So jr Knowing has visited every day since at least Saturday, yet refuses to acknowledge or answer his interlocutors.
Wilful ignorance and intellectual cowardice is not a good look. It's strange why so many conspiracy believers choose to adopt this pose.

I always considered that to be more of a troll attribute. You know, lob in a hand grenade and stand back to watch the reactions.

Except in this case his hand grenade merely fizzled and was promptly rammed up somewhere that jr knowing didn't want it ramming.  ;D

I think he must have counted to five before lobbing it.

Because IMHO very few "believers" are actually honest believers...
Their need to believe in a world full of conspiracies makes them immune against any kind of reason and logic.

Here I think it's purely narcissistic.  He's checking in to see how much attention he's still being paid.  Conspiracy theories help a narcissist in two ways.  They provide something they can pontificate about and thereby pretend to be superior to the sheeple.  And conversely they provide an excuse for when they get things wrong.

Not possible.

First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three. No more. No less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor either count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then, lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it.

That is a great movie, but I believe that our antagonist would not understand anything, since he has demonstrated no scientific understanding in all of his spam threads.

Must be my natural optimistic belief in people. I think his absence is because he heeded my advice about reading some books on the subject! I won't let the fact that no HB has ever done so in the past dis-way me. Not that I'm aware of at any rate.

Yeah, what was I thinking? There's a reason I only allow myself to have a couple drinks a year.
