I don't think this one's sarcasm. I don't actually know anybody that's into numerology, but there's plenty of dreck floating around about it. I call this one probably sincere yet completely misguided.

so we don't actually get an answer to whether they are a moron or a troll? shame.

i'm hoping this thread doesn't degrade into posting things that are actually true and that you just happen to disagree with...

For example, there was this guy who used to come into the store I worked at and claimed he was a numerology guy, and was always going on about how these numbers predicted this and that (it was especially funny because he'd ask me to add numbers and he usually came out wrong), and claimed he worked on HAARP to induce earthquakes. He also said that the rapture was only a year or two away (this was about two years ago).

Until you've actually met someone like that it's really hard to believe that these people exist, isn't it?
I mean how many ways are there to prove to yourself, even without accessing any kind of external resource, that the "web bot" could not possibly predict 90% of current events. It's like they have no filter whatsoever that's connected to reality.

usually if you keep reading the thread, or check their post history, you can get context that makes it clear which one they are. note: this doesn't apply to exceptionally dedicated trolls.

i do like the premise of this thread, though.

Not enough inflammatory stuff so I'm going with moron; trolls tend to bait more.
I go to the gym to justify my mockery of fat people.
