Re: Digest Number 1076
- Yes, I agree about "T.C.". The word TROLL seems to come to mind. to
engage with such a person would just give him the jollys I'm sure. He
simply talks like any "true cult believer" type. HIs purpose is to
disrupt and confuse and to thus distract any detractors efforts to
carry on in a truely meaningful discussion. Better to let these types
be exposed for who they really are: closed minded cult relativists on
the defensive. *smirk*

seems to be somewhat of a clarification of what you meant, it's just
too jumbled and too "not on the same plane" for me to respond to. You
seem to need to see in other's writings, or tend to interpret them, in
a way where they're in a position of offending something you believe,
or where they are "against" something that "you're for". People's
detailed responses to detailed situations are effecting your overall
bigger picture or something. You do seem to need to instruct people,
find a reason to instruct them, and interpret anything they write as
"offending" this larger picture or knowledge that you believe you have.
