Troll Bin

It's my first troll, and boy, is this a dedicated one. After I trashed a couple more attempted comments yesterday, here's what shows up today:
Tom (anonymous) has left a new comment on your post "The Word for Wednesday, January 6":

Good morning there. In beautiful, cold, snowy Fonda, NY today. Might look up a mutual friend while I'm here. Someone calls me a liar and refuses to make an enumeration, it just kind of makes me want to know why.

Have a great weekend.

Tom
"Tom," you're an exemplary, grade-A creep. Come and visit me instead -- I'm not difficult to find at all. Or do you only threaten women?

Jerk. And yes, I'm explicitly refusing to enumerate that characterization, so I guess you'll have to try to intimidate me, too. Unless it's a matter of "I only pick on the girls."

Sorry to hear. I've always gotten my share of trolls. :-p It stinks. Gotta wonder if people don't have JOBS?!

Jim, I'm an electronic illiterate, so don't know what a "troll" is in this context. Have the idea it's a nasty commenter, but please fill me in.

Hi, Mimi!

Concerning trolls, Wikipedia says: Troll (Internet), an internet term for a person who willfully, through obscene, offensive or hateful actions (a.k.a. "trolling"), attempts to disrupt a community or garner reactions, attention and controversy.

The troll in question can be seen in action in this comment thread, and also this one.
