Look, let me explain to you all, again....what this is all about. On whatever post I post on, One is usually always there, to find any little thing to try and use to contradict me, or put me down, or belittle me. I mean seriously. This's been going on for a while now, and I usually end up debating him, and it dampers other peoples threads. Well yesterday on Andy's thread, I felt, okay this is enough...if you want to debate me, or have a discussion....we can do that, on our own thread, and we can do it all we want, 5, 10, 20 pages...without taking over and ruining other peoples blogs. Okay. That was the motive behind this.
But...so far...Mr. One hasn't come lol And you can call that intelligence, or whatever....first of all, he's not that intelligent to begin with....second of all, you can bet that in future posts I post, he'll be there, doing the same old things he's been doing. And it's not just with me, its with everyone. The only difference with me is...I don't put up with it. You can be passive, and turn the other cheek, and all that...that's fine...but I don't do that, if someone challenges me all the time...I stand up to it. So there...that's the explanation. And so far, we're still awaiting One, for the show to begin lol
Well you know, it's clear you haven't been following most of the discourses....most of the time, his perspective is just plain wrong, period. I mean it really is. And most of the discourses center around me, showing him why it's wrong...and him getting huffy about it, and continuing to hammer away the false perspective. And it is false, from a truth standpoint, it is false. That's just how it is, and it doesn't really matter to me if people see that or not, I know that's how it is.
And note...I never instigate. This is the first time I've ever really done anything with One, resembling an instigation. It's true, I rarely ever instigate a fight. I just post my opinion on things, and people come at me. And the past months, whenever I've posted an opinion, One comes at me, wanting to fight. Should I just turn the other cheek, and ignore it....well maybe I should...and maybe I'll do that more often from now on. Because I don't really like doing this either....but it does get annoying after a while...especially when his critiques just aren't true, they're not based in reality. But you know what...okay...I'll take your advice...and try to step back...and love him...and just ignore whatever he says to me. I don't know how long it'll last, but I'll give it a shot lol
Well look...with respect...you're talking rhetoric. Some people can be wrong. Like when he says Obama's plan will tank Canada's economy...and he posts an article supposedly proving it...then when you read the article, it says the exact opposite....that makes his belief wrong, period. When he says I want to be like Hitler, or support what Hitler did...because there's some qualities of his personality I admire....he's just plain wrong, point finale. He can believe that...and his belief will be right in his mind....but they're not right, in objective reality.
I mean there is an objective reality, let's not fool ourselves here. Someone can believe the moon is made of cheese and baloney....but if they go to the moon, it won't be made of cheese and baloney lol They can believe that all they want...but it's just not true. And if he comes at me...professing all these wrong beliefs...that I know are wrong...I can tell him why he's wrong...and hopefully he'll see he's wrong, and change his belief to one that's more aligned with the truth.
But you know, I'll take your advice and just ignore him. Hopefully he'll stop coming at me and attacking me all the time. And it's not about me defending myself, this is about what's real and what isn't. Alot of times he says things that just aren't real...but okay...I'll take your advice...and rise above it...and try to just love him without saying anything.
Yes...thank you...I'm glad someone else sees what's clearly obvious. That's just how he is...and he's like that with everyone. I'm just one of his main targets. I don't even know why really, I don't even talk to him. He always comments at me. I don't know what his problem is with me, or with people...but I suggest he gets over it.
No, I explained already, 3 times now...what this post was about. This was about One, getting into it with me on other peoples threads, dampering their threads....and me wanting that not to happen, so I said, we can have our own thread, and talk here, you can say all the things you said to me on the other thread...here...and we'll talk here, so not to ruin other peoples thread. What part of that is unclear to you.
I believe we have all had arguments with "One" over the months and often we have had heated debates, to boot...He is the type who causes this and we respond to it...
Now, I completely understand your frustrations with "One," John and have followed much of your disagreement over Obama with him on the other thread...I do now try to be fair with him, even though he trolls the site and we all know it...Well, should know it, by now...
I try not to get angry with him any more, as I believe he cannot help it....It's the way he's wired...Yes, it can be annoying...and in some ways more annoying for you than "Gold Coin Collector" is.
But, all we can do is self-moderate our own blogs....Mr.Ed tried this recently, as per my advice and was pleased with the results...Moderation works and we each have the tools and cannot always blame Ben....Some say Ben should control the trolling...BUT I say WE are responsible...and we must all agree to moderate well...
But inviting "One" here will not work....It's like setting a bear trap for a fox....He won't enter it...
He will only enter a blog that discusses a topic he would seek to derail..it's what he does...
Well you know...I think people should be free to post whatever they want. I'll let them post whatever they want on my blogs. But, if other people want to moderate their blogs, to keep it straight...well that's alright, I understand, people don't want their blogs dampered, and I don't really like dampering them.
And, yesterday on Andy's blog, when he just came at me, totally unprovoked...that was enough. I really didn't want to have that happen...I didn't want a good blog...suddenly being dampered by me and One. So that's why I said, we can talk here...on our own blog...so not to ruin other peoples blogs.
It's not setting a trap for him, or baiting..it's just saying, take your posts from Andys blog, and bring them here, so we won't ruin his blog. That's all it was. And that's the 6th time I've explained it now lol
I agree, most people can see One's MO here on the site. And maybe ignoring him is the best option.
lol xDDD well that's a little carried away but I get what you're doing lol Thanks for the humor, Tom.
Among many things, One is also a pathological lier. He is not in his seventies... & it may surprise many here to discover that he's actually in his thirties. & to those suggesting One is staying away from John's request for debate because he's somehow intellectually above this ... get real. He can't type because his hands are occupied... This is how he gets off ;-)
