  Oh, this is so great!  If someone should come out and agree with me,
  he's a troll!

  In other words, there is no way your statement could be falsified,
  because you dismiss contrary views outright.  I'm amazed that it is
  possible to think so little just because you feel belittled, but I'm
  beginning to think it's a feeling that happens mostly to those who
  deserve it, and the more they have to prove it, too.

  Any trolls here?

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
