    See? Whereas if you had been here longer, you would have thought, "Oh, there's Tilty!"

    No, I still would think the same thing: internet bitch.

    Before you two kill each other, Victor's been pretty quiet about his anti-women views for the last six months. Perhaps that's why the perceptions are different.

    I like that attitude. Go here for a treat:

    Vic has won. He has created cognitive dissonance. I'm sure he enjoys it.

    In the example here, pretend it's guys who are really into motorcycles talking about their motorcycles. Would you jump into that conversation with "I don't think people should ride motorcycles. Motorcycles are dangerous." I hope your answer would be "No," or "Yes, if I were feeling masochistic."
    Let me take that analogy a step further. If a single band member started playing out of tune or had a disruptive tone, but everyone else ignored him, would you still feel irritated? In the context of this discussion, everyone has the option of either putting Victor on ignore or ignoring his posts the old fashioned way. However, if everyone is effected, then surely I can understand why you would be irritated. A forum member can't stop another from posting controversial opinions or being alien, but they [i]can[i] stop themselves from redirecting the tracks of the train in reaction to that person. I would even go so far as to suggest that it's possible to address someone like Victor in a way that doesn't veer everyone's discussion off a cliff to explode into atoms.

    Here's a good example:

    But what mytho-poetry does Victor live for?

    Ahh, the classics. Maybe we just need a Mega thread to consolidate these.

    I don't understand.
    Blow him off or ignore him, is that what it boils down to? I always have until this point. In this particular thread, there is no discussion except Victor. I think I acted appropriately in the thread he disrupted. This is the thread his disruption was created for and moved into by a mod. He dropped his subject as soon as he was disagreed with.
    Let me know where I'm missing the point. I see you trying to tell me something but I'm not sure I get it.
