I voted undecided.  The only reasons I didn't vote to let him stay were the "trollin time" thread and the all caps user name.  If he voluntarily changed his display name to lower case, that would go a long way with me.


He was nice enough to change the title of his thread... but he upped the "Troll Ante" considerably with this gem...
It seems that Herbivores eat plants.  Carnivores eat meat.  And omnivores ... seem to eat mostly plants.
...
my current theory is that we should eat both animals and plants but in case of animals we should NOT eat adipose tissue.  we SHOULD eat animal fat but we should get it from organs, not lard.

because you are what you eat.  if you eat lard that's what you become.  if you eat muscles and brains :)

I changed the thread title because I thought the topic was worth discussing.

Warren Dew - other than the above, where are these intelligent questions?

Well, I have better things to do with my time than sift through his game playing.  I am here to learn and help.  What do you think his goal is?

I skimmed his posting history again, and out of about 40 posts, the following contain questions that a newbie might typically ask:

Also, upon skimming his posts again, I have another theory about his display name.  Rather than referring to playing games with other peoples' minds, it may refer to playing games with his own mind through heavy use of recreational drugs.

I'm changing my vote to yes. He's acting like more and more of a tool as time goes on. In the Open Source world, we call these types of people "poisonous" and they will spread their ill to those around them, making people cynical and killing motivation. The sooner they go, the better.

can you explain why cynicism is bad ?

Cynicism if fine. Cynicism is rejecting conventional wisdom and ideas.
But, rudeness is not. Most forums call it flaming, which will get you banned. Also the drug references were not welcome.

all humans are lie addicts.  i am not.


Does this mean you aren't human?  :o (Sorry, I couldn't resist... reminds me of formal logic class)

If I am a human, then I am a lie addict.
I am not a lie addict.
  Therefore, I am not human.

Since when is THE DICTIONARY not a definitive source for the definition of a word?

if you can't understand from context the intended meaning of my words then you certainly have no chance understanding the main point i am driving at anyway, regardless of the way it is worded.

Sigh... it's called humor... particularly for those who took formal logic in college.  ::)

that wasn't humor.  that was your lame attempt to gain some respect by proving that you have actually attended school at some point. 

i have bad news for you - hundreds of millions of people have attended college and 90% of them are complete idiots.  next time you want to impress us with your intelligence you better manage something halfway original to say.

I graduated from kindergarten. Does that give me any points?
