Your actions were unbecoming. You should apologize for being a jerk. You know where, you know why.


I don't know where or why, did I miss an issue of National Inquirer?

Just spit-balling, but I'm thinking it's this entire debacle debate.

I tried to find a representative post, but they go back and forth quite a bit in the thread.

Most likely, come back days/weeks/months later to replace all that with links.
We don't usually get those kind of spammers but they exist.

Yup, already gone. The long delay (past the edit window) made me think editing in links wasn't the goal, but of course the spammers don't necessarily know about the short window here.

My first reaction was that it's someone whose first language isn't English who's laying the groundwork for spamming, but that doesn't explain the old threads part.

I heard Tom voted for Arnold Winkelried. I remember reading about a mod loop leak discussing Arnold's great looking legs. Maybe Tom will set this straight.

A bit surprised that our resident GOP apologist/spin doctor, Fotheringay-Phipps, hasn't gotten any love here. There isn't a single solitary thang that the Pubs can do or say that he can't explain away.

That's not really the worst of it. He's capable of fucking up a thread on pretty much any subject with pointless nitpicking and hair-splitting.

F-P put some effort into answering my questions on some non-political issues (real estate investment and replacing my HVAC unit), IIRC. I've found some of his posts very frustrating in other threads, but for those thoughtful responses I'm appreciative.

Then you can call yourself lucky. I have never ever read a useful or at least somehow interesting post from him.

Starting about three quarters down page 7 (and continuing on for the next couple of pages) in the Can right and left agree on anything? thread, The Other Waldo Pepper does a pretty douchey job trying to call into question the idea that the noun version of "illegal" is a slur. Might not be technically trolling, but there's shitloads of him going into verbal contortions trying to justify what iiiiandyiiii rightly summed up as being "shitty".

Yes, because "that's racist" you politically correct asshole. Smart people are less violent. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, most smart kids are white or asian. Maybe it isn't genetics and maybe black people can perform in the right 1% of the bell curve...but they are vanishingly rare. But yeah I shouldn't have mentioned race...though if I had left the words "white and asian" out of that sentence, it would work out to be the same damn thing in reality.

The difference between nanotechnology and FTL/antigravity is that the first technology is in the godamn hands and eyes you are using to type like a monkey on your god-damn keyboard. What do you think your fucking cells are made of, you imbecile! Individual fucking molecular chains put together one peptide at a godamn time, after being made one fucking molecule at a time in biological synthesis paths. But I bet you didn't fucking know that.

Nobody has ever, in all of humanity, found a way to even reduce gravity's pull that passed peer review. And fucking FTL travel means time travel which means paradoxes which means it is almost certainly fucking impossible. Fuck you, moron.

And as for your suggestion : normally, no. But if you were dying of cancer with a month left to live and it's the wintertime, the only fucking way you're going to even have a chance of seeing anything but nothing at all forever and and ever is if you get your moronic brain frozen and hope the future has enough pity on your to resurrect you. You're goddamn right the odds are slim, but they aren't fucking zero, so yeah, if you wanna see a green lawn again that's the only way it could ever happen, no matter how slim the odds are.

In before my no doubt mod warning : sorry about using the f word in my insult-filled tirade above, Darren. Apparently it is against the rules down here in the Pit, which I only read after making the post. Next time I insult your intelligence and call you a moron, I'll make sure to just say moron, not fucking moron. To the mod : sorry, I got angry at seeing Darren, who is so ignorant that he is basically a flat earther on this forum, calling me a crackpot that I lost my temper and I am no longer able to edit my post.

Having the political opinions you do not like or simply being very annoying is not trolling.

I can see that many people can not distinguish between the 'things and positions they dislike' and trolling, and so the boring rule is needed.

That was not addressed to me, but there are some remarkable things going on here, so I feel sort of inclined to jump in. It's kind of odd that you were suddenly motivated to respond to an eight-month old post. Late-night board trolling, or what? But let's focus on this marvelous quote from that little turd of yours that you yourself saw fit to exhume for public display:
But it's not inherently unjust, per say. One tenant of capitalism is that you get what you are able to pay for and what you (or your family) has earned.
http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/...1&postcount=95
"Not inherently unjust per say", you say? You don't say! Here's what I say: your marginal illiteracy would be embarrassing even for someone who wasn't a pretentious blowhard. And I'm bemused by your claim about what "one tenant of capitalism" is supposed to be. Capitalism is not an apartment building, and it doesn't have tenants. Per say.

Malapropisms like this are usually a reliable red-flag indicator of an ignorant douchebag, but the ironclad proof is your general inclination to be a pompous blowhard with a tendency to leap to conclusions and greatly oversimplify highly complex subjects -- in fact, virtually any subject -- based on a limited understanding. Self-replicating galactic factories and nanobots have figured in your universal solutions to almost any problem more times than I can remember.

Don't misunderstand me, SamuelA; we have had some wonderful trolls and blowhards here on the board and you are far from the worst of them, though unfortunately that means you don't get any awards there, either. But here's the crux of the issue, SamuelA: we also have some very knowledgeable professionals, academics, and research scientists here who are legitimate experts in their fields, and who are far more affable -- not to mention immeasurably more knowledgeable -- than you are, and thus stand in stark contrast to your bloviations.

One last thing, in view of that unsavory quote of yours above. Capitalism is the broad outline of an economic system that describes how a society organizes its means of production. It is not a tenet (and certainly not a tenant) of capitalism that in all circumstances you must always only "get what you are able to pay for". Successful capitalism recognizes the value of the society in which it exists and which it serves. And so capitalist societies throughout the world provide services to their citizens that are in the interest of a just, productive, compassionate, and peaceful society, regardless of their citizens' ability to pay -- services like health care, education, and basic food and shelter. Conservatives and liberals may differ as to where to draw the line, but only a total douchebag such as yourself would make the kind of statement I just quoted, demanding no line at all. But then, you just informed us in the above quote that intelligent black people are "vanishingly rare" oddities. The premise is that blacks almost certainly are genetically less intelligent than whites, but hey, technically, "maybe it isn't genetics", so who can really tell, right? You know what? You really are an appalling douchebag.

