Please stop feeding joelsenior. He's already got a name and feeding trolls just makes them crave more food.

Fluff:

I see your point about him having a name -- and a reputation. However, he does indeed ask a "real question" which he sees as validating his post here. But then for some reason he has a need to add a quip which he just knows will result in a series of responses from petlovers irked by his quip. This then enables him to go back to Gimme My Stars and brag about his success in yet again riling up folks on another board.

Because he has asked a "real question", he thinks that means he's not a troll. In his world (such as it is), he has accomplished all he's set out to do -- ask a "real question", get responses (allegedly for his children) AND rile up folks on a particular board.

Maybe we should come up with another name for posters like him instead of "troll"? How about something like "PIDNOA" -- standing for "poster in desperate need of attention"? Just my suggestion, I'd be interested in hearing other suggestions! LOL.
