"Troll" - another word with a different definition in biz's dictionary.  I forgot about that one.

No, I'm using the common definition and that says I'm not a "troll".

Why?

Because I'm not trying to get emotional responses nor am I trying to take a subject off-topic. The debate (if it can even be called that) here IS on topic, and I'm only defending my point of view, which I have every right to.

And MikeT23, it appears you already know the flaws in the arguments these people are making. Great. For the sake of others, I have reminded them.

The topic of DOMA and Prop 8?

You ARE trying to get an emotional response by constantly calling out other people's ability to argue and think critically, and failing to even attempt to understand someone else's point of view.

I've been working on anti-brevity.

The topic of DOMA relates to homosexual marriage, which logically leads to a discussion of sexuality itself.

I point out the inability to argue because I'm sick of the logical fallacies people keep trying to use. Try making a real argument instead of doing that, and then I wont' be able to call it out for what it is.

I understand your point of view, but I disagree with it because it's not a logical one. I have every right to disagree or believe you're not being logical. None of it is designed to get anyone to be emotional.

The humor of your little graphic aside, tecwrg, the point is a valid one, especially when it comes to any attempt to argue in a debate.

I also forgot to add constantly talking about your "debate skills."  Also trolling.

No, it's not, at least according to the commonly accepted definition of trolling.

I'm just telling it like it is. You don't want me doing that because it's a truth you want to avoid facing, so you'll insist it must be "trolling" even though the definition says otherwise.

Basically, you're trying to censor the truth in what I'm saying by calling me a "troll".

Telling the truth isn't "trolling", burnsy.

Bis should get some credit, he's been able to keep the troll bit up for a long time. How many pages did he burn through on the young earth, Tom Brady, and now gays. I wouldn't be surprised if it's over 200.

Defending your own opinion isn't "trolling" either.

Or is everyone in this thread a "troll", including you, BL?

Let's not forget his soliloquy on the merits of socialism, and why it's still the best economic system ever despite all the times it's failed.

True. Which is what really makes me think he's a troll. He started off trying to bait the more conservative guys on here with the socialism stuff. When that ran out of gas quickly he changed gears.

Not quite.  He changed gears after he claimed VICTORY because nobody could challenge his awesome debating and arguing skills.

How is saying that you're a "master debater" and saying that nobody knows how to use logic except you and declaring victory in your argument NOT trying to get an emotional response and swaying off topic?
