I don't even know what his point is other than that he habitually insults me wherever he sees i have posted so I assume anything he says is meant to insult me. I expect at some point someone will figure out he's acting like a troll and do something about it. This is where having the ability to prevent someone else from seeing your posts would come in handy, so yes, it is relevant to the subject.
He's wrong about the PM's. He PM'd me once when he took exception to something I said in a thread, demanding an explanation of why I said it. I refused to answer his question and a couple other messages were exchanged with him insisting I explain myself before it was dropped. (That was the thread where he misquoted me and then kept insisting he hadn't.)
He also just PM'd me asking for a truce. So let's see if he meant it.
Ah yes, you are correct. I overlooked that the quote from you that was in my PM to you was a quote from the thread. I decided to reply to your ludicrous, misquoting post in a PM instead of embarrassing you further by pointing out your misquote in public. Next time you make an ass of yourself in public, I'll point and laugh on the spot instead of taking it private.
But you are correct, I did indeed PM you first, to try to get you to go see what a fool you had just made of yourself on the thread since I naively thought it was an honest mistake, which I said later in the thread. When you continued denying misquoting me it was clear you had done it deliberately and somehow thought everyone was too blind or stupid to realize it.
When I saw I had quoted you in that first reply to you I thought I was quoting in reply to a PM (they look the same) and just now realized that quote from you came from the thread.
The apology I demanded was for misquoting me, not for your disagreement with what I said, which would have been hard to do since you didn't disagree with what I said, you disagreed with what you SAID I said.
You still just really don't get it, do you?
Can we just drop it now? I'm really sick to death of everything you have to say on any topic now.
That popcorn everyone is popping smells good, though.

Its hard to imagine embarrass myself when its clearly your own self-delusion that invalidates quite a bit of what you write. Your own indignation and condescending tone toward others is quite obvious to a host of other members who seem to not only find entertainment in my pointing out holes in your arguments, but also the utter ridiculousness of someone who is supposed to be a valued contributor to this forum. Instead, you are becoming somewhat of a side note to everything with exception to tax discussions on certain threads, and even that is starting to become questionable.

I have been toggling trolls left and right lately. Yes, it prevents me from having to read their crap but it does not prevent them from still writing negative responses in response to something I posted that had nothing to do with them. Then I get PM's from other forum members letting me know that Troll #1 is saying this and Troll #2 is saying this. Kinda defeats the purpose, doesn't it?
How about a feature so a forum member can basically toggle themselves (hiding their own posts) from even being viewed by these trolls and negative, argumentative posters? Since a toggle feature is already in place, this should not be a difficult addition.
