For your information I am extremely well educated, I graduated with two bachelors before I was 21, a masters before I was 24

I'm assuming your fan club that likes your posts immediately after you post them is equally well educated ?

Educated is as educated does. Good luck.

Yes. I wish there were an undo feature to Unlike or Undislike. But as of now it is possible to express ambivalence or a change of mind by clicking both or neither.

Call it Crazy says

I know Patrick lets a lot of back and forth go

Which I think s fine. Using colorful language or even a little implied emotion in an otherwise content filled conversation that has some redeeming value is one thing.

But if someone frequently writes comments that essentially say nothing more than "I hate you,...go to hell." Literally nothing more, and not just on very rare occasions, but maybe 10 times in a day,.... that doesn't do much for the quality of the forum.

It's as if either he has some kind of disorder, where he can't see how it appears(lacking empathy), or he doesn't even understand what a forum is, and doesn't care if he has a negative impact on it.

(I know, I know - I have gotten in stupid arguments that were not very interesting to most people( e.g. with Dan or with curious 2). But when I do, I usually later put them on ignore, partly out of a understanding (or even an embarrassment), that other readers don't want to see my emotional response to someones BS, and when it gets to where I feel I'm being trolled or we are trolling each other, in a way that is just a waste of energy, then it's time to just not talk to that person, and not get sucked in to doing so. )

He probably got most of his dislikes from bad spelling.

when i first started to use email back on the old IBM Mainframe 370 with Disk Drum as memory.. we were taught from day 1... forget about spelling/grammar and everything you learned in proper writing... the shorter the better at what ever cost. All because memory was expensive.... in addition email boomed to which more people spent their days reading and writing back more and more emails .. skipping their real daily jobs they were hired to do. So formating a proper letter went out the window really fast.. else you lost your job.

well .. decades later we have billions of users just hogging the crap load of bandwidth and storage... so the same poor spelling/grammer/format writing style still apply and isnt that a big deal.

"Higher qualifications?" Is that another way of saying "Would you like fries with that?"

Just curious - do you also have a Captain Midnight Decoder Ring? Because if you did, that would really impress us.

Is it possible for one to "like" himself too much? We'll know that's been accomplished when his icon is wearing glasses...

A lack of perfection is one thing, which is understood here and in email.

Just not caring is another. Or worse not knowing.

But actually the CAptain has gotten better about it as far as I can tell. Maybe he cut back on the ummm,...

Thedaytoday says

As for my approach, well as I have said I will no longer tolerate the HATEFUL SHIT SPEWED FROM HIS MOUTH!

Somehow, this reminds me of OJ Simpson's statement in 1995:
"When things have settled down a bit I will pursue as my primary goal in life the killer or killers who slaughtered Nicole and Mr. Goldman."

BTW, wtf does "well as I have said" mean? Even if he is trying to save precious space on the interwebs through lack of punctuation, his grammar leaves much to be desired.

Part of it is that he takes an idea that he maybe believes in a way, but then expresses it in an absurdly over the top way to make the point (and also to troll the liberals). At the same time sometimes he is almost intentionally an idiot in some ways that aren't going to change. He thinks of it as an art form, and feels that it makes him unique and special.

You know I can hear you?

Dan, I sure do see a connection between you, 121212, and thedaytoday. Akin to Clark Kent and Superman ... they being your Kent ego, and you being your Superman ego. It's pretty interesting.
Starting groups of topics in waves with a common theme
Time of day activity.
How you use them to flush out the targets, kinda like a hunter uses dogs to jump birds.

I dunno ... sure seems interesting. I mean, I cant find anything like that for ellie, or Iwog, or Roberto, or Leo, or me, or Patrick. But, in the same way we see Shreik appear now and then, I see that with these personas and you. THey being the Clark Kent dogs that flush out some targets for you, Superman the hunter. Am I alone in this? I took a while and checked on topics, activity times, ect. The vacation, weekender, Clark Kent, dog activity from home, vs the Superman hunter activity from work during work hours.

Just playing a hunch, not really suggesting anything negative about Dan. I think it's a smart way for him to find his next target and arguement. Just go over the topic started by 121212 and thedaytoday and see what they do ... they tee up an easy conservative retort, then they attack the conservative poster in a vulgar and vile manner, then the discussion slips into poop, and after a few posts Dan steps in, slays the conservative, and rides off into the sunset the victor. It cant happen so many times on accident, can it?

I think it's brilliant Dan, really. If I am just full of crap and wrong, and it is all just a fluke, then at least do my the favor of ackowledgeing the fluke!! I mean, geeeze man, what are the chances?? Good day.

There's no way Dan is that uber nut-job. Dan can actually post something *intelligent whether you agree or not.

*Intellengent in the sense that he put some thought, his own, into it. Not Intelligence in the sense, "I'm a Liberal and everything you say is Stupid" like others here like to define it.

I assure you that I have never posted to patrick.net under any account except dan8267. Furthermore, if I were a superhero, I would be Iron Man, not Superman, because Iron Man is cooler, less uptight, and has no problem banging lots of hot chicks. Superman would never do that. Iron Man is the Barney Stinson of superheros. Iron Man literally suits up to go into battle.

By the way, check out Barney's Blog. It's getting better.

@ellie,
this new nerd turd poster is trying for a particular persona, and obviously it (the persona) must hate femanine personas too. It must be an important perst of the super educated, hertophobic liberal persona the poster is trying for. I would not take anything posted by this persona seriously. It's an obvious joke or ploy.

"Even higher qualifications" would have mattered if you were referring to something you need to be qualified for... such as a job, or the Miss America Pagent.

But here, in patnet world, your degrees don't matter to us. What would matter is something awesome, such as the ability to effectively communicate your thoughts. You're falling short of this goal in a dramatic fashion.

By the way, "comprehension" isn't a qualification. It's the "capacity of the mind to perceive and understand; power to grasp ideas..." (Dictionary.com). Based on your posts, you are severely lacking in this area - so I believe that I'm speaking for many of us when I say that you might want to change the resume if you've listed it as one of your qualifications.

Frankly, I'm flattered that you've become such a fan of mine that you believe you possess direct knowledge of my ability to "misquote" and "misguide" this forum. Seeing as how I quoted you directly without editorializing, a better description of my abilities might be that I possess the ability to select & quote in such a unique way that you get a little turned on.

C'mon, you know that you do. Probably on a regular basis.

And that can be counted as a qualification. I'm pretty sure of it.

Ignore really does work.

Since thedaytoday put his "last word" in I have decided to ignore his persona.

His persona was vile. Often profane and adds little to the debate.

I appreciate someone who can debate me, try to persuade me, and show me the error of my ways. Attack my stupid ideas and clear me of my ignorance. Don't call me a stupid A-hole without providing convincing evidence.

No, you don't. You simply delete posts that show you to be wrong as evidenced by your ridiculous 9/11 thread.

And you, Mr Bigsby, just like to argue. I have not ignored you because on occasion you have something interesting to say, you are not vulgar, and... and... you're a good speller.

I don't like to argue. I just don't like bullshit to pass. The simple truth is you set up a new 9/11 thread after one had already been done to death so that you could repeat your points from the former whilst also being able to delete those posts that showed you to be wrong. You did this with abandon.
