After you’ve finished off your Christmas and/or Tuesday dinner, please nominate your favorite troll(s) for Man Boobz’ Second Annual Troll of the Year competition!

Pecunium the Tedious: I have been placed on moderation to prevent me from eviscerating your comments in real time; it allows you the last word. Very clever. Furthermore, frankly, I am surprised the Boobz King let my comment through.

Is Steelpole defending why he isn’t a troll or why he’s better at trolling than everyone else? Either way, I definitely want to read it. Remember, Steelie, if you annoy us, you’re trollin’.

And you can always post your defense on your blog!

I suppose many of them see themselves as Flame Warriors for the cause rather than trolls.
Just one of their many fails per day.

I see that I’ve been placed on this registry for selection for this circlejerk “Troll of the Year” despite being barred from contributing; I cannot defend myself or provide context. To this I say – typical Boobzland; typical dishonesty. Contemptible.

Are you rehearsing your acceptance speech, Steelie-poo?

Don’t you love how he calls it a registry? Does he think we’ve set up RegisterTroll.com?

Steelpole, like all trolls who have socked because we didn’t take their first handles seriously, doesn’t understand the concept of looking desperate.

Notice how I didn’t say that.
I guess I should write it out more formally. I hope I can be forgiven for not knowing the alt+ for all the terms.

All A’s are B’s All trolls here are misogynists
X = A Diogenes The Cynic is a troll
Therefore Therefore
X=B Diogenes The Cynic is a misogynist.

P┌Q

The problem is that I am not a misogynist. Thats the logic fail. The conditional proposition is wrong.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Dumbass, you’ve made misogynistic statements and assumptions all over the place and flatly refused to even think about the problems with them when they’re pointed out to you. So yes, whether you believe it or not, you are a misogynist. You’re not one of the rabid variety – nobody’s saying you are – but you need to take a good look at your beliefs and LISTEN when people point out the problems with them. You speak from a very male-privileged position and really don’t get it. Misogyny isn’t one-size-fits-all any more than feminism is, so don’t come the “I’m not a misogynist!” cries when your history here says otherwise.

Diogenes; I’ve just read the responses to your comment; and I am appalled. I hope you do not take anyone here at Boobzland seriously; they are a collective of groupthinking misandrists; enforcers of the feminist status quo. Male privilege, as Unpaid Help evokes (tedious… they have the same three buzzwords) doesn’t exist.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

And this:

But in Boobzland – to toe the dogma, makes one a troll.

Thus saying the exact opposite of what he means! Oh gods, he’s a shoo-in for the Andrea Dworkin Language Prize at the very least.

Perfect, just perfect. A Poe would be dead of envy.

PS shouldn’t Steele have his own category of Mangled Metaphors in the glossary? “To toe the dogma” is priceless. I haven’t seen such gems since my first boss used to come out with stuff like “biting at straws”.

So wait, Steele’s been let through mod to defend himself against charges of Worst Abuser of English and he attempts to defend himself with these gems?

Diogenes; I’ve just read the responses to your comment; and I am appalled. I hope you do not take anyone here at Boobzland seriously; they are a collective of groupthinking misandrists; enforcers of the feminist status quo. Male privilege, as Unpaid Help evokes (tedious… they have the same three buzzwords) doesn’t exist.

First and foremost, that is not how semi-colons work. Second, ellipsis in your parenthetical is either excessively long, or proof you lost your train of thought.

Unpaid Help, you dolt, “to toe the dogma” clearly implies to challenge the dogma; that is, to question the misandrist assumptions that underpin, foundationally, the Manboobz apparatus. Typical Boobzland dishonesty.

I repeat — that is not how semi-colons work. Also, kiki’s right, to “toe the line” means to conform to the standard. So then “to toe the dogma” or “implies [a] challense to the dogma”? Which were you going for there? They’re directly contradictory, so please pick one.

Last, but certainly not least —

Addendum: My point is that here at Boobzland; egregiously and moreso than at other communities, to disagree is to be labeled a troll; myself, The First Joe and Diogenes the Cynic, off the top of my head, have offered cogent rebuttals to your radical feminist, misandrist dogma that laughs at men’s issues and makes a hobby over trivializing male pain. But in Boobzland – to toe the dogma, makes one a troll. Since this is so, Manboobz has become a recursively radical community; any dissent is silence; thus, you become more and more misandrist and contemptible.

For the love of all things holy! Stop butchering the semi-colon, what did it ever do to you?!

In summary, you’ve just offered proof that you are, in fact, the Worst Abuser of English; you attempted to defend against that charge, and instead supported it, nicely done. (This is how a semi-colon works, you could replace it with a period and the clauses would function as separate sentences. Please stop using them as random thought separators, that’s what commas are for.)

Diogenes: The problem isn’t P┌Q.

It’s this So, now hatred of women is somehow defined as being disliked by The Kitteh.

Show me how you got to that. Because while it’s true that she said you were a misogynist (and as I said, the evidence is moderately strong that you qualify), I don’t see her dislike being a part of the equation.

Varpole Butthorn, Puppet of the Sockmasters: My dear boy, I see you feel neglected, and suffering for a lack of attention; as such you have deigned to set me a challenge (in that you’ve yclept me tedious&dagger. I am flattered, it’s rate that someone who has been obdurate, otiose and obtuse, manages to recognise that people have chosen to repay him in his own coin. I understand, naturellement this was a fortuitous insult; that you are, almost without question, so lacking discernment, detachment, and deliberation, to have made that connection by grace of intellect, but even a blind cat can sometimes catch the mouse.

