    multiple-comment trolls in a similar manner, but this was not the situation in this particular instance, at least as far as I could tell.

    Coming up with cleaver retorts is something I enjoy as well, but that doesn't mean it's always the best way to handle a rogue comment.

    I wouldn't necessarily have replied "I love you, please love my diary, and I'll do anything to convince you of my good intentions" either, but "fuck you" strikes me as a little harsh for a single comment in an otherwise reasonably civil diary.

      of the stuff when this was a smaller community if you want to see nasty.  Armando v1.0 could flay the skin off of an idiot and MaryScott was a master of invective.

      This is but a pale shadow of the dkos of old....another one to ck is DHinMI for some seriously nasty responses to foolish comments.   We are like a Sunday School in comparison.....

        I was reading the original "pie fight" diaries the other day.

        MSOC comes to mind as well.

        I thought the idea was to move away from that kind of discourse.
