Kindly research the difference between self-identification and indictment. When you understand the difference, feel free to correct yourself.



That doesnt make sense in regards to what you posted. At least you tried to be rational.

Thinking I'll make a pizza today.

Any opinions, there?

Yeah, I know, you're ignoring me, but puhleeze. You and I both know that your comment was perjorative.

It's kinda fun having you ignore me.

I should clarify. I'll be making the pizza for me.

Still just attacking people. How about you try a rational thought?
I'm capable of hyperrational thought. I'll answer three questions for you if you'd like, then I go back into pecan-pie mode. Ask away!

Oh, man, I am so getting in on this action.

My question:

Why are there so many self-righteous, sniveling beasts in the world and where do they come from?

Bonus points if you indicate the incantation with which we may return them the sanctimonious realm from which they have issued.

Chip, there's disagreement and there's what we've seen in this thread. I have been [bold]scrupulous[/bold] in refraining from making personal attacks or otherwise violating TOS in my comments in this thread.


Blaze, the premise of this thread amounts to nothing more than a blanket "you all suck" directed at forum regulars. How did you think people would respond? This is a typical troll posted with complete awareness of exactly what you'd get back, just so you could then point at the replies and say "See?! They're monsters!" :rolleyes: This is a classic troll and precisely what I meant about self-fulfilling prophecies.

Ok.

What is the meaning of life?

What came first the chicken or the egg?

Is the glass half full or half empty?

No I think its about the way regulars treat people in the forums. People here are trying to defend ignorance and hate. I believe at least most of us know this is immoral and shallow.

You mean like you calling forum regulars ignorant, hateful, immoral, and shallow? :rolleyes:

This sounds an awful lot like "personal attacks are ok, as retaliation". Is it not correct that personal attacks are against TOS, regardless of context?

And please stop misreprenting my position. As I have told you once already, I was not and am not making a blanket indictment of ALL forum regulars.

As far as self-fufilling is concerned, why do we only seen the usual suspects making the attacks?

I would have been pretty embarassed if my antics had scored me a disciplinary record within weeks of joining.

Again focusing on words not the thought. I did not say the regulars are ignorant, hateful, immoral and shallow. I said "the way regulars treat people". Please think before you rebut.

This is actually a position that has been put forth in the past, with qualification: You need to be on a certain victim list in order to have your own personal attacks qualify as acceptable. Speak to Cocoanut for details on being included on that list.

See, I'd have to truly care about what a bunch of anonymous people think of me to be embarrassed.

Despite the fact that I started off on the wrong foot, I think personal attacks aren't warranted. Unless some really is being a doody head. ;)

Welcome to the human race. People are going to be people. We can wish and dream that everyone would post only the most diplomaticly worded opinions with anything that might offend anyone carefully edited out... or we can be realists, accept that people are going to be people, and get on with having discourse.

I was commenting on Blaze's motive for jumping on your bandwagon.

Because you, like every other human being on the planet, tend to see in others what you fail to recognize in yourself... and have a tendency to want to elevate yourself to judge status rather than see yourself down in the muck with the rest of us :)

The forums are (to quote Douglas Adams) "mostly harmless." Nothing more and nothing less. Put them in the proper context, accept that humans are imperfect, don't take things personally even when they're personal, and join in... or set yourself off to the side and refuse to play until someone fixes human nature (aka when hell freezes over).

Of course humans are imperfect. Step around the issue all you want. The point is you know that some people soul pupose on here is to provoke and insult others.

That would be "sole" and "purpose".

You're welcome.

Don't take it personally. I'm a dick to everyone*. In fact, if you're going to rail against anyone on here, rail against me. I'll fully admit it.




*EDIT: Except Lo. I love Lo. If anyone says anything bad about her ever I'll whale 'em with a aluminum baseball bat.

Welcome to the human race.


Excellent post, Chip. It gives me pause to reflect on this entire forum business.

Thanks for posting it.
