    I won’t guess at a pattern, but you’re probably referring to http://kitenet.net/~joey/blog/entry/thread_patterns/ :)

    That was joeyh?

  3. Chris Cunningham Says:

    It was indeed joeyh, but the pattern is less clear. Technically it’s a too-late-for-the-party thread, but the innate k00kness if the guilty party really overrides this.

    Seriously, I seriously worry about the judgement call made where said guilty party was barred from doing everything _except_ the one thing that irritates everyone most of all.

    This obviously is the “I need to reply to every mail in the thread, until noone can stand me anymore” pattern, implemented by it’s inventor, SL.

    the funny thing is that the subversion guy who talked about ‘poisonous people’ at google mention this kinda pattern. Could they have been referring to he-who-shall-not-be-named-on-devel?
