Trolls R Us redux [Now the argument clinic]

Actually been here longer but i turned in my socks to Jenny and she reincarnated my account.

And frankly it’s Gwen who comes off RO’d.

Yeah sure.

I couldn’t figure out what the point of the OP was supposed to be. That and the later posts, when taken as a whole, seem to be all over the place, just being argumentative for the sake of it.

I cannot imagine someone on this message board being argumentative just for the sake of it!

Anyway, whatever it was, it wasn’t trolling, IMO. That’s my only point here.

No, it’s really you. You’re desperately trying and failing to make a mountain out of an anthill.

And then there was this steaming pile you crapped out:

And by “intentionally making up shit” you apparently meant “virtually quoting your own thread title”.

I mean, what the hell, man? Did Gwen Berry piss in your Post Toasties or something? Because you’re really working the RO here on a phenomenally trivial incident.

I recognize that poster. chela is not new, but this is not an atypical post from them. They’re one of those posters who complains about “PC gone amok” in poorly thought out situations, seeming to get them from reading right-wing outrage-bait articles. It’s hard to tell if they really believe that shit and are too stubborn to back down, or are just tweaking people. In my head, I consider them Poe’s trolls.

And, yes, they often come across like they’re spoiling for a fight, which is why I’m surprised they aren’t well-known to this thread. They’re clearly trolling it now.

Oh B S, the athlete was pissing up a rope about the anthem playing while she was on the podium. That’s it, she wasn’t making a show of solidarity, she was acting out a grievance against the organizers.

By “fidgeting and fussing”.

Why was she complaining afterwards about how pissed she was that they had the audacity to play the anthem while she Gwen Berry was on the podium how dare they disrespect her person. Bye Felicia!

Just a little further and it’s uppity and shiftless.

Your contribution adds so much. NOT

You do know she was sanctioned previously for protesting the anthem, and that all the competitors were told the anthem wasn’t going to be played, except once a day. Then she got up there, after some delay, and the anthem was played. She said it felt like a set up to see if she’d protest again and get in trouble.

I don’t think it was, but I can see how she felt that way, and there are people just that petty who’d try to catch her out.

Your fidgeting and fussing is disrespectful to the Pit.

Guess it’s not a stretch for her to think that so then she played right into it. Natch!

From here:

“[T]he national anthem was scheduled to play at 5:20 p.m. today. We didn’t wait until the athletes were on the podium for the hammer throw awards. The national anthem is played every day according to a previously published schedule.”

On Saturday, it was played five minutes after that, at 5:25 pm.

Yeah, it looks like they did this on purpose.

It’s not the death pit you think it is.

And this isn’t the controversy you think it is.

Jeez, what an ugly sentiment. Yeah, something upset her and she acted mildly upset. The horror, she’s a human being.

Well you’ll get over it.

Will you?
