cornflakes 2 either take the stick out of your ass or push it up further so it ends you existence


Now I try not to pit board members because I'm not anyone favorite poster and I've made several stupid posts my self over the years but this jackass just pissed me off Now I've ignored his other threads like :

Why do people think or feel that you have to go through school and graduation? Skip all that! https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...d.php?t=895951
Or
How much money have you burned on a girlfriend? https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...d.php?t=895507

How this cheap and possibly myssognistyc jackass came to my attention is in the game room there's a thread where if people come across a game site/store like epic eas origin Ubisoft steam

The thread is here : https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...6#post22303336

His sermon is post #673 and contained such "truths" as

I mean would you go up to someone reading war and peace for free telling them they're wasting their time? I highly doubt it ...... so kindly piss up a rope and then off ....

if you'd bother to read the thread before he decided to spout sanctimonious bullshit you'd fo learned we already know they give us these things so well but the addons and such ......

And no offense but you've just described almost any hobby ever ..... and considering some of your threads id think you are the last person that needs to be giving anyone advice on how to spend time and money

But please pull your head out of your own cheap ass and realize that some of us don't need physical reward whether we acquire it for free or not

I mean if i posted amazon kindle was giving away the first 5 chapters of war and peace free for kindle would i get the same lecture ? i doubt it .. So kindly piss up a rope and then piss off please and thank you

Because we have no evidence that his ass is particularly 'cheap'.
He may be peddling it for quite a bit more than the average streetwalker on the avenue.

Conversely, this 'cheap' price may be an accurate reflection of the quality of his ass. Generally, an active, open marketplace comes to a reasonable value setting for competing goods. If the buyers have evaluated his ass at a 'cheap' price, they are likely correct -- we have no evidence that it is worth more.

All we have to evaluate are his posts, and each SDMB reader will have their own assessment of those.

I think it's safe to say that cornflakes2 is not making friends here. In fact, he's a jackass. Hopefully his tenure here will be brief.

He posted this after chronos officially warned him for threadshitting :

How was it not "reasonable"? I didn't attack anyone, say anything mean, or personal.

If I should have made a separate post about "free games" then sorry but threadshitting? But wow, people need to take it easy. If you disagree with something, please openly discuss and debate me on it. I have no problems with putting together a reasonable and sound discussion.

I'm not going to argue with anyone on this matter. It's not an argument. Enjoy your free games! I have done that too (probably too much if I may say so myself!).
my title stands .....

The poster is clearly a troll and the mods are wise to its shenanigans. cornflakes2 was previously warned for misogyny so that's two warnings now in a fairly short time.

Actually, I am famous but I won't tell you.

Famous and infamous are not synonyms. One would think a high school graduate had learned that.

cornflakes2 I don't know you and don't follow you around the board, but your OP in "how much you burned on a girlfriend" was pretty abhorrent. You were given some good feedback (some of it nicely) and I hope you're considering that feedback. Work on this.

Bingo. Since the OP has been returned to the cornfield, this is closed.
