Truly pathetic response to one of my articles
I posted one of my DU articles over at gather.com

here's a link to the original post here

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Some self-described "Conservative" posted this as a response.

"My only response, besides giving this a 1 is....

MUUUHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! What absolute nonsense!

Thanks for the laugh!

--C"

My response?

If that's your only response, C, you need to go to school to hone your debating skills. Oh, wait. Education might turn you into a liberal.

So he says

OOOOH!

Your statement was written to incite debate! I SEE! Well, Umm, Switch?

***Oh, wait. Education might turn you into a liberal.***

MUUUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Or perhaps a conservative who runs around laughing at liberal hyperbole!

Damn this good stuff, can't wait to read what else you have to say!

--C



So, what do YOU think's with this guy? Professional ninny? Or just your average wanker?

1. Just your average ninny wanker.
I wouldn't even bother responding anymore. His nonsense will continue until you end up looking as silly as he does.

If you feel like you need to respond, I'd keep it short and simple.

"It's impossible to respond to name calling and silliness. Debate requires discussion on the points with meaning and unbiased citation to back up your beliefs."



Don't give them something to latch onto that will devolve into a name calling, mud slinging stupid fest.

12. I feel the same. It is some thing that you just can not brake into
These people shut their minds and it is like talking to a rock. Fact is the people who head the GOP seem to be the same. They are right and you are wrong. Ever thing to reason with is gone. I guess it is the old thing of power is evil.

4. Average wanker
A professional ninny would come up with counterpoints to your statements. Average wankers just blow the entire thing off in one-two content-free sentences as this twit did.

6. Yeah, that's what I was thinking...
I thought I hit on some good points. And got some zingers in there too.

I thought this guy's responses were particularly lame, actually.

8. typical Republican attack........
....they laugh at you, (which was meant to insult you) without offering any factual information to counter your argument!!

Now we know why he's known as 'C'.........that's probably the only grade he got in school!!

Oops! I insulted him myself!!

9. Heh...
Actually he posts using his full name, allegedly, but I thought it was in poor taste to pass it along here.

11. .
Yes, another one of those who believe they have it all figured out but who have neiter the knowledge nor the abilitiy to engage in a real discussion about the topic.
I'd say that he is just stupid and he sadly doesn't know it. Surprise.

13. Sometimes you get lucky and find a conservative who'll debate.
For those who just spam up the thread, a simple "pfff" post will do.
