I feel left out

Recently, it seems the trolls have been infesting all the skeptical blogs around here, but there's one big notable exception: Me (oh yeah, and JanieBelle too, though the adult content on her blog could explain it). So I'm asking you: What am I doing wrong (or right, depending on your perspective)? Do I not post frequently enough? Am I too nice? Do they not get my Terry Pratchett references?

I think physics is on the creobot back burner just now, Infophile.

With biology, they know enough of the language to spruce it around enough to fool the average rube by sounding sciency.

Physics, not so much I guess. They do try to throw in the odd "Quantum Mechanics" reference, or blabber about violating each other's SLoTs, but they just don't have enough of a handle on all the big words to come off as even vaguely intelligent, even to the typical brainless sheep who follow them. When they start babbling about physics, their eyes start glazing over and their tongues conspicuously loll out of their heads. It's a dead giveaway, and they haven't mastered their tell yet.

Give 'em time, they'll eventually get around to soiling your blog.

Oh, and of course there's "The Isaac Newton of Information Theory".

That's a gas, I tell ya'. Or a pompous windbag that's full of gas maybe.

Meh, I don't get many trolls on my blog either. (Then again, I don't really get that many non-troll posts either.) That's not to say I've never gotten a troll post, but they're rare.

And you know, I'm okay with that.
