The Professor says

Mr Bigsby,

I do not recall you "show"ing me wrong on the 911 thread. I don't remember you posting any convincing evidence. Please post any proof you have to the appropriate discussion.

Thanks

Then you have a very poor memory. Your stark errors were pointed out by a good number of posters. It would be difficult to post the proof from your thread as you deleted it all, but people just need to go to the original 9/11 thread and see what people posted in response to you. You're one of those tin foil hat conspiracy believers (controlled demolitions FFS) who no matter what evidence they are shown continue to hold on desperately to their beliefs. As your arguments became more laughable and repetitive I recall you changed your name to The Professor, presumably in an effort to try and instill your arguments with a sense of gravitas. It didn't work.

My posts led you to The professor moniker? How exactly do you figure that?

You're just a 9/11 conspiracy quack who has now posted that ridiculous image how many times exactly? And which thread is the appropriate one? The one where you can delete any responses that refute your views or the one where the arguments have already been done to death? I imagine you are probably just looking for yet another opportunity to post exactly the same images and videos from your go to crackpot conspiracy websites that you have already done multiple times. Count me out from your mind numbing stupidity.

I could delete your comments here.

Go ahead see if you can refute my views and see if I delete them. I just keep posting that image because it disproves your "theory" and you cannot refute it.

You make my point for me. Why should I give even more oxygen to your conspiracy theories? Pretty much everything has already been covered in the original 9/11 thread and yet here you are trying to kickstart it once again in a completely unrelated thread. Why not just go back and reread that thread, or do you, perhaps, simply want to have a rerun of the thing that seems to get your juices flowing the most? You'll have to forgive me for not wanting another run through of your conspiracy website go to videos. Enough brain cells died watching the videos/reading your posts last time.
And no, that image doesn't disprove the facts (or my theory as you put it). That image, where it came from, and how ridiculous it is has already been explained to you multiple times. If you choose to ignore that because it doesn't confirm your bias, then that is your prerogative.

Most Ignored

http://patrick.net/users.php?ob=ignoredby&d=desc

Number one on the list is Apocalypse. Some people just can't handle his kind of wisdom.

Once again CapShudup makes the top ten. He really gets a reaction.

How did Dan make the top 10?

All 3 of the people I ignore are in the top twenty. This unnamed trio is obnoxious, combative, and annoying. They hurl personal attacks and will never admit to being wrong.

Also never wrong, in the top twenty most ignored, and noteworthy for their anoyingness is Bigsby at number 7, Roberto at number 14, and Iwog at 19 (Barely made the top 20 Iwog). I would not ignore these three because they are often entertaining and occasionally educational. Just don't try to change their minds. They are so smart that your own ignorance may force you to ignore them.

So what? 11 of those came as a consequence of my flame war with DarrellinPhoenix (and his numerous aliases) over the space of a couple of days. Before he appeared on the scene, I hadn't been put on ignore by anyone. Number 12 is Underwaterman, which needs no explanation.

And I'm perfectly happy to change my mind. I do so frequently, but posting daft images and videos from conspiracy websites is not generally the way to change someone's mind if they have any kind of critical thinking skills. You claim to be a professor, so you should understand that, or are you now admitting you were telling a porkie pie in that regard?

Here is another "daft image" from a conspiracy website. Do you recognize this one? It shows how a building can destroy itself.

Yes, I recognize it as you are again posting the same stuff that has already been posted a number of times before. And as before, you seem to have totally failed to take note of the rather glaring differences between the Bazant image and your 9/11 conspiracy theory one, 'professor.'
And your moving on from all this doesn't seem to have lasted very long, has it?

I tried watching that clip and it got stuck at 2:32 mins.

2+3+2= 7

In numerology, the expression number "7" means:
"You are gifted with an analytical mind and an enormous appetite for the answers to life's hidden questions. "

That's from one numerology site. However, another one owned by someone who can't spell worth a shit says it's more about the spiritual and threw out a bunch of words like "chakra" in an attempt to impress me... then they wished me a "Woderful day." (hey - at least they spelled "day" correctly). But these two numerologists disagree with each other, and I'm thinking someone got to one of them in order to have me thrown off the scent.

Please note that I would provide links to these sites, but I truly don't give a shit and will now pour myself a glass of wine. Is it a conspiracy that I've been driven to drink at 1:30p? Hmmm...

