Ever notice how the content changes when someone like John E is around? Why do you suppose that is?

Yep. I could explain it to you. But past explanations have been a waste of time.

"Is that hypocrisy?"...


If you check a thesaurus you'll find that SuperTopo and Hypocrisy are one in the same...

Lame. Sounds like we can safely conclude that you really have no interest in useful dialogue, or any idea as to how it actually happens.

I'm just hanging around, hoping to see apogee dialogue with serious, thoughtful posts.

Norton I post where I want. I don't need a reason. I'm not the one here pretending the sketch insults are mono-directional thing, like its all his fault. Yes he's a dick. It seems liberal mirrors don't tell the whole story though.

You're all whacked. I don't exclude myself. So don't come crying on my sleeve, ok?

See, here's one of the real challenges with hanging out here at ST....

You come in here, start dialoguing with people, and the impression that you create in others minds pretty much sticks with you forever....it's reallllllly hard to change it.

Someone like John E has had the same general tone & demeanor from the start, and he's got a lot of respect around here, and dialogue tends to be more thoughtful.

Those that have come in here with more attitude than content pretty much get slapped around & disregarded, and if you are smart enough to realize why, changing other's impressions of you takes a loooooong time (if ever).

Yeah, I'm speaking from both observation and direct experience. So good luck with that, Sketch.

I know.

Somedays, I make a serious effort to be civil. It doesn't matter. Within two or three of my posts, the haters start in with their same old attacks. No one bats an eye until I start responding in-kind. Then it's righteous condemnation central.

I suggest you make fools of them by purely engaging in thoughtful dialogue. They will drop like flies...

yeah, do it Sketch

make fools of them "libs" by proving you know what you are talking about

prove the depth of your political knowledge by posting like you know it

like telling everyone here why you wanted two "libertarians" to be US President

go over a libertarians stance on the issues, Sketch

you know, how they don't believe in the Civil Right Bill, or Foreign Aid, or SS or Medicare

show us you examined those issues, agreed with them!

don't let us believe you don't know your ass from second base about the "issues"

prove otherwise, Sketch, engage in knowledgable and civil conversation

Sketch is not wrong about that...


Same thing often happens to Ron A no matter what or where he posts...

I don't have the inclination to search for your first posts here at ST, but I'd wager that they were just about the same in tone & content as you offer right now.

Even if one does make an active, persistent effort to change one's tone, the only ones that notice are those where you hang out the most. Elsewhere, everyone else thinks you're the same as ever, esp. if you use the same tone and content.

It's especially a quandary with participating in polititard threads, because while this is kind of a Fight Club, if you try to have a different tone outside of them, too many others just see you the same way.

Yeah, that's too much analysis. Probably much safer and easier to just be a decent, thoughtful, respectful person everywhere you go, and if that doesn't happen, don't be surprised that it comes back at you.
