No way. Bamnam free zone this one!
and bamnan is a moth, he will never come here.... or is that badgers?
Just needs to stop letting internet messageboards get to him.
Other stuff recently: couple of 300+ threads on middle/working class, and there was a 600-odd post thread on women's armpit hair the other day but I never even clicked into it. I think it was about feminism though.
While I stand by my post up ^there, I honestly think it'd do him good to spend some time off DiS.
Everybody needs it occasionally.
to try and head this thread off quickly, I would like to point out that whatever his perceived faults, Bamnan is a lovely fella.
was extremely nice when I met him.
being a prick? myth busted.
but he just can't help but smother it to death with angry solipsism and reactionary self-righteousness. with a bit of therapy and a decent education i reckon he could be transformed into a pretty intelligent thinker... too bad therapy and education are so damn bourgeois
i was actually hoping you would grace us with one of your well-formed theories about why therapy, education and intelligence are all worthless middle-class conspiracies to maintain class inequality
and never understood that. If he is genuinely a solipsist would he bother arguing with people the way he does on here?
If bamnam's a solipsist, he doesn't believe we exist and he's just arguing with creations of his own mind.
I'm definitely made up.
The second I wasn't aware it could be used in that a sense. So a lack of empathy basically?
i don't think he's an *actual* solipsist (he is also not an *actual* nihilist) but he takes a pretty solipsistic attitude to things whereby 'discussion' = bamnan shouting his opinions over and over again and then congratulating himself on how wonderfully right he is, rather than engaging with anything anyone else says
but by 'engage' i do not mean read someone's reply and then go 'yeah, but here is why I AM STILL COMPLETELY RIGHT' (usually involving a reiteration of what you already said). i've never ever seen you revise any of your opinions even slightly in the face of a decent counterargument. just sayin'
ok now i'm gonna stop participating in analyse bamnan day, this is starting to feel pathetic even for me and even for this site
rather than any abstract understanding of the world or imaginative projection that involves acknowledgment of other people's existence
but i don't really like most people.
regardless, victimisation is not cool, right?
Everybody should just chill (Winston).
that is all
He has an opinion. He expresses it. He doesn't say stuff like "well its all subjective at the end of the day" or "well it doesn't really matter really does it don't be so serious". Basically i'd rather talk with baman that 90% of you because you're all boring cunts with no brains and no opinions.
Baman has this bizarre persecution complex though.
would you rather be too serious or too flippant (like all of these bores)?
Did lazertit get banninated? Shame.
I leave him for Jon as I know he enjoys it. :D
And if you're working on a cure for it, give it to theShipment's 90s hip-hop thread first. Destroyed by that troll, innit. This one? Meh.
he's bracingly pure in many ways
For what its worth
