Lookingfortruth's "Absurd" Rant ;-)

29 posts in this topic

So -----You post a reply without blocking me from seeing it... While at the same time blocking a response... What an ego….

What a coward!

Time for some serious talking…….

Absurd!.. I’m absurd.. Do you hear yourself?….do you realise what you are saying?. I’m absurd.

First did you properly understand the quote? Or simple deduce that Absurdum means Absurd not comprehending the full and proper meaning.

an argument which seeks to demonstrate that a statement is true by showing that a false, untenable, or absurd result follows from its denial

Got it yet?

… They and you may not like it but what I said was true the video was “A” typical of the image many have of Americans…Crass, loud , brash, rude, arrogant BRAINLESS etc. True or not that’s your image.

Remember Brookline? good example…did you notice the three youths at the Ryder Cup.. Naked from the waste up with US flags painted on their chests. Another good real life example….Not to mention the miss it calls..Very nice!

So when I pointed out the truth………This from memory is what we got in response…

“Go hang yourself“ ….“Challenges to my grammar and spelling” The fact that we spell the correct way I might add.. ( not dubbed down for the idiots of America way )… escaping the writers attention.. “Conveniently“… …and the best of all… The guy who gives a long list of countries he has been welcomed in while stating it was like I had a kick me sign when I went to Scotland.. Ho Hum the Muppet NEVER was in Scotland... Big body small brain all of them I bet….I make a statement they know they can’t defend so they go off message….Yes!

In the interests of balance one chap did have the common sense to compare us to old Tom Morris... At lease he made an effort at a tongue in cheek retort.. What he obviously missed, was that Tom Morris and his kind were gentlemen with manners and etiquette. Get the point yet?

Demonstrate to me please. “I dare you“. Where I “started” any of the above individual responses with an absurdity.

And finally.....

I see you claim to be a Pro…. Is that a club pro who makes a living selling Mars bars and fizzy drinks? ..Or a range Pro. Who wastes his Sundays weeping as he tries to teach a bunch of 20+ handicappers with swings like an octopus playing the Bagpipes. How they might get the club back to the ball two times in a row….

I post a goodbye and here we are with you still trying to be offensive and determined to have last word.

That your thing is it? …I must have the last word….. Did you truly understand the Latin.. I mean all of it?

God save America “””from its own people”””

One last point what about the guy who said why did I mention Syria…Come on, even you have to admit that’s a humdinger. ( In case you didn’t notice I never mentioned Syria at any time. )

Enjoy your golf.

Firstly…I have time to do this because it’s raining and very windy outside so Sunday Medal has been cancelled…. Also I like to annoy the feeble of mind as they try everything to avoid the issue in question.

Instead of constantly trying to shoot the messenger… Try developing a cogent defence of the statement I made. That the Video. Golf Stereotypes which one are you…Represents to most a stereotypical image of Americans. Answer that!… It may be true it may be false.. but that was the original statement by me. That everyone has failed to respond to.

I.T.H.. Note: You cannot rant with the written word…It is an oral expression….Nice avatar and nom de plume…probably sums you up.. and someone called me a paedophile. Yes on a golf Forum talking golf someone called me a Paedophile. Only in America. No comment then on the posts of your countrymen? Once again no cogent argument so a selective pointless reply…Maybe were glad your ancestors left Scotland...You see how that kind of ststement can be trurned against you. Your IQ  lower than your Handicap? Yes!

MizunoPez. Of course you haven’t it was not address to you…Why didn’t you just ignore it?

ABU3. go to "Golf Stereotypes which one are you"…

Enjoy your golf.

Lookingfortruth, we have only one real rule here: act like an adult.

In other words, don't be an ass, don't be a jerk, don't attack other people, etc.

You were an ass. A jerk. You attacked others. You failed to act like an adult.

So you were restricted from the thread.

And now you're in the penalty box.

P.S. I know what Latin phrases mean. Thank you.

What brought it on was a new member from Scotland (aka the OP) going to DEFCON 5 and hurling epic insults at Americans on an American Golf forum.  He highjacked a funny thread after someone responded to his half sarcastic statement stating that Euros think of Americans as the Golf Stereotypes.  People, including me, responded with humor.  Instead of staying funny, he began the insults and flame war that he now acts the victim of.  He then played the "I'm rich and drive a Mercedes" line, which was truly juvenile.  Unfortunately, one of our long time members got caught up in this Junior High rant fest, which I am sure he regrets.

I have traveled all over the world and met many wonderful people from just about everywhere.  There are also jerks everywhere, but thankfully they are the minority.

