I apologize in advance for my language in this post. I endeavor to keep this blog PG-13, but some times a man has to say what a man has to say to other (I think) men. You've been warned.
Everyone, please stop feeding the troll. He won't post your comments, he controls everything on his blog to make sure that only the Right Thoughts™ appear there. You'll never win this way. Here's how you win.
Baldr Odinson (whoever you are, assuming I spelled your pseudonym correctly, which I don't care if I did or not), I challenge you to a man-to-man contest. I will prove by blog combat that you are a pussy, and that you are also an idiot. Your ideas are weak, yea, weak unto death. They make your blog weak, and everyone knows it.
I will prove this, to the Internet's satisfaction, or I will grovel and ask for mercy and forgiveness. As the Knights of old did, I offer to prove this, risking my body (well, err, traffic and Internet reputation) against yours. Not that I want your body. Ewww*.
You are a pussy** ***.
You moderate comments, not because you get so much traffic that you attract spammers (you wish), but because you are, y'know, a pussy. You can't actually take real criticism. Pussy.
You leave comments on the gun blogs, but flee when people reply to your comments. Your intellect is weak, and you take the safe but cheap route of tossing a grenade, troll-like, into a comment thread and then Sir-Robin-like scampering away. Pussy.
Your traffic (for someone who's backed by the Brady crowd) would best be described as "pussy-like", but that would be an insult to honest pussys throughout the Internet. You, on the other hand are a dishonest pussy.
And I can prove it, in front of everyone on the Internet. Here's my challenge:
- Open your comments, as mine are open here. I delete comments, but only if they are spam. For the purpose of this challenge, I will agree to delete *no* comments, even spam.
- Put up a post in reply to this post, accepting the challenge like a man. Someone who refuses to hide behind comment moderation.
- After seven (7) days, whoever has the most comments (on your post or mine) wins. If you win, I shall apologize handsomely, both in a comment to this post and in a separate post. When I say "handsomely", I mean "will exceed your expectations". As the Knights of old said, I will prove this at the risk of my own (blog) body.
- If you lose, you will post a simple "Borepatch was right" post. That's all I ask of the likes of you. Pussy.
You won't take me up on it, of course, because you're a pussy. You know that your arguments are weak, and can't convince anyone - as indeed the entire Gun Ban lobby has found to their dismay. Your practice of avoiding conflict and discussion has made you weak, and you know it. Even against a nobody blog like me.
And because you know you're weak, you're a pussy. You know it, I know it, and everyone on the Internet knows it. So put up or shut up. You've been called out. Man up, or crawl away to hide under a rock. And no whining about what a "brute" I am - these are words, dude. Sticks and stones, and all that. We'll never meet In Real Life, so don't piss your pants and everything. Or email me, and if we meet up, I'll buy you a beer and we'll talk about this (not fight, duh) man to man.
Let me say that again, so all the Internet can hear: man up to this challenge, or STFU and crawl away like a pussy to hide. There are no other choices.
To the Gun Blog community, that's how you deal with pussies. Stop feeding the troll. Stop putting up well reasoned arguments against what they post, when you know that they're too pussy to reply. Pearls before swine, and all that. It's making me cross to see such a waste of fine intellectual horsepower. It a stupid game, and we should stop playing - unless Baldr is (unexpectedly) willing to act like a man for a change. Which he isn't, because he's a pussy.
* Not that there would be anything wrong with that, of course, except that the lovely and thinks-I'm-hers Mrs. Borepatch would kick your sorry ass from one end of the gun blogosphere to the other and back. Don't think that she wouldn't, you pussy.
** No offense to honest women everywhere. Except Joan Peterson, who manages to be simultaneously an actual, you know, woman and an a weak, disengenious, two-faced lying comment-moderating pussy just like Bladr. I'd challenge her to a duel, too, except that a Man doesn't go after a lady that way.
*** I try to keep this blog PG-13, but enough is enough. If I can say that Mitt Romney is gayer than Twilight, I can say that Baldr Odinson is a pussy. Unless, of course, he mans up. Which he won't. Pussy.
