You asked me to explain it in my own words. Obviously nobody knows the OP's true intentions so this is a question that is conducive of an answer
formed from opinion or theory.
Really, then why did you say this?
The point is, you among others.. Really do not grasp it. This was a very well thought out and well executed OP. It worked exactly the way it was
This is why I asked you the question.
It seems like you claim to know the OP intentions right there. You say it worked. Yet when I ask you why it worked, you come up with a logical
And now you claim noone knows his intentions. Flip flop much?
You didn't show me how anything was illogical
I did, what you think is the point of thread is in reality meaningless, and from that viewpoint it also didn't work.
. All you did was repeat what I said and then say it's illogical and you aren't impressed. Just because it happens all the time does not mean everyone
is aware that they are technically being manipulated.
That is why I made the distinction between two types of manipulation. The type you are talking about is more of a semantics thing. If you interact
with something you manipulate it. It is not something that needs to be pointed out because it is an intrinsic trait of interaction, is completely
obvious and non relevant.
Making people aware of this is of no benefit whatsoever. It is beating a dead horse.
So if the thread is about that, it is meaningless.
If it is about the other type, then the OP might be a sociopath.
Take your pick.
Obviously nobody knows the OP's true intentions
So why are you so sure then?
The OP said he was going to manipulate us. Said he has in the past. He showed images to evoke emotion, and presented ideas to do the same. Some of
them possible lies while others truths. The responses he received for all different facets of his post are evidence of how easily you all were
No it is evidence of a natural flow of discussion and differing opinions to what was said. You really think that because he said that he was
manipulating us in the beginning, that every post thereafter is somehow a testament of his master manipulation skills?
Again, you walked right into it. Who is you all? You just said he manipulated you too. Flip flop.
So he wins when people agree with him.
He wins when people don't agree with him.
What would have been the apprpriate response?
This is just silly.
Thats the social experiment of it. You have willingly allowed yourself to be a guinea pig.
This is just so.....
Then you can call any thread a social experiment, if people happen to read it it and respond to it, because they were manipulated into
It just empty drivel.
The only ones really manipulated and mindraped are the ones that flagged the empty drivel.
"Ooh, a picture of a puppy...I feel warm and fuzzy.....Heff was right, were so easy to manipulate.....Star and Flag!"
I hope the OP will return and shed some light on things, it seems like you are in his head, and doing all the talking for him.