You know I was just yanking your chain, right? All of the sudden this thread became about whether or not you are a liar, rather than the childish name calling by a poster...

Oops - I guess we stole the original thread a while back so I have absolutely no room to talk. And yet I can't shut up.

It's a conspiracy!!!

Really? When did that happen?

I didn't say that you are a liar - and my use of the word "liar" was incorrect. Actually, Bigsby used the words "biased" and "wrong." I have no opinion on those either, and I stopped reading that conversation. Hell, he might even have called you a poopy head for all that I know (again, I gots no opinion).

The thing about conspiracy theories is that most of the time they're hard to prove, and even harder to disprove. IMHO, as long as they cast some doubt on the subject, they can't be proven or disproven. I've read some of the 9/11 theories and while I don't believe them, I don't disbelieve them either. I don't know what to believe but I don't spend a lot of time on it either.

Truth be told, I have no problem with you or whether or not you are an actual "Professor." Silly me, though - I just looked up the description of "professor" and you meet it.

The Professor says

I do not have a Phd.

BS = Bullshit
MS = More Shit
Ph.D = Piled higher & deeper

Some of the most highly educated people I've met (3 Ph.D's and years of experience in their field) are dumb as sand in other area and possess no common sense.

The Professor says to Bigsby

you're a good speller.

Not in Europe, and I was under the impression that even in the US, university teachers need to hold a PhD to be referred to as a professor.

elliemae says

Only in the sense that those who believe in them are so invested that no amount of evidence is likely to change their opinion. That isn't the same as being 'even harder to disprove.'

Just wondering, does anyone think of the proprietor Patrick?

He must 'keep the electricity on' somehow by paying to keeping the website online and up to date.

Has anyone ever considered that maybe 'your' behaviour has kept this site from moving forward to something bigger$ for the proprietor? Where he wouldn't have to get a real job?

Of course, I don't know Patrick and if this is just a hobby, then, I am off base.

I enjoy reading and occasionally posting, obviously and am grateful for yes, still, the information that can be retrieved from the site.

I'll just have to come out and say it, I find many of you selfish, very self obsorbed in your own, individual, distinct ways.

Aren't the likes and dislikes weighted according to "ignore"s?

Most of the members who would give the "most liked" more "dislikes" have them on ignore so they can no longer dislike them. Otherwise, they would be giving them a lot more dislikes.

Doesn't one "ignore" count for 40 or 50 "dislikes"?

As pathetic, gratuitous, obnoxious, vile, ridiculous, irredeemable, antagonistic, revolting, childish, foul and gross as I have been, I have only gotten one ignore.

Turtledove, a soccer mom, has one ignore.

Elliemae, a kindly social worker who writes books about helping the elderly and disabled, and helps them to negotiate the byzantine, punishing gauntlet of government/nursing home bureaucratic services, has 4 ignores.

I guess I have to sink to the lowest of the low and start pointing out Sandy Hook photoshopped pictures.

Elliemae in the top ten of most disliked? She seems like such a sweet person?

I used to Like elliemae's comments a lot but she can turn surprisingly nasty. It might be due to her meds, or the pain from her arthritis, or a combination. I don't hate her, but some of her comments are so delusional that I have Disliked those. She has racked up more than a thousand Dislikes; I can't claim credit for more than a tiny fraction of those, but I can guess that other people probably reacted the same way.

Ceffer says

Elliemae...has 4 ignores.

I don't ignore Elliemae, though she ignores me. She can be a sarcastic and tedious booster of Obamneycare, for example, which she sees as the only way to maintain access to her chronic pills. Note that Obamneycare doesn't get her any closer to a cure, in fact that goal is likely pushed further away. Desperation can drive shortsighted advocacy and her comments can get hostile if you don't share her conclusions. That's true for many Obamneycare advocates though; they arrogate to themselves an unmerited moral authority to coerce others 'for their own good', which is a common trait encouraged by both major parties - each for their own reasons of maximizing power.

I don't agree that it's about personas. There isn't an option to Like or Dislike a particular User, though you can Friend, Unfriend, or Ignore. I answered a question about a User account that has a lot of Dislikes, and my answer has already drawn a Dislike, but I don't take that personally.
