Some of y’all reading this know what I’m talking about, and the ones that don’t, well, I don’t really think a lot of gawpers is appropriate, so I’m not going into specifics or posting a link.

Anyway, I’m debating someone online. And I keep meaning to just drop the thread since it has devolved into the other person gnashing their teeth at me.

But I don’t, because she keeps coming back with some silly accusation about me.

The thing is, I just don’t believe in turning the other cheek. I don’t believe in roundhouse kicking someone in the face either. Well, usually. But I do believe in trussing up someone who slaps me, and then explaining to them that slapping isn’t nice, and then Clockwork Oranging them until they can’t slap people anymore.

Or, oops, maybe I just like trussing people up. Mmmm. Shiny rope.

Um, anyway, so I feel bad that I’m mucking up someone else’s online arena with the silliness, but at the same time, it’s just not in me to back down.

I think I’ve got a few strands of fiery red hair hidden underneath all the black.

    Since there aren’t any specifics mentioned and I think I know what you’re referring to- that person is a flaming dipstick. His/her arguments are as shallow as a wading pool and s/he gets childishly defensive. They even have a post in their own LJ about it that is a lot less polite than your post here. I don’t understand why s/he is even getting that upset over what you said in the first place- arguing “I want to be able to perpetuate cruelty!” is a pretty ridiculous cause to carry the flag for…

      Yep, you definitely know what I’m referring to. And yep, she’s such a hypocritical ninny!

      That woman has issues.

      It has been really hard staying civil to her. And then to have her accuse me of “nasty” behavior . . .


      I really did appreciate your note of support in that fracas. I kept re-reading my posts going “Am I flaming her? No . . . I don’t think so . . . she really is just being unaccountably defensive. I think.” I felt much better after you popped in.

    Um. Just a thought. Roundhouse kicking people in the head does have a tendancy to *stop* the converstation. No more talking. And if you do it right, not many moans either.

    I mean, not like I would ever do anything like that. Or recommend it to anyone else. I’m just saying.

    Good luck on keeping your cool.

      I’ll take your not-a-recommendation under serious advisement next time!

      Although there are other ways to silence people. Ball gags! Ooo, rope and ball gags . . .

        If you REALLY want to shut her up…

        Beat her up and call her a HITLER!!!!! That’s what I always do!!!!

          Another vote for the roundhouse kick approach! Hmm. There must be something more to that method than I initially suspected.

            Remember where this advice is coming from…I wouldn’t follow Doom’s advice blindly. 😉

            Shhh! Don’t disagree with the guinea pig. He’ll call you a Hitler and beat you up!

          • silicates says:


            I’m the one person in the world he loves, and when he calls me a Hitler, he doesn’t really mean it. 😛

            He calls me an unfit mommy all the time, though. Sigh…

          • Eugie Foster says:

            Re: Nah…

            True, but I’m not his mommy, so if it’s all the same to you, I’m not going to risk Doomy’s wrath. He’s one scary fuzz ball, I tells ya.

            (And you know he doesn’t really mean it when he calls you an unfit mommy either.)

          • silicates says:

            Doomy is a ferocious little guy. His red eyes reflect his true soul!

            I’m sure that as soon as I show up next weekend for Fall Break, he’ll berate me for being an unfit mommy and then forget that I was ever gone, and go back to pooping copiously and telling me about how everyone else is a Hitler.

        “Ball gags! Ooo, rope and ball gags . . .”

        Man, if that’s the way it’s done these days, George and I need to get into more arguments…

        • Eugie Foster says:

          Aww, but why taint the fun with the pre-nastiness that an argument brings about? It’s not nearly as enjoyable as a little bit of pointy foreplay.

          There’s more than one way to obtain rope and ball gag-ness.
