I got a little lost, which one is the troll?
I think SmartAlec is the troll while Miller and What Exit are aiding and abetting the troll. DrDeth is an innocent victim and Roo is Just Asking Questions in a totally innocuous way. BigT is, of course, a heroic knight in shining armor.
I think it was SmartAlec, in General Questions, with the lead pipe.
Puh-LEASE, people it’s AleQ–with a Q! Also, I admit nothing.
And somehow I’m the one who gets not warned.
First they came for the disruptive morons who couldn’t spell properly…
And everybody was happy.
The fact that he thinks his long documented history of disruptive behavior is “imaginary” tells you everything you need to know about his grip on reality.
His father once had a grip on reality.
Was that before or after he single-handedly won the war in the Pacific theater?
Hey!, you show some respect!
His father existed once, maybe.
He’s really doubling down on his “thickest skull in the west” routine over in that ATMB thread.
I highly doubt that this is true, but if the Pit thread really DID turn What_Exit against DrDeth, that would certainly be one good thing to come out of the Pit.
He keeps insisting that it is a personal vendetta by What_Exit in spite of all the evidence that is presented to the contrary, and that he is a (poor me) victim of unfairness.
Something about that approach sounds vaguely familiar… who could I be thinking of?
It looks like Asperger Syndrome to me. From wikipedia:
Asperger syndrome is distinguished by a pattern of symptoms rather than a single symptom. It is characterized by qualitative impairment in social interaction, by stereotyped and restricted patterns of behavior, activities, and interests, and by no clinically significant delay in cognitive development or general delay in language. Intense preoccupation with a narrow subject, one-sided verbosity, restricted prosody, and physical clumsiness are typical of the condition, but are not required for diagnosis
Eh, could be – and he has it worse than I do.
Eh. I’m leery of internet diagnoses of this kind of thing. A lot of those Aspie symptoms are also symptomatic for being an argumentative blowhard jackass. “Contrarian dick” is not a point on the spectrum.
Besides, he doesn’t seem all that narrowly-focused. He’s an argumentative asshole on a wide variety of topics.
That rules out Asperger.
He’s an argumentative asshole who doesn’t bother to vet Google results.
If DrDeth hates the pit so much that he refused to even read this thread about himself until he was more or less forced into it (personally I think he’s been reading it all along and loving it) why did he start a big long pit thread over Game of Thrones spoilers? Not only that, but calling someone stupid and illiterate because they don’t want to talk about the books in a TV show thread?
I believe his attitude toward the Pit changed in the past 8 years. At any rate, they’re both jackasses in their own ways.
