The Burnout Factor

In a perceptive comment to my previous post "The Blather Factor," a reader of this blog observed:


"This pretty much sums up Mr. Barford, a.k.a. Warsaw Wally...

1.Trolls are immune to criticism and logical arguments. True trolls cannot be reasoned with, regardless of how sound your logical argument is.

2.Trolls do not feel remorse like you and me. They have sociopathic tendencies, and accordingly, they delight in other people having hurt feelings.

3.Trolls consider themselves separate from the social order.

4.Trolls do not abide by etiquette or the rules of common courtesy.

5.Trolls consider themselves above social responsibility.

6.Trolls gain energy by you insulting them.

7.Trolls gain energy when you get angry.

8.The only way to deal with a troll is to ignore him, or take away his ability to post online."


I will leave it to readers of this blog to determine for themselves to what extent the above profile fits Mr. Barford.

Meanwhile, whether his blogging approach could best be described as trolling, blathering or simply not really being interested in posting anything other that "blog bites" intended to pursue propaganda purposes, Mr. Barford's blog posts have impressed this observer as no longer being worth reading. "Burned Out by Blather" would be a fitting description of that state of mind.
