T Nation

6/16 Strong Words, How Appropriate

“It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument.” William G. McAdoo

Is this just a coincidence or just timely information from the T-mag staff.

Anyone who has ever read some of the threads on this forum understands why this is necessary. Far too many intellectual “discusions” degrade into trading insults about ones manhood, race, and sometimes even our beloved mothers.

For all the less sophisticated individuals out there let me paraphrase for you… “If you don’t have a clue what the hell you are talking about, shut your damn donut hole!”

Good one!

A certain WWII thread comes to mind…

Couldn’t have said that better myself. Good one.

Dude - it’s pie hole. Not donut hole.

Yeah - I’m looking for a fight. J/K

Of course you couldnt have said it better yourself.

“It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument.” William G. McAdoo

Yes, to the ignorant fuckers who post here and elsewhere and and are at you job or school wherever, this is why some of you always sound so right to yourselves. Your too fucking ignorant to know how wrong you are.

My favorite example is the fuckers that bash research but dont even know what qualifies as real research or how to determine if a study is sound or not. If you know the diffrence and can show the studies poorly designed the bash away! If not shut the fuck up.

Remember instead of negative ignorant comments, and idiotic behavior try to contribute in some way to this world. Dont leave it with your ownly contribution being the small piece of earth your body ferilizes after your dead.

This is exactly why many of the old timers on T-Nation quit trying to educate some of the mentally less fortunate and discontinued posting; which is unfortunate for the education of everyone.

Seems like the idiots are being held at bay recently relatively well. Seemed like BLWB and Griffie are just making little noises now no major bothers.

Yes, I dont think you could come up with anything nearly as clever or insightful as that.

Oh and you are not worth the time it takes to use the spell check.

Yeah, that is appropriate.

I read that today and I thought “damn, I gotta start a thread on how true the Strong Words are today.” Looks like somebody beat me to it.

How true that statement is. I learned a long time ago that its useless to argue with morons or ignorami. Not arguing with those types saves a lot of time and trouble, trust me.

I’m just scared shitless that I’ll end up on the wrong side of that statement.

You know me so well. And I agree, spell check does take TONS of time.

You know what, I’m going to go ahead and end this. I will no longer respond to any of your silly and childish posts. Since the quote so aptly puts it, I’m not going to win this argument with a truely ignorant person, (which you’ve so clearly proved you are, so thank you for that) so I’m not even going to try. Have fun in school. Learn to spell and use grammar. I can’t wait until you join the real world. Peace.

interesting that you should use such poor grammer and spelling in your obviously well thought out, intellectually stimulating rant. The use of so many ‘you’ and ‘your’ when the proper words should have been ‘your’ and ‘you’re’ or ‘you are’ were merely to emphasize your point eh?

It’s just absolutely amazing. You’ve read it, you understand what it means, but you just can’t help yourselves.

Like a bunch of crack addicts who swear they’ll quit. Your sucking on the pipe with one breath and swearing that your going to quit with the other.

If someone posts a reply which is not really relevant to the topic or uses poor grammar in their reply, why are there those among us who attack and incite these people to the point where these threads become a pissing match?

I just don’t get it. Do these people sit at their keyboard and jack-off every time they get some poor sap pissed off?

It’s on thing to flame ridiculous posts like “I need to gain 20lbs. of muscle by next week so I can look good at the beach.” or “What’s a good steroid for making my penis longer?” But when someone makes a legitimate post, you guys need to stay on point. If you can’t make an intelligent contribution then step away from your computer and bang out some pushups until the urge to be a jackass leaves you.

Conan. The point of my post was ‘on topic’. The original was a comment on arguing with the ignorant and Mr. Jersey5150 stepped into the breech. Don’t you find it somewhat ironic that he agreed with your original post in the way he did? The comments that he made to other ‘posters’ were also quite entertaining. Like the quote said “It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument.”
It seems that he has decided not to argue with me, so I can’t comment on who would win.

Your (cant I just use your? I hate typing you’re or you are all the time.) right. I am guilty, I was in a bad mood and where I would have made comments more politely I didnt.

Really When I relflect on the people that trully diserve to be hated murderers, pedophiles, terrorists, HIT jedis, ect. ect.

It makes me realize the ridiculousness of getting into a negative argument with people I dont know, and who are probably good people.

So from now on only friendly debate outta me.

whoa whoa whoa…wait a second, there’s a steroid to make my penis longer???
