    @scumhook
    #1 I'm drunk and wired.
    #2 [​IMG]
    #3 I found about a years worth of Human Communication Research Journals and in that was this: Sugaring the Pill: Assessing Rhetorical Strategies Designed to Minimize Defensive Reactions to Group Criticism
    #4 I bet you can see where I'm going with this.

    What does this have to do with me?
    -postulate of imaginary scumhook

    School of Psychology University of Queensland

    Excerpt "Australians are racist."

    So I'm going to try and prepare you a report of their report that is not TL;DR

    Yeah, not really...

    I initially read "postulate" as "prostate" and got excited. I figure you know your way around a bloke's backdoor pretty well.

    They did research to try and deliver criticism in ways that cause the least drama which can be utilized to do the opposite.

    I found an abstract online, but don't feel like purchasing the full article. I'll just wait on your report.

    I missed the fact that you're going to prepare a report. Probably due to your research assistant's pic.

    Make sure you include her, and any of her friends, in your final report.

    Absolutely, these rhetorical strategies become less affective the more people understand them. Most peeps these days don't understand how to think critically and thus leaving them open to attack by those who do, the restrictive nature of obamacare has made what should be the golden era of trolls a ruddy bronze.

    Nonetheless we should commit to a new bot that matches the variety and frequency of the actions of an average user. Imagine flooding a forum with bots that are specifically designed to scan a forum and automatically post and reply in the most inflammatory manner possible all without giving away their true nature. Structuring the Artificial personality and equipping it with matching rhetorical heuristics, it's really all art.

    You could have an army of phoebesoflulzec or messyjessies. Or even better an army of SugarBMOs descending on a forum engaging in a vicious cat fight with anything that has a vagina.

    Your instincts are on the money. Autists communicate robotically along a rhetorical map that has been drawn out before the conversation even begins. To a degree this is true for everyone but especially so for autistics because of their ridged systematization and lack of empathy which usually results in mindblindness.

    The idea isn't a question of artificial intelligence, but one of artificial personality. With proper development we are talking about creating a swarm of bots that are indistinguishable from live users.



    It's like soundboards for bots, yes it's not as good as a skilled troll manualing all this but it should create a similar payoff for limited effort.

    We have here a textbook case of high-functioning autism.


    Rather than countering facts he uses the same ad hominen to avoid reality, in his mind he "wins" arguments online despite the very different experience of others. This is an example of mind-blindness and subsequently why The Member Formerly Known As Baya is, without question, a virgin.

    You're an admitted autistic. You've never met me. As far as any reasonable person is concerned you have no intellectual authority.

    Oh bayarage. I've never said I was autistic, if your referring to my sig it's making fun of the stupidest insult I've ever gotten. No one met Chris Chan and yet no one needs to in order to know he's autistic, and as far as any reasonable person is concerned you're a mentally disabled basement dweller who can't work, leaches off of his parents while lying to them, and bitches about government taxes despite paying none and collecting benefits. BTW despite your rationalizations to the contrary, you are using the government to steal from hardworking people; those foodstamps have to be paid for by somebody.

    yeah it seems nobody understands that The Member Formerly Known As Baya will increase his post count
    by writing extremely short contrarian sentences and then arguing them
    in any way possible to keep them going for fifteen pages.

    im pretty sure he does it intentionally just to keep people arguing for as long as possible.

    he doesnt care if hes right.

    i dont bother. i see through his schemes.

    he gets one or two replies maximum before i post this shit.

    And what the fuck do you think I do it for? Well I do it for many reasons but right before my likes outnumbered my posts I got in 4 arguments with him at once AND I started spamming shit in the spam thread trying to keep that from happening before my medication wore off and I quit caring.
