I don't want to stir the kettle, but I guess it's inevitable in this matter.

All, and I mean ALL troll calling have so far been unjust, except for the one Unreasoner made in this thread, along with the overreaction.

No, he follows me around making lazy attempts to correct me in which he doesn't even bother to read my posts. It's his mission in life, apparently.

If you were going to respond the same way as him this time, then you must have reading comprehension issues too.

I rarely, if ever, agree with terez, nor was I taking her side in this matter, which is one reason she expressed shock when I noticed it in another thread...I think she deserves half the personal attacks she gets just by calling people stupid or idiots for not agreeing with her, or talking down to them.

I do not know everyone else's definition of trolling, but MY definition is saying or doing something to provoke a reaction.

That is pretty broad and most every single person here has trolled for a response at one time or another.

I am not on her side, or on unreasonable's side. They both troll each other...

I just dont understand all the "im ignoring you, just wanted to say it so you KNOW im ignoring you" and "im deleting my account, no really, i swear it this time guise!" comments that seem to be trending in the past year or two.

We do seem to let each other get under our skin, don't we?

Your support is appreciated. And especially with the bold comment. I'm not pulling arguments out of my ass, here. There are several common threads to my positions (none of which have anything to do with Terez).

I certainly have more important things to do than follow you around. Although I seem to recall you equating 'having a life' with 'being wrong' (though frankly, if it comes down to having a life or being right about WoT, I'm going with the life). But I enjoy posting and debating in a variety of topics. If we're both posting everywhere, it may come off as trolling. Generally I don't see much point in posting in agreement with you, as plenty of others will do that for me, and generally make whatever points I would care to make on my own.

However if you have a habit of saying things like 'The voice in the end of TEotW was the DO' without any sort of qualifying statement noting that it is only your (oft disputed) opinion, and to people who will take you at your word, no less; I might be more inclined to post even minor disagreements.

Yeah, insult him. That'll make your position stronger.

Look, I understand that what you saw as your main point was more or less along the same lines as WH's. But (at least to me), your implying that soul and thread are interchangeable terms I disagreed with. And apparently so did WH.

I never call people stupid or idiots simply for disagreeing with me...ever. I call people that for making dumb arguments, and I usually only get angry enough to call names when the logic is aggressively bad.

That's an overly simple reply to my post. I (at least partially) explained the situation in the parts you didn't quote. And the simplest solution is one I provided a short while ago: put me on your ignore list. I can't put you on mine, as you know. But I can't possibly be looking for a reaction from someone who can't even see my posts, so (from your pov) no more 'trolling'. And you can't logically accuse me of it anymore (objectively, at this point). So less acetaminophen damage to my liver.