And I'm bemused by your claim about what "one tenant of capitalism" is supposed to be. Capitalism is not an apartment building, and it doesn't have tenants. Per say.
I always smirk at bullshit posters who try to insult me because I made a minor typo. You can't argue with me on the points, so you hammer me because I missed a comma or in this case typed the wrong version of the word.

I'm using tenet correctly in context. So which is it : I'm so illiterate I don't know the difference between a dude who lives in a rental property and a belief or principle, or I accidentally typed it wrong and spellcheck didn't warn me?

Maybe you don't like me. Maybe you think self replicating machinery isn't ever going to exist and it doesn't solve any problems. But your hypothesis : "ah ha! I caught him misspelling a word, therefore he's an ignorant blowhard" is wrong. I have concluded that other posters are ignorant blowhards, but it took a prolonged exposure and many, many flawed statements in a row...not just one letter wrong.

You need to turn down the gain on your neural weight updates, buddy

I'm not really interested in arguing further whether or not black people do poorly on tests because as you will no doubt point out if the discussion dragged on long enough, "black" is just a visible color and it's entirely possible for someone to be a half black, half relative of Einstein and roll the dice a certain way and end up with that skin color and a genius IQ.

As for the overall point you dragged in, what I was trying to say was that it's a way to do it to take the most successful (as measured by how much money they make/pay back to the government) citizens of a nation and focus your resources there. Kind of like how if you want the best football team in high school, you find the kids who are the most promising in various metrics of athletic ability in junior high and focus most of your coaching effort on them.

This is a way to do it. And I was trying to say that it's been a significant national policy used by the richest country in the world for centuries.

I wasn't actually trying to say it was fair or necessarily efficient. For one thing, there's a principle of marginal diminishing returns. If you have X million dollars to spend hiring more police officers, you might get a greater reduction in crime if you send them to the high crime neighborhood, where they are more likely to find and apprehend a criminal for each shift they are deployed, than a low crime neighborhood.

I can see that many people can not distinguish between the 'things and positions they dislike' and trolling, and so the boring rule is needed.
One note/broken record posters tend to move my needle towards the "troll" end of the scale. YMMV.

Oh sweet Jeebus, SamuelA, I've had enough of your horseshit.I know Mom will probably be bringing the meatloaf dinner downstairs to you at the computer in a little bit, but bear with me:

I think you are a goddamned bloviated moron that speaks more out of an anal sphincter than any other orifice. I have argued with you on the points, but you deflected. I think you're so illiterate out of laziness. You, Sir, are the laziest bastard I have ever met.

You are a goddamned dogbreathed mother-(bless her soul for dealing with you)-loving fucktard. You make claims, provide a metric asston of bullshit, and provide absolutely zero proof. You grandstand from a position of opinion and not fact, and contribute nothing but wasted electrons to every online discussion you participate in.

I hadn't call you out as a troll in other threads because I could not determine if: A) you were just a fucking moron, and/or B) there was malice behind your opinions/posts for motive. I am now convinced you are a malicious, fucking moron (both A and B for your math, simplified for you).

You, at one point, called me out, and I laid down the thunder to your point, but you pulled a Soviet 'whataboutism' to deflect your bullshit and errors, in an attempt to 'redirect' things back to an OP.

Wolfpup brings up a good point that you are a fuckig blowhard in that:

You, SamuelA, throw more smoke and mirrors than Harry Houdini (especially after the fact that you've been called out), and from what I've seen, never answer a question, nor goddamned provide any factual insight into relevant questions. Step away from the keyboard, and take a momemnt to realize there are knowldagable adults here on this message board.

Go eat your meatloaf. It's getting cold.

Meatloaf

Quote:
Ingredients

1 tablespoon good olive oil
3 cups chopped yellow onions (3 onions)
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup canned chicken stock or broth
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 1/2 pounds ground chuck (81 percent lean)
1/2 cup plain dry bread crumbs (recommended: Progresso)
2 extra-large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup ketchup (recommended: Heinz)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Heat the olive oil in a medium saute pan. Add the onions, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes, until the onions are translucent but not brown. Off the heat, add the Worcestershire sauce, chicken stock, and tomato paste. Allow to cool slightly.

In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck, onion mixture, bread crumbs, and eggs, and mix lightly with a fork. Don't mash or the meat loaf will be dense. Shape the mixture into a rectangular loaf on a sheet pan covered with parchment paper. Spread the ketchup evenly on top. Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours, until the internal temperature is 160 degrees F and the meat loaf is cooked through. (A pan of hot water in the oven, under the meat loaf, will keep the top from cracking.) Serve hot.
Not that you didn't just make a mighty fine post, Tripler!

That was beautiful (and sorely needed).

True, nanotechnology does exist ... as nanoparticles. But nanobots, those tiny little machines mentioned in his link? Aren't those still as much science fiction as FTL and antigravity?

That's just what they want you to think.

All living cells are nanomachines and an existence proof that ultimately, no matter how long it takes to develop it, nanotechnology as described by Eric drexler is physically possible.


This is a trivially researched fact and not an opinion, Tripler. Citations available.

Gonna probably add this as a signature to every message from now on. I generally don't waste my time citing facts every educated adult should know.

Also, Tripler, I acknowledge that your point about the President having too much Constitutional power for Congress to start a nuclear war was correct and I argued poorly in that thread.
