting into the spirit.
There's a couple of good examples over on Shelley Powers' blog: (Ken Camp) "he’s become a drone without new insight and is such a boring read any more than i don’t bother most of the time." (Scott Koon) "I just …. feel smarter since I stopped reading him. I filled my aggreagor with more do-ers and less talkers like him."
Or, how about Comic Strip Blogger? He goes even further with his comic about me. First panel? "That swine Robert Scoble."
Oh, ouch, keep it coming! Who can flame better?
