Yes, I've read them, until I began to puke.

End twerpolumne rainbow quote

Well see, that's what's so funny, wcg posts those pics in hoplessly idiotic threads to break em up a little. I guess you in your neo-prude state of mind you wouldn't understand that though.

Yes, you see, if you read what I said it might have some evil corrupting effect on your brain, and you must keep to the straight and narrow right-minded path of whatever it is that YOU think is Korrect, and you mustn't wast time on the internet, oh no, the internet is MUCH too important to wast time on.

Well my child, you see, what I wrote is not a quote at all, rather a paraphrasing parody of sorts, but then, I would not exptect you to understand the difference, as you are too young. In truth, if old Harry were alive, I would not think he would want to be credited with what I wrote.

Lois,

Well you sure told me!

Now why in the hell would I ever want to speak with you? You have no sense of humor, you constantly miss the inuendo, and you don't listen very well.

Besides, I've already heard enough psycho-babble to last a lifetime.

Bickering??? Who's bickering? I'm laughing so hard I'm getting an ab workout here.

BTW, your sandwich post was hilarious.

T*R,

I quite agree with you - this man is not worth the effort it would take to dialog with him. In spite of his tirading, however, I would still call him on his remarks to you all over again. I am a very firm believer in defending others who are being unfairly attacked. In your particular case, I like you and I always come to the defence of people I like.

This man is so out of control, however, and I truly feel the best approach at this point is to just avoid him. He wants to believe the things he says about us are true and we are not going to change his mind. I believe that most people are truly descent and good underneath it all. Fact is I rarely find someone who isn't likable on some level. I am not so sure that this man isn't actually a true exception. If he comes around, cools off and apologizes then he will reaffirm my theory about people being basically good and descent. Otherwise, I don't know about you, but I am planning to simply ignore this man. It is not worth the effort to try to meet his mind

Lois,

Did it cost a lot, and hurt very much, when you had your sense of humor removed? How about when you had the follow up where they placed the long stick in your rectum?

What's it like being a true bluenose biddy, with all that venom stored up inside you?

I'd recommend you to the Bluenose Internet Table of Cold Hearted Evil Spinsters & Spouses, but I think you are a bit extreme even for them.

T*R,

You are not a prude at all. We just don't relate to porn the way men do. Here, they are putting up pretty light-duty stuff. But the point is not whether or not you are or are not justified in your views. The point is that you have an absolute right to express your opinions without getting abused like that. I objected to the way he attacked you and I don't care how nasty he or anyone else gets in response, I would still defend you again.

OH my dear, my dear, what have I done???

T*R,

I keep hearing the expression "getting trolled" What does this expression mean? I know what trolls are but what does "getting tolled" mean and how does it apply here?

Hey, Chris,

I've read your "rules of Supertopo.Ē I donít see any rules.

I think itís too late to do anything about the complaints. Youíve left the barn door open; closing the door wonít do any good. The behaviors on Supertopo have been socialized. What you see is what this community is.

Political types wonít go gently to a political forum. Itíll be a death to them. Hijacking must be done where itís not wanted.

In the end, you must decide. Youíre the CEO. Make a decision.

Is the Forum readership the same readership that buys your books? If not, then youíre serving too many customer groups for a little company. Your books and its readersó5.6-5.9 climbers--are the basis for your brand. (This from one of your colleagues I met at The Needles last week.)

Build and protect your companyís brand. (If youíre not building brand, then youíre spending itóand that well is surprisingly shallow.) To build and protect a brand, a company must be extremely clear, disciplined, and focused on who it serves, what it promises, and how well itís delivering on those promises.

MikeL, Man , you need to chill out. You are wired way too tight and come across as seething with suppressed anger. That could cause a dude to blow a puckerstring. Chris will work this out to suit his needs. Maybe he will run all of us off except you. Either way, it's his affair and I'd give odds the sun will rise tomorrow somewhere.

Oh good grief, Ouch! is damned right about it MikeL, CHILL!

Even if Mr Stupid Tacos bans me, if I ever want a topo of some route out west I'll buy one of his. Even if he is a T-W-E-R-P-enabler.

But Ouch, I have not flamed here, not really. I am retired from flaming for several years, after reducing a grown man to raving, foaming at the mouth, incoherent lunacy, in print yet, over, well, nothing. YOU gotta retire after a thing like that, it can never be equaled. Besides, it's a terrible thing to watch someone self destruct on the internet.

I did set Kodos off a while back but that was an accident, and started over the phone, and besides he can't really help it, when the must is upon him.

However, I can't resist a good poke (hehe) at a self rightoeus female, especially one who does not know what being trolled is.

Lois, being trolled sucessfully means someone got your goat, and good. IT means biting hook line and sinker on a bait to powerful to resist. It means your chain has been yanked, HARD.

But this last bit was not a true troll. There was a bit of self inflammation there. I just... fanned the coals a bit.

Flames? No. Smoulder?? Hehe, hell yeah!

This seems to work pretty well on other boards

When writing your messages, please use the same courtesy that you would show when speaking face-to-face with someone. Flames, insults, and personal attacks will not be tolerated. It's fine to disagree strongly with opinions, ideas, and facts, but always with respect for the other person. Great minds do not always think alike, and that's where the fun is! Also, note that messages express the thoughts of the writers, not the board or its moderators.
Ouch!

Jousting and gouging is good sport as long as no one gets too mad and gets their feelings hurt to where it lasts for more than 10 minutes. LOL!

You gotta be able to laugh at yourself.

Its funny Ouch!, I've seen in bars, as probably (I hope) you have too, guys that came to blows over nothing more than comments made to each other. My point is that to think because this is the Internet and this is nothing more that light hearted "jousting", you are not pulling someone else's string to a point where they loose control. Terms like "inciting a riot and instigating a fight" come to mind. When this happens, its easy to blame the other guy for not maintaining control. But in the end, it was the guy that was enjoying escalating the banter that was really at fault.

just saying...

Ouch,

I must disagree. There is good-natured jousting which is genuinely funny such as your Bah Bah comment concerning which I laughed for days. I still chuckle over that remark and some of the other funny comments. And then there is there is the sort of pure unmitigated rage and deep-seated animosity such as I witnessed spew forth earlier in this thread. That sort of bile is not funny at all. It honestly crossed my mind whether this man could actually be a very dangerous and out of control person who would put my personal safety at risk. I was actually surprised you thought that was funny. There is a good deal which goes on here which is genuinely funny. I truly think the salvos which get fired back and forth on some of the political threads are really amusing. Some of the guys here are very whitty, and, indeed, very funny.

What happened here, however, was not funny, at all. It made me wonder if some crazy man was going to show up somewhere, raging and totally out of control. I was taken aback by the depth of his hostility. I have not witnessed that before online and I only rarely witness it in life. His remarks made me wonder whether it could actually be unwise to participate in an online forum from a safety perspective.
