 this was a waste of time

 Here I thought this page was for decent discourse and not a home for ad-hominem based argument. I wish you all good luck in your mired existence destined to end in failure. I will be sure to reference this page as a classic example of how the feeble minded utilize technology, which they have no real knowledge of,  as a basis for grandeur and self-importance. You and your kind have caused the rapid decay of a once educational medium.

Ad hominem? (5.00 / 2) (#1)

Oh Mr. Hojo,

The loyal readers of, The Most Controversial Site on the Internet do not attack individual readers based upon their opinions. We only attack your stupid, inane arguments.

Of course, as a disk jockey (as your name implies), I wouldn't expect you to understand this.

Insults aren't ad hominem attacks. Ad hominem attacks are those where the putative poor character of the argument maker is suggested to undermine the logical content of his argument. They are of the form, "Sir, you eat mud, therefore you are wrong." While I might be a profane motherfucker, I do not make ad hominem arguments, you syphilitic son of a rotten-toothed whore.

Li'l Sis: Yo, that's a real grey area. Even by my lax standards.

Who are you? (5.00 / 2) (#3)

I mean really, who the hell are you?

Oh yeah. You're the idiot who tried the ad hominem attack, and then had to eat poop when it backfired massively.

When you imply that your opponent is not intelligent enough to understand an essay, you are engaging in ad-hominem. When you fail to realize that your opponent wrote the essay in question, you are engaging in stupid.

Your rabid, drooling Anti-Christian nonsense would be an example of ad-hominem, too, if the man in question were not made of straw.

...that the title of your diary reads "this was a waste of time". One would think that someone as learned and important as yourself you would avoid more spurious "time wasting", by just leaving. Apparently not.

Being an amateur in psychology, I would contend that this "last stand" of yours is an attempt to provide a final, yet pitiful example of your self ascribed brilliance, exclamated by your knowledge of a single Latin phrase. Kurobots everywhere are cheering. Go to them.

--You seem to be suffering from a liberal-arts education.

people who visit this site and get upset by the scintillating and controversial opinions expressed can't leave without first writing a diary entry that usually asserts that:

* this site sucks and everyone who frequents it has lower IQs than the diarist;
* adults are stupid and fascist;
* Lunix is fabulous;
* T. Reginald Gibbons is an idiot;
* he/she is leaving forever, goodbye!

They then generally sneak back in at least once to see how everyone responded to their childish, inane diatribe. It's a pretty clear pattern by now.

Mama Mua is an IMAP4 message user agent written in Python. It uses Tkinter and Pmw for the user interface. The standard Python run-time libraries do the rest.
