One of the better aspects of MacSoup is the ability to review the
postings of 'trolls', to see if they ever had any sane moments.
Sometimes they do but sometimes you can mark a point where 'a switch is
thrown' and they become sociopathic. But trying to make sense of their
behavior is pointless and some of them are quite persistent.

One amusing approach is to use their nonsense as lead-in to technical
postings or quality content. Simply trim out their nonsense and reply
with something useful.

It is a shame because some of them actually have some ability to deal
with reality. But literally, it is as if 'a switch was thrown' and they
go off the deep end. So I'm content to let them self-destruct.

Talking about sociopaths, "CNW Marketing" released this graph of
"new-shoppers who would consider buying a hybrid:"

The graph shows the Katrina gas hikes really impacting buyer interest.
But I'm also thinking about the wholesale price of oil being over
$0/barrel. I read one report that the refineries have been cutting
their margins and keeping the price of gasoline modest. But this can
only go on so long. When the price of gas once again follows the barrel
price, we'll see sustained, Katrina prices.

That's where a kill file becomes so useful.


The world is full of nut cases, be it real life or Internet.


Isn't that why so many auto manufactures are producing hybrid or
electric cars?  I'll bet there's more of a demand from consumers
wanting to save money on fuel than there is wanting to be "green".
There's probably a survey somewhere.
