I was not aware that the U.S. currently had a president in Sweden.
I'm actually with you on this one, vero (I think). I thought since it was both Kerry and Bush's assertion last night that "we lead the world", it'd be interesting to know what the rest of the world thought of that leadership.

Steve, I thought you were going to cut back on the trolling...

Well - since you want to let the proverbial cat out.... I can't speak for swedes as I don't mingle enough but it's fair to assume that they have the same views as Icelanders. The most rabid right-wingist in the nordic countries (and probably europe) would be a soft-bellied liberal to the avarage American. We are all for Kerry and were very pleased with the outcome of the debate, at least as it was presented to us. Will this do ?

Some of the latter links concerning Josh do not seem to work? Is anybody else having this same problem? And, how do you link up a post from another forum? I have also found one which I think we could all appreciate.

Thanks, but my visit was/is to send a PM. Not sure if I am able to moderate myself enough to visit frequently.  As evidenced by this fast response.

I would say all Nordics, and most Europeans would find John Kerry unacceptably right wing. And Bjorn, you are dead-on when you write that we Yanks would find your most rabid right-wingist to be socialists.

I am sticking by my theory that he was a bored Jerry Seinfeld. Bic
I agree. The Internet provides the opportunity for some clever soul to play this huge practical joke on all of us daily. Josh was so inane, yet so brilliant in a comedic way, that I always wondered if that were not the case. Like he dedicated his life to making our days more surreal. It was almost Andy Kaufmanesque performance art.

I've changed my vote to Josh as well. We should use his questions as a link to Frequently Asked Questions. They're really funny, but they're really informative to any newbies out there. But, they're a lot better when they were edited by that one poster who put all of Josh's best posts together in one thread. The best trolls are when you really don't know if the person is being serious or not. Its a fine line, and eventually, they always stumble. NickM: Why do you think Joshua on the askandy forum was an evolution of Josh? Do you have any threads to back this up? Does anybody have a list of the pseudonames marc39 was using on the askandy site. Its obvious when he's talking about Raphael, but it still gets confusing trying to keep track of who's who on that forum. marc39 best troll was when he used the name of David B's tailor to attack David. It was so freakin' funny.

There are a number of reasons to think so, but take a look at some sample threads: The etiquette of white lab coats How do I reconcile my interest in clothing with philosophical abstractions? Is Simon Cowell the ideal European male? The Gap makes the best value dress shirts. Is my beanie's coloration too feminine? Look, I'm not trying to dump on poor Josh, but you have to admit that there's a familiar ring to these posts.

Trolls on a gentleman's board are quite different than your average trolls, that's for sure. I remember a long while ago on this forum, someone posted the "etiquette of farting," and I thought it was rather hilarious. I laughed for a long time reading that. On more sophisticated forums, you have more sophisticated trolls. I also liked when the Tommy Hilfiger post was made, and someone registered "Tom Ford" and "Helmut Lang" and posted as them arguing against each other... "Helmy, you are so off my buddy list." Honestly, though, Kalra is one of the best trolls I've ever seen. He was so incredibly classic. Okay, about Josh. I never went to the modern man forum, but I read this and wow, my eyes are watery:

I have recently bought five arrow oxford shirts with 16.5 sized collars. Eight of my fingers can fit into the collar even with the top button buttoned. I have only washed them once so far. I have difficulties tightening my tie because the collar becomes wrinkled and bunched up. I know that this collar size is about an inch too large for me so I need to shrink it somehow. Should I wash my shirts in warm next time to shrink them a bit? I could also dry them longer in the dryer? Or maybe there's some kind of padding I can pad my neck with?

I also remember when somebody on this forum decided to impersonate marc39 here with a username that would identify himself as the infamous marc39. I thought it was so surreal that somebody would do this, considering how many times mark had taken up multiple aliases himself. Unfortunately, that post got deleted.

Reminds me of the time Jim Carey did an impersonation of Jimmy Stewart doing an impression of Jim Carey With the real Jimmy Stewart looking on.

Yeah, that was me, sorry everyone. I was waiting at home for a delivery, and was bored out of my mind.

I'll PM you a very long list.

I missed this.. Anybody got a link?

I loved that Hilfiger/Lang/Ford bit. Also, people have their definition of a "troll" confused with the definition of a "gimmick." A troll is someone who flames up threads for absolutely no reason at all except to simply be a dork. A person can flame once in a while and not be a troll. A person who consistently hijacks threads and generally makes reading it and participating in it unbearable is a troll. A gimmick is something like Tommy Hilfiger. It's a guy hiding behind the anonymity of the Internet to pretend he's someone else. Some are funny. Most are not. So what you had with kalra was both a troll AND a gimmick, a stunning combination of awfully bad posting. My favorite has to be marc39 though, especially when he just right out of the blue made an anti-French attack against Pierre (the same one on the London Lounge, I believe.) Edit: Here's the link to the Tommy Hilfiger thread with Lang and Ford. It is pure hilarity and one of my favorite threads ever. http://www.styleforum.net/cgi-bin....0;st=30
