Whoa. This blows me away.

It's like tripping without chemical aid.

Dear Mr. Troll,

I don't suppose it ever occured to you, but this is not a playground. This is a serious place where members work hard (sometimes) to create something new, useful, funny, interesting or pretty. They also share ideas, opinions, and give inspiration to each other. If your limited mental capacity prevents you to participate in these activities, please go and relieve your clicking urges elsewhere. And if your sole purpose here was to be a nuisance, well, then don't bother to come back until you've learned sense and manners.

Yours sincerely,
Mr. Baggins
