what crypto said isnt a personal attack in my mind..ZaphodBurner wrote:Well, I DID ask...theCryptofishist wrote:I think that you are yet another person who has created a system that makes sure that he gets a ticket and packages it up very nicely in what he does not recognize are rationalizations.
I was trying to be polite in spite of the fact that most of the time I post anything, if you respond at all it's some snarky-ass quip, which you've been doing for years. One time, I posted something and you asked whether I ever posted anything interesting. Because of you, Cryptofishist, I quit participating in the e-playa for months.
This time, I formed my questions respectfully and you respond with a half-ass attempt at psychotherapy and a thinly-veiled personal attack. So if you want, I can do it this way:
The topic of the thread is "Positive Suggestions for Fixing What is Obviously Broken" Of the 95 posts in it so far, I don't see ANY "positive suggestion" or anything from you longer than a snarky one-liner shitting on people's ideas and showing your friends how cool you are. Your contribution to this discussion so far boils down to things like:
"And would slow down the lines..."
"Oh, you are just so special that my heart is breaking..."
Other than demonstrating your alpha status over the lesser e-playa veterans who are obviously less hip than you; other than somebody who's only contribution to this discussion is to hack other people's attempt at "positive suggestions";
Other than somebody who's so interesting you've made 27,000 posts to the e-playa, who the fuck do you think you are? Do you have a positive idea to share or are you just here to hack people? Envision a discussion without you in it.
plenty of other people have been coming up with solutions that would remove all barriers to them personally getting a ticket.. not being able to see that those solutions are in fact selfish ones that arent really consistent with the reality of the situation is a rationalization ..and plenty of people are doing it right now, not just you..
and in my opinion, telling someone they are rationalizing things isnt a personal attack.. veiled or not..
perhaps you recognizing that it might be TRUE is causing you to feel that youve been attacked.. ...but .... there are plenty of other great and awesome biting ways for crypto to have attacked you than to simply say youre rationalizing
...i bet that she is a big enough girl that she would be able to attack you without making thinly veiled attacks, as well!
as for your reply to her.. well.. i guess we can guess she might have hit the nail on the head because you just let off a big stinker of boring attacks, like real ones.. complete with a guilt trip!! a stroll through memory lane.. and even belittling her for being a highly active participant [
surely.. you would be annoyed if we suddenly decided burning since 2005 was a bad thing cuz ya know..particpating a lot is bad...
how could we envision a burning man without YOU there!! but, ..i think youve actually done this one for us.. with many posts talkin about how burning man is gonna miss camps such as yours
