Anatomy of a flame war

  1. Apparently the rec.climbing Tibloc thread I mentioned yesterday has achieved legendary status in the netherworld of Usenet subculture. Among the gems of commentary posted on this thread, the one below deftly reduces the nonsense to its poetic essense. Thanks to Chris J for turning me on to this.

    * * * * Tribloc, n.pl. [origin unknown]. rec.climbing thread characterized by exceptional length but thin content. Often begun by a beginner's technique question that draws self-confident but questionable advice from another poster. Continues indefinitely with attacks & defense, as onlookers experience deepening fatigue.
