On internet pages like "40-funny-error-messages-youve-never-seen-before" it's amusing... but' it could be something that disturbs the fineness of the coffee break (Coffee break: those 8 hours that I take to make my 0.5 hours of coding efficient).

I recently one voted someone for a TERRIBLE article, and he decided to start 1 voting my articles. I tried talking him off the ledge, if he keeps going, I may report him, but overall, you're going to get morons from time to time, if your article is appreciated, the good votes will outweigh the bad, and the message will speak for itself as to the character of the person who posted it.
... you're going to get morons from time to time ...
I'm an old hand at the internet, I know how it works. It's just that, after all my years at CP, I've never had anyone go to the lengths that I felt the need to report. It came as kind of a relief, actually: I was starting to think I wasn't good enough to merit even a troll's time.
Frankly I don't care who played Luke Skywalker, but I know Gene Holgan is a fine-ass drummer.
Deathklok is actually not that bad for a parody band and the show was entertaining for a couple of seasons but it's not my cup of tea. I don't think anyone would really like it if he/she wasn't into metal; would miss a lot of the jokes, references, cliches...
Speaking of parody metal-bands, I would invite you to check out Austrian Death Machine for a good laugh.
I've only seen the first 2 seasons and thoroughly enjoy them. Though you make a really good point - perhaps I like/know metal more than I realize - I certainly get and appreciate an awful lot of the subtle and not-so-subtle jokes. Many aspects of metal music seem to be really technical and well played, even if it's not a style of music I've ever owned, except for the cartoon. Much like some piano and violin music - not necessarily to my taste, but still awesome, from a technical perspective.
Austrian Death Machine sounds like it has potential to be some real fun for me if you know and enjoyed parts of Dethklok's show and recommend it. (I swear Dr. Rockzo is supposed to be a send-up of Jon Bon Jovi)
Thanks for the link, I'll check it out when I get home.
