I've know LoD for a few years. I've only seen you around in the last month. I'm gonna have to side with B9 and LoD on this one.

You assume too much, kipper. I fear the idiocy is far more genetic and far less imbibery.

Reason for edit:: removed blurb and image. Image was too damned big and getting on my nerves.

you would like him to insert two sharp prongs into you that then fold down and hold on for dear life?


He's got two prongs? I know there was something special about LoD...

Lay off lordofduct, P4P. I have yet to see you make a post that is sensible or in any way worth reading. By all rights, I welcome diversity to the community, but you... well, I just plain don't like you. ^^

Fair enough, I suppose.

Yes, I know... You're the one always clicks that damn red button. You're not a very good shill because you don't say anything and rely on numbers to deter opposition.

I don't care, though, so your efforts are wasted.

What makes you think he's a shill at all? And for what or for whom is he shilling? And how does he shill without saying anything?

And what on earth are you on about?

Like I'd really put forth any 'effort' for an internet argument ^^ Go on, keep doing your thing. I'll sit back and enjoy the madness.

I've noticed a lot of shilly arguments in the gun threads and so forth on this site. No doubt we've got 'em.


Doubt it. Perhaps the odd Microsoft or Apple apologist ( no money in Linux ), but that's more a hobby than a vocation.

I'm not sure this is really the right venue for such interests. Well, not the actual meat of the site. The Lounge? Honestly, if you're trying to mold the minds of would be consumer/voters, you'd do better with 4chan. Look at the flack you got just for posting. :P

Guns? No... people can feel strongly about something without any extra prodding. Once someone feels strongly about anything, logic is pretty much done. In fact, once a strong opinion is formed, counter opinion, regardless of merit, seems to only strengthen the currently held opinion. This does a lot to explain politics in general.

I'm not sure how effective a shill might be, really. At least for politics. People in such places already have an agenda. Consumerism is far more fluid, unless a firm branding bias has taken hold. Enough people give the daily widget the thumbs up, the better it does.

He's shilling for you, of course.



@Baavgai: Ah, man, why did you have to go and be reasonable? You just totally derailed this thread.

The whole site is just a giant shilling ring. We're all shilling Chris' site for Chris. It's like Inception. But dorky.
