When there is a fly buzzing around it gets my attention too. Once it goes away I forget about it. You are, at best, an irritant. Congratulations on reaching your potential.

Thus, when some Bozo dickhead comes along and displays limited social skills, you become OBSESSED with that person and their impact upon your ego.

People who were primarily interested in the stated topic, atheist thinking, would observe the Bozo has limited social skills and say to themselves "too bad for him", and then return to their topic focused discussions.

You guys are trying to cure the dickhead problem in the least rational manner.
...

As observed by the fogless one, above, the buzzing fly gets one's momentary attention. I suppose that could be categorised as a very short-term obsession. Until... THWAPPP!

But I think there is a difference between Experimenting On A Curious Specimen and Dickhead Relationship Management.

Internet-entities with limited social skills are not, for me, a problem that needs to be managed. But for reasons I won't go into (people who know me understand the reasons) they are useful to probe for a while to add to the BoK I need IRL.

Would you not agree that everyone with whom one interacts impacts one's ego?

Why is that not a good thing?

After all, sometimes one person's "dickedness" is another person's deep insight/necessary intervention/collegial correction...

Good point, well made.

However, dickedness is defined only by our magnificent overlord.

Smile

Seeing as how I don't have a dick makes it almost impossible for me to be a dick.

I say "almost impossible" because there is more than one road to dickensonia land.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Hey...their words, not mine. I liked the earlier suggestion about assholes because, as we all know, they're like opinions - everyone has one. Smile

I've come to see that this is good advice, thank you, which I am now working on. You're right, the only way I'm going to get what I want is make it myself.

Now fuck off.

Indirectly you have by spamming your bullshit ideas and hoping they'll pass. You want popularity, which power fits into. Too bad you fail to understand basic social norms. For a forum veteran, you kinda suck at this.

Then why are you still posting?

All I have to do is type a few words like "you guys are so wrong" or "prove that reason is qualified" or "what a bunch of quipers" and you rush out to meet me so you can embrace the victim experience.

But of course, if you admitted to yourselves that is is you who are CHOOSING to read my posts over and over day after day, and you who are CHOOSING to experience those posts as annoying etc, that would pop the victim fantasy bubble and ruin everything.

If you are not CHOOSING what you read and how you experience it, then I am the master of your mind and you are my slave. Do you prefer this explanation?

Funny how that logic also applies to the fact that you replied to my post. I wanted you to CONFRONT me when I wrote the post you just CONFRONTED me with. You did what I wanted you to do, "slave"... Do you know how fucking stupid you sound? But now, as I am your new "master", I order you to eat your own feces and go bother another forum. Or just start behaving in way that makes people not dislike you here. It can't be that difficult.

Cause you're still reading them fool. :-)

Why is that anyway? Can't control yourself? Addicted to my genius? Are you a slave to Baba Bozo's advanced mind control techniques?

There's a solution to you little problem TwerpBoy. It's the ignore list in your control panel. Look it up, I'm sure you can figure it out.

Quote:Brownshirt and Bozo are good examples of what not to do i.e. "how to irritate people from your first post".

This is false. Sadly, it took me longer than one post to irritate people. I have so much to learn yet! :-)

Seriously....

The reason you guys are so concerned with this "we are irritated!" business is because, as the majority of posts across the forum clearly demonstrate, the primary reason for your participation here is inflating egos.

Thus, when some Bozo dickhead comes along and displays limited social skills, you become OBSESSED with that person and their impact upon your ego.

People who were primarily interested in the stated topic, atheist thinking, would observe the Bozo has limited social skills and say to themselves "too bad for him", and then return to their topic focused discussions.

You guys are trying to cure the dickhead problem in the least rational manner.

As you surely know, the human race is filled with vast armies of dickheads extending out over the horizon to infinity. There is exactly zero chance you're going to be able to manage them all, especially in a forum based on "anything goes".

The practical rational realistic thing to do is manage the one brain you actually have some control over, yours. Don't focus on managing the bozo dickheads, focus on managing your RELATIONSHIP with bozo dickheads.

Bozos can only dent your ego if you are focused on your ego. Otherwise, they are powerless, and thus don't need to be managed.

This is probably going to be challenging here, because forum atheist culture is unsophisticated and focused outwards, on somebody else, that guy over there, and why he's wrong and so on.

Focusing on everybody else is a transparent mechanism for hiding from yourself. He sagely said, while typing about those people over there. :-)

Seriously, bro. Who the fuck are you?

Why is what, anyway? And stop with the mind-master thing; I already debunked it. But if you're so keen to think that way, I did fucking prove that you're *my* mind-slave according to your logic. So, shut the fuck up slave, I don't remember telling you had premisson to talk.

Twerp? What are you, a member of Team Rocket? In that case, I would gladly help you "blasting off again", off this forum and never come back.

Seriously bro, ask a better question, and you'll get a better answer. Your post had seven words, and mine has 23, so I win. :-)
