Don't ignore Meade. He's a treasure.

I refuse to respond to Meade on the Paulie Heenan thread (and I encourage everyone else to do likewise) but I do have to wonder: Does he have an actual psychological disorder? Is there a name for someone who is literally unable to just shut the fuck up? Because without exaggeration he truly seems incapable of just stopping when enoughs enough.

Meade- JUST. STOP. POSTING.

You don't need to get in the last word. You don't need to try to demonstrate that you are the wronged party. You don't need to explain yourself, prove your only interested in a search for the truth or otherwise participate.
JUST. STOP. POSTING.
And maybe consider psychiatric help.

Seriously. I am concerned about you.

See, there's three kinds of people: dicks, pussies, and assholes. Pussies think everyone can get along, and dicks just want to fuck all the time without thinking it through. But then you got your assholes, Chuck. And all the assholes want us to shit all over everything!


Moderate Meade the asshole. He found an opportunity to shit all over something and ran with it. the ignore function is lovely. if not for people quoting him I wouldn't know he was here shitting all over everything.

Unfortunately, this will only encourage Meade to continue posting. And, since it appears that the admin wants nothing to do with the wrath of Altmeade, he has little to fear with his douchebaggery. Call it Dipshitlomatic Immunity, if you must.

There are now more posts on the above-mentioned thread about Meade then there are about Heenan, Walter, or anyone else even remotely affected combined.

I know Meade won't listen but can't the rest of you just stop responding please?

This is heartbreaking.

I don't like 'meta' posts, but its worth stating here:

I refuse to respond to any of his posts. Even posts that have the appearance of being on topic. There's just no there there.

Why do you, and Isthmus, insist on coddling the trolls, especially this one?

Do you seriously think it's good for the forum?

Hollow words or merely no longer operative? Or is Meade special in ways others can only imagine?

I'm done staring at this traffic accident. As much as it draws me in to see how bad this disease is going get, it's better for me to stop looking. I think I'll just mark the user's profile as a "favorite" and go there once a week to see if he's still posting. If he is, I'll move on to other activities. As fascinating as it is to watch this new disease develop, I've seen enough. There are now no topic areas that are immune. "See" you guys sometime in the future maybe.

It's neither good nor bad, it just is, really. Nothing is preventing you, me, anyone else from just letting it roll off. But I believe that the instinct to respond is what drives traffic to the site. The difference between checking in once a day and five times a day is conflict. As long as there's a message board here, there will be conflict.

Troll: noun...
Anyone who disagrees with the progressives on this forum.

Meade almost always disagrees with you, therefore Meade is a troll.

This isn't a forum for discussion, it is, mostly, a circle jerk for those that cannon stand outside opinions. Has honest discussion even occurred to you?

What a bunch of pathetic losers most of you are.

What a cliche post this is.

Hey Sandi: Did you actually type that, or just copy/paste it from the work of any number of donkeys who have written it elsewhere?

Hey Sandi, remember this? How did it work out for you? Talk about pathetic losers. I hope at least the unicorns were tasty.

I usually watch CNN election night, but may switch to MSNBC just to watch Mathews, Ed and Maddow soil themselves and have a major meltdown. :wink:
