handy, you are without a doubt the single most worthless poster to these boards. I can’t recall ever reading a single thing you’ve posted that is in the slightest thought-provoking, interesting, or anything other than thoroughly drab and awful. If I see your name as the last poster in a thread I don’t bother opening it, even if it’s a thread I started or have been following, because I know without even bothering to check that anything you’ve added to the thread will be a complete waste of my time.
You obviously take some perverse joy in having a high post count. Well golly, anyone could have a high post count if all they did all day long was post one- or two-sentence posts to threads about which they know nothing and have nothing of any substance to add. Is anyone really impressed by your “accomplishment”?
Normally I wouldn’t care about someone who wanted to shit his pathetic life away trying to impress a bunch of total strangers in cyberspace, but two things have pushed me to this point. First, I have had a hell of a time accessing these boards for the last several days. I go long stretches of time without being able to open threads because, I assume, the servers are busy. And what’s part of what keeps them so busy? Processing your stupid shit. Is the slowness of the boards your fault? No, but you sure as hell aren’t helping with your lame-ass, non-responsive, not worth the bandwidth garbage.
The second thing is this thread. Perfectly good little thread, nice factual question with a nice factual answer, and then in you come, squatting down and taking a giant shit all over it. Your claim of what constitues a legal adult in California is false and your “source” of “some [unnamed] lawyer for a BBS near here” is ridiculous. The correct law in California is accessible through 15 seconds on Google, which I know because I found it in that amount of time and posted it to correct your flat-out wrong information. Maybe instead of unleashing your fumble fingers on the board without having the faintest idea what you’re talking about, you could take those 15 seconds and get the right answer, since after all the boards you love to defecate on so much are supposed to be about fighting ignorance.
I’m not an attorney. I’m also not an engineer or a chemist or a ballet dancer or any one of a thousand other professions represented on these boards. You know what I do when I see a question related to one of those fields? I either do the research before attempting to answer the question or I shut the fuck up. Why don’t you try doing the same?
At what point does posting for the sake of post count cross the line from board participation to trolling? No accusation of the latter here, but I have a pretty good idea in my own mind where that line lies and who’s on what side of it.
