I agree, although there's a newish post on the Landlocked thread in All Saints praising him - and even Zappa said he was Ok IRL.

Right, this is in Hell and there's nothing to stop IngoB coming back should he wish. He just did an almighty flounce dressed up to make him appear hard done by. He was nowhere near as bright as he tried to make out. Much of his posting was a series of debating tricks but lacking any real substance. His spouting of what he thought is RC theology was dry and academic - Thomas Aquinas lacking the humanity he ultimately had - and sounded to me that he had a conservative theologian send him a reply dredged from an out-of-date text book. Perhaps it was from that Irish poster who was convinced that Benedict was far too liberal; even that the SSPX should have been more vigilant in making sure that use of the Ambrosian rite was limited to Milan, that sort of thing.

In other words, I did not like him nor did I respect him.

Just a quick review: everybody hereabouts is essentially supportive of equality for women and as sensitive to issues of systemic bias as our individual perception can allow - yes? Yeah, I though so.

No prophet, you're the philosophical equivalent of an own-goal pretty consistently. Do you know what that might mean?

Yes. I'm sorry. It means you're really fucking stupid. And annoying. Hate to be the one to break it to you. It can be hard to hear.

Wow does this varies greatly depending on the speaker and subject.
Fr. Gregory, for example. Anselmina mentions growing fond of him, whilst I found that the more familiar the more contemptuous.
But I think this is because I dared mention that orthodoxy might not be perfect. I came to picture him wearing an orthodoxy or death shirt, swinging a razor-encrusted censor at any who might deign to question the one, true version of the one, true sect of the one, true faith.

Fr. G. could be a real dick. No question.

IngoB was dick through and through. He was a #1 A-class jerk, whose favorite debate tactics were the tu quoque and the ad hominem. Very knowledgeable asshole.

Yes, an almighty flounce when he realised that he was on a losing argument and did not want to own up to it. Very dressed up as a face-saving gesture.

Can anyone remember the name of that Irish RC poster who totally lacked the sort of humanity we see in eg Forthview and Adam. (ex-Hart)?

Well in that case I allowed myself to be conned on the basis that a) he'd never realised he was on a losing argument before b) he'd never dressed up a face-saving gesture before - presumably under the apprehension he didn't need it and c) he's never written anything remotely like that leaving post before.

But anyway he's gone quiet, and based on the way he was posting I think it's probably healthier for him that he has.

You may want to read the whole linked thread, but IngoB had painted himself into a corner and could not get out - so got out of the whole Ship.instead. At least that's the conclusion I'd reached. YMMV. I'd stopped following a thread having caught him trying to manoeuvre me into a position he could say "Snap" or words to that effect. But it's far too pleasant an evening to think much upon him.

No, he just had the wrong idea about what sort of debate we were interested in here. There's a place for his preferred sort of ultra-competitive winner-takes-all debating style, but it's not here.

After many suggestions ISTR he wanted a board dedicated to that, but no one else rose to it. He should have taken this as a hint much earlier, but Bingo couldn't take a hint delivered with a Louisville Slugger.

Oh God. Don't remind me of Ingo's stupid belief that a message board ought to behave like a ritualised jousting tournament.

If he ran a pub, he would require all patrons to book a table in advance, wear formal evening dress, and your fish and chips would be the 7th course on a set degustation menu.

Johnny S. was, IIRC, a comparatively nice evangelical. I frequently disagreed with him but he was hardly King of the Asshats. A baronetcy at most, IMO. [Biased]

Yes, he did mellow greatly with age as I mentioned, but he certainly had his moments before that. I only engaged with him in the later stages.

There was another Fr Gregory mini form (London based) orthodoxen who was a rather holy soul. I had some very profound discussions with him. Can't for the life of me recall his name though.

My, slightly vague, memory of him was that his posting content was at odds with his avatar.
The vagueness is that I do not remember why his avatar was inappropriate, not whether it was.

Bingo was a special snowflake. I still feel like my ability to not feel bothered by him was symptomatic of something horribly wrong with me. Marv and orfeo are completely right about his dedication to pugilistic interactions. But what I think made him so utterly fascinating - and generally destructive inter-personally - was his absolute inability for either introspection or empathy.

There's something charming about confidence and certainty. But it can only go so far. Even for president-elects.

What lingers for me about Fregory was that he was only really keen on discussing with me during my first visits to the site, where I was snarkily anti-religion as my main kernel of interest. After I developed a broader sense of respect for many of the myriad participants in Purgatory, and settled somewhat more comfortably in my agnosticism, Fregory seemed to have no need to talk with me.

I suppose interest in debate often has an inverse relationship between intensity and longevity.

Do you think his islamophobia was a necessary core belief, or merely a logical extrapolation of he spittle-flecked style of loyalty to Orthodoxy?

I rather liked Goodric.

And the ships quiz.
I loved the shitstorm that Quizmaster introduced by setting the challenge 'Post a thread and the thread with lowest post count is out' and the conniptions it caused when one poster called him to Hell for it as their thread.

Islamophobia goes pretty deep in Orthodoxy. The Orthodox east bore most of the brunt of the spread of Islam beyond the confines of Arabia. And they stole Our City. That that was hundreds and hundreds of years ago, and today's Muslims weren't there at the time, is known by today's Orthodox to wildly varying degrees.

Yes and he christened my wife the Queen of Hell. We had great fun with that at the Mousehold, I can tell you. He thought we would all be impressed with him because he claimed to be a Hollywood scriptwriter, although he wasn't at liberty to say which scripts he had actually written. God, he was fun to tweak.

Come to think of it, we haven't had a "bring it on, I'll take you all with one hand behind my back" noob for quite a while. How the glory has faded.

Yes! As i recall she was also chief bully out prime bully or comparable. "Prime Bully and Queen of Hell." Something very like that. A direct quote of TDF of course.

Like those aren't 15 to the dozen. Should have asked him which Starbucks he worked at

Please, God, let David Miscavige find us.

Because seriously, wouldn't it be awesome to fuck with David Miscavige? [Snigger]

And I'm pretty sure Josephine's Calling ThomasDF to Hell thread is in Limbo somewhere. You don't have to recall anything, you can relive the magic.

Wow. The thing that stands out about him, after his monumental ego, is how badly he writes.

Which is actually a reason to believe his claim to be a Hollywood script writer...

Well, that was entertaining. Bit of a trip down memory lane, too. I poured myself a glass of wine and had a good read, admittedly skipping a lot of TDF's tirades. (A Mousethief Cooler would have been more appropriate, but I'm out of gin.)

Re TDF:

At the time, there was speculation that his two teenage sons periodically hijacked his account, and that was why "his" writing was all over the place, in terms of style, quality, and content.
