Hey have you ever been on a forum and wonder, why is everyone listening to this guy who is obviously retarded? I do not use these tactics but many DO use them and i expect to get flammed pretty hard for posting this up as many people will see so much of their selves in this.

Religion- atheists- paraphrase richard dawkins/zeitgeist and/or quote Dawkins/zeitgeist. You can also make cookie cutter statements like "all religions are cults" "God is no more real than the easter bunny".

Christians- Just point out that Stalin killed WAY more than Hitler and that atheists leaders have gone on killing sprees in their own countries and that atheisim is very importiant in a communist regime. Say that science only deals with the physical universe and natural things, so anything super natural or not physical is outside the realm of science. Ask any married atheist to tell his/her spouse that he does not love him/her because it is unscientific and that the atheist feeling of love is no more real than your feeling for god. Or that science can't prove the scientific method itself. Rights- Just copy pasta stuff from the constitution and keep saying things like "i weep for my country" "let freedom ring" "people are so narrow minded".

Politics- This one is easy just bash the current president. If he is republican he is trying to make a police state and if he is democrat he is trying to take your guns.

Abortion- Just go with the winning side Pro-life- Call it murder and say the fetus has a heart beat which means it is living, agree that mothers can get abortions if delivering the child will kill the mother in the process. Pro-choice- Just say that it has not been proven that a fetus is sentient and at the time of a LEGAL abortion the "baby" is not a mini baby but reather a clump of cells with no mind and unaware of its self.

When dealing with opposition to make yourself look 9,000x smarter than you are just put fancy labels on everything to get away from the argument. People think labeling and explaining things is a way to win a debate.

person A- Look at this cool photo i took person B(noob version)- nice photo (no rep gained)

Person b (PRO)- I noticed that this was taken with a medium quality digital cammera and your use of back lighting. The camera seems to have a horizontal 37 degree angle of view. You are not a professional this is amateurism at it's best, all you did here was capture the subject with the maximum aperture and and messed with the color temerature in photo shop. The colors in this photo are set up so that it stimulates my limbic system thus stimulating my septum pellucidum. If you do not find pleasure in photographs like this you may have septo-optic dysplasia. See i could go on and on like that but notice how i did not say anything one way or another i just made some long post about nothing, it was just pedantic rant but people will think you are OMG SO SMART for doing that. Pro tips: Use a thesaurus - Why say friendly when you can say gregarious or convivia Agree Agree Agree- always 1/2 way agree with whoever opposes you, I do not know why this works but it does. Please note that this never goes over well if you do this as an atheist. So if you are an atheist skip this tip as it will only get you flammed by both sides. Example: C- I think killing animals for fun should be legal You- I understand why you would find pleasure in killing animals and i could even entertain the idea that it might be stress relieving, but animal cruelty is in violation of penal code 234. killing animals for funs is a warning signs psychopathologies, like anti-social personality disorder. See all you did there is 1/2 way agree and label things. you did not even really say anything but people will love you for it because you did not say what everyone else wants to say. You took the "high road" and pretty much said nothing at all. Do Not use Wikipedia- Wiki is retarded, if someone else is using it against you you can just change the wikipedia article to support your view. Fallacies- Try to learn them all. They mostly have latin names so people think you are oh so smart.

Alright, I'll bite and comment on the list that explains you how to post like a pro (failure).

Young Stalin;4920927Hey have you ever been on a forum and wonder, why is everyone listening to this guy who is obviously retarded? I do not use these tactics but many DO use them and i expect to get flammed pretty hard for posting this up as many people will see so much of their selves in this.

No? The places I go to usually do a pretty good job at filtering out and ignoring the retards.

Religion- atheists- paraphrase richard dawkins/zeitgeist and/or quote Dawkins/zeitgeist. You can also make cookie cutter statements like "all religions are cults" "God is no more real than the easter bunny".

Those must be some seriously low class debates. A simple one liner can get your view across quite clearly but it's rarely a valid argument that "proofs" your point.

Christians- Just point out that Stalin killed WAY more than Hitler and that atheists leaders have gone on killing sprees in their own countries and that atheisim is very importiant in a communist regime. Say that science only deals with the physical universe and natural things, so anything super natural or not physical is outside the realm of science. Ask any married atheist to tell his/her spouse that he does not love him/her because it is unscientific and that the atheist feeling of love is no more real than your feeling for god. Or that science can't prove the scientific method itself.

