What Kind of Commenter Are You?

I saw this article by Michael Malone over at Pajamas Media yesterday and found myself laughing at the remarks in the comment section.

The post discusses the types of commenters that have populated the blogosphere over the years and assigns them titles everyone is familiar with: The Troll, The Droll, The Skimmer etc. Take a minute and read it if you have time today. It's hilarious.

If I may use the definitions used in the linked piece:

The Droll: bryanD. (also fits in The Martian category)

The Relentless Pol: The list is long but the stand outs are b henry, s. crickmore.

The Skimmer: WW.

The Butt-Kisser: with a slight variation, it's his own ass, p. hooson. (also fits The Boaster and The Lecturer labels)

The Alien: hyperbolist.

Just for the record, I read before I comment and I hate labels. Liberals love putting people in their place with labels. ww

The correct answer would have been:

If pointing out your extreme case of "right is good, left is BAD" form of dementia makes me an "angry man" so be it.

But in fact it means diddly-squat coming from you.

hyperbolist:

marc: I guess you'd be the son of The Angry Man and The Trimmer, though not in a bad way. I wouldn't want to be the only self-described a-hole who comments on this blog. :)

Well at least you recognize yourself when you look in the mirror.

WildWillie:

Marc, I rest my case. Your comment towards me oozes anger. When in fact if you look to the past, I was very much down of GW on immigration and his continuing spending. So, I guess your facts are wrong buddy. Take a chill pill. Be cool. It all works out. I am giving the left a taste of what it was like for the past eight years. ww

WildWillie:

And Marc, you are exhibit anger whenever someone disagrees with you from either side. ww

Ok, everyone, group hug!

hyperbolist:

Have to agree with Willie, marc. You could stand to go a little less crazy when someone says something you disagree with. Be as snooty and condescending as you want, but do so without giving the impression that you're turning kittens into furry Pez dispensers.

WildWillie:

marc, if Hyper and I agree on something, you have to take it to heart. ;) ww

Lurker was not mentioned in the article. They do not comment. This is not a comment. Please disregard it.
