Frenchy's Dead-Cat Bounces

I think it hilarious that this Frenchy character, after being whupped, tricked, checkmated, ground into dirt, exposed as a bootlicking fool and finally ignored, took to this board yesterday with a vigor unusual for even him. The number of his posts illustrates and arm-flailing desperation. One cannot help but admire his perserverence, though, in me, it does elicit some pathos as well, for one can only wonder if he hopes that somewone in authority is watching his valiant fight. (Surveillance being, I guess, the only mirror in which he can admire himself.)

It reminds me of what happens during stock market crashes. After the initial plummet, there's often a session or two of market gains, after which the downward spiral continues. Stock market analysts call these days "dead-cat bounces", which do nothing to stop the impending crash.
