Drew Dad showed up to insert himself into the thread and the discussion, and then asked why i was attacking you and him. I wasn't attacking you, for however personally and pettishly you may resent criticism of the site. But assuredly, DD had absolutely nothing to do with what i was saying, and it was idiocy for him to claim that he had been attacked. There's a lot of people who go out of their way here to resent what has only occurred in their perfervid imaginings.

Speaking of resenting perfervid imaginings.... please provide quotes of where I claim to have been attacked?

I thanked Robert for his blog post. I said I think your little temper tantrum here is entirely uncalled for. I never claimed to have been attacked, here.

The datacenter hosting the site suffered an outage (the specifics of which they haven't yet fully investigated) and this caused the server power to abruptly cut for about an hour.

It's not phony, it's the real deal.

Absolute bullshit. You frequently attack newbies for being dumb or having a stupid (or sometimes just very conservative) political position even if they don't attack you at all. You frequently attack people just for correcting you (heavens forbid!) or disagreeing with you.

Ever since this site has been open there have been people telling me they are out of here because of you acting like a buffoon. Your notion that you only attack those who attack you is absolute fantasy. You are one of very few who can't clearly see it.

Quote:
If people make personal remarks about me, i respond in kind.


You will do so whether or not they do. You'll call them clowns and jokers and disparage them. You like to pretend you are just giving people their just deserts but that is a self-serving justification for being a jerk.

And this all ignores that few others here go around acting like a total douchebag even though they may have personal remarks directed at them.


Quote:
If they haven't done that, it is highly unlikely that i'll ever treat them so, except in a few rare examples of religious or political lunatics who come here flailing out to right and left, or attempting to spread insidious propaganda. Even those examples are damned rare.


Nonsense, it could even just be someone you've mistaken for asking about homework. You really do have a deluded self-image of yourself where you aren't going around insulting people fecklessly.

Quote:
So don't try to peddle some horse **** story to the effect that i go around this site randomly attacking people on a whim.


That is precisely what you do and something that most people around you can clearly see even if your delusions of civility preclude you from doing so.

Quote:
That's bullshit, and if you were honest--something which i increasingly believe you are rarely capable of, for the way you have treated others, and not just me--you would acknowledge as much.


I certainly can improve the way I treat others. I wish you could as readily admit to being able to improve yours.

Funny you should say that. A business partner of mine who read this topic and who doesn't know you from Adam asked me if you were a drunk. I guess you don't have to be a drunk to be a douchebag.

@joefromchicago,
That's about as good as the answer they gave in the RFO. They claimed it was a "one-second" power outage that occurred during a maintenance window for the backup power systems. Given that this is in your neck of the woods (427 S LaSalle) that kind of scene wouldn't surprise me.

@Robert Gentel,
I was nowhere near 427 S. LaSalle. Well, OK, I was near there, but I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky.

We've got other wonderful examples of bullshit here, too. Fresco has been outraged recently since i challenged his long term claim to unchallenged wisdom. So, he followed me to Lil' Kay's atheist thread, where his very first post was an attempt to irritate me and thereby get a rise out of me. Subsequently, he accused me in that thread of following him around from thread to thread--that despite the fact that he had not addressed the subject of that thread to begin with, and had only showed up to vent his spleen at me. He's doing the same thing here now. This is a typical able-two-know-nothing pile on.

Captain Queeg rides again !

(Seriously though, such paranoia could be cause for concern).

Nothing really left to talk about here. The site is working fine now, and just as free as ever. An improvisational intervention has run it's course. A funny screen capture of a funny character from the movie airplane earns the greatest amount of approval.

This is A2K.

Ah, I see RG has already ably and adequately pointed out the malarkey.

@Diest TKO,
Thank you for the perspective TKO.

Good thing that there's nothing more important going on in the world, right?

You don't follow other people around to lambaste them for their behavior toward others.

False.

A) You brought this on yourself by throwing your little tantrum. You do recall that you started this thread, right?
B) Robert has scolded people for their behavior. It doesn't happen daily, but you are far from being the only one that it has happened to.

Setanta wrote:
there are far, far worse people out there than i when i comes to lashing out at others.

Rationalization. Other people's bad behavior does not excuse your own bad behavior.

Speaking of douchebag behaviors, that kind of invalidation really takes the cake.

@Setanta,
You started off the thread with a tantrum and insults about the site.

Start as you mean to go on, as my grandmother used to say.

@Ticomaya,
Very true. According to Setanta's own standard of behavior, Robert is entitled to treat Set any way he likes, since Set attacked Robert first.

We all come to this forum (or bar, if we wish to pursue the analogy) presumably for a purpose. Encountering each other, or subsets of the group, is an inevitable part of everyone's motivation here. With that in mind a little more cordiality wouldn't hurt anyone ... might even help. Vindictiveness, whether it comes immediately in large doses or later in smaller ones, is almost never a beneficial element of the soup. We've all done it to some degree - myself included - however it is never either necessary or beneficial. There's plenty of fault to go around here. Robert's unique interest in limiting our excesses should be clear to all of us. Imperfections in his technique, if they exist, don't alter his rights and responsibility in this matter.

Let's cool it..
