45. read the dictionary definition of internet troll

bongbong's posts are funny and witty only on a very simple mind.

Web definitions

In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, , or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into a desired emotional response

That describes Hoyt and bongbong. You define troll as anyone who does not meet my litmus test. Judging from his posts in other I have seen in other groups, that is the best either of them can do.

What happened to Hoyt was a simple abuse of power. I'll repeat again that not a single person who is not a pro-gunner has agreed that his banning was legit, and several people in the Meta thread that have nothing to do with the gungeon expressed dismay. The pro-gunners like to pretend that there's no racism or bloodlust in the gun culture, that it's just friendly hobbyists enjoying a family activity and taking measured self-defense precautions. Hoyt would remind us all that this is simply not the truth. That's why he got banned.
that is a crock of shit. I disagreed with his banning and said so.

There are racists in any subculture, but the gun culture is not racist. The anti gunners are mostly classist in my experience. Speaking of racism, why did Hoyt always accuse someone getting the shit beaten out of him at a gas station of being a racist? That carries as much weight as Hoyt's rants. He falsely accused people of racism with no evidence. He used a negative stereotype to broad-brush smear a large group of people. What does that describe to you? You accuse the gun culture of being full of anti intellectual creationists and climate change deniers. Gross over generalization? You indirectly accused us of being racists and right wingers, and you have the balls to whine about being called a bigot in Meta? Give me a fucking break.

Bigotry is the state of mind or attitude of a bigot, defined by Merriam-Webster as "a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially: one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance". Bigotry may be based on real or perceived characteristics, including age, disability, dissension from popular opinions, economic status, ethnicity, gender identity, language, nationality, personal habits, personal feelings, political alignment, race, region, culture, religious or spiritual belief, sex, species, or sexual orientation. Bigotry is sometimes developed into an ideology or world view.
