You don't have a country to speak of (quite literally) as you're ashamed of it.

Now name calling won't get you anywhere as that doesn't win arguments. Let's see, misspelled automatic. Your country sends over bullies such as you to tonguelash others on this site. Supports despotic regimes and ISIS. And outright makes up baldface lies without shame.

I would take my country over your hidden country anytime if you're their best representative.

I didn't use the word 'automatic' anywhere in my comment. And it's 'misspelt' by the way. Tongue lash is two words.'Baldface' is 'baldfaced'. Find a post where I have ever supported ISIS or any 'despotic regimes'.
Then what word is this: "automatonic"? Misspelled is perfectly fine. Baldface is perfectly fine. Find a post where you ever supported the US.

I don't have to find anything. You are the one making moronic assertions. And what exactly do you mean by 'supported the US' anyway? Am I obliged to?

I took it to mean behaving in the fashion of an automaton.

I found all the good words in my dictionary except for your misspelled "automatonic." "... moronic assertions." :lol: Look who's talking. Yes you're obliged to if you don't want to give the appearance of being prejudiced.

Are you suggesting I'm 'psychologically bullying' poor helpless Doc and 'profoundly damaging' him? Actually what he does far more closely resembles bullying than anything I say. If you were not so biased you would see that.

Bullying involves repeated behaviours and a power imbalance as perceived by the bullies and their marks. One-off behaviours or arguments between peers come under the heading of harassment, not bullying. The difference is similar to that between normal sadness and clinical depression - one is incidental and the other is chronic.

So called bullying, of a verbal nature, is only ever bullying, when there is a threat of physical violence. Otherwise it's just heated debate!
I disagree.

Psychological bullying can be profoundly damaging. It warps perception of reality.

The thought literally never crossed my mind.

You couldn't psychologically bully your way out of a wet paper bag.

Would it make a difference if I cared what VT posted about me?

BTW, the only reason I don't have VT on ignore is that I find amusing the vitriol and venom she posts about america, It's amusing how wrong someone can be who doesn't know anything about America.

Yet you have never disagreed with anything I have said about your country or posted anything to show that I am wrong. Very peculiar.

I really don't think empathy rather than sympathy should be the emotional response to such a person. As why would one wish to take on-board such feelings?
Did I say I get all my information from social media? I absorb it from all kinds of places. Are you suggesting that because something happens on FB or Twitter or any other social media then it's not real?
No, I'm suggesting that SM effectively allows people to only hear the information they wish to. This is especially true with FB as since they implemented their targeted/tailored advertising algorithm upon peoples walls they effectively only hears views that the algorithm thinks they will like. It was different before as the wall just sequentially posted whatever one's friends or FofF(depending upon your settings) posted so you would hear views you may not agree with but now that is pretty much not the case.
Bah. I'm sick of repeating myself to you. You argue for the sake of arguing and that's tiresome.
Sorry it comes across that way as I try to discuss for the sake of clarity for myself and that I disagree with what the other may be saying.

Committing suicide means the person was insane? What are you basing that on? And where did YOU go to find the 'information you wish'? You seem to know a lot more about Facebook than I do.

On the idea that they weren't in a sane state of mind. I can think of a few situations where suicide might well be a viable option but in general if you live in the western world I think it a faintly ridiculous response to one's situation as you can just walk away or see a shrink.
And where did YOU go to find the 'information you wish'? ...
In the specific, books. In the general, BBC R4, Share Radio, the FT, the Times, the Grauniad, Bloomberg News, the BBC, the Evening Standard, RT News, Al Jazeera. There's a few others. And I trawl about some of the more unsavory sites far-left and far-right just to get a gist of the zeitgeist.

Not through much use but through being in IT for much of my life.

No idea what you are talking about here. Do you mean things like PCSJW?
