A Trolls Repent

I am a little worried about the new troll filters and was thinking if you
could find it in your hearts to admit me, a former troll, who would like to
turn a new leaf and become just like all you people - just post mostly on
topic and have a bit of fun. I would laugh at your jokes and fawn and treat
you with respect. Of course I would renounce my trollish ways and dump any
and all trolls that I might have responded to in the past - (just makes me
want to take a shower thinking about those disgraceful people and how I
could have befriended them!!) So I beg your forgiveness and if I could just
be one of you . . . . would be my Christmas fantasy! Deal??

To prove my sincerity, Dally - I would offer one session of cunnilingus to
you and I would waive my fee. (albeit a fairly short session and under
certain conditions)

And you're responding to Bill Davidson. The irony is palpable.

You owe me a breakfast. I hate vomiting before noon. I trust one
condition would be to wash the infected area?

Condition 1 - 'thoroughly soak infected area for 30 minutes with a solution
of ajax
Condition 2 - the practitioner would need have consumed a full bottle of
Jack Daniels straight

And if I didn't know better, even after all our hard work John, I
would swear that the "troll" filters aren't working.

Have a great Christmas mate - you know I intend to! ;o)

TFIF!

Ssssshhhhh... You aren't on John Williams' list of "trolls", so
perhaps you *have* been forgiven, and are already one of the new
'clique'.

Enjoy mate, and don't reply to this if it will embarrass you or affect
your new status. I will quite understand.

What happened to the new "troll" filters Dolly? Small wonder John
Williams is vexed with you.

(mind you, this could be reversed if I don't get full admission as a card
carrying regular? no hard feelings right?)

[None at all mate. However, once you're on the committee perhaps you
would arrange for my admission to the clique.]

I'd really like to do that JRH - but you know, I'd have to refer it to JMW
as without his fastidious relentlessness this new troll filter system would
not be working! (I hope you understand!)

Dave,

Do you still love me? I can't seem to get over you. You're so tight. So
very very tight.

Delicious.

Yum, Yum.

My newsreader, slrn, which I recommend to both trolls and their
detractors, employs a very nice idea of scorefile. I give
integer-valued positive or negative scores based on any of the headers
(in addition, headers could be parsed through regular expressions).

A negative score of, say, -10 would mark matching articles with a
certain color and put a "read" mark in front. You can still open the
post. A score of -9999 would not show the matching articles at all
(that's like the dreaded, alleged bozo bin). A score of 10 would put a
high attention mark in front, and you can jump to the next high score
article with a keystroke.

Is it safe to assume that all the scoring is done post-download?

Scoring is done during fetching of the headers (whole articles don't
need to be downloaded at this point). There isn't a considerable
slowdown due to filtering.

I haven't tried slrn under Windows but there is such thing too -
http://thingy.apana.org.au/~fun/slrn/

An easy way to understand slrn's simple scorefile syntax is to score a
couple of articles in the newsreader and then examine the resulting
scorefile in a text editor.
