    I'm not sure how many of you out there are aware of this piece of human excrement known as "Roosh V." I don't really think I can come up with more words than that without devolving into a long string of horrible swears and unintelligible noises of anger/disgust.

    Anyway, recently saw articles pertaining to a meet he was setting up for himself and his goons. Then saw them get this response to their activities and it sorta made my day.

    (Yes, the above linked article is a heavily opinionated editorial piece, but... well, if you can even kind of side with people who think in the manner that Roosh and his followers do, then I don't think we can be friends.)

    No, actually, he isn't for real. He's been confirmed to be a real human, but other than that, he's a troll. He tells lies online to get attention.

    Okay - he's real in the physical sense and the rest may be "only an attention grab." However, even if he is "only trolling" the ideas he's promoting and the fact that people are taking him seriously is dangerous and frightening. There is such a thing as taking a prank/character too far and it shouldn't be written off so readily.
