Re: A Self Admitted Troll
keep up your strawman and character assassination, it is the only way you can defeat me.

Message 228

with regards to the message in question i was merely making an observation on what this site has become.

There a number of people here who cannot engage me without name calling, and i get blamed for "their" lack of ability as posters.

everything i learned about bigotry i learned from this site.

Admin, is this what you want this site to be? He obviously only wants to start flame wars and gets some sort of perverse satisfaction from it.

care to show evidence of your assertion?

BTW: when you get personally attacked on almost every post you make because it is not of the popular opinion like i do, then what would you think this site is, if not a flame site?

my opinion about this site is based on observations

I would like to apologize in advance if this is incorrect, or not to be used in this way.

I am new here, and trying to not rock the boat, I only have 20 or so posts, and I have enjoyed this site for a couple weeks (1st as a lurker).

I have had zero complaints, it seems to be a well moderated site, that has active admins who police the site very effectively. I have not agreed with people here (such as Nonukes), but it was always cordial and fine (sometimes people do disagree with you).

That was until today. I made a post in the coffee house (the really active subforum here) in a thread titled Bears. It appears that my post was something that the OP (Theodoric) did not agree with, and in his response decided that berrating me was appropriate and acceptable. I am sorry I have a different opinion but I think more tact would have been appropriate, rather than the school-yard behavior I encountered.

Here is the response

Theodoric writes:

There is rarely a need to shoot a bear unless you are hunting it. In a bear encounter in which you have incited the bear to attack I highly doubt you are going to get off 5 effective shots.
Also, your choice of ammo shows you are either a poser or just not real smart. Any idea what that hollow point is going to do when it hits that bear? Didn't think so. I don't think 5 .357 hollow points are going to stop a bear of any size. Ever spend much time in the woods?

so based on my opinion I am either "not smart" or a "poser". I understand whais being said when one asks a question and both answers are negative. Then this person continues by asking a strawman question and answering it.

I really would like to know if this kind of posting is generaly accepted here or not? I have not run into it until now, the vast majority of the poeple here are respectful, even to those of other opinions.
