I may not agree with the guy on a lot of things. But sticking to his rules is pretty impressive. Annoying but impressive.
stubborn people impress you?

I respect the fact he sticks to his beliefs no matter how many posters disagree with him.
sticking to your guns is one thing. sticking to your guns while having your stance proven wrong from every angle imaginable and still believing it is being blockheaded.

btw, are you doing personal advocacy now, or are you doing your henry clay, the great compromiser bit again?

Sure. I mean it’s a public forum. I can see if we were paying members.

If it’s such a concern. Take it up with VC and see if he’ll allow moderators if this type of stuff bothers you so much. It’s easy to just ignore such post like Tidals, but posters here choose to engage. Reap what you sow in a sense.

It’s a public forum. Emphasis on public as well.
It happens.

..youre guilty of exhibiting the same behavior as covidian zombies believing all of the propaganda and vax brainwashing from MSM when it comes to the official version of 9/11. you believe it only because it is more comfortable for you.

You gotta be kidding us boy, you must have missed all my anti-vax posts.. :p
As for 9/11, Al-Qaeda ADMITTED doing it and that's good enough for me to point the finger at them..:)

But you had your vax, didn't you?
Like the good law abiding citizen that you are.
I expect you are reporting the anti vaxers to the authorities. I know you like doing that sort of thing

Al-Qaeda didn't do 9-11
I did.
Prove I didn't.

FWIW, I have him on ignore because I find he's too ignorant and has basically derailed every thread. Still, it disrupts and the continuity of the thread, much like others who were on here doing the same thing. Not to mention, his nonsense adds nothing to them.

While you call it impressive that he's sticking to his guns, I call it, much like polymoog did, narrow-minded, and bullheaded. Two phrases come to mind: "“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” and " Repeating something or saying it louder, does not make it true." If he was one of the learners at the centre I tutor at, I can just hear the literacy coordinator now saying, "...okay, we'll try this with him and see if he understands this. If not, then I'll have a talk with him and ask if he really wants to be part of the program".

For the most part, we're all on this public forum to share information and learn from one another. He's doing neither.

Others can flip-flop if they like, but not me.. :p

Yeah, you're going to acid attack women and animals, and nothing will change your mind.

Gotta just ignore it.
Unless there is some type of moderation on here, we’re always going to get bad apples mixed into the bunch.

What I find impressive and this was also for Lisa is no matter how many posters ganged up on her, she held by her outlook. I see the same happening to Tidal. Are they ignorant? Sure. I’ve made it pretty clear on this forum, I try to see both sides before jumping to a conclusion.

I have no control over other posters actions. VC doesn’t really moderate in control freak type of way cause he trust us.

If you guys feel posters like Tidal are doing harm. Start a thread. Voice your opinions. You, polymoog, Awoken are all respected posters, I’m sure VC will hear you guys out

Yes, there's the ignore function, but as I've stated, it disrupts the continuity of the threads. In lieu of moderators, VC has the report function, however, to date, that doesn't seem to be doing anything. Much like Lisa, people are getting fed up of telling them the same thing over and over again and not having the common sense to take heed to any of it.

I'm sure I can call VC's attention to it by posting his name using the "@" symbol, however, I'm of the mindset that most of us are adults and know how to act accordingly. I could be wrong as this has been going on for quite some time.

Don’t bother. It’ll be an endless argument not worth getting frustrated over.
Tidal, on this forum here, told everyone how he goes armed with a corrosive substance, with the intention of spraying it into the faces of women who displeased him.

This is a direct threat, and an admission of going prepared to do violent attacks against women.

It should not be allowed to pass with the excuse that 'oh, its just Tidal. The saddo from loser lane'.
Fred West was 'oh, its just Fred, he's a bit of a weirdo, but he is harmless really'.

This is how violence against women continues, because the threats are just brushed under the carpet as 'men being men', until its too late.

The truth is that right now I am conflicted.
Should I call the police and tell them that there is a man admitting that he goes out armed with acid to attack women with, or should I just be quiet because 'men will be men'?

I have seen on here today a horrifying threat against women, following on from a whole list of sexist comments from Tidal.
All the signs are there.

If he does attack and blind someone,will be culpable for remaining silent?

Right now I don't want to alert the authorities, and I will not remain silent while threats and admissions like those are made.
So i am challenging him here.
It is a compromise.

What would you do if you heard someone went out armed with acid to spray in the faces of women who upset him?

Report him.
He’s trolling. If all you guys report him to VC then maybe he gets banned.

Idk if his threats are for real in the real world. If true then he can be held liable for threats

It does, but it’s on a lot of forums. Not just here. That is the reality and territory of online forums. There will always be annoying people. How we choose to handle them is up to us.

You can let it frustrate you or you can look past it. If it truly is bothersome. There are enough of you guys to report him to get him banned or limited.

And it has gone on for a long time. I realized after the whole chass debacle a few years ago. I have no control over others actions. Some posters are adults and engage beneficially, some no matter what will throw a wrench in the machine.

Banned?
But he is kind of amusing sometimes.

Real world threats...
I don't doubt that Tidal does have the spray he showed, and that he has carried around with him.
But I don't think he actually wants to hurt anyone for real. However he could easily do so by accident though not realising how acidic vinegar is.
He could also cause himself big problems if he should use it, or even carry it, as the police would view it as a premeditated acid attack.

And by telling us here, he has made all of us complicit.

Well. Sounds like you’re finding comic relief. Just let him be. At best ignore/don’t engage. Pretty easy to do on a forum
