    That wasn't "Blackbird," Tron, that was our old friend "Memphis Marty," the product liability lawyer who bothered to plagiarize an erudite essay on the law and post on TS.com as his own, if you can imagine it.

    It was, perhaps, "The Greatest Thread" but it was not strictly a troll. It was more of an update on the "dramatic monologue" literary form and a classic of the genre.

    Neil Winston ... not only is the the Prez of the ATA but he is also an admitted troll. Just look on the "The conspiracy continues...." thread where he tells everyone ... "Calm down guys. After all, it was just an experiment to see how many posters in 24 hours would, on the grounds of free speech and wide-ranging discussion attack my own extremely modest - only eighteen words in fact - exercise of free speech." ... just exactly what a troll does, posts something to get to see what peoples reactions are going to be and to see what people are going to say in response ... yep ... my voter for this forums best troll is none other than the President of the ATA Mr Neil Winston.

    Well Jeez, Gordon, I don't know whether you really deserve to be called a troll, but a half-dozen more posters like you, and this site could change it's name to Free Advertisers.com Why don't you ust pony up $15/month for your own commercial site?

    If you can get this thread up over 300 posts in a day, you can have the title if you'd like! :)

    Quack!

    "Best troll" is like asking who is the best hemorrhoid.

    Tron made trolling fashionable on this site. He started as a troll but was converted to a ATA shooter who occasionly tests the waters.

    Tron,

    Those were the days, fer shur. They should put a picture up over the TS.com "Lodge Entrance," showing anglers in flannel shirts with their boat-loads of leg-long Pike, in the Golden Days of Milk and Honey.


    Good old Martskers...we all used up a couple hundred feet of steel leader on that guy! He was like the 98-pound virgin Asian chick you used to study with in college. The ones who every so often, you wish you could have back for about 15 minutes.


    You can only hold onto those for so long, before they figure out you're sport-f_cking them...but he was great while he lasted.
