“Do not feed the trolls” signs from USENET

I haven't made any of these myself. I've just encountered them on the net and saved them for future usage. :-) As far as my judgement goes, they are a part of a common net culture, and have been copied over and over again in public, so from practical point of view, I consider them to be in public domain. From a legal point of view, I don't really know. If there is an author of one or more of ASCII drawings on this page and you have a problem with this page, please contact me at jni@iki.fi.
