Haganah is great. He has a lot of info and is very smart, but doesn't deal well with idiocy. Imagine manton with a different skillset and a lower tolerance and a saucier vocabulary.

That whole thread is a serious goatscrew now.

Can someone explain this term, where it comes from, and what special connotations it might have that make it applicable to that trainwreck of a thread?

Yeah, I agree he's the man. It probably wasn't what he said but more who he said it to. I've seen much more racist stuff said.

Good to know. I'm sure you're the only one.

I don't know. I like a lot of what he contributes but he's gotten very nasty with me with what I believed to be minimal provocation. Then again, I might be one of the idiots you speak of.

Doubt it. Maybe Thomas would miss you. I've seen the fan mail he gets, enough to fill up a whole pm box weekly.

+1. I must be an idiot, as I've provoked his ire on more than a few occasions... and I'm sort of unsure why, and it quickly devolves to, quite literally, name-calling. Even in non-CE threads. I agree he's quite smart, though I have my disagreements with him, but I don't even bother to interact with him anymore because I can't get a genuine response that isn't simultaneously intended to belittle me.

Given that he's been sent to the corner twice now in ~9 months, apparently I'm not the only one who feels that way.

No, I wouldn't mean to imply that. I was thinking of a few specific discussions, so my comments should not be read too broadly.

"Goat Screw: Ever tried to screw a goat? Neither have I. But imagine the commotion and confusion and you get the idea. See also, Cluster Fuck." Seems to come from Marine Corps parlance.

^^^^ Thank you. The resources styleforum can bring to bear on any given question is simply staggering.

I can't see "goatscrew" and not think "goatse." I'd post a pic, but that would land me firmly in randallr land.
