    I'll admit, that post was one last joke on my side. What can I say, introducing a little chaos is simply too tempting to refuse sometimes. If anyone was at least confused for a second after that, it was totally worth it.

    I was curious how Hеllbokos would react to someone actually trying to steal his identity from him so I decided to create that account and roleplay him for a bit. A shame he didn't pop in to play along, I was really looking forward to confronting him. Ah well, it was fun while it lasted and that's what counts.

    I also learned dynamic IPs work a little differently than I thought. After how I dealt with things, being disclosed because of having the same IP on two accounts was not something I anticipated.

    This is one of those occasions where I wonder why I interfered. That would totally have been something to see. This might've been something to reveal after, if at all.

    Most odd. Judging from what seems to strike your fancy, I actually reckoned that you, if anyone, will consider the situation an enjoyable and refreshing sparring and in the end appreciate the whole plan.

    Use a proxy for one account next time, or Tor. Or something.

    Is this a classic case of give but can't take?

    Oh, come on. Is a little competition really that big of a deal? It's not like you're the only one ripe for parody. But I still feel silly for exposing all of this before you came back.

    You could just ignore HWLFP. Don't quote him, do not reply to him, etc. Don't feed the troll, good sirs. A pure lack of interaction with this fellow. A shunning, so to speak, in combination with a ban. Ignorance can certainly be a weapon to your advantage here. Ignore posts until they are deleted by DF/DE. All you simply need is a little self-control.

    Not as fun as teasing him. You see, arguing with a troll is just stupid.

    Now Taunting a troll, that's just funny. Troll the troll, you know. Fight fire with fire.

    So sorry, but I don't take orders from scientists.

    Been there, done that. Now we troll the troll instead.

    You'll never, ever get everyone to back away from HWLFP at the same time for any significant amount of time. He seems to be getting over trolling anyway.
