I can't understand how he finds a way to post so many times. It takes me
almost 20 minutes to write a decent post, and I usually can't write more
than 3 or 4 per day so...

God, he's either paid to do that or he has way to much free time.

You're underestimating him by not including his posts as George Stratus,
among others.

Everytime a new distro comes out he's right there on day one trashing it in
crossposts.  He's also obsessed with creating the perception that IE is the
only browser that works on the Internet.  Since the Internet is such a big
part of what home users use computers for, if he can convince them that if
they switch they will no longer be able to use it then he has won the war
on that one battle.

If there's any one here paid to post anti-linux stuff, it's the flatfish.

I admit that 60% of his replies are off subject, but the amount of text
written by flatfish in a couple of months is enough to fill a couple of
hundreds of pages

I know this is a stupid question, but why should flattie be paid?  As long
as the Microsoft universe does not have a place for USENET very few
technologically impaired people read anything on USENET, not to mention
the comp.os.linux.* groups.

And that's just as flatfish.

I don't think he *is* paid, thus the "if".   I don't even think he likes to
troll and flame for the sake of it.  I think he's a sad pathetic person who
wants to be on the cutting edge but just can't make things work so he
attacks the thing he can't use.

Say you went to one of those "free vacations" where you get to stay gratis
if you listen to the sales pitch.  You think it sounds great, so you sign
up and put down your good-faith money and start making payments.  Then you
go to the condo for your first vacation and you can't figure out how to get
the key to unlock the door.

It's a simple door and a simple lock and you have the simple key.  Dozens of
people come and show you how to unlock the door, but you keep locking it
back trying to get it to work for yourself, but you can't.  So you start
screaming and whining and trying to get your money back, but you can't.

So you create a web page that called http://www.veryComputer.com/ and
rant and rave endless about how stupid they are and how they fooled you and
how they didn't live up to their claims and how no one should ever try out
this company.

Meanwhile there are hundreds of people using the resort, going on vacation
and loving it, easily unlocking the doors to their own condos.  Then you
start protesting in front of the resort, carrying a sign and yelling and
basically having a mental breakdown until you sit in your ba*t and
never leave, posting endless messages about how terrible the company is.

Now, replace "you" in the scenerio above with flatfish and it all becomes
clear.
