Enough with the boozing jokes. I only drink on days that end in 'y.'

Davey the Fat Boy wrote:Yeah. I don’t think I ever picked on him either. But he was frustrating to debate with, because he’d hold onto his “right to have his own opinions” long after every point of his was debunked by multiple people. He wouldn’t offer any arguments for why he was still holding on to his opinions. He’d just state his right to do so and ignore whatever evidence was presented to him.

He also had begun posting an increasing number of frustratingly weak threads clearly derived from right-wing memes. These weren’t legitimate points of conservative debate, but rather, the kinds of logic you get from your crazy-uncle’s email forwards. A lot of his threads were tedious.

But as a guy...he seemed affable and nice. I don’t think we ever had any words that got personal.


Sounds like we had Trump as a board member for a while. :lol:

Some BCBers are better on here than in real life. I think Markus was probably the opposite

good thing yer over any meanness, mwhaha.

as far as the topic goes, i've never felt any ill will to markus. i debated him exactly once, being in the mood as i was over something pretty mindless he said, and his response was to unfriend me on facebook.

i thought it was funny as hell myself.

wish him the best and all. there was a time when i thought he was sincerely interested in the pay diff between male and female tennis players, and i liked that.

he had his likeable qualities. he could also be a fucque.

guess that about explains all of us.

Something was recently brought to my attention on Screenadelica regarding Samoan that doesn't sit well with me, hence that response. I also remember reading one of the absolute worst takes ever from that person about 'Harold & Maude' during the film poll - not interested in their opinion on anything at this point.

i don't have a prob with meanness (per se) on this board. happens every fucquin day, and i've been here for over a decade, mwhaha. the only real probs i've ever had here have been with (a) banning people for meanness, and as i am not the runner of this board, what i think doesn't matter; or (b) the old move of trying to put prog, the hated genre, in some off YY folder so it wouldn't be such an eyesore.

and i love harold and maude beyond words.

no, just pointing out the hypocrisy of starting a thread about being mean to a poster, while justifying yer own meanness.

that *is* what yer doing.

Point taken, though I felt my response was rather restrained. I can be much meaner.

I could have been meaner to Markus.
I could have been a contender instead of a bum (which, let's face it, is what I am)
we'll always have Paris.
may the force be with you etc...

you can, and it is appreciated.

mind ya, i don't think davey was trying to make you feel awkward as much as he was trying to compliment me, in his silly way. the giveaway being his spelling of fucque.

these days? i'm ridiculously fucquin easy. i'll take any compliment i get. pathetic, but i don't mind. the world is sooo awful... i dunno. my closet optimism has taken so many hits, i find myself equally sappy about the impossible dream of getting, say, carded... and the impending explosion of the entire planet of worthless gotdamn humans as a just reward for all the terrible crap.

you understand.

conflicted.

I'm nearly 40 and I still get carded. It ain't all that. Kinda embarrassing and a bit of a nuisance, actually.
