You think? I'm flattered. They'll probably burn me out because they're all cowards at heart. And it's a recurring pattern, let's face it.

Eddie, I've re-read the thread, and I can't figure out what you are replying to.

I thought you were pulling my chain about my Ted K. posts.

No, not at all. Just figured KDog was talking about what it would take to get unwanted attention, and I thought adding a couple logs of unabomber to the mix would never hurt.

Knowing what it takes to get unwanted attention is knowing the enemy.

I was up to my antics at Kunstler's site Friday and posted the link to the article.

https://ssi.armywarcollege.edu/pubs/display.cfm?pubID=1358

I was complemented for bringing it to the table.  Troll and non-troll alike loved it and thanked me for the truth.

I was surprised at the degree of positive response but after looking back and reading parts of the report the protection of cyberspace is top priority.  This means some of the trolls have job security so of course they would like the article.  The threat of commenters at the Diner and other websites will continue to be assessed.  Ka-Ching.

I'm surprised this material hasn't gone extreme viral.
I guess now it will.
Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
And stars fill my dream
I’m a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race
This world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
All will be revealed
