Hoppy, looking back on this thread, I've noticed that you left out the part about proper trolling etiquette. Seeing as it's one of your favorite pastimes of late, I thought surely I could find some tips and how to's. Pretty disappointed, man, I was hoping to get some advice on how to hop on someone else's thread with nothing worthwhile to contribute and act like a total colon.

5. Avoid cliches like the plague. (They're old hat)
6. Also, always avoid annoying alliteration.
7. Be more or less specific.
8. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary.
9. Also too, never, ever use repetitive redundancies.
10. No sentence fragments.
11. Contractions aren't necessary and shouldn't be used.
12. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.
13. Do not be redundant; do not use more words than necessary; it's highly superfluous.
14. One should NEVER generalize.
15. Comparisons are as bad as cliches.
16. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
17. One-word sentences? Eliminate.
18. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.
19. The passive voice is to be ignored.
20. Eliminate commas, that are, not necessary. Parenthetical words however should be enclosed in commas.
21. Never use a big word when a diminutive one would suffice.
22. Use words correctly, irregardless of how others use them.
23. Understatement is always the absolute best way to put forth earth-shaking ideas.
24. Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Ihate quotations. Tell me what you know."
25. If you've heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times: Resist hyperbole; not one writer in a million can use it correctly.
26. Puns are for children, not groan readers.
27. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.
28. Even IF a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.
29. Who needs rhetorical questions?
30. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
31. Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.
Too funny to even read. TMIDR!

Yep, pretty old. I was reading this list somewhere else and I thought it looked familiar. William Safire copied from HoppyDaze and didn't bother to reference him. Not cool. Guess they felt differently about this sort of thing back in '74.

Maybe that should be a rule for posting: Thou shalt not usurp the work of others without a nod at least. A simple quote is one thing. A long, long list is another.
