By popular demand, our resident OFA troll “hellomynameissteve” has been invited to leave. And by “invited,” I of course mean unceremoniously removed under his current phony email address.
Now, let’s not kid ourselves: he’ll be back under a different fake name and temporary email address, if only briefly, in order to tell us all how we fear his speech and wish to squelch dissent. That his ideas — which are regurgitated talking points that, because they are set up as impenetrable to reason and impervious to correction, can be ever repeated as if they were born anew each time he uttered them — were simply too advanced and intimidating for we sad and sordid lot of rancorous racists to engage effectively, and thus we removed him in order to shield ourselves from the heavenly illumination of the reality based community’s dazzling Truths.
This is, after all, the same pattern we’ve seen for the past 12 years here. It’s a final flourish of self-proclaimed victory and intellectual onanism, one that often leaves a spot on the rug.
When this happens, join me in this canned (but appropriate) response: “there are no bad students, hellomynameisshill, only bad teachers. So. If we couldn’t learn from you despite your repeated iterations of the same iron-clad arguments, then you must be the suck.
“And as this isn’t yet a union operation that protects the jobs of ineffective, mediocre intellects, you’ve been let go.
“Though if you need references, send along a note and I’ll see what I can do for you.”