The guy tossed the initial salvo by calling Americans "muppets" (which apparently is a huge insult in Scotland?).  One guy responded in kind (way over the top), and he (Truth guy) started ranting and raving and carrying on, pointing the finger at anybody and refusing to accept responsibility for his own actions.  And then he starts this thread.

Makes me wonder if he's one of those guys that comes home from work talking about how everybody in his office workplace is insane, whereas everybody he works with goes home talking about the one guy in their office that's insane?

    • He started off playing the first hole exactly how he should: fairway, 20-footer for birdie to the fat side of the green, tap-in par.
    • @iacas-Tho it is nice to be able to take your time and type out what you mean to say this is one of the downsides to a forum too-You have to respond to a whole bunch of crap and a person can get all of their thoughts out uninterrupted. If you were been sitting in a room with @natureboy and he started drawing that entirely stupid picture with the lines you could have cut him off and spared all of us the pain of having to watch him so badly miss the point. I bet @natureboy is still going to look at the response-And I bet he is still not going to see where he went wrong. But that is because he is just that way and he is unable to see how stupid his own posts are and how little they actually deal with golf swings. His stick drawing is exactly why you asked for a video-Even though he posted it after you asked. His errors and flaws and stupid thoughts would have been even more evident if he had actually tried to make a vid.
    • Or… golf is hard, and he got hot for awhile. Wouldn't be the first flash in the pan. We'll have to wait to see what the true version is. He could be quiet for ten years and then win a few majors.
    • That makes a great third bullet point. Or a first bullet point, bumping my two down.
    • This photo and the text above illustrate pretty well exactly why I and the entire moderation team is now done with you. The image fails on two levels: The center image is not representative of an actual good golf swing. The right hip is closer to the right foot in the center image, yet you maintain that it's farther away. Whether the second thing is done intentionally or accidentally I don't know. I don't care to know. But it's very representative of how you argue, and why you're now going to be prevented from arguing. You pervert arguments to the point where we're no longer discussing the golf swing. You get basic facts or concepts wrong (like when arguing about course rating, misunderstanding the radius vs. diameter in faulting the rating process for higher handicappers). You focus on some small thing - which often isn't even something anyone else has said - and lose sight of the forest or the big picture. You're not here to help golfers. You're here to "win" an argument, a goal that as yet is unmet, and you have to post absolute crap like the above to try to do it. I had a bit of free time this morning. So I responded to your last post in some detail. It, as one would expect, contains a number of typical @natureboy traits: cherry picking a photo while ignoring the concept, failure to understand basic points, perversion of the statements of others, putting words in the mouths of others, use of vague words like "a lot" (often in combination with the "putting words in the mouths of others), and hyper-focus on some small largely negligible point. Nobody else should waste their time to read the below, or open the spoiler and read that. It will not shed light on anything, it will not help you with your golf swing, and you will not glean any useful information. It exists simply as my last effort at illustrating to @natureboy a small part of the reason why we're tired of him… even though as I post it I know with certainty it too will fail. I gave you twenty warning points last night. It was made clear to you what you had to do, and you failed to do so, flaunting the requirement in several posts. The entire moderation team - @mvmac, @RandallT, @boogielicious, @jamo, @billchao, @nevets88, @mchepp, others - and myself have simply gotten sick and tired of your entire persona here. You're constantly and never-endingly arguing stuff to the point where you bastardize things so much you're no longer even talking about the golf swing, and you fail to comprehend or respond to what's written to you in response. You have two real choices once your current suspension is over: You can ignore these warnings, continue to be a belligerent arguer, and receive a final 50-point warning that will result in your permanent ban. You can avoid behaving in the manner that infuriates the entire moderation team. That will likely mean limiting the topics in which you post quite a bit, because though you fancy yourself to be capable of discussing the golf swing from a theoretical perspective, you've proven that you are not. Now, I want to be very clear about something. You're not being warned or "handled" because you disagree. You're being handled here because you contribute nothing positive. You're belligerent. You don't help people. You don't demonstrate anything. You pervert and distort topics in order to make a point that often has little or nothing to do with how people actually play golf. You're on a mission to "win" an argument, not to further the understanding. You speak as if you know and fail to ask questions, despite the holes in your logic and posts being constantly exposed as gaping. You quite often fail to read what's written, take a beat, and try to understand it. P.S. This requirement is anything but arbitrary. The list of reasons are long, the surface of which was only scratched in this post. Arbitrary would have been to say something like "to continue posting here you must dress up in a purple outfit and post a photo of yourself diving from a diving board into a pool of jello." Asking you to post a video illustrating your point is the opposite of arbitrary.
