We should have a Mac-Civ forum to show them how it's done.

First off he's a complete jerk. Add on the fact that he's a little boy who hasn't finished school yet thinks he knows everything (and thus is to good to become properly educated) and you will start to understand why so many people find him irritating.

I especially hate it when he goes on one of his capitalism is evil, it is immoral to make a profit, and communism would work perfectly except the evil west sabotaged the eastern block. They had something like 40%-50% of the world’s resources yet Aggie would never admit that the communist system was flawed in any way nor that any communist leader had ever made even the slightest error in judgement.

I especially loved it when Che (a fellow commie) asked Aggie to explain the basic tenants of Communist ideology and Aggie couldn’t do it. He’s never taken a class nor read a book (pro or con) about the communist system yet he thinks he some how has in-depth knowledge about how it works. At poly, I’ve heard him argue with people who have degrees in Economics about Economics and be totally, wildly wrong. He claims such asinine things as denying that printing vastly more money will normally cause higher inflation; he’s also claimed that companies would be able to make better products and employ more people if the government outlawed profit-making transactions.

Sadly, that is true. Poly does have a number of highly educated and intelligent posters though. They just get shouted down by the 16 year olds ho think they know everything.

I seem to recall now why, initially I refused to participate in the so-called "economics" discussions over there and, subsequently, why I gave up visiting there at all.

I don't hate him. I just have decided he doesn't know what he's talking about 90% of the time and so I skip over most of his posts.

I will say, after rereading that thread over there, it was quite masterful.

Ash managed to destroy his enemy's fun, ruin their private forum, and get some of them in hot water, yet took no damage.

A really good attack, well done.

Naw, it was brillant tactics Navy.

But it was a TKO, and that's what I'm aiming for.

I'm the kind of guy that'll kick you hard in the groin if I have to.

I don't have the limitations of Navy men out to prove their manliness due to memories of hormone-driven experimentation 500 feet under the water, all I want is to get the job done with a minimum amount of work on my part.

Agathon being part of a clique is all the reason in the world to burn it. Who care about collateral damge when an opportunity to irritate him presents itself?
