Nortel Insider – by Desk Jockey

The view from one Desk Jockey

A warning to AAN trolls and hateful commenters

with one comment

trollThis has been something that has been bothering us for quite some time: The increasing prevalence of trolls and NT pumpers/cheerleaders that have been flocking to All About Nortel in an attempt to suppress the plain and simple truth.  Their reasons are varied, but it usually boils down to a desire to cover up negative (but real) news so that they will not suffer a loss on the NT stock they made the mistake of purchasing.  In effect, they are trying to enact censorship to make up for their own personal losses and mistakes.

Their tactics are flawed for a variety of reasons, but the main one is that their objective could never really be fulfilled.  In their blind greed, they actually deceived themselves into thinking that AAN has a tangible effect on NT stock price.  To think that a single blog could affect NT is simply ludicrous! If this were the case, why wouldn’t they simply start up a blog of their own, All About Nortel, Good Stuff Edition? As you can see, their actions were not even consistent with their own maligned world view and thus all they accomplished was an unfortunate attempt to cover up the truth and distract others from it.

These trolls/pumpers/cheerleaders have used all manner of tactics in attempt to deceive others into buying NT and covering up the truth.  These have ranged from hateful rants laced with overt racism/homophobia, to childish name calling/profanity and even threats of physical violence against those that disagreed with them.  Furthermore, they have even accused AAN/Mark Evans of being culpable of stock price manipulation, something they themselves ought to held accountable for!  Others, not wanting to display overt hatred, “merely” offered their tacit support for those trying to destroy AAN.

Understandably, these personal attacks could not be allowed to continue.  And so this week the normally benevolent Mr. Evans put a stop to it by instituting moderation of comments on AAN. This move was understandable and we completely support him in this.  A blog is like one’s own home; while it may be open to the public at times, you must abide by the owner’s rules, and most people would agree that the tactics employed by these trolls have been anything but tolerable.  

As a final warning to these trolls or those who would follow them: Do not think that you can come to this blog (Nortel Insider) and “have your way” with it, like you attempted (but failed) to do with AAN.  We here at Nortel Insider will be far less forgiving than the kind hearted Mr. Evans when dealing with comments with such overt hatred in them.  They will be removed and you will be exposed for the fraud that you are.
