We would all like more folks to participate in political forum discussions, but our treatment of each other is creating a Hateful Eight user group.

Stupid, brainwashed, ignorant, uneducated are not terms anyone would like said about them, so we should make our arguments without directing personal insults to other users. I know kindness is not celebrated lately, but treating each other with respect is better for all contributors.

As folks grow older, they usually find that regard for our fellows is the most important impact we can have in the world. Civility is more important in a crowded world than winning.

I've been acting like a total prick I'll admit so okay. I'll tone it down some.

Stupidhead!

Believe me, a user's intellectual capability, background and judgment is usually clear from what they post, we don't need to belabor the point.

Since it is clear the population is getting browner, our forward looking enterprise is most interested in coloring our world!
Dark matter rules, but we will open doors for middle-aged white males of european extraction who have experienced discrimination.

Brainwashed, ignorant, and uneducated are observations and applicable. Stupid is objective so I understand the criticism of that label. Grow some nuts, pussy.

I am ignorant to a lot of things. I will say when I am and I won't cry about it. Maybe we should start a safe place topic where you and the others can go tell each other how good you are to boost your confidence back to a level where you can participate in real discussions.

I wager that you belong to a library network too! With your job and a young family, you are to be applauded in your quest for knowledge.

Observation: POG is a sad man, who has to spread his sadness to try and make his sadness go away.

He always comes back, so obviously it never works proving how unintelligent he is, he continues to lay his hand on the burner but it never hurts to try again, ey? But don't let him fool you, he gets triggered just like everyone else, usually when he starts crafting walls of text about how much smarter he is than everyone and how he PAID to attain his knowledge implying you can't rub three bucks together at Barnes & Noble to expand your horizons or, Christ forbid, utilize the Internet.

If you get more than two lines or the post starts with "lol", you did good. Just pocket the win and move along. He'll either be our overlord in 15 years or he'll screech at the wrong guy and get his face pushed in permanently and that'll be the end of that.

The sad part is you can't distinguish satire from seriousness. Are you autistic? I hear you screeching all the way over here.

You think I am some kind of "keyboard warrior" because that is what you are. I am one of the most open people around my area with my views. I've been punched before...it doesn't hurt that bad. You are still hung up on the post where I asked about what you have studied. I never insinuated I was more intelligent but more informed. Unlike you I do study and look into things that challenge my own beliefs. I take the time to investigate things and draw my own conclusions which was my point in that post. I actually don't recommend people going to college...which I have stated numerous times in other threads that you have commented on but you have the memory retention of a fudging Alzheimer's patient. So, it wasn't my goal to rub a useless college degree in your face because I truly believe most of them are useless. It was to show that I took the initiative to learn something outside my comfort zone while I was there. To question everything I knew from religion to politics and I sacrificed my time and money to do so. That was my point and it is truly sad I have to keep reiterating them.

I don't consider advocating civility, kindness and basic respect for our fellows as weakness of character or conviction.

Especially important when self discipline is necessary to treat those with opposing views well.

Attacking and critiquing ideas is good and necessary, but not the character and assumed motives of people.

Satire. Really?

That's how you wrap all this up? The Kotaku defense, you're just a blog? You are such a fudging pussy, man. I thought you had at LEAST some raisinettes under that belt, but you can't even man up to the fact that you're an butt-hole. It's satire. What a crapty cop-out. I want to tear out the immediate contradictions in your post and point out that you just did precisely what I said you do when you get that anal itch, but it just kinda snapped in my head that I'm just feeding this flaming machine, so I'm going to stop here.

I'm gonna check out, try to salvage some of this time lost, take up a hobby. Cure cancer. Maybe that'll fix this tragedy. For now, I guess I'll just chalk up another win.

Dave, if you depart we will lose someone who can give us the "Stranger in a Strange Land" view from a red state.

It's the Honda Fit thing, isn't it? Embrace the NFL with your soul and we can come to an accommodation!

Sigh. So, predictable and yet still surprising at how dense you are.

It's really not that different from Michigan honestly. Lots of same-people everywhere. Scale just happens to tip right here, is all.

I'm not done here, I'm just done... *waves hand erratically* with that retarded parrot thing.


Actual Events
When you get him, he says he's better than you and writes a wall of text about how dumb you are.

*writes wall of text about how he's better than me and that I'm dumb*

See, totally predictable.

"Well well, what a predictable response from you! Stupid!" Fudge, if he woulda went with "parody" instead of "satire" this whole thing would have just been much more funny.

So happy that political topics have been removed from general. They only creep up when they become "hot topics" and then I just click that "ignore" button. Later.
