After I refused to delete a thread that he asked a bunch of mods to delete, he sent me this beauty:

Who called you in the conversation?
Do you enjoy mocking me? Do you enjoy the self-destruction of CYS under your command?
But who called you in the conversation/ When I asked for mods, I left you out especially because I don't want to see your presence . I don't NEED you, I don't WANT you, I won't acknowledge you as a mod until you prove to be a mod and not a troll with mod powers.

Can't you just ignore me? No, your big fat EGO needs to see someone burn, and what better target for trolling than that one guy who did some big dumb crap in the past that nobody seems to want to forget?

oh, you don't like what I say? It must be a lie! #JJJlogic.
my example looks from an unrelated angle like something that looks like a logical fallacy? Then I must be a moron! #JJJlogic
Two people have a discussion and you barge in with an argument that has already been proven wrong? Wow, you must be so great! #JJJlogic.
You like calling Steve's actions fallacies and you don't notice the dumb shit the others say? You must be intelligent! #JJJlogic.

I'm tired of you
I'm tired of your shit, I'm tired of you not doing your fucking job, I'm tired of you not taking measures again spam then complaining about spam.
I'M TIRED OF YOU.
You're an incompetent disgrace to the title of moderator . You're the biggest plague that ever affected CYS. You're useless. You're the vilest troll, engaging in others' arguments for no reason . You're a joke.
I don't know how the others stand you and your behavior . You're a jerk, a jackass, a buffoon with authority.

You do not deserve my or anyone else's respect. I was a fool to consider you competent at the beginning. And I'll be a fool if I will ever do it again .

Your views are not always right. The world doesn't revolve around you.
And for the sake of everything there is, stop lying about me.

I can't remember what it was that he was blatantly lying about but it was pretty obvious and Sindri called him out on it and that's why he wanted the thread deleted in the first place. Also, I'd just like to say that he's not the only dude who has done bad things in the past. Swift used to be a huge spammer and we get along pretty well :)

Have you ever considered the possibility that you may be mentally impaired?

From: Steve_Greg

Date: 7/13/2014 8:03:41 AM

yes, THREE FUCKING YEARS AGO. 
I'm tired of people reminding me of my past mistakes, THEY ARE FUCKING PAST, AND I CAN'T FUCKING CHANGE THE PAST. 
Let's say you suddenly mistakenly call most people on a website "yeasty cunts". so you get kicked out. Two years later, you return, announce you're the guy who did that, only because you want to get in touch with old friends, and suddenly everyone finds you the butt-monkey of the website because of the old mistake. The first few times, you show the middle finger at the screen, but it's the 5th time for me , and my temper is shorter than yours, plus that fucking Jerk keeps claiming lies about me. 
I'm in a similar situation. The only difference is that I was right in the original argument and they still claim I'm wrong, since gaming IS a sport, as you may have noticed if you read the links with which I replied to your troll comment (now first post of the derailed VG thread). 

So It's like you tell the truth, they don't believe you. Then, they keep saying stuff related to it, to annoy you. It seems like defending the truth when JerkJerkJerk is drunk (at least 48 hours a day) is an endless struggle with the only option being failure, regardless of arguments.

Derailing the Video Game Thread

Yes, feed him... feed poor JJJ until he gets fat and dies of heart attack from all the cyber-cholesterol from the food you feed him... yes, people, feeding the trolls shouldn't be stopped, it should be enforced so they DIE ALREADY.

 

Derailing the Video Game Thread

7 years ago

It doesn't work that way. Trolls are like vampires, they attain immortality and power from their food, (Unless they're lame-ass Skyrim vampires, in which case blood nullifies their powers) and you can't store fat or much cholesterol at all from blood. That's why anything of human size and make could not possibly live on blood, and why vampire bats have to fly south for winter. Drinking all that "blood" food would simply fill up the troll's bladder, with which the troll would piss on anyone it pleased, until they get really pissed and start popping vessels and hemorrhaging, which would make the trollpire stop pissing, suck out the now easy-access blood to refill his bladder, and then piss again until the victim has no blood left or until his bladder is totally empty.

That's right, vampires don't use sharp teeth, they use hardy urethras.

Derailing the Video Game Thread

I'm sure you view yourself as the innocent victim here, but I want you to pay attention to the fact that you literally claimed that someone should die. "it should be enforced so they DIE ALREADY." (see, here I used quotation marks, that makes it a quote unlike the quote you got angry at even though I didn't use quotation marks, making it not a quote at all. See the difference?)

Even from your perspective of JJJ, he never expressed he wanted you dead did he?

I want to be fair here, as fun as it can be to point out Steve_Greg's bursts of anger, after the "opinion debate" thread, he actually did send me a message which resulted in a calm and rational debate continuing the debacle from the thread more like adults should, where he actually did acknowledge that maybe the answer wasn't as simple as "him being right and me being wrong" and that this was a result of us being used to different phrasings.

