[QUOTE]Ah...the Tass Troll and the name copying troll. They must share an alarm that goes off every time someone on this board posts something optimistic, causing them to quickly switch their underwear to the outside of their pants, tuck a towel into the neck of their underoos and rush to their computers. Soccerboy, you win the award as the trolliest of trolls. You want to take pot shots at the Bruins and provoke Bruin fans, well, that's one thing, but your posts are almost always personal shots against other posters with absolutely no attempt to talk the sport. Name-copying troll deserves more respect even though the name-copying thing is the most infantile of trolling strategies. So I'll answer his question - the last time the Bruins came 1st in the East, they broke through and won a playoff round for the first time in a decade, and took the second round to the limit - OT in game 7. Historically, this sort of encouraging but ultimately failed bid for a Cup when you're a favorite is an invaluable learning experience for a young team - and the Bruins, with many core players under 25 are a young team that is learning from adversity. Now, here, you like imitations so I'll imitate you "Typical Bruin fan apologist just happy to make it to the second round! Yay! They won one round! Idiot." I like to think of it as understanding that building a team with a legitimate shot at winning takes time, adversity, and luck. But then, I actually think.

Book, now I don't feel so bad about being drawn into responding to these people, you just got gamed again, just like I have.
These people (or this person) is reasonably skilled at being a vandal, that's all they can do in life. Clearly not intelligent, not even intelligent enough to change the insults, just change the wording of the insults, that's all.
There must be a web site with the troll instructions. You just have to know a few facts and then just deny or change the rest. Even better, claim you are a fan and then say nothing but disparaging things and claim your sincerity all the while.
That's all they got. Limited vocbulary. Limited facts. Limited hockey knowledge. And derive pleasure from annoying people. Social deviants.
They know that sincere posts are composed of more than 2 sentences and expose vulnerability. On the flip side of the coin, that vulnerability is easily exploited - a child can do it. "I like vanilla ice cream." "only stoopits who have no lives like vanilla ice cream."
