We clearly have a different view of the situation.

Muffles troll, she admits it.
I don't see disagreements as trolling, that is a misrepresentation/lie from your side. A troll is someone who does not contribute to a discussion in any positive or constructive manner and is purely there to disrupt it. To this, muffles admits.
I wouldn't be surprised if your "prior understanding of what I am" is also a misunderstanding.

More like "feeling the boredom".
You’re bored here?  Interesting.  So the fact that you keep coming back can be taken to mean that your life outside this forum is even more boring then, yes?

I do?  Where?  Or is this yet another instance where you seriously overreach the available evidence?

Not bored of the forum, bored by some elements who desperately want to get a rise out of others by trolling.

Here's one definition of a Telly,... er, I mean a troll....

From the Urban Dictionary.
Quote
One who purposely and deliberately (that purpose usually being self-amusement) starts an argument in a manner which attacks others on a forum without in any way listening to the arguments proposed by his or her peers. He will spark of such an argument via the use of ad hominem attacks (i.e. 'you're nothing but a fanboy' is a popular phrase) with no substance or relevence to back them up as well as straw man arguments, which he uses to simply avoid addressing the essence of the issue.


Quote from: Mefiante

...and then proceeds to bore everyone else on the forum...

There's  a couple of questions I'd like to ask you Telly; (I'm just being curious.)

Do you converse the way you write your posts? The reason I ask is because you never seem to contribute to any casual conversations or just chat informally with anyone here.Do you feel that it's "below" you to interact casually with others here?
Do you have any friends? I ask this because judging by the way you do interact with us (like a pompous know it all - this is just my view), it seems that you might not have any, and you try to compensate by trying to impress others with what you think are highly intelligent posts.

Looked in a mirror lately?



You admit to trolling. You did not delete the post did you?
Once again:  Where?  What part of that one-word question is giving you trouble?  And by what contorted logic is my “not delet[ing] the post” (which one?) an admission of anything?

Muffels to Tele:
"But where on earth did you dredge up the strange notion that I’m "[trying] to engage in a conversation" with you?"

What..., not even trying to have a conversation with me? From there on I accepted that all you are doing when replying to me is troll until you are willing to have a conversation... or at least try.

It is born up by experience. I haven't seen mefiante troll at all.

Hmm, it certainly lo-o-o-o-ks like you’ve got me there.  Could there be another possibility besides trolling, ya think?

problem is, and this is from many months of observation, is that, tele, you never really answer the questions put to you.
i dont engage with you, because i see the folly that others battle against.
you answer questions with questions.
there is never a concrete, this is it, final, decisive answer.
it's a pain in the ass.
you refer a person from one site to the next.  quoting randomly.  but no answer is reached.
no answer that you can say, 'i have experienced this for sure'.

there is an afrikaans saying 'soos 'n passer om sy eie gat.'
i actually dont generally bother to read your posts, because i know that i wont glean anything from it, there are no rock solid facts, just floaty theorems.  and untill it reaches flame wars, there is nothing in there.
you insist on using this high-flying acedemic language, for what puspose i have no idea.  while there is no word that google cant find, you are simply postioning yourelf as a superior intellect.
use plain english.  it works.  really.
while you might be so involved with your intellect, i live on mother earth, and would appreceate you not talking down to me.
i dont have the time to sit and decifer what you are actually saying.  i dont have the leisure of having spent years in study to sound smarter than joe soap.  if you want honest, interactive feedback from the people on the forum, then make it accessable to jodels like, who dont spend their time in books. 
and write your own experience, with things that are concrete.  that we can at least relate to.
its all good and well to speculate the bizarro and out there, but that is all you do?
i still dont know if you are for real, or just having a grand time taking the piss.

Ditto, but we tried that so many times in the past, remember?  Never once did it work, remember?  Go on, I dare you to surprise everyone and show us just how wrong inductive reasoning can be.

Be honest, have you ever tried to have a decent conversation with me, devoid of any veiled ad hominems? Perhaps we can pick it up from there...?
