Joel On Software on flim-flam

This was back in November 2004, and doesn’t say anything I haven’t also said here, but I’m glad to see that a few other people had the guts to call a jerk a jerk and to at least raise doubts about some very dubious behavior.

That said, if you aren’t amused by flame wars, it’s probably not worth the trouble to read.

    Curt, baby, yet another proof of how gullible you are, how much
    you believe what you want to believe, and how readily you can be
    fooled. That’s how much one can trust the “sources” of the
    nonsense that you constantly spew without any grounding.

    The comment with my byline was NOT POSTED BY ME!!!! It was
    somebody who was just trying to prove that I behave in the way
    in which he/she SAYS I behave (like you do) but did not find
    any such behavior anywhere, so he simulated it.

    I tried to contact the owners of the site and complain about
    it, but got no response.

    If you knew what an ignorant fool you are, you would commit suicide.

    “The comment with my byline was NOT POSTED BY ME!!!!

    Where did I ever suggest otherwise?

    But I did find the parody spot-on …

    Don’t answer my question above. You’ve finally lost your posting privileges on this site. Also, I suggest that you ask your friends (if you have any) to tell you honestly whether they think you’re in need of psychiatric assistance. Death wishes over the Internet are not the product of a stable mind.

    Was that post actually Pascal?

    The post in this thread? If it isn’t, it would be a much better imitation than,
    for example, the one in the Joel on Software thread.

    And now that you ask, it has the same IP address (more or less) as other Fabian
    Pascal posts here in February, albeit not prior ones. And IIRC Pascal took
    responsibility for one of the earlier ones over on Alf Pederson’s blog, although
    I haven’t doublechecked that.

    This is getting silly. If Fabian wants to deny the posts he easily can do, on a
    site that is irrefutably his.
