Don't bother, Bill. It's just one of the 10+ or so nymshifts of
/flatfish/ that we've been getting here in the last 24 hours, and so is
the person "Karel Olish", who replies to his own post.
The original post was sent through an open proxy - known to be used by
/flatfish/ all the time - and the reply through Google Groups - also a
posting method of /flatfish./
He's posted loads of articles today projecting different angles and
different stances, a few of them about how "Linux sux" (sic).
You can tell by the use of hard line breaks after a short sentence, the
multitude of posts, the cross-posting and the occasional typos that
it's all the same person.
Said person has already admitted that he's not against GNU/Linux - he
actually uses it - but that he simply and obsessively hates the people
in C.O.L.A., and for some reason I still don't understand, he
consistently goes through a whole lot of trouble for flooding this and
other GNU/Linux groups with these posts, nymshifting and changing
He posts from Google Groups, from Windows and from SuSE, the latter two
using open proxies. He's been doing this on a regular basis - at least
once every week - for at least over a year now, and some would say for
much longer even.
It's amazing that so many people still actually take his posts
seriously, when it's already so obvious that it's him. I can spot him
from a mile away. /Killfiling/ is pointless, as he shifts pseudonyms
and throw-away e-mail addresses - typically from /yahoo.com/ or
/gmail.com/ - more rapidly and frequently than you or I can change
I really don't understand his obsession...
