I gave up reading through this 3 pages ago, was there progress or does my theory remain true?

Also I've been drinking lots of whiskey for the past 6 hours. I'm surprised I haven't passed out.

So how many people have to dislike the noisy rider? 2? 5?  You're assuming that because it doesn't belong to one person, that it's okay to act however you want in it.  
This is why park restrooms are what they are.
You're comparing text to noise. Text is less invasive as it requires you to actually READ IT in order
for you to be offended. In theory text is a passive aggressive form of noise, it's not like listening to
Hanson or watching a Twilight movie, it's more like reading the Twilight novels, which aren't actively
offensive because as I said... they're text! It's much easier to ignore stuff that's in text form. My point
is that it's an unfair comparison.

Please, if I am being unreasonable, let me know.

I'm sorry, Marty, like I said I meandered off a few pages ago. That was totally a squirrel and I can appreciate the effort put in to that.

That's why I wish this board had a lot of the options other boards do, like ignore lists and unsubscribe/don't follow.  Would make it easier to ignore inflammatory posts.

To go more with the bus analogy, sure it's possible to ignore loud or obnoxious people, you pretty much have to, but if someone starts saying stuff like "everyone that does such and such should be killed", people are going to get uncomfortable and ask the driver to do something about it.

You're correct that text is easier to ignore than words, but if the guy on the bus held up a sign saying the same stuff as above the result would be the same.

Well, in any case I think I've more then made my point sickeningly and abundantly clear over the
past 20 or so pages so it's about time for me to stop. I just hope if and when he comes back he
doesn't make me look bad for defending him.

If history is any indicator, you're putting your eggs in a very flimsy basket.

If the previous pattern holds (many times) he will act like nothing happened until something else sets him off.

At least he seems to be able to say he has some problem, sometimes, but only immediately after he's had a blow up.   But later on acting like it never happened there's no way to get better.  The mind can play some nasty tricks, that's what makes fixing it so hard sometimes.
