Very helpful, insightful, and way more cogent than anything posted by the troll that wasn't a ripoff of someone else's work.

Re: Motivation Is Everything

I have no problem with ***** posting here. Now if he started chasing after every post that even mentioned "SWR" or "withdrawal" and posted a two page thesis within each of those posts, and on and on, I would get tired of it quickly and I would change my mind. But if he disagrees with someones approach in a SWR-related topic, he could just insert a word or two with an up to date link to elsewhere where more info would be available.

If ***** starts a new topic, like he did here, then at least to me this is his topic. And if I didn't want to hear it, I would just move on to another post.
I admit I get caught up in people's posts sometimes, when I should just skip it and move on. We all probably do.

At another retirement board, there seemed to be more *****-baiting than *****, or any other topic for that matter! Now THAT will drive people away. Myself included.

An observation... I have never seen ***** show incivility. No matter what. Truly amazing. Either he is really the output of an artificial intelligence program, or the man's on the way to becoming a saint!

Re: Motivation Is Everything

I used to have no problem with ***** (and his alter ego, who also appears to have shown up) posting here and everywhere else. In fact, several times I said if he was thrown out I'd leave too.

That was good until I attempted to engage in actual analysis of his "work" and his "concerns" with current SWR thinking.

His approach doesnt work, and in fact his "tool" has already failed several times in just the past ten years. Had I followed his line of thinking, I would never have been able to ER.

When I challenged his endless pontifications with questions about this and how he would like to address it, I was systematically picked apart by he and his alter ego...the death of a thousand small cuts. When I reacted badly to one of them, a retreat to innocence ensued.

This is all about a guy who wants attention and is very deeply angry at another community member. No more, no less.

When he was given free reign at another site, he drove 90+% of the participating members away within a couple of weeks. He's now gotten bored of posting to himself amongst the tumbleweeds over there, and is sneaking back here for more attention.

DO NOT feed the troll.

Re: Motivation Is Everything

Fortunately this cancer, if ignored, will go into remission all by itself.

Tending to it, trying to cut it out, or making any further analysis of it will simply cause it to expand and persist.

How 'bout those Red Sox? Or those Patriots!!!?

I have a long ways to go on the becoming-a-saint thing, Telly. But I much appreciate you coming forward with those kind words.

Telly, you've now been added to the quote file that is maintained by h&cus/JWR/etc. and your name will be dragged out at all opportunities to poke at naysayers for the next 30 years that it will take to generate the data on the future. *Have fun with that form of immortality.

Here's what Dory36 had to say on an earlier occasion in which these tactics were employed by the DCMs:

Jeez Louise, folks! *I go away for just a short while and you all get crazy on me!

Personally, I think that when a thread becomes a meta discussion, discussing more about the participants and discussion itself than the topic of the thread, it's time to just drop the subject.
*
It is also pretty unfair to those NOT in the discussion to make them wade through many pages of stuff to find material related to the topic title.
