@izzythepush,
See, there ya go, calling me a plastic Paddy. You are a nasty, racist little ****. I "dredged" those up to show just how quickly you descend into hysteria, and just how prone you are to be the one who starts the accusations and name calling.

I've got a life. It doesn't involve following people around online in order to attack them.

@izzythepush,
If two people disagree with Setanta he will start hinting that they should get a room. It must be a clinching argument in the circles he moves in.

Its as if two people disagreeing with him is proof he is right.

You do not have to believe that a working model has no errors...However, I then think you have to believe that a better working model will come along for you to see, otherwise, you will have no way to know and differentiate if one or multiple new models are going to come along to teach you these logical inconsistencies, so that you can compare the two, or even multiple choices to then decide why you do not believe the previous model actually has errors in it...Or why you believe that it had errors in it...

Do you disagree?


I can see your point but I am not sure if you have to believe it completely but I do think that there is belief involved. Example you can see from past experiences that most working models have been replaced by others that are more correct and a trend can be seen therefore you might believe with uncertainty that the somethings will continue to tale place.

@Setanta,
The only thing you've managed to prove with all your dredging is that you're a prick, and a rather inadequate one at that.

The term 'plastic paddy,' isn't racist at all, it describes a type of ersatz 'irishman' that tries to out irish the Irish. My Irish friends find them every bit as annoying as me. You however, are fuelled by anglophobia, you hate me, Spendi, Fresco and Contrex because we're all British. It's fairly obvious what's going on, even if you don't realise it yourself.

You're a nasty bitter little man, your calling the Dalai Llama a pig was completely unwarranted, and shows you for what you are.

You've only got yourself to blame.

My point was not that I am worried, or that the voting system is indicative as to what has validity or does not...I was saying that based upon the voting system...I think it should just be removed...because the votes do not have any meaning, and it is often used to try to offend people...Or it is easily manipulated by a consensus in the current thread at that time...And it serves no purpose...Or the purpose it was intended for, is not how it is being used...And I think that it is just a nuisance that doesn't really do anything worthwhile, and creates more animosity among members..


I can agree.

I think that the votes do show others feel, I think it can reflect there negativeness and positiveness.

IGM accused me of being a perpetrator of war crimes, or at least of having guilty knowledge of war crimes, that was no freewheeling intellectual exchange. If you can't see the spirit of vindictiveness in such a remark, i have to wonder if you know what vindictive mens.


Being caught up in the moment can lead one to being vindictive at times but it makes me wonder if a person at times has someting of great value they would like to share but are caught up in the emotions of the moment.

Example A husbands comes home from work after working a long hard day and the wife is waiting for him at home to go out for the evening but the husband replies that he is not in the mood tonight and the wife lashes out and accuses him of not wanting to spend time with her, using words that only make the situation worse. Maybe what the wife was meaning is that she loves the times her husband spends with her by going out on Friday night and she was looking forward to it.

If the wife would have took a different approach by helping him to bring his stress levels down by a massage, kind words and time to cool down, "if she may have had a better chance of getting what she wanted. I wonder if this has something to do with being emotionally intelligent?

@reasoning logic,
Now that is truly idiotic. I was not in a discussion with IGM. IGM showed up and jumped into the middle of something else. If you're so dense that you can'ts see what was going on, do us both a favor and stop responding. You're just making a fool of yourself.

Your hypothetical is pathetic.

@izzythepush,
You're the ******* pathetic prick who came here to hurl insults at me, for no discernible reason other than that you are vindictive. Is your life so empty that you've got nothing else to do but run around online looking for people to attack. You're a sad case, Bubba.

Calling anyone who is Irish or of Irish descent a paddy is racist, and it's typical of you. You whine about me calling you Saxon, but i began doing it in response to your constant "plastic Paddy" routine. There is absolutely no basis for an allegation that i try to "out-Irish the Irish." You're delusional. I don't hate you, you're not at all important to me. I don't hate Spurious, because he's not important either. I got tired of reading his drivel years ago, so i stopped doing it. It's high time i took the same attitude toward you. As for Anglophobe, that's hilarious. I don't fear the English, nor do i hate them. You're a legend in your own mind.

