A clever and fantastic one-off name relevant to the original post.
it was totally a bicyclist.

With provocation, Chameleon Framiliaris can convert into any of a variety of trollis forms.
Scientists hypothesize this is due to the increased anonynimity of the commenter, an application of the Greater Internet Fuckwad
Consistent commenting, on nearly every post, but with something interesting, enlightening or entertaining to say
I’m still waiting for someone to tell me what the actual effects of steroid use on a BASEBALL player are — how many home runs, exactly, how many strikeouts, and how that’s different than the drugs that Babe Ruth or Mickey Mantle took; or how trying to win with steroids is worse than trying to win with biomechanical research, high-tech composites in your shoes, and so forth; and what it says about the era immediately PRECEDING this one, when steroids were much more prevalent — and more primitive — but no one ever got caught.
And of course the coming era, which has probably already started, when players take substances that work ten times better than steroids but can’t be traced or tested for. There’s no test for HGH, even, and that’s old school already.

Can be provoked to extreme fits of anger by imbecilic comments.
Consistent commenting, on nearly every post, generally entertaining and obnoxious
I honestly don’t believe in addiction, Judah. Sorry. Not me. And I’ve had this argument 3,000,000 times already, so let’s just agree that you’re right and I’m wrong.

May lack self-awareness. (See comment above as well as the definition of addictive behavior.)
Compulsivaris Insightfulian Crankus
Persistent commenting on many posts, but with a contrarian’s bent. Frequently viciously obnoxious, but also interesting to read.
So because you don’t wear proper attire and are scared of making a claim on your insurance and hence refuse neccesary medical care, we need to avoid building mass/rapid transit?
Sorry dude, you’re the dumbass. Stay out of the ruts, duh…

The voice of this group is remarkably similar to A Birch Steen. Some have hypothesized that these “many” commenters are in fact Mr. Steen under various guises.
Obnoxious off-topic comments designed to provoke. Often repetitive, noise-like.
Jews can be athiests and still believe that g-d gave us Israel. Judaism is a much more sophisticated religion. If Bill Nye had said G-d didn’t give Israel to the Jews, that would be something to worry about.
The idiot Christians must be forced to give up their g-d, but the Jews will always have Israel because g-d gave it to us. This cognitive dissonance is beyond the intellectual capabilities of most goi, and especially shiksa.

Do not feed the trolls.
Obsessive commenting on transit related posts.
EXPAND IT? WHAT??! WHAAAAAAAAT?!!?! EXPAND IT?!?!?! WHAT?!?!

May be in other groups, but driven to new levels of rage by minor disagreements on transit policy.
