It's a trick played on children. Why cant parents just be honest and just buy their kid's tooth off them. They get a lesson in economics as well. To make money in this world you might lose a tooth or two.

I remember one time I got into a mean fist-fight. Each time I took a hammering the tooth-fairy sprinkled stars over my head and flashed lights in my third eye. When the ambulance came to get me it was revealed that the fairy lived in it. She gently collected my battered stumps of teeth, then brought me to the land of Karius and Bakktus. I could see a tunnel reaching downwards into some sort of abyss, some weird drop-shaped pendulum almost blocking it's dark slimy entrance.

As I looked up to the heavens above, I could see the fairy grinning peculiarly. She telepathically told me to start drilling, to make huge entrances into these white calcium blocks in front of me. That's when I knew she was a demon...

Swami, please choose between this two definitions.

Quote:


The Sophist Troll. Sophist Trolls, or "philotrolls," fancy themselves Enlightened Philosophers or Learned Experts of the highest order. Often well educated, Philotrolls are capable of speaking intelligently on a number of topics, and when the spirit moves them they can be worthwhile forum participants. Unfortunately, Sophist Trolls are an extremely hostile and intolerant species.

When confronted by opinions with which they do not agree -- particularly when they do not see any means of successfully arguing their contrary views -- Sophists resort (repeatedly) to a variety of intellectually dishonest tactics. Most often, this is characterized by an overly snide, condescending, patronizing attitude. Philotrolls consider anyone with whom they do not agree to be "immature," and are fond of quoting that old saw that "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing."

When cornered they are quick to resort to personal attacks. A philotroll's bag of rhetorical tricks includes a variety of transparent ploys, such as willfully misinterpreting the opponent's words, committing Straw Man fallacies, accusing his or her opponents of engaging in the very tactics used by the philotroll, and so forth.

When engaging in their sophistry, philotrolls are among the most hypocritical and aggravating of trollkind.





Quote:


The Contrarian Troll. A sophisticated breed, Contrarian Trolls frequent boards whose predominant opinions are contrary to their own. A forum dominated by those who support firearms and knife rights, for example, will invariably be visited by Contrarian Trolls espousing their beliefs in the benefits of gun control. It is important to distinguish between dissenters and actual Contrarian Trolls, however; the Contrarian is not categorized as a troll because of his or her dissenting opinions, but due to the manner in which he or she behaves:

-- Contrarian Warning Sign Number One: The most important indicator of a poster's Contrarian Troll status is his constant use of subtle and not-so-subtle insults, a technique intended to make people angry. Contrarians will resist the urge to be insulting at first, but as their post count increases, they become more and more abusive of those with whom they disagree. Most often they initiate the insults in the course of what has been a civil, if heated, debate to that point.

-- Contrarian Warning Sign Number Two: Constant references to the forum membership as monolithic. "You guys are all just [descriptor]." "You're a lynch mob." "You all just want to ridicule anyone who disagrees with you."

-- Contrarian Warning Sign Number Three: Intellectual dishonesty. This is only a mild indicator that is not limited to trolls, but Contrarians display it to a high degree. They will lie about things they've said, pull posts out of context in a manner that changes their meanings significantly, and generally ignore any points for which they have no ready answers.

-- Contrarian Warning Sign Number Four: Accusing the accusers. When confronted with their trolling, trolls immediately respond that it is the accusers who are trolls (see Natural Predators below). Often the Contrarian will single out his most vocal opponent and claim that while he can respect his other opponents, this one in particular is beneath his notice.

-- Contrarian Warning Sign Number Five: Attempts to condescend. Pursued by Troll Bashers (see Natural Predators below), the Contrarian will seek refuge in condescending remarks that repeatedly scorn his or her critics as beneath notice -- all the while continuing to respond to them.

-- Contrarian Warning Sign Number Six: One distinctive mark of Contrarian Trolls is that every thread in which they dissent quickly devolves into a debate about who is trolling whom. In the course of such a debate the Contrarian will display many of the other Warning Signs mentioned above.

Contrarian warning sign behaviors may be shared by other breeds.

""I am highly sensitive to having my expressed beliefs questioned or examined by others.""

then, how can you say that?
did you not notice (as you are highly sensitive) that they all do, whether you think so or not?

man.. this looks to me, like someone, being an asshole to a thread starter, only to try to justify it for one-self,...

I think you are pathetic.. but you are so much more than that! :heart:

Absense of evidence is not evidence of absense...

"Religion is a defense against a religious experience"
              Carl G. Jung

 
"So really, ordinary reality is a kind of chemical habit, sanctioned by culture, which says it's okay to use certain drugs, eat certain foods, and have certain sexual behaviors. However, when you transcend all this pre-conditioning by returning to the original wisdom of the animal body, then you discover this immense dimension of opportunity. For some people, it is a frightening risk. To me, that's the psychedelic experience."

In my case, when the wife is out of town, the 'tooth fairy' is a convenient ruse to fool the children into not thinking about who the strange woman is in my bedroom (should they happen to wake up in the middle of the night and walk in).

Is a moderator and is HIS job to step in when a user is obviously messing with a forum.

Trolling is frowned upon as much as flaming, you obviously are trying to start shit and now I'll have to take action.

Good job, your self control is outstanding.  :thumbup:

This thread has been closed.

Reason:
Sent to: Swami
Subject: Your Account has been Banned from the S&P Forum

Duration: 15 Days

Reason: Persistence in fueling the drama accompanying
your previous bans, specifically in S&P, by attempting to mock
the moderators of the forum with your thread re: "The Tooth Fairy"

Had this thread been made by a new user without your history,
it likely would be overlooked. In the context of recent events,
and being that the thread in question has little to do with
Spirituality or Philosophy but rather much more to do with
testing the the rules, guidelines, and politics of this community
- the thread is inappropriate, has been locked, and you will
not be welcome in the S&P forum until you understand that
this is precisely the type of behavior we are looking to avoid.
