Sounds like you don't like cats either. I have a Pit Bull and she takes care of unwelcome cats.

Some people spend decades on this, and as many, have been almost 6 decades in this hobby, and I learn something new every month and if someone is demanding about something , I don't argue, I just skip over any of their requests. I don't have time to waste if someone doesn't want to hear. I see many reports on some I consider experts, by members that say they are "bad to me" . I check and the problem is usually that the member will not take no for an answer. It would be different if one of the expert got paid for commenting and explaining , but they do this out of their desire to help. Some people don't even say "thanks" or " why", they just start a new thread on the same coin.
I will take a grumpy expert who knows what they are taking about over a "nice" person who tells them to get it slabbed and sell it to a museum, anytime.
Honestly Jim, it's just like the old dealer I have posted about here before. Ben Marlenee was his name, great man. He was an old grumpy dealer who had a frown on his face and people wonder why he was in a sales business. If you went up to him and asked some questions, he would respond gruffly. However, if you came back again and again, asked different questions, showed you actually learned from his previous answers, he was the most knowledgable man in the world. He WANTED to teach others about his hobby, but had spent 50 years putting up with the same old questions where people did not want knowledge.
People here WANT to teach others about our hobby, but we want people to want to learn.
I think it's interesting and instructive that Meow has become a regular contributor here -- because he does post coin-related material, and does learn from discussions, and doesn't try to make trouble outside of the "I'm-really-a-cat" shtick. And CoinTalk as a whole has accepted him as a member, without continuing to make a big deal about the shtick.
If he's really a troll, he's either the most successful one I've encountered, or the least successful one I've encountered. Either way, I'm content that he's stuck around.
I generally have found that fools don't know they're being foolish, with disregard for others, as I/you don't know when we are wrong, until we may have a civil conversation with another. Often we may find through civil discourse that we are, because of age, training, gender, locale, etc., WRONG to others. A civil P.M. sent, often corrects a perceived problem.
I often have great "one on one" discussions with special grand-children that have problems with others, although they may be judged "most correct". I inform them that when civil simple objective discussion doesn't work, try the IGNORE solution until matters may change.
I believe the moderators on this site have done a great tolerant effort to accept adverse semi-hostile communications, and it is our duty to show support, rather than maybe snide comments.
@MeowtheKitty ) but never maliciously or with ill intent and haven't gotten scratched yet (maybe a few hisses) and I have to admit that I enjoy the cat posts. The newbies who want to come on here and get abusive when they get real advice...eh...no great loss.
Corgis are notorious barkers.
I think you've made that abundantly clear here already.
Depends on if it's the famous Wyatt Derp - or not
...but can change their access to this forum.
