Thanks, but I suspect it's not going to last long. I can only tolerate indiscriminate intolerance for so long, and that level is getting lower and lower the older I get.

Do what I do and channel ur rage into trolling, rather than outright abuse. Whenever PS really riles me up I just go down tangent alley in the troll forest. Probably still bannable, but most people round here are pretty hesitant to click the ole report button.

Strolling subtly through Troll Forest leaves few tracks.

Ah yes, Mr Moderate...as soon as you can point my indiscriminate intolerance, then we'll be good to continue the conversation.

you just said that you were unable to tolerate indiscriminate intolerance, making you intolerant. that's the irony of your post.

you just said that you were unable to tolerate indiscriminate intolerance, making you intolerant. that's the irony of your post.


Actually, I said I could tolerate it...but only for so long before I had to remove myself from the situation, which I would suggest is absolutely a form of tolerance. Nice try, but you've failed spectacularly.

It's good to know you're still an idiot.

so removing yourself puts you in a quantum state between tolerance and intolerance... wat?

you either tolerate something or you don't. there's no third option lol

You used to have a better grasp of logic. What has happened to you? Perhaps your desire to argue with me has tainted your ability to think clearly?

If I do nothing to try to stop something from happening, I am tolerating its existence. It is simply easier for me to tolerate if I am no longer being subjected to that situation, so I remove myself from that situation. Intolerance is actively trying to get that situation to stop by some action.

You're trying too hard, John.

Disagree, some conversations might become less productive than others here. I don't think they are a waste of time.

is this thread now about time-wasting arguments we've had with woody?

i'm not sure if i can convince him that "i can only tolerate it for so long before i tolerate it" is an idiotic thing to say.

i won't get my hopes up though...

I wouldn't expect you to understand what the concept of tolerance means, John, but you're still trying way too hard. Not that I particularly mind you continuing to embarrass yourself, but I would think that you'd mind it.

I suppose if you consider it bullshit, sure. Alternatively, you could explore the English language and discover its vast complexity for yourself!

It becomes productive when you get past that point. Most of the time, you're still languishing in some fruitless muddle. Sorry. :(
