The existence of God is not subjective...

Well over a year ago, I felt sorry for him and "friended" him, after which, he began discussing this grand plan he had for bringing peace and goodwill to all mankind, and it seemed to hinge on the golden rule. I saw an influence in some of the things you said - not that you couldn't have come up with the same concepts independently, stranger things have happened.

"Like when you like ice-cream and I like ice cream too, we share an interest.
There's nothing strange about that arche..."

Until you start trying to persuade others to prefer the same flavor the two of you do.

Ah, so in other words, "friendly" persuasion.

Not to change the subject, but to change the subject, it just turned Spring down there, did you have a bad winter? It's 90 degrees F. here today.

BTW, do you know how to embed video? It's simple, I could teach you --

Comment by archaeopteryx on September 25, 2013 at 5:17pm

Since you asked so nicely --

Let's take the Panda video for example, g to YouTube and find it. Under the screen, you will find, "About," "Share," and "Add To," as well as a couple of other symbols which are irrelevant to this. Click on, "Share," and you will get an on-page drop-down (now you see it, previously, you didn't), where you will see, "Share This Video," "Embed," and "Email." Click on "Embed," and you will get yet another drop-down, rectangular box with a bunch of funny letters, symbols and numbers in it, this is HTML (Hyper-Text Markup Language) that tells TA's server what to do - you will note that it is already pre-highlighted for you, all you have to do is copy it - if you're using a Mac, as I am, hold down the Command key with your thumb and tap the "c" key, and you're done.

Then bring it to the comment where you want the video, position your cursor where you want it, then look to the tool bar above the comment window, where you'll see what looks to be a piece of film strip, click on that, and you'll get a window that tells you to paste the embed code you copied into it, do that, click OK, and you're done.

You won't see your video in the comment window before you click, "Add Comment," instead, you'll get a square that represents the space the video will occupy, don't think you've done anything wrong, it's OK.

Then just click, "Add Comment," and voilá:

Oh, yeah.

Of course it works, I just did it!

BTW, you can also embed videos into TA's Private Messages, but neither of my email programs allow for it. You can also post a video on a WordPress site, just by simply pasting the URL into the comment box, you don't even need the embed code for that, but that's probably a bit more than you really wanted to know.

Why so irrational, Arch?  You kind of fell apart back there.  You were gibbering.  What gives? 

"falsely accusing me, just as you and Angela did Mike Long,"  - but I accused you of something different, and anyway, you admit that it was true. 

Comment by archaeopteryx on September 26, 2013 at 10:02am

Well, let's take a look, and see if we can locate exactly what it is, to which you're referring - below are the two comments in question:

"It wasn't about you though."

No, it wasn't - it was about you and your protege, Jessica, coming to the rescue of a "damsel in distress," and falsely accusing me, just as you and Angela did Mike Long, in order to make yourself look good to the ladies - you must have some serious Mommy issues, that you seem to feel such a strong need to ingratiate yourself so much with women.

and,

The original problem was between Amanda and me, but you had to jump in, on the side of the lady; the thing about Mike was between Mike and Angela, but you had to jump in, on the side of the lady. It's as though you're pleading, "See what a good boy I am, Mommy? PLEASE love me --!"

I see no gibberish, each sentence appears to be complete and succinct, nor any sign of the alleged admission of guilt to which you refer. I'm afraid Paynton, that you're having another one of your hallucinations - have you taken your meds today?

You probably shouldn't play games you're not very good at, but then, if you followed that advice, you'd never play at all, would you?

Comment by archaeopteryx on September 26, 2013 at 10:42am

Jealousy? You are nothing, you have nothing, you will never be anything, of which I have any need to be "jealous."

"Twice you've mentioned being scared"

Please show me those occasions, as I have no memory of them, and ANY fears I might have, and those are few, would certainly have nothing to do with someone like you.

I'll tell you one last time, the only comments I ever make to you, are when you're spouting self-aggrandizing bull-shit - no bull-shit, no need for comments, it really is that simple. So next time you feel the compulsion to once again whine, "Why are you trolling me?" just refer back to this paragraph, if fact, I would archive it somewhere. I could suggest a location, but it would probably violate TOS rules.

Comment by Simon Paynton on September 26, 2013 at 3:28pm

But that's not true though, is it?  You troll every single thing I say, except when you aren't a member of a particular group, which is the only time I can get away from you.  

"falsely accusing me" - what have I falsely accused you of?  You began trolling me when I censured you for refusing to apologise to a young lady who had just told us that she had spent the first decades of her life in suicidal despair because of the systematic traumatic abuse she had suffered.  You said that in countries where child porn was legalized, the noncing rate goes down.  Eventually you gave a grudging apology, but I said if you're going to give a [disputed] fact like that, you need to be kissing the ground she walks on.  You adamantly refused to give a proper apology.  At least once since then you have proudly proclaimed this fact.  So no false accusations there.  

Archie - it's irrational, it's ridiculous, something else is going on here and I want to know what it is.  It's not looking at all good right now.

"But that's not true though, is it?"

Yes it is.

"You said that in countries where child porn was legalized, the noncing rate goes down."

That's correct, I did - I was quoting the results of a study, but you insisted that I apologize for quoting those results. I declined as I had done nothing wrong, though you falsely accused me of having done so.

"Archie - it's irrational, it's ridiculous, something else is going on here and I want to know what it is.  It's not looking at all good right now."

I hope you archived that No Bullshit paragraph I suggested you hold onto, as this would be the part where you answer your own question by reading it.

"Why do you put yourself in the same bracket as Mike Long?"

As I explained (you really do have comprehension issues, don't you?), both are instances of a TA member being falsely accused by a lady, and Mighty Mouse Paynton swooping in to rescue her, to make Mummy proud of her little boy.
