View Full Version : How to piss off everybody....

I recently deleted a thread I started here based on the advise of another poster . I gave time for input from others. Only one suggested I let it stand. Then they attacked me for my deletion.
I've been out of the loop for most of today.
After dinner I logged on to review the more recent posts. If I used the word "virulent" in my previous post let me now state that it was way to gentle after viewing the recent posts on this first page.
"Be civil, or be banned" is not what we see.
I've been here for a while. I remember civil discourse and genuine disagreement between parties, but that is not what we enjoy today.

Deleting a thread that has gone astray is something more OP's should consider. My :2c: JD

I too feel that at least some seem to find civility illusive. As I have always said, first one to call "stupidhead" loses.

So, if one started a thread under the premise that everyone who disagrees with your unstated position is "virulent," would that be tantamount to "stupidhead?"

well.... at times ;)
sometimes folk start a thread with the intent to slam folk. but once the "huddled masses" start typing it will morf into something way cool that the OP never planned and WE ALL learn from.
Murral's "$5 words" thread comes to mind.
Other times folk start a thread and when all the responces are opposit of what the OP wanted they turn tail and run.
Personaly I love it when folk learn and grow and positions or opinioins they HAD evolve because of our potus conversations.
BUT....
when folk just turn tail and run I often think "what a weenie"
If your gonna type it have the backbone to back it or the moral fortitude to admit you are changing your mind.
Admiting you were not quite correct is cool, taking your ball and running away. Kinda wuss like. In my opinion.


BTW I did not see the thread of what you speak at all. So, no clue on the topic or anything.

I sometimes like to voice my own opinion on such threads BUT when folks start attacking me personaly then "I'm out".
It's NOT worth it. I don't need some ahole attacking my character.
Typing here without seeing a person's face is so ooooooooooooo much easier isn't it for cowards.
"If" someone can change my mine Go for it. I'm game.

Hugh, you are right, it has gotten nasty 'round here. Some of it I let pass by because I do not attack sick old men. Some of it I let pass by because I do not think ignorance is intentional. Some of it I let pass by because I understand bitter old people that have failed in a personal quest. Some of it I let pass by because you can not reason with arrogance. And lastly, some of it I let pass by because.......YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID!!!!!!:D;):rolleyes: Now I wonder how many nasty pm's i will get because people decide it was them I was talking about?:confused:

So JDogger let's get this straight, you typed a post on here in which you referred to individuals with right wing philosophy as "virulent" in an attempt to start civil discourse. Are you kidding or what? You knew (or at least should have been smart enough to know) that using an adjective such as virulent would get such a reaction. So either you're not as smart as you think or you're not telling the truth. Either way it doesn't matter to me but come on you are smarter than that aren't you?

JDogger, what exactly was your point? No, not with your response to roadkill's post but your rationale for using such inflamatory language as virulent then pretending to have no idea why you get called on it. Is it your limited mental capacity or stretching of the truth? Please explain. I can't speak for roadkill but as I see it his colorful use of the English langauge and visual imagery is "spot on".

Probably the same reasons UB uses the same type of language against the people are the left.

If memory serves me correct, UB is often vilified for his use of this type of language by the same people who do likewise then sit in judgement of him. Just saying.

Just askin'................

I don't remember (or perhaps didn't see) the initial post, so can't really answer your question, however, either I don't know what virulent means (and that's really unlikely) or I'm just missing something here. I would consider virulent a perfectly good adjective. " ________ _________ seems to harbor a virulent hatred for XXXXXXXXXXX" for instance. Or "The virulence of his dislike of boiled peanuts was obvious to all". One might even go as far as to say "The virulence of his opinions often taints his ability to press home his point." I see nothing particulary offensive or even uncivil in any of those.

Sadly...this IS now. It wasn't that long ago when someone would have typed out your title, with the word used for urination, was as vulgar as the "S" word for defacation. But then....this is now. You have come so far, Grasshopper.

Let me suggest to use more 'LOLs' in your posts, as your comrade that continues to shout at us that he's no woman does. That way we will all know your mental state when you issue 'virulent' statements.

That way we can put in the realm of being blessed...like the wall plaque states, "Blessed is he who can laugh at himself, for he shall never cease to be amused."

Dear Mr. Valued Resource,

Don't take it personally,Bill. I was speaking to the Bill that calls himself 'Uncle'. I'll not go further and make any snarky comments for the time being. I'm cooking and that is my preemptive short-term goal. JD
