Sad little internet people

So, I was on the Vogue Forum as I am wont to do when I have a bit of free time on my hands, and there was this chick ther. She's one of those shit-stirrers - the ones who change names every time they're banned (which is pretty much every day) and continue to try and pick fights with users. I took her bait because I was incredibly bored and I thought I would have some fun, and as predicted, she provided plenty of sport, although admittedly her comments weren't very original, along the lines of 'you're all such pathetic idiots for being users and you should get a life'. Oh, and her last stab before she logged off was 'At least I'm not fat like you' (The correct punctuation is from me). Ouch! I mean man, Oscar Wilde himself would've blubbered like a baby in the face of such a scathing yet witty barb (/sarcasm). These flamers are a bit hypocritical though aren't they? They go online and waste time telling us that we're pathetic losers for wasting time online. And that apparently we need lives. While they spend just as much time, if not more, endlessly posting the same boring comments. And in this girl's case, even taking the time to reregister every time she is banned, so she can continue wasting time telling us just how pathetic we really are. If I didn't find it so goddamned funny and entertaining to play with people like this, I might take a little more pity on them for being such sad little friendless attention seekers. But I have too much fun to care. Besides, they ask for a fight, and I gladly participate. And it gave me a chance to use my favourite insult from Will & Grace: 'does it hurt your back when you kiss your ass?'
