THE WAY OF THE K00K
Never learn from your mistakes.
Always practice your mistakes; you may get them right.
Always pick on those smarter and tougher than you.
Always believe that only you know the TRVTH.
Never allow logic or reason get in the way of a good k00k.
When being overwhelmed by logic and reason: k00ksuit!
If you are going to be wrong, do it at the top of your lungs.
When caught in a lie: LIE!
When in doubt: Order the Crab Won Ton
Plagiarism is your friend. Use it.
Whenever contradicted; morph, start calling people names, and make false accusations. Include the children of your target in your allegations, even if they don't have any.
Post numerous blank posts, or posts containing only a message id.
- Post numerous copy&paste web articles from crackerpot websites.
- Never forget to call k00kologists "k00ks."
- If there are several, call them "sockpuppets" too
- Quote notorious scientists or writers - it makes it look as if they approve
the drivel you are writing!
Ignore all traffic signs and feel free to trespass, you don't have to
obey any rules.
Scare your enemies with lawsuits, police escorts and whines.
Always back up your empty (albeit noisy) threats with phony LARTs(1),
false police reports, and harassing letters to the FBI and other
Be vigilant in your redundancy. The more you repeat yourself, the more
likely others will believe you!
If you can't find anyone as crazy as yourself to support you in the
flamewars you start with the normal population, create sock puppets
and use anonymous remailers that shamelessly hang on every word you
- The more your fake personalities adulate you, the more respect you'll
- Always remain clueproof.
- When responding to one line challenges, post paragraphs of rants and screed in response.
- Incoherency is not a roadblock to poasting(2).
- Neither is illiteracy.
- Delusions poasted often enough become fact.
- Claim you will destroy <insert newsfroup(3)> for attacking you.
- When spnaked(4), send cmsg(5) for Fanboi(6) newsfroup(s).
- Find your Lame, Use your Lame, Be your Lame!
- Post Edit when the TRVTH hurts.
- Always sneck(7) the offending newsfroups.
- Always poast pictures of yourself so you can be admired in all your
- Always accuse others of the very acts you are guilty of.
- Post lots of boasts about your high IQ and incredible talents.
- Always <plonk>(8) somebody just before replying the plonkee!
- Write a self-published book and claim it a success. Bonus points for comparing it to "Mein Kampf" and/or the Bible.
- Declare yourself equal to a deity of your choice.
- Claim that you've come from other planets.
- Claim thousands of past lives.
- Frothing complaints carry far more weight when you send them from "legal@" some domain.
- Nothing strikes terror into the hearts of your detractors more than
telling them that you're archiving their messages for possible use in
- Never forget that everyone else posting to Usenet is a paid
disinformation agent looking to discredit you.
- Usenet is governed by US law. If a poster in Romania killfiles you,
he's obviously violating your 1st Amendment rights and can be sued.
- Every news admin in the world hangs out in NANAU(9), and they're just
dying to nuke the account of that meanyhead who just called you "fucknozzle". Drop 'em a line - that's what they're there for, after all.
- AUK(10) will be closed down. Just you wait and see.
- They've nuked hundreds of accounts in the name of free speech and *yours* will be next.
- Abuse women while telling how many hundreds you've loved. Nevermind that you're one ugly motherfucker and that there were 30,000 femininas
that thought you were a scumbag with bad teeth.
- Remember that your ko0ky klaims are 'facts', and that 'facts' do not
- Do not neglect to poast your responses to forums that the originator
doesn't read. This will make the people in that forum very impressed
with how you tear him to shreds without him being able to respond.
They like it even better if you are off-topic for that forum.
- Keep in mind that lack of evidence supporting your konspiracy theory actually _is_ evidence, of how effective the konspiracy is in hiding.
- Any problems with your poasts are the fault of the konspirators, who
are trying to stop you from preventing the extinction of humanity.
- Konspiracies that are able to subvert whole governments are always
unable to silence konspiracy ko0ks.
- The entire United States government is willing to spend millions of
dollars for the sole purpose of harassing you.
- Hollywood is making movies based on your personal life.
- Do not consult psychiatrists or other mental health professionals.
They are part of the konspiracy, and will sedate you and lock you away
and keep you drugged if you tell them the truth.
- Numerology and Astrology are respectable sciences and are useful for proving your case.
- Everyone is Tim Hill, or David Green, or...
- There is a fine line between trolling and kookery. Find that line and
cross it repeatedly. When you are killfiled and/or LARTed for
net.abuse as a result, claim victory. If you lose multiple accounts,
this merely proves that you are indeed a world-class troll, with a
black-belt in manipulation.
- If you respond to every post someone else makes, they're obsessed. If
they respond to less than 1% of your posts, they're even more obsessed.
- Publishing people's real names, addresses, and phone numbers when
there's no other way for you to come out of a flamewar with any
dignity is cool, and proves that you are a master of secret internet
information stores, and absolutely not to be fucked with.
- Everyone is out to get you. You can put a stop to this by telling
everyone that they're out to get you at every available opportunity.
- You are the only sane one.
- Those that give you a hard time about morally bankrupt things you
yourself admit to are just persecutioners of the new inquisition.
- Yelling in all caps and cursing at your detractors is debate. Your
detractors laughing at you with sarcastic remarks is obvious anger and
- If doing something results in the loss of your account, legal hassles, or blunt trauma injury, do it again. It always works better the second time.
- Asterisks, lots and lots of Asterisks.
- Poking holes in kookscreed is stalking, and is a felony.
- K00ks LOVE to "connect the dots". They are, of course, dots that only the k00k can see.
- "They laughed at Einstein, too!"
