Doomer "DENIAL" first defined. See it here : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

"anyway you weren't around when we were having fun (pre-trolls) quite honestly not even the doomers were really doomers

we were all having fun at your expense"

Doomer Denial Syndrome - noun the tendency of idiots and dolts who leapt to fallacious conclusions regarding the severity of the Y2k non-event to deny they were ever really concerned about catastrophy.
Treatment: two methods: 1) further delude onesself into a contrived sense of correctness about the entire matter - utilise the lack of any substantial data supporting ones contentions and predictions as evidence of a sophisticated and elaborate cover-up (see Yourdon); 2) add salt to the crow for flavour, and remember: those relatives and friends one misled and alienated with insults for "not caring" about the "inevitable" are most likely decent and normal people - despite their choice of a wacky friend or accidental (and embarrassing at times) relation to a doomer, and will likely resume communications within a year or so of the latest doom scenario barrage.
