To explain for the average ATS'r on here like myself who might be wondering what jungle jake and the other mods mean by 'rickrolling',
it is the posting of a link, often in response to a question or as a link in a 'look at this' type of post etc.
The link then opens a hugely irritating and anger inducing music video
such as Rick Astley's wondrous 80's hit above and often is accompanied by a
special program (for want of a better techie phrase) which continually moves the video around your screen making it virtually impossible to click out
of as you can't get your mouse on the closing red x. I have seen it done with porn also, the idea often being that you will open it at work and then
have to switch off your monitor or unplug your pc to get the damn thing off your screen before anyone hears or sees what you've been tricked into
I'm all for a prank and have a sense of humour (see my avatar ) but
this really does make you want to find the poster and punch their lights out.
Anyway now ya know!
