Fee-fi-foe,
Goes the newsgroup troller,
Hoping his flames
Will soon spread all around.

Fi-foe-fum
He’s in search of horror,
Fishing for pain,
Till a sucker is found.

Foe-foe-foe
He’s an insult hurler
A porcupine crossed
With a pie-throwing clown

No, no, no!
Scream indignant newbies,
Fanning the flames
So they will not die down.

Don’t feed the troll,
Cries a wary watcher.
Don’t play his game
And he won’t stick around.

PLONK! PLONK! PLONK!
Go the newsgroup readers,
Killing the thread
Till it's dead on the ground.

Pie-throwing clown
Won’t stick around
Dead on the ground
Dead on the ground

I was referring to copyright trolls, people who file spurious copyrights
to get money they haven't earned. They're a close cousin of the better
known patent troll.

I wasn't accusing anyone of newsgroup trolling, and I'm sorry if I
created that impression.
