Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Nov 9, 2012, 06:53 PM

I tried. I really, really tried.

Our new friend, Mr. Batty, has driven me to the point of trashing his thread and putting him on ignore.

WTF is wrong with that guy?

1. But there's a ton o' comedy gold right there, CH.

For a little while I wasn't sure if Mr. Baty was real or a pastiche created by somebody at The Onion. Stephen Colbert himself should be taking notes on how to maintain an air of superiority while doing mental gymnastics. I, for one, hope that thread in Religion goes to a thousand posts. I've got a 12-pack of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and nothing else to do tonight!

2. I just alerted on his last post, he is using comments from this group, which he is banned from...

and posting them in Religion in an attempt to goad the poster onto arguing with him. Thats a no-no. I hope they ban his ass.

5. You're absolutely right in doing so, of course,

but I'm kind of enjoying the schadenfreude right now. The poor bastard's being used as a chew toy and it doesn't even register.

6. He and his ridiculous nonsense is all over the web!

Been doing this shtick for a couple of years it looks like.

He is a troll, nothing more.

10. I'm sure he's nothing more than a troll,

but he's riding close enough to Poe's Law to make him entertaining to me, at least.

3. I'd rather gnaw off a limb

than even try to have a rational exchange with that entity.

I nearly slipped into a coma reading some of that crap.

7. He cut-and-pasted comments from this Group in Religion, and thats a no-no, right?

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1218&pid=54065

Pretty sure someone got banned for doing that.

19. Yes he did.

And he's not welcome here anymore.

I daresay he is so obnoxious even the Religion group may prefer he stay away.

Time will tell.

11. I'm with you. Why try? Do something more useful, like emptying the subway with a mop

or counting snowflakes.

He's a troll pushing a vanity blog which I will not visit.

It is like having a philosophical discussion with a 5 year old.

12. And like a 5 year old

he thrives on attention. If a few of his OPs went totally unresponded to, he'd probably be off seeking a better audience for his narcissism.

13. I've had more intelligent and rational conversations with my 3 year old daughter.

He is just, well, to be blunt, stupid.

14. But you certainly tried.

I considered getting involved, but all I could come up with is "you are an idiot", and that doesn't serve much purpose. Everyone is already seeing that.

15. And you can't fix stupid

But you sure as hell can laugh it when it manifests itself like it does in this guy. It's so rare that a true moron shows up to teach us evil atheists so enjoy it while you can.

And share with the hubby for a good laugh! Sadly, I returned to DU a few days too late to jump in the fray...

17. Dunning-Kruger, Dunning-Kruger, Dunning-Kruger

That plus the written equivalent of the Gish Gallop debating technique has him teetering on the edge of my own ignoratorium. I have backed off for a few days if only to see if he's capable of either an OP that isn't cut and paste or a discussion in which he gives up on trying to lecture the rest of us from on high.

"Hide thread" and "Ignore" will solve the problem very quickly. I imagine both are imminent.

responding to that drivel. I'm tempted to send a DU mail to everyone who keeps doing it saying "DON'T FEED THE TROLL!!"

21. Yep, he's on full ignore for me, too.

Only one. Thinking about putting a couple others in that forum on there too now that I have the ball rolling.

but that guy has pissed me off every day I've gotten on!

I had to block him.

24. He reminds me of somebody...

...(his) modus operandi tends to involve persistently posting threatening, incoherent and weirdly formatted anti-atheist rants to any blog that strikes his fancy...

(I haven't been around for a while, but only because RL keeps getting in the way. So hi everybody!)
