There were some good ideas on the old guestbook. You could probably roll them into one - in common, none of them seem able to summarize their ideas in plain, concise English.
1 - "Cut 'n' Paste" - People who during battle constantly copy long articles from other sites and paste them in their messages. When people don't bother spending the two hours it takes to scroll and read the whole thing, they dismiss their counter-arguments as uninformed.
2 - "Linker" - People who during battle constantly link to sites. These sites are long, rambling masses of text, and take hours to read. If people don't read the links, this warrior dismisses their counter-arguments as uninformed.
3 - "Bibliographer" - People who, during battle, end their arguments with long lists of obtuse books and articles. Although it would take the average person several months to find and read all these books, if any opponent admits to having not read any of them cover-to-cover, this warrior dismisses their counter-arguments as uninformed.
I've noticed the practice of posting links, and I think there is at least one subcategory there: DeadLinker. The DeadLinker posts links that are either no longer valid or links to sites that lock out everyone who didn't spend money for access. In both cases, the links aren't useful and discourage readers from following links.
