Another candidate, especially given the questions in the link below.

From a Coronavirus thread:

Anti-white racism and the usurpation of white creations is the only kind of racism that seems to be getting out of hand in the USA.

But that's the tip of a very confused iceberg. Take a look at what runs through his head, apparently non-stop. Disturbing, but perversely fascinating.

Another example of why we need a term for "I'll just flounder, throwing out questions and accusations, hoping to get SOME kind of validation, even if it's negative." Maybe we have Trolls, Attention Trolls, and Confused Trolls.

I didn't understand his (no doubt nefarious) plot at the time. Did he think everyone would be randomly clicking everywhere so they'd hit his link by mistake?

Can we all start doing that? Let's see, for my Insidious Link, I'd choose...

One of the factors that goes into Google search ranking is external links to your site. If you make them invisible, there's less chance of them being noticed and deleted.

I was trying to figure out how or why Sportegan thought this scheme would go totally unnoticed when the links were all underlined.

Father Time has finally caught up to our dear Chronos. In the “spring breakers” pit thread, he objected to supposed overreactions to the virus epidemic. Okay, fine...there probably are certain overreactions (though we many never know for sure), and these can be themselves dangerous.

But discouraging gatherings right now of many young people from all over the US who then return to their homes is factually not an overreaction.

Okay, fine, Chronos is either breathtakingly selfish, or eager to spread dangerous ignorance. In either case, he must resign as a moderator. Sure. But at least it it isn’t trolling.

Or is it? In a post in that thread, Chronos pretended to think that it was just about “beaches” — that the OP was asserting that an individual spending time on a particular geographic feature (stretches of sand near water) was the problem.

That’s blatant trolling, in my book.

That's not trolling, it's just a disagreement about the cost of distancing measures.

Assuming youíre not trying to whoosh me, youíre wrong. I am just as concerned about overreactions with their own dangerous consequences as anyone (just ask my wife, with whom Iíve argued about this).

But in post 49, Chronos wrote: ďIs the CDC or WHO recommending that people stay off of beaches? Is the incidence of coronavirus significantly different in the vacation spots from where the vacationers are coming from?Ē

The first sentence is pure trolling, or Chronos suffered a stroke ó no one is saying that the contact of human feet on silica grains promotes the spread of this virus. (The second sentence I will charitably interpret as demonstrating astounding ignorance about how this virus spreads. I could interpret it as something worse, but Iím trying to be nice here ó overall Iíve appreciated Chronosí many-faceted contributions for the Doper world over the years.)

Chronos seems to want the situation to be not as serious as it evidently is. I don't think that is the only post he's made in the past week that points to that conclusion.

That said, while being misguided or prone to wishful thinking may discredit one's opinions and arguments to other people, they don't constitute trolling, in my opinion.

I never said the misguided wishful thinking was trolling, only the insincere pretending to think the OP was about beaches per se. Pretending to be ignorant of something to rile up others who disagree with the overall position is a (perhaps mild) form of trolling -- but I suppose you have a point, that if the overall position is held sincerely, it's not a big deal. Okay, maybe. I'll downgrade the misdeed to "feigned ignorance meant to delay or obfuscate meaningful discussion."

The reincarnated LAZombie won't last long. What with the frustrating-as-hell server errors and everything else going on the world, the mods seem to have little patience with complete fucking idiots. The poor Zombie -- along with several others who have been here awhile -- was dispatched to the netherworld without even so much as a mention in the ATMB. Of course with the Zombie, explicitly stated reasons were not necessary. His last post alone would have been sufficient.

And I'm going to miss him... not at all!

I often read threads without noticing names or dates, and running into one of his posts in an otherwise-rational discussion was like suddenly stepping on a turd.

Which is all well and good until we lose a gem like that Indian Mail Order Brides thread. That one had real potential.

It'd be one thing if Skald's thread was even about sex, but it wasn't. It was about PDA and how the virus might affect it. No one who didn't have a previous beef with Skald got upset about it.

The only reason people think he's "a troll on the margins" is that they are looking for it. They are scrutinizing everything he posts as if it's some sort of way to get under their skin. There's no clearer picture of this when he gets lambasted for saying he has a girlfriend and discussing PDA--you know, those forms of affection that are so innocuous that we do them in public.

But you guys so thoroughly tied the misogyny and lack of welcoming women that I got called misogynistic for defending the guy, despite being the guy who had been pushing for misogyny (like other bigotry) being treated as against the rules.

And I'm sure it will again. Or I'll be accused of being blind because I like the guy. No, I just see shitty behavior being rewarded. Or just told to shut up, because that sure proves someone wrong!

It really is just that I find this behavior appalling and hate that it is rewarded. This was the most unreasonable one yet, yet it got the worst consequence for him. I say it because I find it wrong to stay silent when the consequences for standing up for the right thing is so small.
Hi, BigT. Since I'm back from my suspension, I can now reply to your ridiculous bullshit.

I've told you before you were the most useless poster I have ever seen on this board, and that's something I might feel guilty about after the fact if you did not prove it time and time again. You go around acting like you're such a friend to the women, yet when someone who has a history of being a rape-obsessed freak gets under a female poster's skin, you write a screed about poor Skald and how he's being attacked by a bunch of haters, likely because several of the naysayers are GB posters too and you're still bitter about that time you were laughed off the board when you socked up over there and tried to rally the posters into participating in email bombing the mods/admins here because you were mad over a warning you received. Fuck Skald, and if you support him, then fuck you, too.

What got him banned? I thought it might be his "AIDS-was-a-hoax" post here, but I didn't see any mod notes.

Edit -- never mind. I see the mods are now just axing people without the usual niceties about it. Good riddance, LAZ.

Do you ever contribute anything to this board other than to rant at the men folk? Look, I'm not saying some of your criticisms aren't legit. But Jesus fuck! You are so fucking one dimensional.

I think you may be confusing: "Posts in various thread about many things" with "Elevates" the board.


That being said I've donated to many Christmas give aways. Started one here even