And get laughed at when people ask you what the bloody hell a dictator of a Stalinist regime has to do with religion or why there is a god and such? Or they may respond with pulling a card of various dictators, evil-doers, events like the crusades and the like to counter the argument with equal sillyness.

Rights- Just copy pasta stuff from the constitution and keep saying things like "i weep for my country" "let freedom ring" "people are so narrow minded".

See above. A simple one liner can get your view across quite clearly but it's rarely a valid argument that "proofs" your point.

Politics- This one is easy just bash the current president. If he is republican he is trying to make a police state and if he is democrat he is trying to take your guns.

It must be quite boring to auto-bash the current president. And once more people probably want to here more arguments then a silly one liner "He's taking me guns away!" or "he's a nazi!" or whatever.

Abortion- Just go with the winning side

Too bad there is no "winning" side. Debates are about sharing views, exchanging difference. Rarely (never) does one side convince the other that they are right and therefor there is no "winner". Their may be particular individuals who write well informed, detailed and fair posts and those people may have whatever view on the subject or other subjects.

Pro-life- Call it murder and say the fetus has a heart beat which means it is living, agree that mothers can get abortions if delivering the child will kill the mother in the process.

That's one more of those one liners, hardly enough to be taken seriously.

Pro-choice- Just say that it has not been proven that a fetus is sentient and at the time of a LEGAL abortion the "baby" is not a mini baby but reather a clump of cells with no mind and unaware of its self.

As above.

When dealing with opposition to make yourself look 9,000x smarter than you are just put fancy labels on everything to get away from the argument. People think labeling and explaining things is a way to win a debate.

person A- Look at this cool photo i took person B(noob version)- nice photo (no rep gained)

Person b (PRO)- I noticed that this was taken with a medium quality digital cammera and your use of back lighting. The camera seems to have a horizontal 37 degree angle of view. You are not a professional this is amateurism at it's best, all you did here was capture the subject with the maximum aperture and and messed with the color temerature in photo shop. The colors in this photo are set up so that it stimulates my limbic system thus stimulating my septum pellucidum. If you do not find pleasure in photographs like this you may have septo-optic dysplasia. See i could go on and on like that but notice how i did not say anything one way or another i just made some long post about nothing, it was just pedantic rant but people will think you are OMG SO SMART for doing that.

If you throw in words for the sake of sounding fancy while not bringing across any factual point or strong argument people will know you're talking out of your ass. You may try to cover it with a smell of roses but it's still comming out of your ass. Fail.

Pro tips: Use a thesaurus - Why say friendly when you can say gregarious or convivia

If you can use some fancy words to spice up your valid, strong arguments and points it may help. Certainly if those words can explain what otherwise would take a whole paragraph. But again just fancy words alone won't help.

Agree Agree Agree- always 1/2 way agree with whoever opposes you, I do not know why this works but it does. Please note that this never goes over well if you do this as an atheist. So if you are an atheist skip this tip as it will only get you flammed by both sides. Example: C- I think killing animals for fun should be legal You- I understand why you would find pleasure in killing animals and i could even entertain the idea that it might be stress relieving, but animal cruelty is in violation of penal code 234. killing animals for funs is a warning signs psychopathologies, like anti-social personality disorder. See all you did there is 1/2 way agree and label things. you did not even really say anything but people will love you for it because you did not say what everyone else wants to say. You took the "high road" and pretty much said nothing at all.

I hope you do know there are often more then two sides, debates are not black and white. There are many many views on topics. Ranging from one extreme few to the other. Just as with politics, where there are many parties from the far left to far right all with their own views.

Do Not use Wikipedia- Wiki is retarded, if someone else is using it against you you can just change the wikipedia article to support your view.

Wikipedia is a great source at the very beginning to explore a bit and gain some general info. But to go indepth and be sure of factual information you almost always need to reach for various other sources that are available to you.

Fallacies- Try to learn them all. They mostly have latin names so people think you are oh so smart.

:lol:

I guess these tips work great when you're around kids of 12-14 years where they can go "ohhh look at that big man with his big words, wow!" but otherwise... epic failure lays ahead. :rofl:

My tip: Just post what you think and have fun.

Oh i should have added: When in doubt- just say fail or point out typos. however point out real typos don't make one up to "proofs" your point.

Surely this breaks some sort of Filefront rule?

Pro-life- Call it murder and say the fetus has a heart beat which means it is living, agree that mothers can get abortions if delivering the child will kill the mother in the process.

Just so you know, the heart only starts beating at day 18. it doesn't actually look anything like an adult heart till about day 30 - up until then it sort of resembles the heart of a fish.
