    Don't let the sarcasm fool you, I much enjoy when someone gives me a response that isn't up to snuff. Strengthens my resolve that I'm right. Because if you thought you had  a cogent response, you'd have posted it.

      Sargoth is right.

      Your complete ignorance on this issue doesn't warrant a more indepth response. You don't know what you are talking about.

      If this is a reality based community, we should be sticking to reality, not scapegoating entertainment.

      In summary,

      Note: Does it strike anyone else weird that the guy who is going all Jack Thompson on video games is named Tony Stark?

      •  There is an inherent difference between me n Jack (0+ / 0-)

        And your idea that you don't have to respond substantively is a cop out because you can't. And to compare my arguments to Jack just shows that you're skimming and intentionally ignoring the wide gulf between them.

        In summary: You can call this your community, but I wouldn't because you don't do the community any justice. Immature little jpegs or not. You might want to go to Huffignton Post with what your idea of a discussion is.

          •  Nothing at all. (0+ / 0-)

            The more you refuse to engage, the worse it looks for you.

              Yes, you lost.

              Yes, you refuse to provide trustworthy data (to be fair, because it doesn't exist) that reliably supports your position.

              Yes, the majority of people on this thread, on this site disagree with you.

              Yes, your argument was based on fearmongering. Demonizing of media, a tactic that has been around us for ages, and was bullshit then, and is still bullshit now.

              And despite your protest, that's exactly the kind of crap Jack Thompson engages in.

              But this can be a learning experience.

              Protip: Next time, I suggest bringing "facts" or "evidence" to the table. Seriously.

              Miiight help out a bit.

              It's great to learn, because knowledge is power!

              You're welcome. ^_^

                Those same people would have been near uniformly against same marriage full stop, marijuana legalization, and the idea that a black person could be president in their lifetime.

                I lost nothing. I engaged, and a few engaged back. You were not among them and posted little pictures. I get the tactic. I've seen trolling. I reply bigger, you reply smaller. I reply smaller, you reply bigger. Shrink and expand, Art of Trolling (and actually War) 101.

                I did post a massive 15 year long study. Not that you read or are seriously engaging. I actually have the far more nuanced view of media than you do. Not that you're reading or seriously engaging. You see, you're incapable of doing anything but what the other party does. That is to say you'll just bastardize anything you disagree with instead of having an earnest discussion, as I have been.  And you try to act cutesy to deflect from the fact that you don't really know how to argue that well.

                You say I'm exactly like Jack Thompson. Okay. Name all of the ways that I am like him and I guarantee you in every single aspect, there will be a not-so-subtle difference. No, I'm thinking you go back to jpegs. Wise choice :)
