Or he's just a troll.

Given how he also PMs suicide threats but shuts up as soon as you report said PMs to the mods, I'm going with the latter.

I confess: I have my doubts about this new poster. Reason: the situation described seems unbelievably bad. I chose my words with intent -- it's just unbelievable without some corroboration somewhere.

Anything is possible I guess, and I could be wrong, but I hope I'm not, because no-one in the real world should be living in that situation.

Really? I didn't know he did that.

That whole thread is really odd - the prudish reaction to a curse word, nearly stalker-level creepy posts about the writer, asking her about her boss, jokes about a three-way, a borderline "fuck you" to the mods, and throughout it all, completely oblivious why any of this seems weird to people. Is this new territory for BD or has he always had this side?

Reading the Rise of Skywalker thread in CS, I thought I remembered BD having some bizzare things to say in a thread on the prequel trilogy, and searched it down. See how he decended into similar sarcasm and snippyness there when faced with people disagreeing with him?

That is a super-odd thread. I do find this reply to be spot on:

Looks like pool and Mr. Duality are tag-teaming (along with octopus, of course, but what else is new, there) for their sense of compassion , sensitivity , and popularity-fuelled bonhomie in the pit thread on margin.

Hey, I ended up disavowing pool. I was being an asshole, but I remain convinced it was with justification.

May pool die slow and sloppy. Plenty of humans deserve ridicule and punishment, but no animal deserves unnecessary pain.

It's everyone else's fault for not recognizing how witty and clever and funny he is, and the particular style of his wittiness, cleverness and funniness is scorning people who don't recognize his wittiness, cleverness and funniness in an ever-quickening cycle of scornful wittiness, cleverness and funniness.

It's a clear case of Michael Richards syndrome.

Also in place is the grasping at sexual comments when on the ropes (is that a mixed metaphor?). In the stalkery thread, he says he had a threeway with the reporter and her roommate; in the Lucas thread, he goes with "I'll watch a 70 minute review of any movie if it's done by Meagan Fox - and she's naked. (Anne Hathaway would be OK too)."

You accused me of being Trump for saying something critical about your lord and savior, though I did realize I used "Noriega" when I meant "Ortega." I once spent an entire conversation saying "lawyer" when I meant "liar". I've posted links in other comments to videos where Saint Bernie says JFK's criticism of Castro made him "physically sick, and that doesn't happen often," as well as a link to an obscure little blog nobody's ever heard of, which details how Saint Bernie sat during an Ortega demonstration while people chanted, "Here, there, the Yankee must die." That little rag is called The New York Times.

So please detail where I declared bankruptcy six times, bragged about sexually assaulting dozens of women, called President Obama a Kenyan Muslim, shouted "LOCK HER UP!" at Hillary hundreds of times, told approximately 16,000 lies in three years, called all Mexicans rapists, jeered at a disabled man for telling the truth, attacked POWs, attacked a Gold Star family, falsely accused Muslims of dancing in glee at the destruction of the World Trade Center, defended Putin by attacking the US, dreamily pondered on twitter whether Putin would be "my new best friend," hired white supremacists like Yiannopoulos, Bannon, Miller and Gorka; stole money from cancer kids, had my charity dissolved for rampant theft and shocking immorality, as well as was banned from operating any other charity for life----should I go on?

The fact that you consider mild hyperbole against your savior to be equivalent to that and so much more indicates just what a glaring double standard Bros have.

I'm not even touching the crap about my kitty.

I believe that posting history links expire, so there's no point in linking to one, especially when you never provided the name of the person you were calling out.

He's had his eyes opened to the "truth" by YouTube videos from extreme right-wing sources. Apparently "most Americans" are attending Trump rallies, the Democratic leadership are all suffering from Kuru caused by 5G signals, and he's received training on how to identify child molesters from the Boy Scouts (I'm guessing because the classes at the local Catholic Church were full).

I'm trying (but to be fair not very hard) to figure out the third post about real scientists. That one was so incoherent, I'm not even sure what idiocy they were rambling about.

I am fascinated by people like them. How do they function (not well I'm guessing)? How did they fall so low? All evidence that can be twisted to support the conspiracy is true, any evidence that disproves the conspiracy is a cover-up and hence proof of the conspiracy. It is a nice little bundle, but how does one get caught into the trap in the first place? How does anybody get presented with Q, flat earth, anti-vax, etc. lies and even start down that path? In other words, how does one look at the first statement from a conspiracy theorists and not react with "that's really stupid"? Barring mental illness of course, which I'm sure accounts for some percentage of conspiracy theorists, but certainly not all.
