    Pretty neat, but somewhat dissapointing. I’m not really sure what I expected, though.

    Nice one, el_esponjoso. Someone insults Opera and you (a) assume he’s a Firefox fan and (b) insult Firefox.

    Anonymous #2 is definitely an asshat… but that’s no reason to sink to his(?) level.

    I guess I thought it would be more interesting that it actually was.

    Tell me, Who more would came to insult to Opera and its users else is a firefox troll?
    maybe an internet explorer fan or konqueror fan or safari fan or icab fan; but really this possibility is almost null; then only remain the firefox trolls

    el_esponjoso: And the troll’s preference justifies insulting Firefox (with profanity, no less) how?

    You can’t fight trolls by sinking to their level. It just turns it into a flame war and you both look bad.

    el_esponjoso: believe it or not, there are plenty of non-firefox users who might think that this publicity stunt would go unnoticed by most people who weren’t Opera fans.

    I happen to think it’s pretty likely that most people in the world aren’t Opera fans and most people in the world didn’t notice this Opera publicity stunt. It seems an easy conclusion to draw then, that the people who did notice were probably a small number and were probably Opera fans.

    Where’s the harm in stating that and why must a person pointing it out necessarily be a Firefox fanboy?

    aNonymous and second anonymous:
    By the same reason, the ad in Ny Times from one and half year ago nobody had interest or noted some user name or its meaning except by the firefox fanboys that payed for it.
    You started flaming saying “the ad looks so small and insignificant i dont think anyone wouldve notice other than small amount of opera fanboys”
    If you don´t care about Opera and its activities then what are you doing here?
    It doesn´t matter that you are a firesuck fantroll or aren´t; you came here and started saying bullshits, besides the only thing that “LOOKS SO SMALL AND INSIGNIFICANT IS YOUR BRAIN AND YOUR SIGHT”.

    Why one should be nice and polite with people that flame about Opera?
    Why shut up before the stupidities and bullshits that say these fantrolls?
    These people (or trolls) don’t reserve respect by their stupidity and their weak of intelect.

    el_esponjoso: Regardless of whether the trolls deserve respect, what about the other people you’re insulting? What about the Firefox fans who are polite to Opera fans, who see you ranting about “firefuck,” belittling the NYT ad, etc?

    This is a public forum, not a private exchange between you and the troll. Your words, as well as his, are out there for all the world to see. If this is how you want to represent yourself and Opera’s fans, then I suppose that’s your choice. I’m just trying to suggest it’s not necessarily the best one. Check out my website to get an idea of where I’m coming from.
