Andre Jute Troll Hunter

Wow, you're a troll doll collector now.

Not at all. I take the view that "a troll" is merely someone expressing a minority opinion two years before it becomes common currency among the same mob who called the prescient fellow a "troll" for disillusioning their smug certainties.

Or alternately, a troll is someone with a histrionic personality disorder, lacking in original thought and recycling ultra-conservative or opposition talking points to gain attention, usually with a flourish here and there just to point out his superior intellect. I think the APA is working on diagnosis of "troll disorder" or "infantile trollism" for DSM-6.

-- Jay Beattie.


From the Urban Dictionary:

"Top definition
Internet Troll
A person whose sole purpose in life is to seek out people to argue with on the internet over extremely trivial issues. Such arguments can happen on blogs, Facebook, Myspace and a host of others.
The best thing you can do to fight an internet troll is to not answer..or report them."

That describes Jute very well.

Cheers


In fact this does not describe Jute whatsoever. It is a perfect description of Slocumb who is telling us about this country while living in another.


:-) But Jute is allowed to tell us about this country while living in
Ireland? Hell, as far as we know, Jute's never even been an American
citizen.

Tom, you're a hoot!

Common sense

The actions of the Democrats have been vaguely familiar from my grade or jr. high. I remember a teacher going on about a group that were extremely anti-American and pro-world power. These people founded the UN and the EU later.

They were called Technocrats and he thought of them as a threat to America. Since he had served in WW II we all listened with respect and the idea of him being a loon never occurred to us.

But every time I've been hearing the Democrats that has come back to me. The Technocrats belief was that the average man was not smart enough to take care of himself or this world. Sound familiar? Hearing that we were deplorables and lately 10 tooth yokels really rang that bell. So I went looking and here's what I discovered - it is the better part of an hour but I couldn't find it on YouTube which is also highly Technocrat.

Why not take all this political crap to a POLITICAL Newsgroup or Forum?

Cheers

Are you suggesting, Ridealot, that cyclists are one-dimensional? If you are, some where will surely take offence.

By the way, your characterisation of this thread as "crap" is by definition trolling, once more supporting my belief that you're the biggest troll on RBT after the wretched Krygowski and Slow Johnny.


Could you possibly dispense with the dopey nicknames like "Slow Johnny" and "wretched Krygowski" -- or whatever epithet you have at any particular moment for Frank. Really, you're an adult. Fifth grade behavior should be reserved for fifth graders and presidents -- and not adults.

-- Jay Beattie.


Not just yet. I was hoping to be called 'deplorable' again.

Tip; don't hold your breath. Your "currency" hasn't entered this group

Excuse me? You are referring to YOURSELF as mature? You aren't even
close to being an adult!


Lol, thank you for so clearly illustrating my point.

Being kinder, I consider your posting as being the result of someone who
has suffered multiple concussions and is struggling to recover through
the clouding of many bad drug prescriptions from the medical profession.
Take care.

Opinion differs.

It is a perfect

But you blindly brown nose Jute, who also lives outside your country.
Never mind that this is a usenet group of international approach and not
just US centric.

Beatie who lives in one of the most leftist enclaves in the
universe


If leftist enclaves give you great bicycling facilities(comparted to
here), bring it on..

other than California


Woosh wel I guess s that argument killed quick smart.

and makes comments only in opposition to Jute


Naah, you just don't grok them.


and I such as his recent ridiculous claim that you become a member
of the AAAS only to get a T-shirt.


Hey cool t-shirts as a gimmick work well. Riders on the big bicycle rides
we ran could line up and screen print their own on the ride, no limit. It
was also a popular line of purchase from the bike group "store".

and Krygowski who opposes Jute and I on nothing other than general
principles no matter how wrong he is.


When has he been wrong?

In person the comments from any of these would gain them a broken
nose and that is what they are here for -


I thought you were the guy looking for a broken nose with all your falls?

to say things they wouldn't dare say face-to-face.


You really do have anger management issue. Change your meds.

I don't find it in any manner surprising that you who are on this group for no other reason than to argue with someone and take Jute or I as a target for the simple reason that we are usually right. Andrew is right all of the time as well but you are fain to argue with him since he is THE authority on bicycles.
