Coolsie chats must die!

Local live-music-scenester site mono.net is shutting down its forums permanently, after an infestation of trolls (or "coolsie chats" as they call them, for some odd reason).

Also on Rocknerd: a good review of Apple's Garageband music-making tool for OSX. It comes off looking quite decent; apparently it can use arbitrary AudioUnits (and presumably VST plugins with the AudioUnit wrapper). However, it appears very CPU-intensive, and requires a DVD drive to install. (I wonder if it'd install off an IDE DVD-ROM in a FireWire enclosure.)

Nah, "coolsie chats" is what the trolls call the regulars. That and "penguin heads", paedophiles, rapists, drug addicts, etc etc etc.

The coolsies were shut down by the masters of the internet -- THE EGGS. Jesus H Christ have they never dealt with trolls before? Fscking softcocks. They think the internet was invented for them? Elmers.

"Penguin heads"? How is this derogatory? I suppose because every normal (and thus non-suspect) person uses Windows XP or something.

No, because of the Beatles haircuts all hipsters supposedly have.