The Dalai Lama is a pig, who gets tens of millions of dollars a year in donations and then sits around looking smug and dispensing alleged wisdom. He's never lifted a finger in his entire life to support himself.

You're the nasty, bitter little man. You hunted me up to puke up your bile, and for no other reason than that you're a nasty, bitter little man.

I'm in a wonderful mood, and having a great day. I see you're so low on rhetorical devices that you're adopting the Frank Apisa method (TM) of accusing someone who is critical of what you've written with emotionalism, as though they would otherwise agree with you. Dream on.

Sure bubba, whatever you say...

Btw, you're no more Irish than I am, I'm as proud of my Irish heritage as I am the rest. I don't bang on about it all the time.

@reasoning logic,
RL, to put my side of the story/post: I wanted to know why Setanta felt so strongly and negatively about Buddhism. He was a Vietnam war veteran. I asked if that could have something to do with it because of possible feelings of guilt due to collateral damage. He told me he was in the Medical Corps. By asking I was able to rule out that the reason he despised Buddhists is not (probably) to do with his days in Vietnam. Simple as that. Now you have both sides of the story.

I do have to say that his side of the story was more like a Soap opera "very dramatic.

I think it is particularly instructive that so many of your posts, Setanta, are posts explaining why it was fitting and proper that you were vicious, rude, and hateful in a previous post.

You spend almost half your time being nasty, foul, vulgar, and intolerant…and almost the other half explaining why that conduct was either necessary or appropriate.

No need to explain yourself, Setanta. By now we all realize the kind of person you are and most of us understand your need to make your life more bearable by attacking others.

@reasoning logic,
Setanta's attacks on the Dalai Lama are unwarranted. He supports his people in exile by travelling the world and giving teachings, writing books etc. then schools and hospitals are built along with homes and healthcare for those who literally had to walk out of Tibet across the Himalayas with nothing but the little they could carry. Many died and some shot by the Chinese sniper troops.

Not only that but when he was awarded the 'Templeton Prize' he gave much of it to other children i.e. the poor children of India. He is seen by many to be one of the most compassionate people alive today... but Setanta constantly calls him a pig. Why? Who knows but someone has to address the balance of his outbursts because people may believe his words if someone doesn't say they are incorrect. Both Krumple and FBM have done so in the past but he ignores them and carries on.

@igm,
Igm I respect your defense of the Dalai Lama.
However it becomes hard to stomach, seeing how just yesterday you were making implications that another Buddhist was a "failed cult leader" and implied he was involved in sex crimes. Perhaps you would like to return to that, assuming you still hold that position to be true.

@Frank Apisa,
Not trying to put anyone down but do you see some of these traits among ourselves and that some people have them more than others?

Symptoms

Symptoms of this disorder, as defined by the DSM-IV-TR include:[1]

Reacting to criticism with anger, shame, or humiliation
Taking advantage of others to reach own goals
Exaggerating own importance, achievements, and talents
Imagining unrealistic fantasies of success, beauty, power, intelligence, or romance
Requiring constant attention and positive reinforcement from others
Becoming jealous easily
Lacking empathy and disregarding the feelings of others
Being obsessed with self
Pursuing mainly selfish goals
Trouble keeping healthy relationships
Becoming easily hurt and rejected
Setting goals that are unrealistic
Wanting "the best" of everything
Appearing unemotional

In addition to these symptoms, the person may also display dominance, arrogance, show superiority, and seek power.[7] The symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder can be similar to the traits of individuals with strong self-esteem and confidence; differentiation occurs when the underlying psychological structures of these traits are considered pathological. Narcissists have such an elevated sense of self-worth that they value themselves as inherently better than others. However, they have a fragile self-esteem and cannot handle criticism, and will often try to compensate for this inner fragility by belittling or disparaging others in an attempt to validate their own self-worth. It is this sadistic tendency that is characteristic of narcissism as opposed to other psychological conditions affecting level of self-worth.[8]
