    There wasn't much work involved in last nights thread, everybody kept their heads and didn't let things get too freaky. It was simply a matter of flushing the toilet and then putting the lid down.

    Or is this simply another name describing agent provocateurs in general?

    Personally, whenever I encounter a controversial forum topic and vehemently disagree with the general consensus regarding it, I simply don't respond to it no matter how much I would like to express my viewpoint.
    Maggie is the name of the avatar given to "former forum member's", whom are "terminated with extreme prejudice"! It's a "jack ass" avatar.

    My intention is intended to be humorous (often unsuccessful because some take themselves too seriously) or thought provoking.

    Don't forget the name-calling trolls, and the insult trolls...

    One-word trolls can also be aggravating.
