I have a mental image here of a sad and lonely man, in a bedsit
or cramped flat, dishes stacking out of the sink, and the remains
of the last take-away meal waiting to be put into the rubbish
bin. The room is fairly dark, perhaps a single light bulb, but
most illumination comes from a PC monitor, sat pride of place, on
an untidy but obviously well-used desk. There are piles of old
PCI cards nearby, and lots of "windows for dummys" books, and
perhaps an MCSE certificate in a frame on the wall, in view of
the computer user. [...]

So, he fills his empty hours with busy minutes, convincing
himself that there is some value to his interaction with the
usenet community he came to harass. The busy minutes often feel

argument he made last year and the year before, in those endless,
lonely days of empty hours, stretching back as far as he chooses

because he's terrified of seeing himself, in 20 years, looking

Actually, that description aptly fits others beside Flatfish.

One particular troll comes to mind, who continually nymshifts and
mocks Linux advocates by adding their nyms to his in a derogatory
fashion pro'ly has an Air Force secret security clearance
certificate next to his MCSE one.

It also aptly fits one Mactroll who likes to fabricate cloth
about Linux, post links from his website then troll those who
respond.  Fortunately, most on this site sees his moronic rants
(even trolls like cc and Hadron) and ignore him.
