You see, he’s off again... passive aggressive to the max, funny though just as I have to go, I’m so grateful it’s like that and I’m not the one sat there alone at breakfast in my dressing gown with my hand down my underpants glaring at the screen and happy he can wield his copy/paste vitriol again. I don’t want to sound facetious but I’m so happy I’m me.
Hausamsee your comedy value is through the roof... calling me passive aggressive while putting in an incredibly passive aggressive statement about me in a dressing gown staring at a screen is a bit, erm, rich. Also I never copy and paste.

And seriously, if you don't think I would say any of this stuff to you in real life then you are very much mistaken... I am actually this kind of person in real life, intolerant and very abrasive to people who throw abuse and then play the victim card soon after. That you can always even pretend you have always acted beyond reproach, when the reality is that you have always been engaging in serious mud slinging, never ceases to amaze me. But you aren't the only one, gaburko is the same along with many others and as such you will always have my absolute disdain whether on this forum or elsewhere.

I mean seriously, what are you going to do if you ever meet me in person... lose your rag and try and 'beat me up'? Don't make me laugh, because I don't worry about stuff like that.

Of course they are selective. They are as selective as the opposite stuff people are posting/discussion/believing in.

There seems to be a very small but very vocal majority of people on EF that fall on the opposite end of what TC and myself think and post about Covid.
That very small group seems to include most of the world's governments, medics and scientists.

The sort of people who think the same way as you and TC also happen to be the same group of people that include anti-vaxxers, flat-earthers and conspiracy theorists and Christian Evangelical fundamentalists.

Being Bisexual is a personal attack? Maybe it is if you are homophobic?

I would consider it a compliment, best of both worlds and a larger pool to choose from.
Oh good grief. You either know quite well what my point was and are simply getting off on the argument or you really should be having an adult oversee your internet time. Either way, enjoy the rest of your day.

to be honest, they are quite selective and used to repeatedly bang the same drum.

There are two sides to the argument and if someone does not buy into yours, do you need to keep on hammering?

It also goes to both sides that there is a way to get your message across that is more positive. It's ok to disagree, it is how you do it that defines you as a person
I find that TC really tries to back his statements with sources, when I read them I found that some of them actually disprove his statements. This isn't trolling, thats just having a different opinion. Wheter its well educated, right, wrong, offending or not shouldn't matter.
As long as someone is willing to engage in the same circular argument over and over just have at it.

I do that too. And I agree is bloody addictive. These silly arguments generate traffic and banning ahem, controversial users, is counter-productive....otherwise the silence from EB et co. is unjustifiable.
I think that the whole purpose of the this forum, from the perspective of the owners, is to generate revenue. No more, no less. That's business, anywhere. Generating traffic generates income. That's all it's about.

Therefore, the owners can safely disregard the human quality of the posts, as long as people do keep posting. Anything at all that keeps people posting, (in whatever direction or with whatever intent) is productive. If some users post less, or leave, it matters not one jot, as long as sufficient numbers of other users keep posting, and new ones join, and together they generate enough traffic for the business to be worthwhile.

For those of us who post with good intent, that's rather sobering, and sad, in a way.

He was on yesterday too. Something to indicate it's being looked into would only be respectful to his former mods and members.

You asked someone if they are homophobic based on taking a post totally out of context. Thatís neither funny nor banter. Itís baiting and bullying.

So you are stealing material for your book? Will we get a cut too from your next bestseller?
lol. No, but ironically, the book does have to do with the relationship between technology, psychology and neuroscience (the research has already been done, though, over the past 3 years or so).
