...or were the keyboards on the 128+ evil?

    The "proper" term for those keys (used on some other boxen as well) appears to be "chiclets".

[LanX]: yep heard the same origin story
[Your Mother]: I like it. I tottered on going into hucksterism because I feel like the world deserves it.
[LanX]: he ... we have a movement here called Anti-Germans based on this
[Corion]: Your Mother: I think that's because (in the west) the Nazi-Germans are recognized as universally evil. Of course, you could do some number games to calculate other measures of evil than "historic losers of second world war" to come up with other evils:)
[Corion]: I've heard "Troll" described as the new Punk, and in a way, it can be as destructive as living the Punk lifestyle, and you don't have to sit out in the cold...
[LanX]: Anti-Germans

[Your Mother]: It's very, very dangerous... Thinking that a group is intrinsically evil... buries the fact that all humans can be so deep that it starts to become likely they will be.
[Your Mother]: LanX++
[Corion]: (also the "troll for trolls sake" could seen be much like the "punk for punks beer")
