no not the ones you see on your wall, but the ones that seem to gravitate to message boards like flies to feces. ignore them? mock them? abuse them mercilessly? what about when they are too stupid to even understand what's being said about them?

Perhaps you could post a thread asking what should be done with them. That's always an option.

I think, if you can't set LizzieCurry on 'em, it's best to ignore 'em. If you're not going to get a massively entertaining drama-llama trainwreck out of them, then they're not worth your time.

yeah, i'm getting that. they're too dumb to be helped and generally don't even understand the abuse you hurl at them. but, still, it can be fun.

"Really stupid posters?"

Mostly, I just try to ignore papa, but it's important to call him on his stupidity every now and then.

I still think it's important to address stupid THOUGHTS (even if you're the only one who perceives the stupidity,) but perhaps less emphasis on what you think of who made them would keep discussions more on track?

He's a faker, and you've been taken in by his con. And in doing so, you are enabling him. He is doing more damage to aspergers than papa's words ever could. -Chane/Liverpool on me having asperger syndrome.

roro, you haven't ignored anything i've posted in months ya lying pissant.

barker? who let you out of the word association thread? and who told you anyone gave a flying f*ck what you thought?

dg, i agree that it's stupid thoughts, but sometimes over time you see that it's not just one thought or set of thoughts that a poster expresses that denotes them as a moron. once a pattern emerges it becomes impossible to ignore that it's not just a few ideas, but rather an entire mind that's corrupt. don't we owe it to that person to point out to them the folly of their entire belief system through systematic mocking and taunting?

So Papa. Enough of this ****footing:

Who exactly are the really stupid posters you have in mind?

Edit -- I can't believe they removed the word that begins with P and continues with a "U" and a double "S" and ends with "Y" from the above. Can we add this silly bit of censorship to Papa's forthcoming list of stupidity?

I console myself with the fact that the really stupid ones are just bitter queens who don't even live in New York.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.
