Oh Sandi!

I am embarrassed that I turned on my first impression.

Maize = corn

And you are still a corrupted moron.

This is a blatant example of internet trolling.

Edit to correct to: This is a blatant example of internet flaming by a troll.

It's not trolling, it's flaming. Though I have no idea what it's in reference to.

What's the difference between trolling and flaming? Mad Howler trolled Sandi with a flame. Is that not accurate?

Trolling is making posts that intentionally rile up folks in order to provoke a response. It's usually in the form of an argument.
ex. "Do you think fewer Americans would vote for Obama if they knew he was born in Kenya?"

Flaming is just outright attacking someone with insults.
ex. "You're a moron."

They're both unpleasant behaviors, but different in nature.

I suspect it's carryover from the forum which shall not be named.

If I know Howler from elsewhere under another name I am not aware of it. Nor have I visited the "shall not be named" forum very often in the last several years.

However raised on a farm I don't need to google maize. :P
