Comments: Terri Schiavo dies

Off to that great buffet in the sky

Way to go, Blackglasses. You met my expectations. I, seriously, fully expected you to poke fun at her death when it came. Calling her a "vegetable" and "hamburger" when she was dying, as you did, would certainly not be enough to satisfy you. I was just curious as to what angle your hatred would take.

Do you ever get tired of always being so preachy and boring?

Are you crying now?


You must be absolute murder at dinner parties (I'm guessing you aren't invited to very many)

I get tired of having to read yet another, on top of other, hateful remarks from you directed at helpless people. How painful it must be to not have an audience that appreciates your little tantrums. Very sympathetic picture.
First you show off your 'toughness' by casually making cruel remarks about a dying, now dead woman, then you cry like a baby when I criticize you. Grow up.
Dinner Party? I can just imagine the little circle of guests at a dinner party that includes you. All standing around, drinking select wine, and... making jokes about the dead and dying. Sorry but I picture you slipping into a bedroom and stealing some crack and cash for an evening with the skinheads, not at a dinner party.

You think he's old enough for wine? Somehow I don't.

One day there'll be a school shooting and we'll find out tho. "Who did it?". "Nobody knows his name, nobody would ever talk to him but it was that dopey kid in the black glasses".

"...it was that dopey kid in the black glasses".

LOL

Nice turn of phrase.

I return to this site and see more squabbling from a patriot and a joking hipster. Do times never change?

Mikem, is there a reason you're engaging with this twit?

Guilty.

I am so proud to expose to the world what a bigot you are, mikem. Everytime you say 'Canadian' you show to the world who you really are... You must have learned that when you were defending hawaii from the vietcong.

Also, I find it hilarious that I've managed to engage a 60 year old veteran in the most childish flame war known to man.

I think we know who the smart one is here.

I think that is the appropriate reference.

Blackglasses has been banned, and I apologize to everyone for allowing Blackglasses the freedom to comment on this site for as long as I did.

I mean that sincerely. I was naive to believe that he would have his fun and move on, and should have intervened earlier.

I would like everyone to know that Mike wrote me some time ago to let me know that if I had a problem with him taking on some of the trolls that he would back off.

I told him that, on the contrary, I was very grateful that he had shown up because he was taking a gigantic burden off my shoulders.

Mike, thank you for helping me out, and thanks to the rest of you for your gentle hints that I needed to deal with the BG troll effectively.

Now I'll have to get used to checking the comments without gritting my teeth. I think I can manage that!

Blackglasses,

You might have more credibility if it weren't for the unmitigated joy you express when other human beings suffer.

Posted by Flanstein at April 1, 2005 11:16 AM

Sorry, Flanstein, I deleted BG's parting comment before it occurred to me that your comment would look downright odd to subsequent readers.

Ahem. How about those, er, Jays and/or Raptors?

Posted by Debbye at April 1, 2005 01:31 PM

I can't speak for all of us but I'm fine - no idea about those Raptor guys.

Posted by Jay at April 1, 2005 02:54 PM

I actually found Blackglasses' comments to be quite amusing. In a harmless listen-to-that-teenage-baseball-fan-second-guessing-the-manager kinda way.

Posted by Tuning Spork at April 1, 2005 10:46 PM

For me it was annoying - not what he said, but the way I ended up checking who a poster was before reading the comment (and skipping if needed).

Posted by Jay at April 1, 2005 11:00 PM

Tuning Spork: With respect from someone who also has an appreciation of outrageousness, you are dead wrong on Blackglasses. I don't want to dog him badly since he is now banned and cannot respond, but he was not at all like second guessing the manager. It was more like calling the umpire's wife a whore and kicking the kid in the wheelchair.
For me personally, BG falsely attributed quotes to me, falsely claimed that I sent an anti-Semitic email to him and regularly made gravely hateful remarks about the most sympathetic, usually helpless people in the news. It was pure nasty trolling and he was proud of it and dared (literally) Debbye to ban him. I have no sympathy for him. And I am not a fan of banning, having been banned myself for arguing too persistently against banning someone else at another website.
It would have been nice to have someone with BG's energy (he had that) to spar with on issues but he just wanted to drive commenters away by abusing them and making any comment an invitation to troll hell.
Obviously I am not a fan, but for me his only 'positive' effect on commenting here was that he was a good posterboy when I wanted to poke fun at Canadians. And that was not fair to Canadians.

mikem,

Oh yeah, I forgot about all of that falsely attributed stuff. I stand corrected.
