Fine, Mr. Picky. Throwing more truth in journalism out the window than is customary and doing it in an obvious way. That better for you?

Most publications will at least pretend to have some integrity and like people to believe they have credibility. The Mits blog journalism in TenTonHammersí publication isnít even pretending.

Given the usual goon rhetoric, isnít that a clear case of the kettle calling the mirror black?

No. Fox news is a waste of bandwidth for the same reason the Mits articles are and Murdock is an even larger ass. At least Mits does it for fun. For the record I think the same of MSNBC. Iím NPR, BBC and CNN all the way, though the last is obviously not so great anymore if it ever was.

See? I knew you could do it. Good boy. You succeeded in writing something that made sense. That having been said, your Fu is seriously lacking some Kung.

Also, your previous posts still require a rewrite and/or explanation to be understood. Of course thatís entirely up to you. Perhaps you just wanted to be vaguely ominous and cryptic. Were you going for inscrutable? Cause that would be cool.Very Happy

Weak sauce and not even a passing acquaintance with logic. He knows the words, but lacks any comprehension of the meaning. Zero doesnít actually have to act confused, heís in that state perpetually. Now donít stare too much at the little troll, folks, itís not good manners.

You are now actually accusing an internet paper of condoning "bigotry" because they ran a column about an internet spaceship election.
Your trolling is so awful that if it was in school, it would have to stay late after class just to fail.

Bigotry. For an election article about internet spaceships on an internet newspaper.
Bigotry.
Seriously.

Yet again, let's see if Windy can spot the massive logical and procedural fail in this letter writing campaign, eh?

"A rhetorical rant biased in such a way as to please his master(s) followed by an elementary grade level attempt at sarcastic humorÖÖ..complete with reference to bodily waste."


Just wondering, but have you considered not trolling? Maybe just as a change of pace to switch things up a bit?
Do you, perhaps, have some sort of fetish about "masters" that you're trying to work out on the internet? You seem quite fixated on the master/servant dynamic... you are aware that there are some private clubs that cater to that sort of thing, yes? Do you, perhaps, really not understand the points I made beyond the fact that they were mordant?

Here, since sarcasm and logic seem not to get the point through

Quote:

If youíre tired of seeing articles of the type The Mittani wrote,


This presupposes that either you are a reader of TenTonHammer, which will make them question why someone was so dense as to read their site for an extended period of time and not realize than an opinion column was an opinion column and will then change their editorial standards for such brain donors, or that you're not a reader and they particularly care what random folks on the internet who aren't even giving them traffic, think.
These are both deeply flawed assumptions.

Quote:

if you want to see something better, write [email protected]


Likewise, if you are not a reader and you tell them 'I don't like you having opinions in your opinion columns!', they have no reason to take you seriously. If you are a reader, they have even less reason to take you seriously.
However, if you aren't even a reader the hollowness of your threats becomes even more apparent: after all, if you're not a reader, how do you know what vibe and tone they're going for? Random, uninformed angry people are dime a dozen on the internet, why would they take you seriously? You're not helping them attract advertisers, you're not helping them build their site's statistics, and most of all they have no reason to believe an uninformed angry internet person is really going to read their site if the reason that angry internet person is writing in is, obviously, because they've been greatly upset by an internet spaceship editorial. :I don't read your site, never have, and I obviously don't get it... but if you change how you do things I'll totally read it. Scout's honor."

And in either case, you are helping spread word of mouth and attract readers to see the controversy, since nothing attracts a crowd like a crowd.
You are, quite frankly, irrelevant at worst and a source of comedy to their editorial staff at best. That's the only "appreciating" they'll do.

Or, as pointed out in fewer words:

Quote:
"Dear TenTonHammer, I wish to inform you that

So that's a no then, you refuse to stop trolling.
And, I suppose as an addendum, you refuse to get any better at it.

Hint, one of the two of us is emotional and irrational:
-One of us is pointing out the facts and logical errors inherent in and angry internet letter writing campaign.
-One of us is hoping to organize an angry internet letter writing campaign in order to get an online publication to fire one of its writers, because he wrote an internet spaceship opinion piece that he didn't like.

Three guesses as to who is who.

If you believe the so called campaign is ineffectual, why are you wasting your time trying to convince people not to pursue it? i.e. If thereís nothing to worry about, why are you worried?

Dang. Youíre doing it again. The words are there and I understand them all, but youíve put them together in way as to create minor gibberish. Itís like youíre using a translation program to translate from another language and then posting the result. Or like one of those Nigerian phishing letters. Please work on this problem. I sense and see hints of an intellect that deserves to be properly expressed.
