Jerry - what is wrong with him?

I can't help but wonder - was Jerry's new year resolution to be even more
pedantic than last year? Every thread I read on this forum that extends to
any sort of in-depth debate always seems to have him chiming in with his
usual "I'm right, you are all wrong" attitude, closely followed by abuse
when questioned or pointed out (often with indisputable fact)that he is
wrong.
Personally, I'd like to see him do what has been suggested in another thread
just recently - if he's so good, then show us all his layout and just how
perfect it is, so we can bow to the master! From previous comments he's
made, he must have the ability to host the photos - which will invariably be
a better quality than anyone else's and be placed on a far superior,
quicker-accessing website with thumbnails at exactly the right resolution
unlike anyone else's - yet I rather suspect he has no layout at all, I
suspect rather than prove me wrong he will reply with verbal diharrhoea
(sp?), I suspect I will be slated for grammar, syntax and spelling, I
suspect he will retort with some clap-trap about having nothing to prove,
but I know one thing - he'll be right and I'll be wrong!

See how he goes very quiet when challenged to put up or shut up!
He's the same in every group he visits. I say visit, as he invariably doesn't stay long.

I have no idea; his comments are automagically marked as read by a filter on my newsreader. I don't like doing that with people who are not obvious trolls, but the endless nitpicking wound me up too much.

They ?feed? off your anger etc.In a way I feel sorry for them but the best hope of a ?cure? is not to reply to their posts or even read them !Sometimes they do have something valid to say but unfortunately this soon turns into the normal slanging match.I had a similar experience with a guy called Larry on another forum. He set out he was a ?Wordsmith? and walking dictionary if you like but when I challenged him he resorted to verbal abuse. It was his medical condition for the most part but he did have a nasty streak in him and if you ever did prove him wrong he ?hid? behind his condition.

Its not just them its also those that try to win by their methods. So many people demand the loser publicly admit defeat as well as equate having the last word as being the winner.
I know when have won an arguement or reached a stalemate so thats the time to stop. If someone else continues with spurious arguements or snappy comments in an attempt to wind up the discussion - just think of a fish out of water flapping about.
Hence Jerry doesnt bother me and can enjoy his contribution when relevant or humerous.
Cheers, Simon

He doesn't bother me either, but if he or anyone else did there's always the 'block sender' option.
In the main I think Jerry makes some useful contributions to this group; but he'd certainly be more appreciated if he wasn't quite so pedantic and offensive at times. The internet is like that though, and would be a lot less colourful without the likes of him.
