[1]: Certain off-charter, abusive, anti-Linux or pro-Microsoft
threads will be dropped, depending on their severity, and
hence not included in the stats, which are provided by me
as a measure of advocacy, not as a means of spreading the
Trolls' lies and malice even further.
[2]: The poster 'quality' stats is based on:
a) quoting: 100 - %'age quoted
b) cross-posting: 100 - %'age cross-posted
c) number of direct followups posters articles get
d) troll feeding: 100 - 2.0 * %'age troll followups
e) 75 deducted for known trolls
f) for the humour impaired the quotes around 'quality'
are intended to convey they are not to be taken too
seriously :-)
