The Adequacy.org Style Troll (AST): A brief refresher.


For every prostitute there is a first time you have sex for money, and for every troll there is a first time you just cut the hell up for the purity of the chaos unleashed, instead of any real belief in the topic at hand.

On the Pro side, it is always safer to ridicule passion than to surrender to it. Although reading ASTs from the victim side is only amusing the first four or five times, perpetrating them can remain amusing for many years as the now-defunct website Adequacy.org demonstrated.

The world is inhabited by an unending procession of marks who will fall for a well-constructed troll, and as not just a troll but an AST you will own them. You will own one of the loftiest perches in the idea-space of humanity, a position unassailable because of its very mutability.
