“I opened the task manager and killed some processes until it stopped.”
“violent fellow, aren't you.”
“gotta pop-up from marketmatters.com or something like that”
“check your computer for spyware/adware”
“company does that - i'll assume they missed something”
“I am getting them as well, but they are pop-unders on my desktop. I think I heard someone say this can happen on TT... but a pop-ups aren't.”
“pop-unders can happen on other pages within thebackpacker.com, but they shouldn't happen on TT. So if you go read gear reviews or visit a trip page, you might get a pop-under.”
“trip page was where i got them, so that makes sense. thanks!”
“Hey sarge, if you don't like the pop-ups, you can leave. You are lucky I haven't booted your ass already anyway.”
“We'll see how long this troll lasts.”
“I can hear Matt's troll zapper warming up in the background.”
“That was mean, even for a troll.”
“I don't mean to make more work for you but could you switch the "NSA building database of all US phone records" http://www.thebackpacker.com/trailtalk/thread/43969,1.php thread to fuego? I donít think it should fall under chatter.
“What are you doing zac, keeping a database of mislabeled threads?”
“No just getting annoyed from seeing feugo threads when I have feugo turned off.”
“Titles of Feugo threads are so offensive. Cna we have two sites? One for Feugo and one for non feugo?”
“lol, lumber can't ignore a thread unless it's marked fuego?...i bet you wait to cross the road until the little man turns green don't you? ;)”
“Why would LZ's little man turn green?”
“Hey that little green guy is a big help. ;-)
Itís really only a minor annoyance, like a mosquito bite, but still annoying. Maybe I should start some chatter thread under the trips category.”
“lord knows none of us are taking trips ;)”
“Wow, The Matt works fast. If I knew he was going to grant my wish so quickly I would have asked for a million dollars or something. 8D
“When I started the thread I was just posting the article. I should have realized it was going to go fuego. Sorry lumberzac for damaging your eyes.”
“techntrek - It was "fuego" material from the beginning. Anything about "politics" is fuego. Some people on here seem to think anything that has arguing in it is fuego, but if you read when you start a thread, it says "All political and religion threads should be placed under Fuego."”
“it also says that "all threads started by morons like sarge shall be placed under 'fungo'".”
“Hey, I make the rules around here, not you.”
“Matt, check the db - it's not me.

“yeah, that's about your level of humor”
“You're not the first to get torlled, Sarge.
Welcome to the club.”
“Those aren't torlls, tree. They be "regular trolls".”
“when you start a thread, it says "All political and religion threads should be placed under Fuego."
are you saying that only political and religion threads should be placed under fuego? because if you are, i have to disagree”
“pretty mellow trolling there...
Years back when tarpy found out I was able to use his handle "mantra" he was fairly upset and made a very good version of my name and had his fun. It got some good laughs by many (myself included). That glitch that allowed that type of ID theft was fixed shorly thereafter.”
“Sarge, let's face it, you are in the same category as Violin in this regard.
Neither of you are backpackers, neither of you contribute to this site in any respect whatsoever in that regard. You only post here (TT) to spout your personally-held political beliefs. Period. Neither of you are folks we have, or would end up chatting with, around a campfire.
Anytime either of you post on a thread, that thread automatically becomes "fuego" in my mind.”
“was it "son of a birch"?
or "birch titties"?
“i think theyre both decent guys. and they both do contribute outside of fuego, and do have a good sense of humor when they let their guard down. i would be honored to hike with both of them. at the same time, even.”
“What I meant, CB, was that since neither of them were backpackers, we'd never have the OPPORTUNITY of chattingw them around the campfire.
They're just trolls. Period.”
“sarge hurt his knee of foot or something. i was of the opinion he was a hiker on the rebound or something like that.”
“I wasn't saying anything about whether or not they were "decent guys". I have no way of knowing that, since neither backpacks, & no-one has had tne opportunity to "sit around the campfire" and chat with them.
I'm just curious about why they both post here (TT) if they're not backpackers? What's their motivation and/or Goal? Seems like political conversion, in many cases.
But surely, it's just to expouse their political beliefs. This is "supposedly" a backpacking site, and of course other topics will come into play here, but these guys aren't backpackers! (or... they are "has-been" backpackers or "wanna-be" backpackers")
Bottom Line = their first priority in posting here has nothing to do with backpacking.”
“wanderer - I just hope if you hurt yourself and require surgery you aren't discounted as a backpacker.
(fyi - your "bottom line" is way off. I posted here before my surgery when I was backpacking. I had 2 other names and told everybody when I switched each time. The first name I had was too much like "woundedknee" so I switched. The 2nd time I switched was because I was given a trailname by fellow backpackers, ie: "Sarge". Perhaps you didn't frequent the site enough to know all this 1.5 years ago. Either way, I'm not sure how you busting on me has to do with campfire chat either, but I digress.)
PS - Please don't tell my wife I'm not a backpacker!! I'm going to have to explain to her why I spent all that money on gear and why 1/2 our wedding registry was gear.

“Sarge, you are a total & complete a$$ to suggest it's my fu$%ing fault that I don't track all your name changes.
Question # 1 - Why do you have to have 3 different names? What are you hiding? Why am I, as a viewer here, supposed to be responsible for tracking who you are & what names you post under?
What a dork. Sorry, Sarge, but there's just no other thought that comes to mind when I read your cr@#”
“I didn't suggest it's your fault that you don't track all my name changes.
I'm suggesting your an ass for busting on me and calling me these names, unprovoked.
Answer #1: Did you read my post? It's ALL in there! You want me to rewrite it? (1) People told me, and I quote "We already have a woundedknee.", and (2) I was given a TRAILNAME, so I switched my USERNAME to my TRAILNAME. Why you think that's so odd is beyond me.
This has nothing to do with whether or not you track name changes. You are the one who started busting on me out of the blue when somebody made a torll of me. I didn't even complain about it other than to let Matt know I wasn't copying his USERNAME. Ironic, since I'm the one who brought to your attention "wandererer". What's your problem today?
Dang it. My "would hike with" list just went from 22 to 21. Thanks a lot!

“Sorry, Sarge, but there's just no other thought that comes to mind when I read your cr@#
As an aside, you're a good candidate for using the "ignore this user" feature. If you're that bothered by reading my posts, give yourself a break from it. There is nothing wrong with that. Look out for #1.”
“so it was your knee?”
“Yes. I damaged it boxing a few years ago and finally got around to having surgery on it last year.”
“You are 100% correct, Sarge, and thanks for the reminder, you're now on "ignore".
If it means anything to you, you are now the first radical from the right on my ignore list, the radical elements from the left seemed to have dominated this board, so I naturally have a few of them on my ignore list, but you're just as outrageous in your extremist viewpoints from the right as they are in theirs from the left. You rank right up there (or down there) with Buddha Bear, et al.
I hope that gives you a little perspective on how you're percieved... you are a radical, not as a realist. As such, you have no credibility. For me, someone who, ironically, the lefties on this board have thrown rocks at for years, to put you on "ignore", means you are truly WAAAYYY out there on the fringes.
But maybe you like it out there.
Hope so. Have a nice life.”
“Glad you've done something to reduce stress in your life wanderer. Best of luck to you.”
“Boxing... now that was something I did not know. I had assumed it was related to running or hiking... an overuse injury.”
“ive had 3 different names. i think maybe ill try to remember the passwords to the other two and start trolling wandy with em.”
“matt kills all my trolls. i am not very good at it.”
“I think this conversation should be Fuego too, along with all other childish and immature name-calling.
Do y'all have any idea how ignorant you sound when you do that?”
