Reply Subj: The whole point of my post, DaveyM, was that engaging with you...

...is an exercise in futility.

Much as Fifthchild stated, you cherry-pick feats and put up this demeanor that your opinion and your version of "the facts" are an immaculate temple to which anyone that disagrees with you is wholly unworthy.

Also - when someone does present 'evidence' that at least presents a credible argument to be discussed you:

1) You put unfavorable conditions upon the discussion. For example, not too long ago your response to a Thor fan was to demand what Thor's done in the last two years. Nevermind that in this very thread (and others) that you've stated that neither Thor, Namor or Hulk has had any significant powerups in the last 30 years. How does someone argue against a circular argument like that? If there's been no power ups, why put conditions on feats? Ugh.

2) You regularly deride anyone that likes the Hulk, Marvel, et al. and don't hesitate to make the argument about the posters rather than whether or not their argument has merit. You're so biased AGAINST some posters that you can't get over yourself enough to admit when one of their feats is legit. Like it or not, the Hulk-club is much better about acknowledging non-Hulk feats than you ever are at giving the Hulk even faint praise.

3) You run away. Let that sink in for a bit. Whenever anyone with similar 'scan skillz' challenges you to duel, you pack up camp and high tail it to another thread. I've seen several posters put up multiple scans to counter your points and once you get cornered...you bail. Now I don't consider myself one of those folks, mostly because I can't be bothered to learn how to post scans nor break out my collection and scan pages every time I want to prove a point...but I very much admire those amongst you that do. What I find interesting, however, is that you rarely engage with Incriptus, LGU, Maestro or others like that who can match you scan for scan. You, instead, like to act like an internet tough guy and bash those of us that don't post scans...and decry us for not providing 'evidence', though most of the time you know exactly what we're talking about scan or no scan.

Normally I think you provide an interesting point of view, but all of your other behaviors really just make me want to avoid this particular board. It's much easier to avoid you and engage with those that I might disagree with, but find the tone to be much more civil. I don't mind being wrong - heck, that's the best way to learn something. What I mind is being condescended to...and I can't have a discussion with you or read your posts without at some point you being condescending or abusive.

...so in closing, I'm not whining about you long distance. I'm telling you to your face - debating you isn't fun. It's a pain and a chore. I turn on my computer for entertainment, not to be told by some faux-authority how I'm supposed to enjoy my chosen hobby.

The last word is yours. After all, it's back onto the ignore list, so I can't read nor respond. Enjoy!

Thank you, Jaysin, for writing what many of us have been thinking.

It's funny--what you said in your post is what I have been saying (but with less eloquence than you) for years.

His response shows that nothing has gotten through...as he admittedly states that he is proud of the reactions to his posts and views it as a job well done.

If this were happening face-to-face in public, he'd be given a citation. Or worse.
