Ok, I don't want to get flamed for this, and I'm not stating an opinion about Downy or about the trolls.
However, Downy has had his account for a while now, it seems, and although he's changed his name and his avatar, he's never claimed to be anyone but Downy. When he's gotten attacked, he's responded, but always under his name.
In general, or at least recently (since I haven't been on here for long), he's been attacked by a number of trolls (perhaps one person creating numerous accounts?) who keeps posting and then deleting accounts. It's hard to take this person(s) seriously, therefore, when an account is created, used, and deleted in the same day. If this person is an oldtimer (I'm certainly not!), I for one would like to see you post these opinions under your original avatar (or at least one that you keep for more than a day), and maybe then you and Downy could work things out between the two of you. That would be a bit fairer to Downy, and I think better for the troll (although then he wouldn't be a troll, if I'm getting this whole "troll" concept right). I don't think this is out of the question, although I might be a bit too Brady on this subject and not realistic enough.
