Originally published at "PRT Is A Joke" IS A JOKE v.1
Words written with wildcards (***, !!!, etc.) was the way we originally wrote
Ken Avidor, Ken, and Avidor.

A civil, issue-oriented reader forum, accompanying a Seattle P-I op-ed on BUS Rapid Transit, was disrupted today by a poster going by the name "Soul not sold to road warriors." "Soul"'s comments bear an intriguing similarity to those of ***:

Soul not sold, 9/30/2005 (#2481 & 2488)Known ***-ism
"for more on the BRT scam""for more on the PRT scam"
"VERY VERY wrong (and borderline fringe) for over three decades""PRT has a solid 30-year record of failure"
"Harkness' mad scientist / academic mayhem""pathetic Ed Anderson" "refers to PRT as a disruptive technology"
"absolutely loony and cult-like PRT""PRT is a modern Cargo Cult"

Well OF COURSE "Soul" is ***, all the signs are there:

:: No one mentioned PRT, he brought it up.
:: He immediately goes to the personal attack.
