Gamma Commenters

Online is a different story [compared to real life], as it is Gammas who tend to make up the vast majority of persistent problem commenters on this and every other blog on the Internet.
-  Alpha Game 

This mirrors experiences on this blog:

Funny, my son tried similar shut with me. I kicked him up out the house. Your mom should've done the same
- "BamaKaren"

What an arrogant sumbitch you are. I teach 4th grade and have for 6 years. Played football for HS and college and could outshoot you 99 time out of 100. Not to mention whip your skinny ass at grappling any day you wanted to try
- "Roger"

I don't get it. First you were conservative. Then you claimed to be a Libertarian. Now you're a socialist! You change your mind more often than some people change their underwear.
- "Anonymous"

Sounds like your dad was an arrogant prick who wanted to show off
- "Erica"

Liberals are mentally ill. But having glanced around you blog, you're pretty much a psychotic asshat yourself.
- "Timothy"

Of course you did post on the FB page that you find it repugnant and the reason why, right? You manned up, right? I can imagine the nuclear fallout from that.
- "Anonymous"

Six comments out of the last 200 on this blog - all from the same source. They are easy to spot, as Alpha Game points out. Even if they weren't easy to spot that way, they all track back to one individual based on site traffic.

Of greater importance, though, I am thankful for the 194 out of the 200 most recent comments. About 30 different folks who have taken time out of their day to read this blog and offer their thoughts. We may not always agree, but usually the disagreement is only in the minor details.

And, to be sure, there's been much more than 200 comments on this blog. But I only searched the most recent 4 pages of comments to find these examples. I've only got a set amount of time to blog, so it must have positive impact for the majority of my readers. 


  1. I'll use my first time commenting here to tell you I appreciate your work.

    The review of the Burris AR-332 and the zeroing pointers will be very handy if my weekend works out right.

    1. Thank you for reading and for commenting.

  2. Six aliases? Whoever it is must have a heckuva mancrush.
