Well,when even Lindsay Fucking Graham is reduced to defending the Cheeto-faced Shitgibbon by saying that Trump is too incompetent and stupid to even know what a quid pro quo is....

What chance does a messageboard troll have?

To determined whether he has "failed", we need to know what the objective or metric he's "failed" to sufficiently achieve is.

Lord knows HD is a morally bankrupt hypocrite who has made the board vastly worse by his presence, but I don't understand the OP's question.

All Pit inquiries regarding HurricaneDitka should be directed to his special envoy and personal Scut Farkus, octopus.

I had to look up the reference, so learn something new every day! I know the movie but didn't know the character's name. I think octopus is more of a white knight to HD, than a bully for him, but we can agree to disagree.

Anyway, could you be the wittiest poster? I think so.

To the OP: failed? By what measure? He's still adept at changing the direction of threads, shitting on libs, etc.

Hey that's a trademarked derivative which I know you are far too dumb to be the originator of. Sad!

Anyways, all of you folks need to point on the doll where that mean ol' Hurricane Ditka touched you.

Not to imply that anyone takes HD seriously enough to consider him even a moderately menacing bully, but even so, wouldn’t that make octopus his Grover Dill?

I know how much you like small dark spaces, octoputz, but if you keep that up even a proctologist will have trouble extricating you from having crawled that far up HD's ass.

Heh. Always fun to see octopus projecting his snowflakery onto others.

It's okay. The Dope isn't going to hurt you. Sometimes we criticize other Dopers, even harshly. It's okay. Criticism isn't going to hurt you.

Everything is going to be okay.

My guess is there is such a high level of vitriol against an anonymous message board poster that there MUST be something more to it than just words on a screen that you don't even need to read.

He's not "touching" anyone. He just leaves a trail of shitpiles in every thread he's in, and it stinks up the joint even if everyone avoids stepping in them. But he never "fails" to do so.

Id say he's a failed human being. His parents and religion have failed to instill human empathy in him.

Am I the first to point out that this thread is, I think, partly a response to HD’s thread asking if Mexico is a “failed state”?
If so, I applaud the implication that the idea is ludicrous , and based on ignorance. I lived in different parts of Mexico for most of seven years, and continue to have strong personal and professional ties there. It has its problems, but it is very far from a “failed state.”
(I don’t mean to hijack this thread, just to support what I took to be part of its intent).

It's like a deplorables whistle: Octoputz, now LAZombie.

Call one out by name and they all come running to sniff each others ass for reassurance.

How ironic that a groupnonthinking hive member would make that claim.

Carry on with your script execution.

As much as I would rather slap LAZombie with a wet haddock, I have to agree with this. HD, unforgivably incompetent at forming cohesive arguments or even being mildly witty, has nevertheless managed to get a bunch of you yahoos talking about when a sane person would just put him on Ignore and be done with it.

If you actually read the thread you can see gentle mockery on the part of most posters, so maybe "amuses" is the word you meant to use?

Besides, I thought the standard for something bothering a person is go to the Pit and start a thread bitching about it?

"don't read it"??? LOL

HurricaneDitka is not a failed poster. I've seen him post.

Now if you're asking if HurricaneDitka is a failed thinker, that's a fair question.

No, "irony" is someone parroting the same meaningless accusations of "groupthink" and being a "hivemind" over and over again in virtually every thread they appear in without the slightest consideration for context going on about "script execution".

I think the word the OP was looking for was not "failed" so much as "flailing".

Even with a generous free center fill, I'm not sure if that's actually a thing in Bingo, you'd still be shy one stamp.

With the same redundant folks whining in yet another redundant pit thread somehow my redundancy stands out? C'mon iiandyiiii being blind to the hive is your #1 fault.

I don't see the hivemind. Sure we're in agreement with many things, but at the end of it all there are people here who think the Big Bang Theory is good entertainment and I just barely manage to not projectile vomit on them.

A bunch of people who disagree with octopus is not a hive, and not groupthink. You haven't convinced me that there's anything more nefarious or negative going on at the Dope than that its membership happens to be left-leaning (the horror!). You haven't really even tried. Putting actual, real effort into arguing a point seems to be something you lost interest in long ago. Shouting "hive!" and "groupthink!" over and over, again and again, is not an actual argument.

The disagreement isn't why there is a hive. The hive knows it's a hive.

Ha! It's true because octopus says it's true.

What a post! Imagine all the time and effort it took for you to compose such a magnificent argument. Well done! Bravo to you! Truly you are the bestest arguer the Dope has ever seen!

I'll be here when you want to make an actual argument. That doesn't seem to interest you lately.

iiandyiiii, an actual argument where 6 people go around in an endless circle unable to even agree on which dictionary to use to define a word? Those are fun in the upper forums. In the Pit? C'mon now! This thread is just a perfect example of hive behavior is all.

It's unoriginal, redundant, derivative, completely devoid of thought, and worst of all boring!
