Pitting UltraVires

I really liked the ‘stop forcing us to be nice to people or we’ll start a civil war and murder y’all’.
'Cause using force is wrong . . . mostly wrong.

Offered with no comment,

Jesus Christ

Supreme Court justice nominee right here.

Fuck that guy. What a profoundly awful person.

I just came from the guy-masturbating-on-a-plane thread. And yup.

Me, too. Came over to check and see if anyone else was sickened by his posting, and the point he was belaboring.

Point. Singular. He only had one.

And his behavior was really odd. He kept bringing up that same point over and over even when it had nothing to do with what was currently being discussed, or when no one had challenged or even noticed the previous twenty times he’d repeated himself.

He seems to be doing it in more than one thread.

I have him on ignore. Maybe we should all just stop feeding the troll and let it implode under the weight of its own duplicity?

[nods head in fervent agreement]

As was so sagaciously said in “Ghostbusters:”

Generally you don’t see that kind of behavior in a major appliance.

I don’t know this poster, but bad faith would likely be the best case scenario.


Fitting behavior given the subject of the thread. Has it happened at least four times?

His comment about why the Constitution doesn’t require the government to supply an All-star, dream team of attorneys because OJ Simpson can afford one really bothers me in a way that I can’t quite articulate, and can’t quite formulate a response to.

He’s upset that his clients get shitty representation by a guy who doesn’t believe in many of the fundamental rights of criminal defendants under our Constitution. He also, for some reason, blames the rather liberal Warren court for “draconian” penalties that state and federal legislatures have enacted.

Possibly because he has falsely represented the basis for the holding in Gideon. It’s not about “rich people” therefore “poor people” but rather substantive access to a fundamental right afforded by the Constitution, particularly in light of the complexity of the legal system. He either knows this and is lying (should be banned), or should be disbarred for negligent (or worse) practice of the law.

So he can either practice law or he can post on the SDMB. He can’t do both, and then again maybe he shouldn’t do either.

And then asking how that could be a problem in ATMB.

And, yes, I went ahead and responded. Because I genuinely think he might actually be that clueless, and not have just been trolling.

I wonder if the reproductive habits of seahorses would make UltraVires’ head literally explode

Hmm, I wonder if ‘What I meant was…’ works in the courts UV ‘’‘practices’’’ in?

I was reluctant to do it, because occasionally UV has useful information in various fields, but after the last 3 days or so of posts, over a multitude of threads, I just can’t take the bullshit anymore. The goalpost moving, the ‘don’t judge me by what I said, you should have known what I meant’ another, the absolute asshat certainty that he and his are perfect, the casual disrespect for anyone else’s feelings or common decency. It’s enough. A well earned ignore to him.

For the few that are left that are willing to argue with the shitstain, more power to you.

I just hope that the excess of the last 3 days shows that he’s about to flame out into a singularity of such inexcusable shittiness that he gets a well-earned ban.

I ignored him a few days ago. He’s my one and only on that list.

My understanding, based on the recent spat of ATMB threads, is that he simply rejects the notion that kindness is a virtue. There is absolutely no reason to consider, let alone practice, empathy on these boards.

And THAT is the kind interpretation. At this point he’s either a helpless narcissist, an ignorant moron, or a malicious troll.
