Not trying to insult you directly spendius, but have you, or any of the usual suspects really examined why being such a dolt is fun?


I can't speak for the others but I can assure you that all my reading, and I do a lot, is aimed at reassuring me that being a dolt is great fun. There are so many voices raised against such a notion that I need constant, unremmiting top-ups of the energy to maintain it.

Auberon Waugh, of blessed memory, came to the conclusion after a great deal of experience of the ways of the world that goofing off might be the only answer to our woes.

No spendius, et al, it really, no seriously, it really isn't charming, fun, mentally stimulating, thought provoking or anything positive.


Anything a 7 year old lad does should be mentally stimulating and thought provoking. At that age little lads are all the same and so the circumstances are the problem, if such it is, and not the lad. Those who have engineered the circumstances will blame the lad of course not wishing to blame their engineering. Or to put it more brutally--using the lad as a scapegoat.

There are people who might think that you know.


regretfully, one person's needs do not always produce a coresponding sense of obligation in others.

@Lustig Andrei,
No, I don't.
I call those l'obsesso, which may be some built in kind of thing re our different brains.

I've not much interest in chasing people past their stated opinions, to somehow try to change those. I'm primarily interested in the opinions. I admit I'll natter, but that is not usually to turn someone around.

@ossobuco,
I think we should try to turn people around when they are on Mission Impossible leaving the kids to pick up the pieces. Damn right I do.

@ehBeth,
You did that - I got to be one of the subjects of it by my few posts.

******* annoying.

Spendius is harmless, he's just bored and likes to get a raise out of people.
There are others though who believe the crap they're producing and smear it repetitively on the wall just about daily.

I'd let you have the last word, if you really wanted it, Reyn. That's the kind'a guy I am. Laughing

Good thread, Andy

Some of those you named just about drive me to drink.

I don't argue with idiots any longer!

@Lustig Andrei,
Where do these LWF's get the time? So goddamn boring. But, I do like to hear differing opinions from all (some) of the people who frequent this place. Some people do get their headskarves in a twist, or panties in a knot, or their neck bone connected to the tailbone, or something like that.

@Pemerson,
Y'know what really gets me? It's when two people are obviously in general agreement on a topic and still won't allow the other one to have the final say. Classic example: OmSigDAVID and BillRM hijacked Gracie's thread on interracial dating and couldn't stop saying essentially the same thing to each other, over and over again. B-o-o-o-ring.

@edgarblythe,
You should know ed. You've done enough of it. And used accusations of trolling as an argument which, if taken seriously by the accused poster, gets you the last word.

@spendius,
You trollish person, you, spendi. Why don't you go have a nice warm beer and relax with a volume of Phillip Roth? Go on, you owe yourself.

@edgarblythe,
You go on. He won the Booker award I heard. That is sufficient for me. I remember reading about a quarter of Portnoy many years ago. The guy didn't even understand wanking.
