For the curious, (lengthy) following contains 127 quoters regarding Snit
as a troll. It was initiated about 4 years ago by CSMA Moderator and has

1- Adam Kesher: "Steve, IIRC Sandman's website has a member area and a
login. If you forget your password, you can ask it to e-mail it to you,
and a bot will send an e-mail.
*That* is the e-mail Snit got from Sandman's website, and yes he's that
fucked in the head and starved for attention that he'd claim it to be an
e-mail from Sandman himself. So, don't get sucked into his little circus.
The e-mail, in this particular instance, did probably originate from
2- Alan Baker: "People's perceptions of you are *formed* by behaviour and
not withstanding your occasional on topic posts, I wish you'd leave too.
Please note that despite the amazing silliness that is Edwin, I have
never made the same wish of him." 27 Feb 2005

6- B.B.: "Does the From: header contain the string "Snit"? If yes, then
troll. Otherwise, maybe. Dunno why I had my KF on you set to expire, but
it's fixed now."
Snit: "You are, of course, lying."
BaJoRi: "No, I am not. You know it, and I know it, and everyone else who
has read your idiocy knows it. I took your statement, showed it to be
wrong, then added even more, just to be a dick and REALLY show you to be
a fool. You need to judiciously snip out pertinent points because you are
an intellectually dwarfed turd-burglar." 11 Nov 2008

you kill file Snit. I have never understood why more people don't do the
9- Bob S: "This has always been pretty much a free-for-all group, but
since Snit showed up, its become almost impossible to have a decent
discussion about anything.
The solution is to NOT REPLY TO SNIT. But for some reason, some people
just can't stop feeding him."
