The Eight-Fold Path of TV-Humiliation

Recommended Posts

Has the OP ever been wrong and admitted it..........noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. rolleyes.gif

I am probably one of the few posters who doesn't have any problems with admitting to be wrong, I even do it in this thread. It is also a case of being academically aware of what constitutes an argument, something which hampers users every now and again. I can pretty much tell by the way someone builds an argument in the first couple of lines if the post will provide some actual fact or just plain gibberish including a couple of insults and claims that the opposing poster suffers from various less favourable mental disorders (phase 5, i think).

The biggest difference between well behaved posters and posters who continuously needs to resort to invective and other humiliating actions as described in phases 1-8, is that they don't seem to get involved in discussions without being able to provide some proof to support their view OR to get involved only for the sake of it without being able to realise they are in above their head.

I honestly think ThaiVisa would do well to get rid of the General Forum altogether. It's mostly aggressive, arrogant and nasty and it's the first sub-forum most site visitors go and it does not provide a warm welcome.

It's a shame, because the other sub-forums are quite the opposite. Friendly, informative, fun and interesting.

This is not aimed at the OP by the way, or any particular regulars here.

I couldn't agree more.

Go and buy a camera and join us in the Photography Forum and the Farming Forum. It's like a summer meadow of peace and tranquility.

It get.s a bit predictable when long winded intros are followed by..... Moderators, Please note this is not an attempt to stir up anything.............!

It was an entirely honest attempt to persuade moderators to keep this live as long as it didn't deteriorate.

I am pleasantly surprised how well this developed. I expected the topic to go berserk after less than a dozen posts. I was wrong.

I only get annoyed by people using 'BS' or 'Bullshit' as the all encompassing, all conquering, ultimate reply to what ever he doesn't agree with. I did write a BS post one time ( well maybe more than once) but this insulting put down really stops me answering posts.

Probably a charming American phrase that I don't really understand.

I don't think the person calling bullshit on your post is looking for an answer, so you needn't worry about that. "Bullshit" is the mot juste for so many postings one sees here on TV. It doesn't require to be qualified.

I like the posters who don't have an inkling of what the post is about or where Thailand is located on a map or how to type but have figured out how to use a smiley. coffee1.gif Further the posters who are twice as dumb and palsied who hit the button twice coffee1.gifcoffee1.gif and the poor guy who has stuttering fingers but has still not figured what the post is about coffee1.gifcoffee1.gifcoffee1.gif .

Do you understand the meaning of 'ad hominem'? laugh.png

Yes ad hominem is your post implying I am ignorant and don't know the meaning of the Latin phrase ad hominem. My post is a an on topic description of posters who humiliate themselves by posting symbols that have no relevance to the post but strive to make a comment about the poster.

9. Phase 9. Start a thread out of nowhere, pointing out the faults of all other posters while pretending to be perfectly sanctimonious.

Phase 9 should include the definition of sanctimonious. self-righteous, holier-than-thou, churchy, pious, pietistic, moralizing, unctuous, smug, superior, priggish, mealy-mouthed, hypocritical, insincere, for form's sake.

Did you really mean to say sanctimonious?

Of course I did, Mr. English Police. In context, I'll take unctuous, smug, superior, priggish, mealy-mouthed, hypocritical, insincere

Now go tell your mommy you learned a new word. crazy.gif.pagespeed.ce.dzDUUqYcHZ.gif