I should however like to point you to a small error in the extrapolation you have made from your fortuituity§. You said you were in moderation to protect me from your eviscerating me in real time. You forget that even were you not in moderation that you would not need to react in real time. There is no way for anyone who reads your words to know what the delay was between your reading the comment and your reply. It is also clumsy to impute that I have no better thing to do than to be sitting at my desk, frantically hitting “refresh” in the fear that I shall miss your perfection of persiflaginously purple prose. Once it has moved from the crystalline realm of thought; after the sparking of the synapses have tripped your neurons, activated by your hypothalmus; shifting your state of mind into one of reactive emotion. Then, of course, in the thrall of your priapic passions you put digits to keys and then trips forth the repetitious reminders of the remonstrance your teacher (perspicacious though she was, and self-fulfilling as you insist on making her critique) your words are permanent. At that point they are fixed. From that point forward I am either eviscerated, or amused.

If Dave thought I was in need of protection, he wouldn’t be worrying about the speed of your response, but it’s very existence. Were I so weak, fragile, mewling and defenseless being as you seem to think (though why; from our previous interactions, you should think I am at all devastated when you take the effort to make me, rather than some other member of Manboobz Acadamy of Rhetoric and Logic, is beyond me). But he lets you post; not with the speed your hungry ego craves; no you are forced to the frustration of being kept waiting. You must wonder if what you say will be lost, swallowed up by the pace of interaction which you are presently denied.

Sucks to be you.

† forgetting that in a social setting such as this one, where conversation is also performance art, tedium is a function of the entertainment value (or lack thereof) each poster provides to the community. Some are amusing for their wordplay, or the delicacy of their repartée, others make their contribution in the form of setting themselves up to the be butt into which others send their darts. There is also the category who provide nothing more than material for mockery; the skeletons of future in-jokes; ways in which the old hands can show the bona fides which only come of having been present for some epic meltdown, or perhaps merely the risible efforts made by those who are flailing in their failure (though to be honest, there was a soup¸on of brilliance in Torvus Butthorn, and so I use that nom de la chaussette to commemorate your singular rise to brilliance)

§ one which, dolorous though it is to relate, undercuts the scope, power, and range, of your aspirations to le mot juste and the truly cutting turn of phrase; of the sort which makes one’s interlocutor’s step back with well-deserved respect, and the audience who happen to see it thrill to the grace, the stylistic charms and the delicacy which which the insult is moved past the defenses of the victim, so the sting comes later. Not the brutal slap of the thug, but the slender poinard of the assassin.

Guys… did I manage some semblance of “tedious”? I’m not sure it managed to rise past tendentious; but there is a limit to how Varpolean I manage to force my thinking to be, much less my writing.

Toe the dogma? WTF do you think that means?

Toe the line is a term from the British Navy of the Age of Sail. On Sundays there were inspections (the men were “called to divisions”) and they were to stand in a rank, their toes on a line in the deck.

This is still done in the US Navy, though primarily during boot camp.

So to “Toe the ‘x’ (what ever one uses for ‘x’)” is to adhere to something, not to oppose it.

Toe the line or toe the mark
: to conform rigorously to a rule or standard

Typical Merriam-Webster dishonesty.

(I expect Steele will now try to tell us that ‘conform rigorously to’ means ‘challenge’. Actually, if he does try that, he gets my vote!)

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Steele, honey, there is no such phrase as “toe the dogma”. Toe the line means conforming. Toeing the dogma … well, if there were such a phrase, it would mean the same thing. You could have tried “bucking the dogma” (stolen from “bucking the trend” or some such, but you wrote the exact opposite of what you were trying to say. That’s got nowt to do with misandry or groupthink or anything else, it’s you mucking up a common phrase. Again.
Unless of course you think that writing standard, intelligible English is somehow being unfairly constrained by groupthink, which in your case is quite possible.

Seriously – do you read anything? Any books? I’m genuinely baffled (no snark involved) as to how anyone who does can write so badly. And don’t trot out the evil misandrist teacher line again. If you haven’t managed to educate yourself since then, there’s a lot more going on than one teacher pointing out (correctly) that your English needs a lot of work. Go do a basic writing skills course, for your own sake. You might learn something and who knows, you might even enjoy improving your skills.

pecunium — your attempts at Steele-esque abuse of language strike me more as extremely well written purple prose, I’m not even sure it counts as purple prose, as each bit of it is slowly but surely edging towards Steele’s defenestration. Hm, eviscerate and then defenestrate? I seem to recall that having been a standard punishment for something or other…

Steele — please, please do not throw out “decimate” now. It means to kill 1/10th of whatever group is being referenced, contrary to popular usage, it does not mean to thoroughly destroy (try raze).

everyone — you know, that might’ve been my favorite moment of The Master’s chaos, when he did this —

The Master: Shall we decimate them? That sounds good, nice word, decimate.
[to the Toclafane]
The Master: Remove one tenth of the population!

Don’t think I ever cheered for The Master besides then.

Steele is verbose, but more in the way a small bathroom is cluttered with stuff. You were verbose in the way a good museum is loaded with more treasures than can be admired in a day. It would be great if you got through to him, though.
