I also love it when someone posts some sort of off the wall conspiracy theory and then accuses everyone who dissagrees with him of being "ignorant" or "blind" or "sheep" or other such pejoratives that imply that anyone who is capable of independent thought would automatically agree with the points raised in the original post and the only reason that you don't agree is because you're stupid or a slave to the system etc.

edited to add:

There are people who use the same tactic concerning political issues - e.g. If you're don't agree with my view, you must be mentally defective and/or in the bag for your side.

edited again to add:

This also applies to posts concerning religious issues - e.g. I'm a Christian so everyone else MUST believe/see the issue as I do, else they're an idiot.

You're not a closet liberal, are you?

I like the recent one where the poster is on a thread about a recent poofee, argueing over something that was said in the poofed thread, and asks for a cite.

Or, on the same thread, people are lining up to state they didn't push the button on the poofee . . . this time.

But one of my favorites is people repeating points scored, pounding their chests and whiffing the sweet vapors of victory when, knowing full well, the object of their infection isn't there to defend himself.

Who could forget the old time zone ambush. Like right now for instance, you and the dog likely (assumming someone has a dog is another tactic) are having a snoring contest and I just started my thind cup of java . . . And seeing as I'm a likely target who is vulnerable to being painted with the lib tag ( just ask my neighbor with the McCain/Palin bumper sticker, reversed so Palin's name is first) . . . sort of like a cat in a litter box, I could just thrash around in this thread for a few hours, relatively unhindered.

No?
Figured. :D

(Mocking a posters know arch-rival in an attempt to draw them in as backup, knowing they are closer to your own time zone, is another one of note.)

Yea, you have to be careful with Aussies, they're hard to get a fix on, timewise and otherwise. A good rule of thumb is to keep in mind they're way ahead of us, sometimes in more ways than one. Depending on where you are in the US, and where they are in Oz, if its midnight here on Friday, it's already Saturday afternoon over there. 14 hours from east coast US to Sydney last time I checked.

there ain't no rules. But this is a small place in cyberspace. It's all good in the hood. During my latest ban I had the pleasure of observing a little progressive hate club of bilgers on facebook. So I jumped in and Pat Ford whined bout wanting 'some of the posts pruned'. Of course I removed my posts but invited him to call his 'backer' by all means. Such never occurred _sigh_ So I have to come back here to get abused by them what can't hold their own in the wild open. It's a labor of love. I regret that I have but one lifetime ban to give for my country. God Bless America..

Pat Ford is Ok as long as you do not ask him for past issues of WBF if your a republican..

Much like doing a variation of the "twist" while dancing to any kind of music no matter how old you are a popular Bilge tactic is to assault another Forum member in another thread no matter how disconnected it appears., If you have a grudge this is a good way to "even" the score, Bonus points if your adversary never sees it and has a chance to defend himself

Here is a Excellent Example. Note how Doug knows what Donn thinks he is or is not but leaves the casual observer the idea that Donn is incapable of a trade and is Mentally unable to know this.
