From The Jargon File
Troll - 2. n. An individual who chronically trolls in sense 1; regularly posts specious arguments, flames or personal attacks to a newsgroup, discussion list, or in email for no other purpose than to annoy someone or disrupt a discussion. Trolls are recognizable by the fact that they have no real interest in learning about the topic at hand - they simply want to utter flame bait.
In my opinion this is what Chicken's account is doing. By going off on all the XP posts Chicken is in fact taking away from the nature of the site. Looking at Chicken's writeups, I don't see even 1 that is about Perl. All of the above taken into account, there is a fairly strong arguement that Chicken is a troll.
As I already stated Courage's downvoted nodes are the smaller more insignifigant ones (from me anyway) and it is the most fair way I know to distribute the votes. If Courage, actually had any courage, Chicken would not exist, and Courage would be getting these votes anyway.
