So it is my fault that people insult me, because it is my responsibilty to interpret peope's words as they intended ?

But the people insulting me have no responsibility to interpret my words as I intended?

that's an egregious double standard.

When I said 'troll', i meant that I posted something that I didn't necessarily believe, but that had been represented in other places by other people as a possibility. On this very site, no less, by several people. It was a theory that I knew IamredBeard wouldn't like.

It wasn't irrelevant, it wasn't rude, it wasn't hurtful, and it was only inflamatory because IamRedBear is so unstable and prone to insulting me at every opportunity.

Perhaps you need to stop and think about that for a little bit.

There was already no debate to be hurt.

IamRedBeard has decided that he never has to do anything but insult me, and somehow no one is taking him up on that.

I did not say that, but you may surely believe I said that. Reading Comprehension is a thing, a responsibility? I'm not sure, but I can point out errors in arithmetic, so why not in reading comprehension?

I clearly stated I only read your 'I trolled you' confession and that I reacted to that... That's where you started defending your trolling and me condemning trolling overall.

and somehow no one is taking him up on that.

Maybe you should have done that instead of trolling?

you said:

It's not my fault that somehow you manage to flip things over to personal attacks on you instead of reading and understanding comments the way they are supposed to

Ah. I misunderstood. I thought when you said "flip", you were talking about other people going from debate to say things like "don't be retarded", or <insert any of IARB's endless personal insults> was the 'flip', and was my fault, but instead you are saying that people straight up insulting me is just ok and i'm apparently reading it wrong when I take it as insulting. Right?

It is about time you corrected that oversight, since you are attacking me with very little understanding of the overall situation.

Its a bit like blaming the victim, for striking out after being beaten up.

Ah. I misunderstood.

Yes and yet again you spin my words into a narrative that places you as some sort of victim instead of comprehending what I mean.

So you weren't confessing to trolling? And now I'm attacking you?

Its a bit like blaming the victim, for striking out after being beaten up.

Hey, it's not hard to understand what I meant, you keep misinterpreting my words to spin some sort of victim narrative; cool.

So let's leave the arguing about when insults are not really insults, since I can tell that you want to consider yourself above that.

How about the second part of what I wrote? The bit where you inform yourself.

Why? If you have problems with that guy You have your ways to do something about it. I had/have a problem with trolling and I addressed it.

Why?

Because you don't understand the situation and as a result you are uninformed and ignorant.

You want to drag in your other drama into my statement, and the escalated failing to grasp my message of "trolling is not encouraged".
