Yes! I do have an MTO Chelsea en route from Carmina currently. Perhaps those, my 4 chukkas, 2 captoe and 2 wingtip boots are enough bootage. frown.gif

Why not just go with single monks if double monks are too much. I love single monks.

Or, in the best traditions of SF, get both.

Monks were always meant to be single.

These are modern times. Evolve or die.

 

(Or is not believing in that still an option?)

I think you're pretty good on the boot front.

Sprout has really turned into a troll here...

There's a difference between trolling and being/trying to be funny.

post #32140 of 37395

I admit I have fallen off the wagon -- but as K-T elucidates, trolling is being disingenuous in order to deliberately get a rise out of people. Making bad, Gong Show style jokes and getting hooked off the stage may not be droll, but it does not have malicious intent.

 

I've noticed over the last few years online that the word "trolling" has been warped to mean any non-standard behavior that a person doesn't like.

"Goofing off" is probably more apt.

 

Anyway, I'm still collecting a decent number of thumbs, but I myself feel the output has been unpolished of late, so I'll try to modulate the content to dispense an equal mix of nuggets of wisdom and witty repartee.

Yes.  This expanded usage is annoying because it leaves us without a name for what as originally called "trolling";  and the clever metaphor (from fishing) doesn't make sense in other contexts.

 

That said, actual trolling is just a special case of the sort of pathological attention-seeking behavior that the internet encourages.

 

I'm usually pretty successful in simply ignoring it.  In my time on SF I've only 'blocked' one poster, for example.

 

Cheers,

In its best form, though, good trolling can be satisfying for the perpretrator(s) in the way that a prank or practical joke is fun for those in on it -- like dispensing obviously dubious advice to a newbie as part of a hazing ritual.

 

Foo style behavior is definitely pathological, though. Overinflated ego/delusions of grandeur etc

Guys, I just received a tweed trenchcoat from Luxire but they made it quarter lined. Do you think I should and it back to have the lining added in? Is it even a big deal?
