I'll also go with the deliberate hypotheses.

If I lived next door to someone who hates cats visiting their garden, and who didn't have a cat but seemed to leave containers of water out for them , I'd be mighty interested in the what and the why if cats closeby started dying after ingesting antifreeze.

Best way to keep cats out of your garden is to leave a dog in it.  You still have to scoop da poop but at least a dog doesn't hide it next to your radishes :)

Funnily enough Geoff, I've found that the best way not to have someone else's cat in the garden is to have one of your own.  Our dogs have never stopped neighbours cats from spending the day with us. Or is that because we wouldn't allow the dogs to 'see 'em off' (said as one word).
Oi! Listen mush. Old eyes, remember? I’ve been around the block a few times. More than a few. They’ve knocked down the blocks I’ve been around and rebuilt them as bigger blocks. Super blocks. And I’ve been round them as well.  The Doctor (Night Terrors)

Right then. ChannelX has been banned (under that alias at least) frankly because I'm sick of the constant tedious arguments. As a word of warning to the rest of you, don't get drawn into exchanges like those above. Debate by all means but do so with courtesy please.


All the more entertaining because the troll was claiming moral high ground, superior intellect, and impunity to virtually everyone else on the thread  :fence:

About time too :)

He's a good example of why I tend to shoot trolls before they get fully into their stride. Funnily enough, the very worst trolls I've known often seem to have a commercial interest in the www.  I've always wondered if owning/running a www business tends to endow them with a sense of ownership of the www, and therefore feel entitled to behave like twats.

Well I have read that ASD tends to be more prevalent in the IT industry than in the population as a whole, whether that's true or not I don't know.

However, trolls do exhibit some classic signs of ASD or sociopathic disorders like a lack of empathy.  One group can't understand why their actions might be hurtful (and struggle with the concept that people might disagree with them) and with the other they don't care what damage they do to have a laugh or further their cause.

Sent these links to the new Adver web editor who unwittingly confirmed who the troll is.

Be interesting to see if anything happens.

Certainly going to be a classic case of "what's good for the goose is good for the ICDT"

If nothing else, it's raised the viewing figures of Talk Swindon
