Dory, i'd like to bring up...

the possibility of banning a certain highly disruptive poster again. Does anyone really have objections, aside from the (&%(&$! in question?

You all know to whom I am referring. I will not type its name or respond to it.

Re: Dory, i'd like to bring up...

As before, I agree. I dont know how effective its been to ban it before, but enoughs enough.

How about a review of
http://early-retirement.org/cgi-bin/...num=1097415470

I think the reception among the greater group was middling, and the thread discussion stopped when the troll promised to ease up and cut the crap. He did so for almost exactly six months and he's at it again.

Promise violated.

Beats the hell out of small animals carrying wooden stakes and singing "Lucy. In the sky. With. Diamonds"

Sounds like a good one for a new Stephen King novel.

Intercst should be banned. Those who have followed the SWR discussions for even a small portion of the past 34 months know wny.

And there we have it. Even the troll agrees that objectionable people should be banned.

Unfortunately for the troll, there are only two people who have a problem with Intercst.

I'm not a troll. But I do indeed believe that, TH. The board was created to serve a purpose, and we should all be permitted to pursue advancement of that purpose. Honest and informed posting should be permitted on what the historical data says re SWRs, just as it is on all other on-topic questions.

I agree with everything you said, except the part about not being a troll. Thats been proven already.

Now if you were actually interested in any reasonable discussion, you wouldnt aggravate and irritate the members of every single discussion group on the topic.

Given that your participation detracts from any reasoned discussion, then your point is well made.

Removing you from participating will improve the resulting aggregate dialog.

Thanks for your agreement that trolls such as yourself should be removed, and that the result is a plus.

Re: Dory, i'd like to bring up...

I'd miss the necessary postings of bunnys with pancakes on their heads and even more the exposure of more folks to kayaks ( a passion of mine, or did I use a bad word?) but that may be an acceptable price to pay to increase the signal to noise ratio.

Re: Dory, i'd like to bring up...

What are your thoughts on the intercst thing, TH?

I don't think we need any more words at this point. Is it thumbs up or thumbs down?

You're Town Sheriff, remember. Your vote counts double.

Re: Dory, i'd like to bring up...

Since I dont know what "The Intercst Thing" is, I'm afraid I cant comment. Nor honestly do I care.

As usual, you try to change the subject of a thread. This thread is about a hijacking troll that simply wont stop no matter how much abuse you heap on it.

Oh yeah...that would be you.

Re: Dory, i'd like to bring up...

You sound hostile, TH. Are you able to say why you are feeling hostile towards me?

Please try to boil it down and be specific enough so that I can make sense out of it and maybe we can bring this thing to some sort of constructive resolution.

Re: Dory, i'd like to bring up...

Hah hah. Ok Eliza.

Because you're a pointless troll that damages this community.

I'm hostile because I try to contribute to it. Your "work" takes away from the contributions that we all try to make.

Nothing you dont already know. Now begone!

(Before someone asks... http://www.psych.utoronto.ca/~reingo...ai/turing.html and http://www-ai.ijs.si/eliza-cgi-bin/eliza_script )

That doesn't give me much to work with.

Contribute away. What's stopping you?

If intercst goes or stays, what difference does it make to your ability to contribute? He has never posted much at this forum in any event. Why do you even care?

I'll talk real to you.

Why bother building a community when there's an arsonist among you.

You know all about arson, dont you? Its easy, its fun, it takes up an empty persons time?
