The usual pissing contests between the experts and the wannabe experts, a whole bunch of newbies with their solid gold, diamond encrusted opinions, a few more trolls - some of whom are no longer with us - long threads that people find no sense in reading through before they opine a point that was debated and settled three pages earlier, and as Dragoon44 states, a whole bunch of stupid for which there is no cure...Hack;13380336 said:So, what was it?

Myself I have been quite amused at all the ones that can't figure out oldskoolfans point.
I guess I fall into both slots. :dunno:RussP;13383416 said:..., and as Dragoon44 states, a whole bunch of stupid for which there is no cure...
Oh, there isn't just the one.Sam Spade;13392609 said:We need a rule: If you're gonna reference tomfoolery, you should at least put a guide to it's location.
Finally found that thread. meh.
Scew it - I closed it.Dragoon44;13389463 said:Russ posted what the thread was all about by quoting the posts where I spilled the beans.
Notice they STILL don't get it.
One thing I have learned is that most people today cannot grasp and argument or point based on ethics. might as well be speaking greek to them.
He doesn't know how to, or just doesn't want to.Dragoon44;13397388 said:Might as well have closed it, Oldskoolfan did not seem to want to bring it to a conclusion. And it was long over due for him to do so.
He PM'd me after my first post, telling me I was the only one who seemed to get his point. don't know why he did not go ahead and finish it. I suspect he may want to use some of the replies as ammo next time he gets into it about open carry with one of the rabid OC'ers/RussP;13400519 said:He doesn't know how to, or just doesn't want to.
When you pointed out his purpose, or what you, and I, believed it to be, he should have cut it off then...unless he really didn't have a purpose and all he wanted to do was stir up trouble...well I'll be a son-of-a-*****, I just looked and he never acknowledged your post!! Even he didn't get it.:faint:
Probably true, his main goal I agree, is just to take a contrary position. Probably makes him feel "smart".Sam Spade;13401121 said:meh. He'll just as likely use the other points against the pro-training crowd, as he was doing in the "Intruder Game" thread.
He's a college kid working in a bar, delighting in pointing out what he sees as inconsistencies and not realizing that complex systems are just that: complex.
