Anyone know if there's a technical term for the deterioration of posts 
that occurs on slashdot? You know, things like Anonymous Cowards' multiple 
threads on why "BSD is dead" everytime a BSD article is posted. Or the 
general deterioration into "you don't get laid" over technical posts.

Also, I'm compiling a list of negative geek terms. So far I have "flame 
war", "troll" and "RTFM". Anyone think of any others?
