I'm probably a little late in doing this but here it is:

I thought the test was unfair at points with questions like, "Would you take a bullet for a stranger?" I think there are just some situations that we can't understand until we are actually in them.

I answered neutral, and thought, "No, I would not take a bullet for a stranger. I would knock said stranger to the ground so that neither of us took the bullet." But that's just me.

I suppose this has gotten little out of hand. When I made my original statement "they have no feelings," I was being sarcastic. When you guys took that statement seriously, I defended it as a joke. I thought the joke would be abundantly obvious as I shifted my views constantly and said inflammatory things, but you all continued to take everything I said to heart. TM is the only one that got the joke, it seems.

I plead guilty to the charge of trolling, and throw myself upon the mercy of the board.

Unfortunately for you, I think TM was being dead serious. He enjoys being head flamer/troller/whatever-you-want-to-call-him, and he viewed you as a threat. Also, while I can't speak for the rest of the members, I didn't take any of what you said to heart. I just took it seriously. Finally, I like your new signature. :P

I doubt he saw me as a threat. As you can all see, I'm not very good at trolling, especially when it has to do with a topic I know nothing about. After all, this was supposed to be a thread on human nature. I won't claim that I really know anything about animals, after all, I'm a mere human myself.

Well, I guess we learned a lot about virtual human nature here today. You throw a virtual steak (or, in this case, a virtual can of spam), and everyone goes after it like a group of Neanderthals. :cool:

It's difficult to understand your sarcasm when you exhibit no warm cuddliness at all whatsoever in anything when the rest of society moves toward more humane principles.

Also, a bit late:

You scored as Destroyer.

Congratulations. You're a Destroyer. For the record, this means you are probably Psychotic as these questions were taken from a Psychiatry book. You either hate order or view it as a tool for control. Your second trait is probably Narcissist or Miscreant. Combine this result and the second for what you are.

And by 'ethics', I'm guessing you mean something else entirely. Which, by the way, is not a good idea.

When have you ever not shifted your views constantly and said inflammatory things? In order for a joke like this to be funny, you have to provide some evidence that you're joking. Watch Thuryl; he's great at this, far better than you are.

I never shifted my views before. I am a laissez faire capitalist that beleives the people have a right to overthrow the government. When have I ever diverted from this in all the economic and political discussions we've had? When have I ever not given support to back up my theories? Come on, all that crap about animals had trolling written all over it.

As for not being good at humor, yeah I already admitted that. Humor is not my thing, but seriously, if this isn't evidence of an incomming joke, then I must be truly hopeless:

BTW this is the second time i took this quiz. #1 gave me Pacifist 70% and Miscreant 60%. I guess i don't answer questions the same way twice. I did laugh at the result though. Damn right if someone else wants to do my work, go right ahead, its not my problem.

Congratulations. You are a Loner. You like the idea of not having to do much to get something, but if something has to be done, you probably find someone else to do it. You are probably labeled a "slacker". You may also have not found a challenge. Combine this answer with your second to see what you are.

Loner 70%

Hedonist 60%

Miscreant 40%

Pacifist 40%

Conqueror35%

Citizen35%

Altruist35%

Narcissist25%

Guardian25%

Destroyer20%

I'm going to be charitable and assume you really aren't aware of just how much real people's opinions can suck. Hell, I can advocate genocide with a straight face and still have people wonder whether I'm serious.

Thuryl manages to support his "beliefs" nicely and demands real answers to difficult questions. You, Tully, just cause deadlocked debates where nobody has to really rethink their positions on anything and in which nobody can budge an inch because the viewpoints are so completely polarized.

—Alorael, who actually likes Thurylian morality. It's refreshing, and nobody can honestly claim never to have wanted to give someone a post-natal abortion given sufficient cause.

One thing I've learned the hard way is that, because you're not talking face-to-face with someone, something that, to you, is obviously a joke can easily get mistranslated by the reader. This is because you can't hear the tone nor see the face of the speaker, which can hold the most obvious clues to whether that person is joking or not.

Fortunately, two great Graemlins exist for this very purpose. The :P Graemlin is a good way to indicate a joke, and the :rolleyes: Graemlin can occasionally be used to indicate sarcasm.

If this thread gets any more surreal, it'll need to be framed with the caption "Ceci n'est pas un topic," pardon my French.

Edit: And by framed, I mean locked.
