I am suspicious that this is not even his real name, nor his country. His English is too good. Plus, I saw someone on FB that said some things eerily similar, but not as obnoxious. So, I don't know, but I am suspicious.

My thoughts as well. Not only his English but his apparent grasp of US state weather. He just seems to know too much to be where he claims to be located.

npad69 wrote:hi kristi, besides beefing up the ignore function.. maybe you can look into the "hide post by downvote" feature which i see in some of the forums i've been in. its basically like hiding a post if it gets like 10 or so downvotes, people can still read them but they will still need to click on another link for them to see it. replying to a "hidden" post/reply will also inherit the downvote and it will also be hidden to discourage people from replying to trolls.
And, if we had a Like or Upvote button, I would click it for Npad's post WITHOUT having to quote it...

I don't agree with that. Either you believe in free speech or you don't. This kinda thing usually degenerates into mob-like attacks on people for saying unpopular things even if they are said in an appropriate way.

The best approach is like in life. Express yourself how you see it and listen to the other guy. If you want to discuss it, discuss it. If you see the guy is unreasonable you just say have a nice day and go on to something else.

This is a separate issue from attacks on people, which I think everyone agrees aren't acceptable.

The up/downvote thing can get real "cliquey" really fast where you're part of the in crowd or you aren't. We don't have that issue much here (if we do I must not be in the in-crowd lol) but the potential is there. For the most part this forum is self policed really well. You have to be a real jackass to get banned from here.

I went and found the thread he was in when he melted down this latest time. I honestly get the feeling he can't understand why people don't comprehend his genius. Seeing "lesser" people become successful at designing a knife for the pre- eminent performance knife company is to him similar to seeing a person he is crushing on select another person instead of him. It causes enough pain to make him want to lash out.

Recall his past here. He swore he was going to start his own knife company when he couldn't get others here to climb on the bandwagon for his design, rainbow finish and all. Now someone has had success when he didn't. In addition forumites seem to be receptive and even complimentary to this upstart knife designer while not taking him seriously.

All in all a disturbed chicken head who can't decide whether to righteously storm off or stay and inflict pain on the tormentors of his ego. That causes a painful realization that no one here is invested enough in him to feel pain from his scorn. The only course of action would be to convince himself we are low intelligence yokels who have surrendered to shill-ness. That is why we can't realize the brilliance of his nuggets of wisdom he shares with us lesser intellects.

Very interesting Dr. Mastiff! :)

The Dunning–Kruger effect.

"In the field of psychology, the Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias wherein persons of low ability suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly assessing their cognitive ability as greater than it is. The cognitive bias of illusory superiority derives from the metacognitive inability of low-ability persons to recognize their own ineptitude."

If the guy really isn't a troll, that's a bummer. But honestly, I feel like if that's the case then the guy needs a reality check all the same.
