    I'm pretty new to OT, but it seems like at least once a week I read a topic from someone who comes into a forum like The Arsenal, or Eastern Imports and puts a thread up asking about why someone feels the need to own guns, or drive an import, etc....



    but after 3 or 4 posts it becomes pretty clear they have no interest in listening to anyone else, they just want to keep repeating their anti-whatever opinion.




    Why do people do this? Attention? Crusading? Just being an :asshole: ?

    I guess OT is a troll magnet.

    What pisses me off is that he doesn't bring any facts to the discussion, doesn't even try to convince me.

    There wasn't a single good argument that I could even respond to.

    i remember when i was 13, a lot of my friends would do stupid things like that and think it was funny.

    i think they're just trying to amuse themselves.

    i don't believe it was. although your opinion differed on many points from some of ours, you maintained what i felt to be a debate(which in my defintion is differing view points being presented with civility) the other person(who i believe to be the person in question) merely came in with a troll/nanny-nanny-booboo type mentality. if i am wrong(and i don't think i am), then someone will correct me.

    no this was aimed at "Gullanian" in here, and "trogoldyte" in the Easten Imports forum...



    I like discussion, but some people are just out to be internet assholes, and I wanted to call them out.




    oh well :)
