100% Agreed.

Can anyone say, "This looks like spam... Feels like spam... and is about
as useful here in the Python forums as spam -- therfore my conclusion is
that his VB message probably IS SPAM." :-D

Hi,

Not being from anglo-saxon heritage, I keep wondering why spammers always
(or very often) get called 'trolls' ?

I mean fantasy fiction has brought us many hugly beasts (goblin, warlock,
orc, dark elf ....)

The trolls, as I recall, grow back their limns once those have been cut by
the nice folks.

Is that the reason ?

Regards,

Philippe

Fishing from a boat that is moving slowly is called "trolling". You're
slowly dragging bait or a lure through the water to entice a fish to bite
your hook. Similarly, when someone posts a provocative message to a mailing
list or Usenet newsgroup (or other discussion forum, I suppose) they are
often trying to get someone else to "take their bait".

Actually there are many understandings, but many stem from a "something ugly"
sense as in the old Norse legend.

In the context of the internet, the meaning is usually:
To "troll" means to allure, to fish, to entice or to bait. An internet troll is someone who fishes for people's confidence and, once found, exploits it.
Internet deception relies on exploiting trust and building confidence, and
the rewards can be financial or psychological.


As you can see, though, the context could be any communication, from anyone
from the common criminal to the established political, religious, or business
leader :~)

I found an excellent technique in "Eric Meyers on CSS" that I thought some of you might be interested in. The technique is to use "debugging" styles to quickly see the layout of a page. For example, if you are trying to see the layout of a table-based HTML form (to convert to CSS, of cource ;) ), you would add the style: table { border : 2px solid blue;}
