    Not Trolls, but there ought to be a name.

    What's the deal with the idiots on some of the gun forums (certainly not this one, of course) that post about things that are obviously plagiarized from magazines and other sources to make themselves sound so all knowing? WTFO? I've been reading some stuff one of the idiots posted that not only came from another source (not being quoted) but made no sense to anybody but the guy posting. If there is not already a name for this type of poster we need to make one up. It needs to also include those nuts that post about things no one cares about. Most of these people come across very condesending and pompous and the sad part is sometimes they don't even know it! Keep it clean but we definitely need a name. Let's have some suggestions. Rant off.

    Excellent point Charlie, those guys are a pain in the ass. I don't know what to call them that can be written on a forum. Why don't we make something up?

    BTW, you made post #10,000 :smt025

    Yeah, we probably need some outside input here 'cause some of the names I thought of should not be put on the forum. Come on Denny, I know you can help out here. Shipwreck?

    Well, unfortunately, it's not enough to call them "banned" :P

    Quote from 2400, How about "asshat"


    That sounds good, but we've all heard that used for a variety of poster maladies (sp?). Good though, very good.
