Actually, with me, it's all about my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Get to know Him; you won't be disappointed. Best place to start is the New Testament. Take care and God bless
i feel better already
Study hard, pay attention, you may even learn how to spell '' Saviour ''.
My favourite part was when he condemned the analysis of, and commentary on, peoples thoughts, intentions and behaviour by doing exactly that to me.
Hypocrisy in action.
My favorite part was when he analized your thoughts.
Have you been taking comma usage lessons from him, too?
geezus. why do people have to continue playing "grammar nazi" on informal inconsequential internet message boards. it's inappropriate and lame. just everywhere. the same bs.
when people post blurbs on these forums or on blogs, it's not the same as writing a dissertation or something serious like that. this being the case, they are prone to making various grammatical and punctuation errors since they aren't paying it much mind in the first place.
likewise in everyday conversation, most people don't strictly speak proper formal english, as if they are giving a state of the union speech or something. if you did do this most people would find you to be a little idiosyncratic and amusing. normally people use slang, words that ain't even words and end sentences with prepositions. and no one typically gets on their backs about it either.
it's the same thing here. except people are typing as opposed to speaking.
I think you'll find the worse thing was when particular passages from things I have typed, have been split apart in such a way as to, not only remove them from the context I meant it in, but also to even make it seem I was saying the opposite of what I meant, or even being hypocritical.
I get tired of having to write long explanations for how or why what I said was just, while they snicker and write their short little phrases that are more likely to be read, because many people don't like to read, especially something that they know they either won't agree with or that is an incontrovertible indictment of their behavior. So instead they cut and paste like kindergarteners, playing the blame game.
The problem some of the kindergarteners have is that they have a misunderstanding in what a hypocrite is to begin with. They simply think that means it when someone does something and tells someone else not to because it is wrong, but their own jealous, angry,hypocritical nature has blinded them to the fact that their are exceptions to particular things. I will start with an easier one. We shouldn't murder. However, though I say don't murder, I will be the first to tell you, it is ok to kill. There is a difference, that difference is intent.
So back to the idea of interpersonal relationships as it applies to trolling and these forums. I will use an example that was previously under scrutiny. This is the mental health of R.J. Fischer. If we sit and talk about it to run him into the ground, there is nothing edifying in smearing a dead man. Some people need to learn to let people rest in peace. I am sure I'll get some comments for that statement. They love my metaphors.
If we chose to talk about his mental state for any reason that could have a positive outcome, (the list could be long for examples of this), then there isn't anything wrong with exploring what the truth may be. I find that it is that one dirty little word for some, that causes the "true" problem.
Back to the fine line between what a troll is and someone pokin a little fun at you, to have a good time, it is intent. Certainly it can be hard to prove, but often the perpetrator leaves enough verbatim clues, to make it obvious.
It is obvious, some people don't just want to give people here a hard time because they want to share a laugh, but some people here really want to belittle others, make them look bad and make them feel bad. I find it funny though, trolls are such cowards, they would never try any where near as much of this crap in person. They hide their "true" self, that they want no one to see because, they would probably get made fun of again, like they did in high school. It is sad that happened to them. It happened to me, but unlike them, I chose to not be like the scum bags who chose to do it. It is a shame some people can't grow up, they are stuck in high school and can't graduate, that is because, they are still kindergarteners at heart and they have been passed along , to try to get rid of them...
that was the worst post ever!
Cannot be bothered reading it. Having real trouble with attention-span currently. Maybe something decent within that post but the sheer verbosity of it is very off-putting.
i didn't read it either. and no, there's nothing decent.
You say that about everyone's posts. I wish you'd make up your mind. You are worse than a woman.
I already knew you wouldn't read it. I actually made mention of the fact trolls don't want to read anything more than a sentence or two. It would be too challenging as well as its content would be bothersome and deservedly so.
"where are you going ? you can't hide from me!!"
I am begining to think you weren't spanked enough as a child.
You guys are still here?
i didn't read any of that either.
i didn't read any of that either.
Something tells me that you don't know how to read because, you skipped school that day...
Yeah, that, or you have a reputation for circumlocutory banality that immediately tells people that such a long-winded post from you likely has very little actual content.
I read it -- any such assessments will have been accurate.
school's out for summer
If there weren't people like you who enjoyed taking things out of context so much or twisting what I type into something else. I wouldn't need to lay foundations for what I have to say. You are just pissed off because I am intelligent enough to make it harder for you.
The fact you are admittedly familiar with what I have to say tells me your pride and arrogance would keep you from getting anything useful, out of what I type anyway. No surprise really that you'd try to make your ineptness my fault.
i'm making up for it, honey!
You need to tell who ever it is, they aren't doing a good enough job...
Your still in school? I thought you seemed a little wet behind the ears.
No, I'm only partly here still...the rest of me was smart enough to leave a long time ago.
As someone wiser than me once said:
"Yeah, introspection is overrated. Don't bother."
