    There's an online article by PCWorld -- subject as above -- that is pretty humorous. Pretty accurate, too. Unfortunately, I seem to fit into at least 4 of the categories of jerkiness. Sigh o_O

    Yes, pretty funny indeed.
    I too fit into at least two categories.

    I'm pretty sure I see myself in only one category. Which leads me to... maybe there should be a separate category, The Delusionist, for people who can't recognize themselves for what others see them as. :ouch:

    Humbling.

    From your posts I've read, you seem pretty well socialized to me.

    They say "Truth is stranger than fiction". I know I must exibit my share of jerkieness. But I try to at least keep it down, but it does creep in I sure. I'm not perfect, but at least I try to be civil.

    Loved it. I suspect we all fit in to at least one or more categories every now and then; and we all know someone who fits each of those. :)

    I couldn't help but notice the first comment on the first page:
    The article, all 14 pages of it, ranting about other people. Must be a self portrait.

    By that definition, I probably qualify as a conspiracy theorist, but I don't agree with it.
    They really are out to get me!!
    :ninja: :ninja:

    Honestly, I'm not the slightest bit paranoid.
    Hey! Keep your hands where I can see them!

    Your post was number 333 for you and when multiplied by 2 you get 666 and we all know WHO that is, but I'm tooooo scared to carry on here with my sermon on numerology.

    Just because I wear aluminum foil under my baseball cap doesn't mean I think there is some sort of government conspiracy of reading Theta brainwaves with equipment inside all those white maintenance vans of various companies subcontracted with the NSA.

    Agreed. There is a lot of validity to this statement...

    I think from time to time, communication is not facilitated here at Wilders, but I also recognize the fact that I may not have the expertise to recognize that a thread is taking a turn for the worse, the way that a good mod will see it unfolding and put a halt to it. And even when I disagree with a mod's actions, I accept that we all need moderation. ;)
