No, that was NOT "it." I will describe what happened again, for the umpteenth time. The original poster announced very enthusiastically that she had scored a diaper, and she posted a picture of a prefold and a snappi. Then, her supporters made comments like "those are really RARE!" and "oh, I wanted to buy that one but you got to it first!" It was similar to previous threads making fun of hyena stalkings/scores. Then someone asked what made it rare, and one of the original posters responded with "it doesn't have to be rare to be special!
They did not get ripped to shreds. One person posted that they thought the first few posters were trolls from TAO.
Even if it isn't true that we were being mocked, the point is that the troll remark was in response to the belief that we were being mocked. The point is that the troll remark was NOT in response to the fact that someone was happy about their prefold. The prefold itself had NOTHING to do with it.