 

From: SindriV
To: Steve_Greg
Date: 6/18/2014 6:12:09 AM

Both examples sound equally like Hitler to me.
Of course each word in a sentence as a meaning, that's why I don't say "my opinion is", because the fact that I am saying it shows it is my opinion, therefore making that part of the sentence meaningless.

From: Steve_Greg
To: SindriV
Date: 6/18/2014 4:59:30 AM

eh, for me, the two expressions have different meanings altogether.
"my opinion is that meat is disgusting" = your opinions. Just an opinion.
"meat is disgusting" = I somehow automatically feel evilness emanating from the phrase, the desire of the one who said it to stir things up . Opinion or not , I see it as something said out of hate for meat . It's like you want meat exterminated from Earth.

A slightly bigger example:
"my opinion is that Jews must die" . Not many Jews will like me now. I could probably join a neonazi clan that does nothing else than shave themselves and show their butts to Jews. But nothing too serious.
"Jews must die" . Do I sound like Hitler yet? While an answer to the above would be " Your opinions are fucked up" , the answer to this one would be "CALL THE POLICE, A RACIST ANTISEMITIC BIGOT IS ON THE LOOSE".
I've been taught that each word in a phrase has to have a meaning. One word less will change the meaning. One extra word will also change the meaning. Heck, reading one word with a different accent can change the meaning (I think this only applies to Romanian).

I'm actively jealous on those who just say part of what they want to say and everyone else just knows the rest of the phrase. (especially Cockney people)

From: SindriV
To: Steve_Greg
Date: 6/17/2014 4:51:28 PM

If I say to someone "my opinion is that meat is disgusting" it will have the exact same effect as if I say "meat is disgusting". You literally just phrased the second phrase in a friendlier way to make it seem like your point is valid. Without doing so (making the "my opinion is" the ONLY difference", the sentence has the same effect.

Still, instead of pointing at others, you are now at least acknowledging that at least part of the problem might on you instead of everyone else being wrong, which you were kind of doing earlier. Kudos on that.

From: Steve_Greg
To: SindriV
Date: 6/17/2014 4:09:42 PM

his answer was disappointing. He practically confirmed he is "moderatrolling" but he's not the topic, so , back to what I was saying.

How am I supposed to make the difference between what you say and what you mean?
Let's say you have a bad opinion on meat. So you say "Meat is disgusting!" Let's consider that I do not know what meat is, as i'm poor and never tasted it (just assuming). Seeing you claiming that meat is disgusting will make me believe too that meat is disgusting even before eating it. Of course i'll have to eat to see for myself but I will already have the pre-defined idea from you that it's disgusting. Congratulations, you unwillingly enforced your views on me!
People who haven't formed an opinion yet are prone to be influenced by others' opinion. I say this from my own experience. And from the experiences of my family and friends. And people on the internet. Too many people on the internet. Especially when you say " meat is disgusting!" instead of "I'd rather not eat meat, I think it's disgusting".

So, once you've stated something, an opinion, I can do what the internet does with opinions. In short, discard them. But, if it doesn't really seem like an opinion, I feel it's contradicting what I say. And since I know what I just said is truth, and because of my own personal nature, I take it as an insult. (I probably should go to a psychologist or something. I know my problem but I'm not qualified to solve it. Now where to find one......)If what you said had the "i think / my opinion is/it's probably/maybe it's/it could be ", then the conflict wouldn't be, because, while opinions can affect others, the impact is minimal. But since it did not contain those words, I feared that others would believe it word by word ( call it paranoia but it happened to me IRL too. And an old Romanian saying says "he who failed precautions once will check for them even when not needed" ), and since it contained a lie about me, which i dislike, I wanted to prevent it. And it went downhill from there.

Maybe it's the fault of my mindset. I myself did once what you did here: said something without warning everyone it's just a harmless opinion (it applies in Romanian too. AND HOW!).... And believe it or not, I have to come every two months to the local police station for declarations because of it. So now I don't understand how come others still do it. I don't know how to feel about it. I put a barrier for myself because I saw it leads to unwanted consequences for me, but it seems that others, in this case, you, are not affected by these consequences, and I don't know what to do. This "it goes without saying" is an expression that I want to remove from my vocabulary , to remove this habit, while others seem to add this habit and have no problems.

Do necromancers believe in past lives?

If they do, and if they are right, does the soul of the person he's made undead go on and reincarnate, I mean, the soul doesn't stick around, right? Otherwise it wouldn't really be undead which wouldn't really make him a necromancer.

If that does happen, what happens if the reincarnated being meets up with his undead past self? Will there be a connection between a soul and a previous body it inhabited? Can it return to it's former body, therefore making the person not so undead anymore?

Derailing the Video Game Thread

7 years ago

It's possible that some sort of lifestream is in effect, meaning that the necromancer can just pull a little consciousness and shove it into a body, just enough for it to move and respond to basic orders. Of course, the lifestream wouldn't explain direct reincarnation. New consciousness would, of course, be born from the lifestream, but it would be impossible to trace who was who in a past life, because an old consciousness would be dissolved completely into the lifestream.
