He holds his own in the Pit. That makes him okay in my book.
There needs to be some kind of Oscar/Emmy award/Tony award/Stanley Cup or something for this.

Shodan is complaining that "Dopers are trying to bait HurricaneDitka into getting warnings". And he obliquely references this thread: https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...3#post21657123

I guess he thinks actually engaging HD is "baiting" him? Or maybe not engaging him? I'm not sure. Whatever it is, stop it! Stop baiting HD, you evil Dopers!

I wonder why he didn't use the colloquial "employing the HurricaneDitka".

Just like as asking Trump about any contacts with the Russians is setting up a perjury Trap.

So Shodan thinks that baiting people into getting warnings is a bad thing now? That seems to be one of his primary pastimes here.

I challenged Shodan's baiting accusation, and he hides behind bullshit (says that he can't respond in the ATMB even though he brought up the accusations in the first place in the same ATMB thread) but the Mods told us to take it outside, so here we are in the Pit and I'll ask again if Shodan would care to try and back up his accusations.

I baited him too, Shodan. A different time. He totally fell for it and got warned.

You do seem irrationally proud that HD got a warning. I suppose the approval of an online audience or two is its own reward.

Pride is for accomplishments. I didn't accomplish anything here. But I won't deny that it made me chuckle.

Just taking pride that at least most of the audience were intelligent enough to get the joke should be enough, I would think.

Fuck you QQandyQQQQ*, fuck you with all the cactuses that have gone lonely since the ban on “fuck you” has been lifted. I've been out of this place for nearly two months now, finding that I really did have better things to do than to spend time dealing with the trolls and liars that have infested this board (I did put this in this thread for a reason, Fuck you too HD, and in a much less non-serious way than my chiding of mr, “it's four eyes”).

But then I notice that you go start a thread that looks interesting, so I read and follow, and while I'm at it, I pick up a couple others as well. Just when I thought I was out, they bait me back in. I was actually getting some shit done man, and then I find myself spending a bunch of time paging through posts, between people of character and nuance with a great deal of thought behind their words, and a bunch of assholes who seem to get enjoyment only from the ruining of things.



*Q's are just capital eyes.

That said, in this particular instance the stopped clock appears to have been correct.

I mean, HD is still a hypocrite and an asshole but that shouldn't have been a part of the mod note.

I seriously hope he dies a painful death. While he's in the process, I hope has time (while he's suffering) to look back on all the he loved and realize that he's about to lose it.

Also, fuck that guy. If he really is a Mormon, he is literally the worst Mormon I've ever known, and if he's a Christian...well, I mean he's probably average if he identifies as Evangelical, but all of them can painfully fuck them selves in the ass with a concrete vibrator and die as well.

Yes, I agree. The mod note shouldn't say don't do this and then the mod does the same thing.

Now Ditka's posts don't appear for me by default, and I'm proud that I've resisted any urge to view a single Ditka post for months. I do see some when quoted, but I don't know the context.

My question is: Was the unviewed Ditka post in question of the

So you put him on Ignore, and now you want us to read his posts to you? Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose?

That takes passive-aggressive to a whole new level.

It's the most painful part of ignore. Sure, one might be happier NOT seeing Whosie's posts, but then someone answers them. Then you have to open the freaking post to see what the reply was about. You've actually made extra work for yourself instead of making life easier.

Never "ignore". No prob, usernames are right there. I like posters who are brilliant, insightful and knowledgeable. Or better still, funny. Yusta be, some conservative posters were pretty sharp cookies. (They never seemed to have much in the way of funny.)

Add to that, sometimes somebody will answer me directly, in rebuttal. If I don't see them, I don't get to sneer a rejoinder, which might hand a chuckle to a comrade homie. Hell, that's half the fun given up right there.
