It Takes a Village Idiot: The Jerks of Online Forums

Illustrations by Mike Reed / © PC World

Who ARE these people?

Online comment forums create ample opportunity for behavior of such extreme jerkitude that it can drive even the most patient Netizens batty. You know what I'm talking about: the know-it-alls, fight-starters and doctrinaire zealots who seem to frequent every message board on the entire "Interwebs," using any and every topic as a springboard for their sociopathic gratification. We've sifted through pages of forum messages to find the most absolutely asinine tactics. So get ready to cringe: On the pages that follow you'll meet our nominees for the 12 biggest jerks of the Web's online forums.

Michael Gross:

A gross is equal to a dozen dozen, i.e. 12 × 12 = 144.

It can be used in duodecimal counting. The use of gross likely originated from the fact that 144 can be counted on the fingers using the fingertips and first two joints of each finger when marked by the thumb of one hand. The other hand is then used to count multiples of 12. Therefore, 12 countings of 12 equals 144. It is a simple counting system that can be practiced without paper or other marks.

The term is often used in commercial contexts implying a quantity of 144 items. A count of 1728 or a dozen gross equals a great gross. Though a gross is often said to mean simply "144", it is subject to the usage rules for a unit, as opposed to those for numbers:

  1. it is always preceded by an article or a number;
  2. when the preceding word is a number, it often implies multiplication rather than combining that number of separate counts, e.g. "two gross" can refer equally to a single container into which 288 items were counted, or to a pair of containers into each of which 144 were counted
  3. normally (i.e., save for in situations justifying extreme brevity), specifying the kind of objects being counted may not be done by positioning the kind directly following "gross", but requires that the word "of" intervene, e.g. "288 apples", but "two gross of apples"

Its common abbreviations are either "gr" or "gro".

You misspelled "didn't." This conclusively proves I am much smarter than you and have a much larger e-penis, therefore we should spend the rest this thread sucking me off about how awesome I am. Afterwords, we can watch my youtube channel where I have 400 videos of myself, all of them having been up for several years and with fewer than ten views, bitching into my webcam about how much smarter I am than everyone else and how no one listens to be and anyone who says I am anything less than a visionary is a gob$h!e tallywhacker. Good day, blokes.

OMYGOD IF U AD ME ON UR FRIENZD LIST ON UTUBE ILL ADD U!

My i$h! is the best obscure electronic device ever. It's not on because it's broken, it has a special power saver mode with encryption to prevent theft and said thieves from turning it on.

Amazing...I came here because of the level of maturity, and now C and G trails the Scion forums in the level of maturity of posts.

Glad ya'll are blowing off and having fun, but...

Can't anybody take a joke anymore?

You know, there are a lot of things people post about on here that I don't specifically like, yet I do not complain about (except politics when they invade a thread that was good)

This is as much a junk thread as "what car is the ugliest"

I don't know about you, but I don't got to The Lounge expecting philosophical debates about the meaning of life (although that's welcome too). It's a place to you know, have fun (what a concept!), let off steam, and allow the important forums to be kept mature.
