Witless people on web forums (not here!)

Sorry, I have to double post to vent.

On another forum, the Orthodox Christian board, there is this post about a Protestant pastor saying women should not wax their..well you know. So it turned into more humor than serious theological discussion. I made my jokes, they got laughs until I used one saying "Hairy Potter." Funny enough. Then I say I wonder if Hermione waxed. Then I say that there was likely a spell for that sort of thing.

Well, the troll, snide member, who usually responds with sarcastic responses, told me to go take a cold shower. I guess he thought it was some fantasy about Emma Watson. It wasn't. It was an innuendo. I should have not fueled the troll, but I did. I defended myself, saying it had nothing to do with a fantasy about Emma Watson. That is was just a play on the Hairy Potter metaphor. Someone then replied, "It's still creepy". Is it? I mean after I had already made clear it has nothing to do with wanting to do such and such with Emma Watson, but simply that in Hairy Potter there is a spell to wax the vagina? I am not the one who posted the article about this supposed sin of waxing. Maybe it's the writer in me. I sort of stuck my nose up because I felt them so dense and unappreciating of my clever wit.

And to prove their density, there was another occasion where some guy responded to my post asking what the point of it was. The question I brought forth was about the complicated nature of statistics on a certain social question. I made the point that I find it both pointless and important to study. He asks how that is possible.

I asked him if he had ever taken a neuropsychological exam because it should be clear enough that I was being paradoxical. I explained that the test has your read something, then tell the meaning of the story. He says seems like something even a five year old can do. I say, not necessarily if they use it on the LSAT; that's saying if even students go into law school have to answer such questions. Tell him to look it all up on Wiki, he does, and he still responds that the idea is stupid using such a thing for adults to determine reading comprehension. It is not always easy, and the point is to see where certain people are lacking in various parts of cognitive functioning. Someone else explains there are other tests that determine memory, such as a story being read and then being asked questions about specific points, like whether the story said it was afternoon or morning, etc. Still thought it was stupid and something a child could do. I think these idiots might need to take neuropsychological exam. I mean, after reading a Wiki article and having it all explained why adults take it. Do you still say people who might not do well on certain parts are not stupider than a five year old? What are you supposed to do with such dense folk?

    I dunno. Maybe in Hairy Potter they don't like their women to look like little girls. In witch case they wouldn't need a spell.

    In any case, we learned it was satire, though the pastor did make some statements that one might think strange. Satire. Since it was not clearly so, and might be taken amiss, I daresay grounds for a libel I suit. I would certainly be angry if someone put those words in my mouth.
