Nah, you don't. He was one of the worst posters, period. At least for sporting events.

Picture someone with absolutely no self perception. Then think about that someone to the 100th power. That's a poor man's Thremp.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Does Phildo still post? Take him up a couple of degrees, add some insanity, and you have Thremp. Thremp's best work never really happened in SE anyways, arguments don't get taken seriously enough here

Thremp was worth it like 5% of the time - especially when he wouldn't let an argument go and he was right. The rest he was just getting in weird fights all the time.

Lol I didn't get owned. I had a massive reply typed out but it made me look like a dick and i didnt want to get involved so I deleted it.

Timotheeeee and i talked privately and i had just assumed he knew facts which I now know he wasn't aware of. I'd bet a lot of money if I had it on there being an almost zero chance of a successful lawsuit. I say almost zero only because of an internal filter against absolutes. The procedural matters alone are a near absolute barrier to any cost effective litigation.

Like one replier said if this were actually some sort of easy case even assuming Thremp was fos then every lawyer in America would have plenty of work.

Thremp and Phildo likely ****ed each other in the ass from what I read of them.

The problem though is he was wrong all the time. And he still wouldn't let it go. See: Any interaction with El Diablo. He thought the more he word bombed, the righter he would be. It made for brutal reading 98%+ of the time.

Karak,

Calling someone a crook or a con artist is defamatory. The problem is almost always that the damages are minimal, especially when the potential defendant is some crank with a blog that no one reads.

No, he was usually right. He was just a massive jerkoff sometimes.

But the times he was wrong were amazing.

I understand that he dominated the H&F forum, so, he was probably right in those arguments. But my 2+2 "world", for the scope of this discussion (and, SE FAQ liveblog!) is and was Sporting Events. And whenever he crossed paths here, he was wrong, and he was a major dickoff about it.

That's all I have to say on the matter I guess.

Right I was being a dick. I was saying the thought of this specific guy accomplishing any sort of worthy or successful lawsuit in this specific situation is laughable (which it is).

Timotheeeee s post merely said he would win if thremp was lying which I wouldn't necessarily disagree with. I simply read it as he would have a worthwhile case that's even possible procedurally knowing the facts as I do, which was obv just me being a dick and putting words in his mouth.

that's why you should have restricted your responses to "lol at the defamation talk" as I did.

"Or is eating just a means to an end and this is compensated by the pleasure you receive in gazing at your protruding groin veins?" is definitely one of my all time favorite 2+2 comments.
