It will take a while to read all the caricatures... but what I have seen so far are extremely well done!

Mike Reed is perhaps smarter than me.... while I get angry and argue... he quietly "gets even" with his wit!!! :61

Also Capitalista and lurker and toxic granny and artful dodger are all good. They're all good.

I haven't got through all the types.... but the ones I have are spot on... I know ALL these types :12

Your name implies an Ozzie connection?

Thanks for the welcome!!

As to the name...I get asked a lot if it has anything to do with Australia ( I even made an internet enemy 'cause of the name, but that is a story for another time!). It's actually from a Tom Waits song called "Tom Traubert's Blues":

In other news, I am super impressed with myself for figuring out how to quote...remembering the first forum I ever joined it took me, no lie, like a month!


ETA: now all I need to figure out is how to quote more neatly...LOL

You are doing very well...

The pbpBB platform does have some difficulties.. it is different from vBulletin used by many forums :24

I'll fix the YT link for you... there is a help thread for things like that.... eventually.

( I moved the song... after I replied with another song...)

What are you listening to thread:

UNFORTUNATELY.. The "Fame Warriors" Link is dead

I do have my top researcher looking for an alternative.

Even screenshots are few and far between... many corrupted by the bastids at PhotoBucket, but I found a couple..

Feel free to post others... pic plus description :cool

Know a few of these :lol

Lamer

Image

Quote:
Lamer is a Warrior who appears in different guises to different people, and is therefore difficult to describe in full detail. Nonetheless, he is readily identifiable because of his mediocre wit, utter lack of insight and vacuous comment . You begin to sense Lamer’s presence when you are able to anticipate the content of his messages even before reading them. Lamer actively participates in forum discourse and readily jumps into battle, but his ineffectuality renders him relatively harmless when encountered in single combat.CAUTION: Lamer’s crushing dullness can enervate even the most robust Warrior, and while it is usually possible to overcome the presence of a few Lamers, enough of them banded together the can numb the liveliest forum into extinction.

Nitpick

Image

Quote:
Nitpick compensates for his general weakness as a Warrior by pouncing on errors, however irrelevant to the discussion, and using them to discredit the enemy. For example, if his opponent in a sports forum conflict casually mentioned the Cubs’ 4-2 victory in the 1908 World Series, Nitpick would quickly counterattack with something like, “4-2 !? Any moron knows the Cubs won the Series 4-1! Someone so ignorant about baseball history can’t possibly know anything about salary caps!” Even if the minor point is conceded Nitpick will return to it whenever pressed in the main arena of battle. Nitpick can be easily bested by even Rottweiler Puppy, but he is very tenacious and will never admit defeat. Nitpick is a close ally of Artful Dodger.

Howlers

Image

Quote:
Howlers generally populate academic, technical or special interest forums in which particular issues are discussed. Newbies to such forums often wander in thinking they have found some devastating new argument that contradicts accepted wisdom on the forum topic. Of course, if the forum is a long-standing and active discussion group it will probably have heard and debated the argument at length, so instead of reviving a dead topic Howlers will simply shout and throw excrement until the intruder leaves.


:lol
