Tell tale signs that you've been trolled by Jimbo

Postby Sam Stone » 08 Jun 2020, 20:54

Classic Jimbo trollery and we (me included) all of us fall for it over and over again....

1) Find a sensitive issue everyone else is worked up about

Something you have little knowledge of and couldn't really give a fuck about.

2) Post a controversial opinion about the topic others are sure find offensive

Remember, the more borderline-psychopathic and illogical your argument the better!

3) Sit back and watch the fun!

How you'll laugh as other BCBers try and reason with you by pointing out clearly thought through and
and logical rebuttals no reasonable (or reasonably sane) person could find fault with.

4) Repeat steps 2 and 3 indefinitely or until another (fingers crossed!) even more upsetting issue comes along

5) Repeatedly called out on an especially nonsensical statement you made which is impossible to justify?

Simply post "what I meant by X was in fact Y". To make your disclaimer doubly effective, feign exasperation
and throw in a few pejorative terms ("You pod people/sheeple/normies obviously don\'t understand that when I said black
I meant white..."

6) Argument and outrage beginning to flag?

Simply lob in another even more implausible and morally questionable post
and set the board's collective blood pressure boiling all over again!

Here's an earlier thread where Rorsach suggests we put J on ignore.

Having long ago passed from the attempt-to-reason-with to the deride-Jimbo-for-every-idiotic-new-utterance
I'm beginning to think he's got the right idea.

thankfully, my blood pressure's just fine.

he used to be decent. now he's an ugly, nasty, bloated-brained fucquer who thinks goin to the gym makes him salvageable.

look at the bright side: at least ya don't actually hafta live with him, mwhaha.

and another: as far as i know, he is no longer teaching. can you imagine??

I'm not sure what this thread accomplishes other than giving him more attention, so just to counteract that, here's the first place I'm going to post this piece of bullshittery, which apparently he's standing behind:

Jimbo wrote:Just learned about George Floyd's criminal record. He didn't deserve to die like that, I guess, but he ain't a hero nor a martyr that's for sure. Go down on one knee for an asshole criminal like him?
Jimbo wrote:My point is to save the world from WWIII.

Jimbo wrote:This bullshit is horseshit.

1959 1963 1965 1966 1974 1977 1978 1981 1988 2017 2018 2021? 2022?

With his idiotic conspiracy theories and inane topics all over BCB like Japanese knotweed it would be hard
to detract from the high level of attention he's already got for himself.

Think it really is high time you, me and everyone else who regularly rises to his toxic bait simply refused to
play ball.

Best way to do this would seem to be by either ignoring his toddlerish outbursts or simply stop him from polluting
other threads by moving our responses to a thread like this or R's earlier "Let's put Jimbo on ignore" effort.

When no one pays him any attention, he'll soon get tired and hopefully fuck off back beheath the stone he crawled out
from under.

Nice attempt at dodging the real burning issue of the day, btw, Hatz, but what the phuck dat shit did you
forget to have for breakfast thus am, btw?

Just added step 5

5) Repeatedly called out on an especially nonsensical statement you made which is impossible to justify?

Simply post "what I meant by X was in fact Y". To make your disclaimer doubly effective, feign exasperation
and throw in a few pejorative terms ("You pod people/sheeple/normies obviously don\'t understand that when I said black
I meant white..."

6) Argument and outrage beginning to flag?

Simply lob in another even more implausible and morally questionable post
and set the board's collective blood pressure boiling all over again!

While good news for us - his insensitive conspiracy theorising and other inane postings are slowly destroying BCB - I sincerely hope his absence is not the result of some kind of bad news for him

Word. If you don't like what he posts, put him on ignore.

A few more days and we can risk opening the BCB gym (Tokyo branch)

As I've said here a gazillion times, my ignore function is internal. For me personally, it's easier to know what he's said if I'm to respond in a way that might be helpful or enriching to someone else (I've pretty much given up on him being reasoned with).

Am I blissed out by him not posting? No, it honestly doesn't have that big an influence on my life.

As I've also repeated from time-to-time, I hope he's OK, but I also hope he keeps not posting.
