    That would explain a lot.

    Okay.

    I've perused the rest of your posts in this thread. I still think you're a self-important blowhard.

    I'm feeling for a writer who wrote an article with ironic opinions in here a while ago. She was condemned, her opinions denounced. No clue she was writing in another style than realism - no clue of that sort from anyone in the ISTJ land. In the ISTJ land, everything is literal. All other kind of expression is cheating and terrible.

    I'm beginning to wonder if the ISTJ land is world wide.
    Frustration? Is that what you call what you did in that old thread?
    How about a drunken rage against those "inferior" to you.
    Then you had the entire thread deleted.
    Believe me, I'd link to that thread if it still existed.

    Don't give me anymore of your pseudo-literary drivel.
    I'm the last person on earth you want to try and impress with that crap.
    I have a degree in English Lit.
    Not only do I know literary devices, I can easily recognize someone pretending to know them.

    That's you.

    As if whining about your "high IQ" isn't enough,
    now you're whining because people don't realize you're the ghost of Ernest-fucking-Hemingway.
    You have no right to denounce people simply because they don't appreciate your "writing style."


    I find the ideas of most everyone substandard, even if expressed in standard language.
    Those words are vomitus.

    Perhaps the reason you're so misunderstood is because you run around in Final Fantasy costumes. Such misunderstandings would get you shot or speared in some cultures.

    I haven't been trying to impress anyone with anything like that too hard.. not that it'd be a criminal offense trying to impress someone But no, the style hasn't been anything I've wanted to impress people with. If you'd want to condemn all the people who don't stay stuff just as they are, you'd have to condemn a hell lot of people. Perhaps you'd like to continue condemning the people who do say the stuff as they are, as a continuation to your crusade.

    Really, I don't see evidence of any of your degrees helping you in any way. You've approached some messages I've wrote from a weird angle, something I've tried to clarify when I've got the time. I couldn't bend my mind to the idea that you wouldn't understand some things, so I left them unexplained.

    Saying things as they are and saying things as they aren't isn't very difficult, and some of the twists can be understood quite well. Perhaps you're just eagerly wishing others would make sense in the way you'd like them to. Perhaps it's good style to give clear hints of one's real stance over the issues. I'm not sure, I'm no expert, I've just loved good fun on some other forums - and people have had no problem with joking to have a weird opinion, for example. What I've done is a honest attempt at good communication, even if the communication has been a bit tricky.

    Now why would you take away my rights to denounce people? That kind of right is exercised all the way, all the time. People complain about the TJ, the S, their dog and everyone else, too. Perhaps I've complained a bit too much, but that is a different problem.

    I do feel being misunderstood by the kind of people who think that numbers 1,2 and 5 are living, feeling things, while I'm trying to convince them otherwise. I do feel being misunderstood by people holding a lot of strange opinions I can't accept. I don't think I have directed my disapproval to any persons in particular, but mostly at issues, although I have vented now and then.

    Perhaps you're mad for getting another player in the disapproval business? I mean, that's your business, isn't it? Do you write a lot of stuff where you don't dismissing anyone for their stupid thoughts? Stuff where you don't promote yourself as someone vaguely authoritative?

    I recommend to chill off, examine things and reply some time after.

    Considering we've never really had a conversation, that's a strange claim to make.
    You're delusional.

    Oh my. I'm sure those that are unfortunate enough to be without your approval lose much sleep. Boy, I sure hope I'm not one of those people some day. Jee Whiz, that would be alot to endure. :rolli:

    Hmmmm. Looks like you might want to take your own advice.

    By the way, whose your tailor? I'd like his phone number if you don't mind sharing it. I'm interviewing for a job as a clown at the circus and none of the stores in my area stock such haberdashery.

    Time for my MENSA meeting. Gotta' go!

    Oh boy, there comes a morning after a night of drinking, and it's now. If I felt misunderstood then, I should have just made myself understood, and that's it.

    I would've missed the advice that I need to improve my language, tho.

    It sounds like you are talking about written language here, and I can relate to what you are saying. Written language has no tone or body language to it, so it can be hard to communicate sarcasm or irony. These types of things involve subtext and a "reading between the lines", but it's much easier to communicate subtext verbally as compared to written form.

    When I'm writing on a message board I try to put a smilie in their of some sort to indicate subtext, but this is kind of a poor man's substitute. The really good fiction authors can skillfully indicate subtext through the text alone. They put in extra words to indicate sarcasm, and while these words wouldn't normally be in vocalized speech, the author makes them seem like they could be. There is definitely an art form to it. Writing is not like talking, but some can make it seem like it is.
