What sorta Holy Troller Are You?
« on: October 21, 2013, 03:44:05 PM »
To the recent board discussion:

Quote
When I first started writing about religion for an online news site, I eagerly turned to the comment section for my articles, fishing for compliments and wondering if I had provoked any thoughtful discussions about faith.
I don’t wonder anymore.
When I look at the comment section now, I see a whole lot of “yo mamas” being tossed about. Readers exchange juvenile insults, condescending lectures and veer off into tangents that have nothing to do with the article they just read.

Quote
You might even recognize yourself.
The Street Corner Prophet
The Provoker
The Atheist
The Scholar
The Peacemaker
What kind of holy troller will you be?

I do think it is safest to self diagnose rather than diagnose others on the forum.

Is that an accusation of a failure to troll well? :P

Honestly, I'm not willing to put the time in or make the mental effort to seriously troll here.

But if you could tell that I fantasize about doing so, then major props to you! Even the heavyweights here haven't been able to catch on.

Dude we must talk about most epic trolling ever.

I would swear I was witness to some of the greatest trolling ever. To divulge what happen in content alone would out so much about my online past that Achronos would never harbor lustful feelings ever again.

Well you had GiC and that Enechustungproblem. I'm not sure who else, oh and my socket puppet back in the day.

GiC was a good foil I thought. Then you had real lunatics like that Jackel fellow who had nothing come out of his mouth but gibberish. You should have seen him compare Christianity to some sort of sun god (not Horus) and used volcanos, or supposedly St Paul referenced volcanos and Christ's head was a real sun moving around in Jerusalem.

I mean I thought it was a parody or something, but he was 100% serious. Talk about a gold medal gymnist.

And BTW Will, don't be fooled by the sort of presence of online atheism reflecting outside in the world. Only the internet will people listen to them.

True, I wonder why that is.  Maybe because the pat responses don't work well here as we aren't sola scriptura and Orthodox doctrine is lesser known and therefore harder to argue against.

I was going with the Scholar, but then I realized that I had to look up who Friedrich Hayek was (from Arachne's link), so I don't think that fits.  :-[

Where's the one where you post here to avoid doing real work?

Nevermind. On second thought, that's just "poster".

I'm a poster.

I generally find that the old Flame Warriors are still quite applicable, so...

I am too lazy to read through all of them.  Does someone want to tell me what sort of flame warrior Vamrat is?  I will be more than happy to report you to the mods afterwards for ad hominems and then make a thinly veiled post about you in the rudeness thread.

Not to mention they are about as entertaining and specific as the daily horoscope.

Plus it calls Peter Singer a "person of good will."
