folks that come to a forum . A forum with an existing post opposing their view's. ------------Those I am needing this word for ,never address the questions---------questions that further their oppositions view as ''the correct one'' . --------------Instead they will point out some misspelling , incorrect grammar , and many other ways of attacking the messenger. This seems to be an attempt to downplay the possible intelligence ,in their opponents view ----
You never get them to follow through and actually have a meeting of minds in a joint venture that both can be happy with. Put 5 difficult points showing their view's weakness and they ignore all 5 and do their usual shallow appearance ,then disappear.
Anyway is that a straw man or is there another name.

Is well known in this part of the world as; Richard Cranium (formal version of name). Never argue with said person/s, as they are only ever interested in dragging you to THEIR own anaemic point of view.

Ad hominem attack/argument......it's a sure sign that your opponent has no alternative rational argument to your statement, but does not like what you are saying.

Are you referring to what is known as a troll? Someone who drags a jagged hook into the internet with the hopes of pulling some good natured person into a sicko argument. One that would make the troll feel somewhat superior for a few moments of their pitiful existence.

There's another word for people like those described above. It rhymes with "glass bowls."

Or maybe they think the response is so puerile that they just can't be arsed to respond , or are having a day away from the computer, or are sick, or ..... It's a computer banjo forum. Nobody is compelled to post or not post. If all questions on the BHO Off Topic got a response then the threads would go on forever ( or until locked for being political) If you are accusing me of not responding to your post where you accused me of wrongly saying you had posited the idea that WWII graves could be removed when your post said (and I quote via cut 'n paste) "Is your gravestone to be tore down ??" then the first of these would apply quite nicely.

What you always get when you post words on a forum are "differing opinions".
Forums encourage debates and arguments.

Sorry for not taking instructions well.
That's why I put quotes around "differing opinions".
Does "differingopinions" make it one word?

trucks have been quarantined for now
& btw, 19 is comprised of a 1 and a 9
1+9=10
10 is comprised of a 1 and a 0
1-0 = 1
So we’re back to square one/1/uno/ein

You get whatever anyone thinks on here,Tom.I think I'm doing good.

A couple guys I grew up with hired a girl to fill baitbags for lobster traps.

She did a good job for them and they had a tee-shirt and hat made for her that said "Masterbaiter".

I think you could classify such drive-by commenting as being done by "trolls", who usually have negative comments, never read the question or post, and mostly post negatively. There ya go.

The difficulty of the points are in the the eye of the writer. Others may consider the points to be ridiculous and not worthy of a response. Sometimes they might be moved to quickly suggest the points are silly beyond words. They then go and play the banjo instead.

that is an interesting situation ,but I am not talking about anything close to that , the difficulty is of another kind  .it is a recurring style not just one incidence  .a style that closes communications .

I will probably use Ad hominem it looks like a good one. I need it to explain why I ignore these disruptions.
