[...]  I still can't figure out why people hate Libman so much.  [...]

I used to be regarded pretty well when I first started here - or it could have been my $100/month AMP that I canceled after ~7 month due to disenchantment with the FSP, but mostly due to my own personal depression.  That created some enemies, as did my mood swings where I would occasionally delete my account here, as part of a "bonfire of the vanities" to try to force myself not to think about philosophy or politics, but I always inevitably come back anyway.  Some occasional instances of alcoholism didn't help.  My political opinions are also very unpopular: I don't like pot activism, I've spoken out for legalization of "kiddy porn" as a free speech issue, etc.  And then I've gone completely insane.

Are you trying to bullshit poor Lance, or is this some sort of bizarre Tyler Durdenesque fantasy that you actually believe?

People don't like you because you're an attention whore, a drama queen, and just plain fucking annoying. Not because of any iconoclastic opinions you hold or whatever other noble bullshit you tell yourself.

I am the worst piece of shit in the universe.

My perpetual failure to kill myself is a crime against humanity.

Acceptance is a fuzzy calculation.  You have to decide if their issues, habits, quirks, and behaviors outweigh their core.  Maybe their core is fucked, and none of the rest matters.  Maybe their core is decent, and their surrounding details are minor.  Maybe their core is very good, but the rest of their shit is overwhelming.  

In this case, I think a lot of issues are pushing into the red zone, and it triggers the circuit breakers on most peoples calculations.  Their decisions are made for them, based on the process of defensive mechanisms and fight-or-flight.  The person exhibits traits that are unattractive, and they obscure or wholly negate the positive attributes of the person.

There may be little or no IRL danger to speak of, but the dynamics here are different.  Much of the goal here is simple enjoyment, which the subconscious views as "life" in the online environment.  Threat to enjoyment is perceived as a threat to "life", and therefore the defensive mechanisms become valid, and avoidance is the first line of defense.

I've spoken in favor of Libman before, and I'll do it again now.

What's the harm in reading someone's opinions that you might not agree with?

I dunno.. I don't have a real problem with any opinion coming from anyone. Ignoring opinions ain't gonna wipe them from existence, so ya might as well stick with reality and hear what everyone has to say.

It has little to do with opinions.

You mean because he may be annoying or a butt pain?

Maybe I'm slow or haven't participated in key discussions, I dunno.. I just don't see the big deal.

Ya.

Always with the stupid, attention whore violence.  If I didn't know he was smart in some respects, I'd think he was a twelve year old with tourettes.

How often do people start bitching about how the forum isn't as good as it used to be?

There's some pretty good stuff in the annals of this forum.  A lot of anals too, actually, which is not quite as good.
