I call Bullshit. The first bit of this thread was nothing more than Roger being a Cosmic Schmuck and ranting about something of which he apparently has little or no knowledge or experience. It turned into a discussion that was at least interesting and still on topic. Daruko made useful posts (even though I might disagree with his leanings there) and in return, Roger comes back with, let us all admit, a slight piece of laem.

As far as I can tell, in this thread, Daruko only mistake was thinking that we are allowed to comment on LAEM whenever it happens, even if Roger happens to be the recipient and suddenly he's asking for it and ruining Roger's thread...

Emperor Norton on a Shit Stick! I was having a good time in this thread and Roger made it RUINT!

BY GODDESS! I WILL KILL A MOTHERFUCKER!


Heh, paging through my book of grudges...

Its not as pervasive as you think, its just when you see it, you cant look away and it clouds the other shit.
This forum (to me) is still about sweet beautiful soul crushingly brutal honesty, and cutting through the crap.

This is mostly about something that's happening at POEE, but it seems to be creeping into PD as well.

Fucking primitives, beating on hollow logs and hiding in caves because, well, it's easier than learning math, right?  Never mind that this is EXACTLY what the CoN wants you to do.  When you're out "casting sigils", you aren't accomplishing ANYTHING, but you THINK you are, and that makes the powers that be HAPPIER THAN SHIT.  And, goddammit, it is so stupid that it is fucking PAINFUL to even WATCH.

Jackasses.  I hope they all get terminal fucking syphilis.

Whoa.  How did I lose that kind of rage?

Because you had hopes of trying to change the world, and were ragey at the people who you saw as actively trying to defeat you?
If someone does the ďFine, youíre right, Iím clearly a terrible person, Iím Satan, Iím the worst person alive, I should just dieĒ thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

Probably.  I'm more hate-oriented, now.  The rage comes and goes.

Probably better for my blood pressure.
