  •  You are badly failing (13+ / 0-)

    the "don't be a dick" test of trolling.

    •  So now disagreeing == "being a dick" (0+ / 0-)

      I doubt Markos would agree with that.

      What is it when someone calls a person a troll because they just don't agree with them? I notice you don't seem to have anything to post on that.

      We were not ahead of our time, we led the way to our time.

      •  You're doing more than agreeing. (20+ / 0-)

        You're being deliberately obtuse.  Even after having it explained to you, you ignore the difference between block-quoted material and the diarist's editorial comments, and pretend the former doesn't exist.  When challenged, you revert to content-free one-liners.

      •  It's possible to disagree WITHOUT dickish behavior (8+ / 0-)

        People here manage it most of the time.

        Getting snotty about a news report from an established news source is being dickish.

        If it's
        Not your body,
        Then it's
        Not your choice
        And it's
        None of your damn business!

        •  But it is NOT POSSIBLE to 'win' (5+ / 0-)

          the argument with them.

          Give up on that.

              •  Dear sir/madam: (0+ / 0-)

                It is EXTREMELY dickish to drag comments from ALLEGEDLY PRIVATE KOSMAIL into PUBLIC discussion threads.

                It may even be against site rules and endanger your ability to continue posting here.

                If it is impossible to express a candid opinion here IN PRIVATE without it being dragged out in public, then THERE IS NO REASON TO HAVE KOSMAIL AT ALL.

                And if you can't see that trying to cross 1000+ miles of open water in a small plane with a severely depleted fuel supply is STUPID, then you ARE an idiot.

                Stop trying to "win" a "contest" you lost over and over and over again. There is no prize for being "right".

                If it's
                Not your body,
                Then it's
                Not your choice

                •  You want your comment to not be seen ? (0+ / 0-)

                  Don't write them .
                  Don't be two faced about others being dicks while you are being one yourself .

                  It may even be against site rules and endanger your ability to continue posting here.
                  Oh thank you for the warning of what might be .
                  Did you ever happen to see , Saturday hate mail-a-palooza" ?
                  Emails full of people being dicks .
                  If it is impossible to express a candid opinion here IN PRIVATE without it being dragged out in public, then THERE IS NO REASON TO HAVE KOSMAIL AT ALL.
                  My candid opinion is that you have rules for others that you don't apply to your own behavior . You are wanting one set of rules for yourself and another set for others .
                  That's a child's game . You are rude and nasty and you say you want others to not be dicks ? How about you take care of your own problems ?
                  And if you can't see that trying to cross 1000+ miles of open water in a small plane with a severely depleted fuel supply is STUPID, then you ARE an idiot.
                  Rude , nasty and wrong . A trifecta .
                  In reality , going a thousand miles over water with that amount of fuel is done . Even if you want to claim otherwise .
                  Stop trying to "win" a "contest" you lost over and over and over again. There is no prize for being "right".
                  That's funny coming from you right after you said
                  then you ARE an idiot.
                  You are trying so hard to win that you have to do your dick act with insults . You are two faced , one set of rules for you , another set for others .
                  You are insulting , rude and wrong .

                    YOU take your own advice, then!

                    And if you don't want to get a rude and insulting reply in Kosmail, DON'T SEND A RUDE AND INSULTING KOSMAIL!

                    See how easy THAT was?

                   "you lost over and over and over again."

                  You claim I lost and you won ?
                  Brilliant !
                  You know so little about the subject that you think you won .
                  That's just more bullshitting .
                  Brilliant !
                  You know so little that you don't even know how very poorly you really did .

                  Insulting , rude and wrong isn't winning .
                  It might be popular , but it isn't winning .

                    •  You still don't get it (0+ / 0-)

                      it must be intentional at this point .

                      Your fixation on what isn't important must be a cover
                      for what you are unwilling to concede was a blunder on your part .

                      If they were flying to The Canary Islands or Lisbon , the point is still the same , I've showed you a few different times and you refuse to see it or admit it .

                      Do the math yourself .
                      Its not that hard .

                      •  No, there's a HUGE difference (0+ / 0-)

                        Like, over 1000 miles of open water.

                        There's also a HUGE difference between starting across the ocean with a full tank, and having to cross it with less - especially less than a half tank.

                        I've given up on "the math", since we're not even using the same figures or the same calculations.

                        Don't EVER apply for a job as an airline pilot.
