Another ironic moment where the person who really needs to get over himself, instructs others to get over themselves.

It's a classic db move to make an inaccurate claim or statement, then turn around with a contradictory claim by tweaking his argumentative bullet points, usually followed by insults and/or a reposting of a picture and/or preceded with large bolded words, also reposted.

Argumentum ad nauseam in action!
Well, that's this thread summarized.

The thread is summarised in the title and so far it fails badly as a how to on insulting people.

Ignoring someone is the best insult.

It would be pretty sad if someone actually needed instructions on how to insult people.

@Duchamp Indeed, I've certainly never had any difficulty. The real point of this thread I guess is a particularly sad person who needs guidance in that department as he doesn't seem to have learnt anything about insults beyond primary school.

Actually, one of my theories is he often doesn't realize that he has been insulting people and then has to justify it afterwards.

BTW, you can insult people's intelligence, too. For example, by considering a lengthy exchange of insults on whether U2 are a pop group or not is somehow a "debate" that you have "won".

I'm not insulted.

And btw, it's NOT a fact that U2 suck, it's just your opinion.

You got it DB, it's just an opinion about U2 and nothing more. If Barry Manilow rocked your world aren't you entitled to dig him too? It's all personnel taste and nothing is wrong with that. 8)

One thing, it's sort of silly having a U2 controversy/argument on a Zappa.com site when you think of it. :mrgreen:

It's not a theory, it is fact.

He's depressing to be around. If I could trade him in for Pope Jim I would.

Fact: Guitar by Frank Zappa is one of the most boring pieces of shit ever released by a major artist.

Hey, this is fun!

Fact: Captain Beefheart is easily the most overrated artist of the 20th century.

Opinions become facts because I declare they are facts!

:D

Oh no, seriously. "Reading" fecal matter is important in archaeological research, paleontological research, biological research etc. And I bet it's a lot more educational and interesting than this topic.

What the fuck? The first time I put in the pumpkin to show I'm joking and it's still misinterpreted. I couldn't care less one way or the other.

No problem. I'm tired of the negativity, so I'm going to become a forum wuss and spread love and hope and optimism.

I wanted to use a pumpkin for irony, but couldn't find one...

I guess you would still have believed I was serious.

anyway, it's a fact that my opinion is that u2 sucks. now, that's funny. :mrgreen:
