John there are occasional trolls though. there was one for a while up till a few weeks ago. 'changed his moniker every few days but usually based on his anal fixation! also a racist and (not surprisingly) a trump cheerleader. i guess he (?) got banned - or bored.
i don't know why it took so long to get rid of him. i had no trouble recognising it when it was him.

@chris, agreed, taking that troll's attempt at an insult and turning it into a positive was awesome. And Bryce is so nice that he's won over some trolls. It's pretty great. This wasn't from the playlist comments but I also really love when someone said that FMU played too much of "a slowed down echo of two dumpsters crashing into each other for 15 minutes".
