I doubt it, you're an abuser and they never learn. You beat your family with that tone of voice?

If you can identify where I blamed black people, you go right ahead.
Ummm... you posted an image that says the words 'he was murdered by a group of black Americans."

Did you once again not read what you posted?

I didn't say it, did I? Liar. Admit it, the way you act towards complete strangers that merely disagree with you online, name-calling and insulting, I'll bet you lose that temper with the fam don't you?

Yes, I admit it, I didn't hear you say it. We're not having a conversation. I accused you of posting something. Which you did. Which says black people did a bad thing. Three years ago. This is all true.

And I don't call you a liar because I disagree with you. I call you a liar because you lie constantly about all manner of things.

There are more than a few people on this board I disagree with as much or more than I disagree with you. I don't call them liars because they are not demonstrated liars. You are.

I do get impulsive with theories, but I don't intentionally lie. However, you do intentionally like to shower others with abuse and resort to name-calling, that's demonstrably correct. You're a serial abuser, a bully, and that kind of thing doesn't just exist online, people like you are very frequently the same offline too. I was curious to see how long it would take you to snap and it wasn't long at all. You were ready to go. No real prodding necessary.

Are you back to pretending you have a psychology degree now?

Official and humble apologies to Dakar- totally derailing your thread.

I'm done now. I have nothing to add to the actual topic because I don't have any insight. I'd be curious to know what happened because you're correct, it's odd.

You're lying again? That's a problem when you're calling other people liars, you know? You've attacked Badkosh, and Chongo, and even subego, pretty much any and all conservatives here (admittedly there aren't many around anymore). This rage is so easy to tap, it pops right out when you encounter someone you disagree with, you can't control yourself. How often has it turned loose on people around you?

Think it over. You have serious issues with that temper, it bad for you and others. Deal with it better, please.

There was a method to my madness, I was dealing with something that's been bugging me for a while. And I'm 2 bottles of pinot into the wind and figured it was as good a time as any.

Is this your way of saying that you were wrong about something?

No, sorry. The discussion I wanted spread over a couple threads and you got caught in the crossfire.

I'm sorry that you don't feel secure enough to expose a vulnerability to us such as being wrong.

I was busy exposing someone else's vulnerability, namely being abusive and a bully, and I had to be pretty vulnerable to draw it out (because he gets a perverse pleasure out of kicking people when they're down (or wrong), but it didn't take too long, because he's generally a rather nasty person). I was pretty sloshed at the time, too, so there's also that. If you don't get it, that's fine. He seems to have gotten it.

Edit: But yes, I was wrong, really wrong, but it was for a good cause (at least for me).

I don't mean to pick a side and seem like I'm ganging up on you, so I won't respond directly to whether I think you were being bullied, but I will say that you have a number of pretty annoying MacNN habits. I empathize with Paco in terms of how frustrating they are. If you were to address these not only would you be treated better, but conversation would be far more productive.

Edit: But yes, I was wrong, really wrong, but it was for a good cause (at least for me).
This is a breakthrough moment for you! I'm proud of you... I know this sounds pretty condescending, but honestly, I know that being wrong on the internet is really hard for some people and I don't remember you ever admitting to being wrong in all of these years, so this is good. I can't tell if you are being completely sincere here or just sticking to this idea of this just being a cryptic game, but this is still something...

As if you haven't before? It's been a over a decade since I've cared what you think.

So now you've set yourself up both ways? Whenever you get called out you can pull the wine/joking card?

Will you continue to be surprised/offended when people call you out on stuff then? And would it be fair to say we can treat anything you say as crap? from now on?

Perhaps you could add a little poo emoji to any post you make that's full of it?

Nope, don't care either. You still trying to taunt? Get over it and grow up.

I think you do care.

I'm not trying to taunt you, I don't know anything about Axanar story. I was just trolling you with a misinformed argument (I know Axanar was working on a Star Trek movie, not a Star Wars one), then copping out by claiming to be drunk and joking, as you did.

Based on your strong reaction you can see that this kind of thing kind of blows. Teachable moment? You're welcome.

Let's hug.

It can be both those things, but also serious enough to warrant a) it's own thread, and/or b) move to P/L. Let me know I can do either.

That mix they sell? It's gross AF. The premixed stuff is better but still not a real food substitute.
