Let me try and make this simple.
I HAVEN'T EATEN ANY PORK PATTIES IN OVER FIVE YEARS! STOP TALKING ABOUT ME EATING FUCKING PORK PATTIES!

I mean, repeating it three times kind of makes it more complicated.

It just hurts because I thought Tdarcos and I were friends. And then I see him say such hateful things. Makes me wonder why I bother with this site, with any of it. I think back to the times where I really felt close to him, like when I'd pay him to post on Caltrops and he dutifully brought the content or that time where he was really cool when the Hugo article on Wikipedia got targeted for deletion. Such great times lost now. It just gets me down.

It's probably the constant pain and the limited expectations of his future rhat cause him to lash out at us. Don't take it to heart.

I agree 100% with that. I also think Paul has internalized the idea that what guys do is good-naturedly rib and mock insult one another, but he sometimes (often) forgets the good-natured aspect of it. He gets too wrapped up in making his arguments and trying to win pointless intellectual pissing contests. If you're going to attack people over very small things or write multiple angry paragraphs on issues no one really cares much about, it starts to seem personal. I do think he cares in his own way nonetheless. He might honestly consider several board members to be among the best friends he has in the world, but that's just not always going to be reflected in how he behaves in the heat of a discussion.

The Paul that Robb remembers is still there and we'll see him again, but he's got to compete with the other aspects of Paul's personality. That much is true for all of us. None of us are always at our best when we post here apart from possibly Hugella and she's just really sparing with her posts. I hope the future of Jolt Country and Caltrops aren't in any way going to depend on Robb and Paul always getting along because that's probably never going to happen. To be honest, it never occurred to me that that relationship was so pivotal behind the scenes.

Do we all need to stop and consider what life will be like beyond the Tansindome? (That line is just included to prove what I was saying about all of us not always posting at our best.)

I feel bad about that sick jab I got Tdarcos with. It was so perfectly executed but at the same time it made me feel like a real piece of shit. I think we all learned a lesson today on the wrong thing to do.

I think we both said things that are regrettable here.
Now, maybe, you start to understand how I feel. If someone is acting irresponsibly, like saying they are going into a store without a mask, or plan to go to a big 50-person outdoor public meeting and stand next to other people, also withour protection, it might be okay, based on their actions,to say that they are stupid. It is far better and less confrontational to tell them "You're acting (or about to act) stupidly," or "that's the most moronic thing someone said they were going to do I've heard all year."

It's one thing when someone says something you disagree with, especially when it's pure opinion,to call them something insulting. On the other hand, calling their ideas stupid, crazy, moronic, insane, etc., is fine and is part of robust debate. What is not right is to call the person those things.

To be fair, he did win the 2018 pissing into Big Gulp cups contest(s).

There are a lot of Pauls in there, which come to think of it might explain the girth.

The regrettable thing that you said was that Jerry's was anything other than tomato paste on room temperature cardboard.

i can't get involved in pissing contests. I'm catheterized. They take a catheter, it's this flexible hose about the thickness of a pencil lead and a foot long, and after they jam it in my [censored], they then shove it all the way to the [excessively graphic description deleted]. After that, they hook up the catheter to a connector, which provides another much wider hose, that empties my urine into a bag, which they ship to addicts needing clean urine for drug testing, err I mean empty into a urinal and pour in the toilet.

So now you know why I can't engage in pissing contests.

You sir, are a very dangerous person, and you're doing the one thing that has inevitably gotten the death penalty: speaking the truth. Maybe you should consider a job in psychiatry. The rest of the people on this board are in serious need of help.

No it doesn't. Yes it does. Look, I am in charge of my personality. No! I am! No, I am! No you're not, it's me! No, it's me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me!
Hold it, hold it, we need to cooperate or we'll wind up in a psych ward. Okay, I'll fix it.

WE ARE THE PAUL. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE. YOU WILL BE ASSIMIL.....

Oh, where am I? I feel better, like I was all broken up inside and was put back together again.
