You know what? Never mind.
You are not better than anyone because you go to more shows than them. You are not better than anyone because you use affectations like "moving pictures" and "postscript." You are not better than anyone because you are some sort of trained fighter. You are not better than anyone because you make light of dying animals. You are not better than anyone because you do not use contractions. You are not better than anyone because you disrespect women.
You are a trifling waste of space and you can fuck off straight back to whatever hole you crawled out of.

Talking to that guy is like reading youtube comments. You go in with every intention of abstaining, then you accidentally scroll down too far, and when you finally pull yourself out of that hole you just want to shake people for being so fucking stupid.
This is just about as textbook as an internet forum slap fight can get. How do you feel like you've handled this better than Edward the sparkly forum troll has? At this point you are making your displeasure in regards to his antics so obvious, even to the point of making a thread asking everybody on the board to ignore him so he will go away, that all you are doing is in fact feeding the troll.
You have the right idea with ignoring him if you really want him to go away, but ignoring him by making a brand new thread telling people that they should ignore him so he goes away is just about as textbook counterintuitive as it gets.
While its pretty much still up in the air for me as to whether or not he is actually trolling or this stupid (I'd say its somewhere in the middle), it doesn't really matter.

Fuck that. Everyone always puts it all on Horned Gramma, and this time it's everyone. EVERYONE. You are ALL equally responsible and I'll be fucked in the ear with a tuning fork if I'm going to take the fucking blame this time.
I made myself perfectly clear in the thread that I started. It is not some clever gambit to rile Edwin Pagan up further, it is a sincere attempt to get this place back on fucking track.
Haha I wasn't putting the weight of the blame on you man. We've all played our part in this circus, hence us being an online "community".
However, will you deny that at this point its become a thing more or less between you and him? I mean obviously the board is going to side with you to some extent seeing as you seem to be a pretty cool guy and contribute meaningful content to the community but at this point, and I may be the only one who feels this way but I'd be willing to bet I most certainly am not, its just getting annoying from both sides.
It reminds me of when I was younger, I had a neighbor who was about 5 years younger than me and him and his twin brother both had really bad ADHD and were probably autistic or something. We would get them riled up until they (4 or 5 at the time) would just be going berserk, fighting eachother, screaming, and generally pissing off every adult within a two block radius. As soon as the parents would come running or the twins would turn on us, we would immediately say that it was not our fault and try and convince ourselves that it was something wrong with them and we were the victims.
Not a perfect analogy, I know, but damn it was fun getting those little guys going battle royale style.

Good barb slinging all in all! It's funny, as a late comer to this event you can't help but notice the insecure posturing of PRETENTIOUS DOUCHEBAG. I don't mean in an intimidating way, just in that "lone wolf" not understanding why they lack the confidence and skills to interact with others type of way. It's that mix of a legitimate lack of understanding and yet a persistent attempt to go full steam ahead despite it all. It's admirable for sure, but "admirable" in that three legged horse trying to run in a four legged horse race kind of way. I mean the three legged horse accomplishes a lot by getting to the finish line, no doubt. We of course temporarily ignore the fact that all the other horses, including the slowest four legged horse, were there 5 hours ago. It's touching and people clap and cheer, but they do this through pity and empathy and because they know they must make a concession in their expectations. To place the same expectations on this three legged horse in a four legged horse race would just be cruel. But really we are all asking ourselves why not just be you in all your three legged glory and stop trying to run a race you’ve clearly lost before you started.
E, this is what it is like talking with you. I'm sorry but it is true. We need to throw on our empathy hats and change the way we would normally address another human being if we are to form any semblance of a conversation with you. This is the insurmountable gap that separates you from Gramma. People’s reaction to Gramma are based on what he says. They can then proceed to have a conversation with one another and maybe even learn a thing or two about themselves . People’s reactions to you are just based on who you are. I highly doubt it is a whole lot different in the real world and across all sub-cultures from music lovers to UFC lovers. It’s you. Doesn’t it suck that in order for someone to have a normal conversation with you that they need to actively approach you with a sense of pity? It doesn’t have to be that way dude.
