Sorry to bring FYM in here, but regarding that same-sex marriage thread, I really get the impression that this Indy character is just "taking the piss" as Axver said and baiting everyone, and most everyone is taking that bait. Does anyone else get that feeling?

I have to agree.

If it was anyone else but indy, I would think so. But he's such a caricature, it makes me wonder sometimes.
His dismissive comment about Pagans made me laugh

I have avoided FYM for a few years now. It's one big circle jerk, and nobody is immune from acting like an asshole in there. For every good discussion there are 50 more that devolve into the same bullshit. However annoying a lot of people on this site find, let's say, Lazarus, that's how I feel about that place.

Part of me wishes I had dedicated my 45,000 posts just to posting this song.

I should totally avoid it too. Something about the way certain people post in there turns me into a complete asshat. It's mostly reactionary, but still, it's not like I can't just stay away from it

It's probably a sign that we have a few people with political science degrees as regulars in Bang and Clatter who never post there.

Cool song, Cobbz.

The reason I say it is that he seems to have a clear pattern. He says something inflammatory, at which point people justifiably get offended and proceed to call him out on it for three pages. He then comes back with something completely unrelated but equally inflammatory, and the process starts all over again. Seems like conspicuous trolling to me.

He's not. He has a sense of humor so he can rub people the wrong way by not differentiating his sarcasm from his regular posting, which is a lot easier to do when you are already posting things that get people riled up. He genuinely believes in what he is saying, though. His various arguments can be summed up as simply being terrified of change. He is, I believe, middle aged, so that is not an uncommon thing.

It might just be a case of him being unable to defend most of his beliefs from a purely rational perspective, so he avoids it all together. But I can see your point. Who knows

I think he enjoys playing the FYM "martyr" a bit.

I'm still reading, but I'm getting better at not letting it get to me.

For those who wanted a picture: this is me at the top of the Kilimanjaro. I look really pleased with myself.
