Signal to Noise

Postby E.P. Grondine » Sat Nov 09, 2013 10:45 am

I actually have real work to do in the real world.

I come here to get the news, and to see what you odd bits you have dug up.

I do not need deranged idiots to deal with, as I have enough of them coming at me for confirmation of their "ideas".

And like any other three year old, they get very angry at you when you tell them no.

Was that tantrum necessary? Is this your usual reaction when someone presents an opposing view or disagrees with you?

I wondered about this.
“Where did this come from?”

He is , admittedly, sensitive.
But I thought this message may have been miss-addressed.

They even get angry sometimes when you agree that they're right as far as they go, but won't play along with their conviction that they're the last word on a matter that's more complex and multi-faceted than they seem to comprehend. :?

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. :(

Yes, Michelle, this message is necessary.

We live in age where facist propaganda techniques are being used.

One of them is that a lie repeated often enough somehow becomes true.
Another is that if you combine enough lies together in one statement,
at least one will get through uncontested, and somehow become true.
Three, take a good source of information, and send s**t through it - a little poison in the soup never hurt anyone, now did it.

The fourth is the nastiest, and involves slander. If you don't like the facts,attack the messenger.

Free and open discussion is one thing, but what is happening is another.

I hope that kalopin enters into free and open discussion with Mr. Cox.
Or gets professional help from someone they pay to do it.

I personally have enough work to do without having to waste time with deranged fixated idiots.
