As I read this post, I could not help but think: “Why is it that in analyzing, and explaining, certain very bad behavior on the internet, Almost Diamond’s Stephanie Zvan has managed to also describe Norm Coleman almost perfectly?”

What you can’t do if you insist on breaking rules is expect anyone to think you’re anything but a dishonest troll. Dishonest because you’re not following the rules you tried to set up for the conversation. Troll because you tried to insist the conversation only happen the way you wanted it to.

You must read Stephanie’s posts on self inflicted n00b victimhood.

    I think that if you take “on the internet” out of your statement, it becomes self-explanatory.

    I think it’s a tad long for a bumper sticker, but if Stephanie is up for it, we ought to have shirts or letterhead or something printed up.
