Wow, I headed over to that thread just to see what the fuss was about, and I came out rolling my eyes so hard it hurt. About the only useful thing I learned in that whole thread is that apparently "plastic bags drifting in the wind" are one of most "environmentally devastating" events in existence
Seriously, do these people even go outside?
[This was before continuing his troll volley]"Yeah, well ---- ---, because I'm out of this thread too."
Reminds me of a recent exchange i had with a certain non-ISTJ poster who got all pissy at me. The process and the end result were the same. She began insulting me and hurling accusations against me, the former which I chuckled at and the latter which I corrected. You should've seen her post walls of anger and hate. She claimed she was done posting in that thread, but as soon as I replied to that post, she promptly returned with more raging. Just as what happened with Ti Dominant, the thread got closed and she got a temp ban. I'm going to guess Ti Dominant has a previous record of offenses on PerC as this non-ISTJ had become known for antagonizing other posters and even mods.
I don't mind that one person described it as a "troll getting out-troll'd" at all. Yes, I could've been the mature one and backed off. But that would've ruined the fun. All I did was employ common sense to point out that maybe she wasn't handing out the best advice to OP and that her perception of the situation could be kind of clouded. I also pointed politely out that much of the fluff she was posting(her own personal life stories, experiences as a member of "her generation", etc) was with very few exceptions just irrelevant facts with little value to the OP.
Being attacked when your logic isn't flawed and the poster is a raving loony...well...it's hard to resist defending yourself. It's hard to resist trying to lighten the situation up with some clever witticisms too.
The problem with the internet is that you can't just insult someone and retract that post or repaint it as something else without risking having someone quote you directly and call you out for it. The most you can do is just (a) ignore the other poster if he calls you out on it and take better care to think before you post or (b) just apologize and move on!
But when the other person does neither and continues to dig his grave deeper and rage at you, the only thought on your mind is "Fresh meat."
So, Ti Dominant was banned again.
