I thought at first you used "lexicon," but instead you said "dictionary." It wouldn't have added much to the general air of pretentiousness either way.

Oh no! A man on the internet has thrice insulted me! *faints* Seriously? You started out by trying to pretend I was a small chid, and now you're upset that I'm smarter than you. Wouldn't it be awful if I was a small child and smarter than you? Luckily, I'm not a small child. Smile

But my point still stands, you used the word "power" because you think that your "influence" actually means something. Because you think that there's something "solid" to it. When there's not. This is all just php pages that will be seen by like 50 people worldwide, tops.

No, I used the word power because it was the definition in my dictionary (here's a screenshot). Here'a a helpful tip for arguing against people who aren't dumb: never make assumptions, because all I have to do is prove your assumption wrong and your argument is wrong.

Uhh no. Referring to it as "my dictionary" doesn't make you smarter than anybody. Arguing with somebody as delusional as you on the Internet does make me dumber, though.

And when was I "bullying" people? I'm just insulting people. With, you know, words. This is the internet, that's like the only thing the Internet has. That, and porn.

edit: And why did you even refer to the dictionary to insult me in the first place? That's really autistic, and not in an interesting "I can do math puzzles" kind of way.

No, you constantly being wrong increases the probability that I'm smarter than you. Notice how many times you've abandoned a line of argument after I've shown you were wrong.

Also, the fact that you still haven't noticed that, after you started being a dick, I just kept leading you down a garden path of insults and watched you flail harmlessly against them.

You want this to be about how sad I am, but really it's about how gullible you are... because if you want to be a dick to me, I'll return the favor.

Why a "garden path?" Do you hallucinate what you're typing when you're on the Internet? Is that why your language is so... hyperbolic? For lack of a better word?

to "lead down the garden path" is an idiom that means to deceive.

My language isn't hyperbolic, because it's meant to be taken seriously. You might call it grandiose, but you already called it pretentious. How many adjectives do you need to explain me?

You didn't "deceive" anybody. You used a dictionary definition for a word that nobody brought up before you did to insult me. That's not deceiving somebody, that's just being autistic.

edit: if you're actually autistic then I feel bad. Because I'm 90% sure that nobody would use the dictionary to insult somebody unless they were autistic.

This is a throwback, because I didn't notice it before. Using autistic as an insult is a dick move. Autism is a disorder caused by genes and epigenetic factors. It's not something people do, or a way people do things. You don't argue or insult autistically.

I'm not autistic, and it's clear from your use of the word that you don't even know what it really means, so you should probably stop using it. Because to people who do know what it means it makes you look both ignorant and like an asshole. Find a way to insult me that doesn't involve demeaning the lives of other people, okay?

Oh snap, and you keep using the word as I'm typing a reply that tells you why you're an asshole for using the word.

That's because you A) don't know what autism is, B) obviously haven't been using your dictionary, because you don't know the meaning of a variety of words, and C) are ignorant and like to use the misfortunes of other people as an insult, which is awesome in a "that's how my grandfather talks about black people" kind of way.
