Reading comprehension, or the lack thereof...

Somehow, with my latest sticky where I re-explained why we weren't using the nomenclature "self-improvement" for the subreddit, everybody went off half cocked and assumed that somehow that meant the discussion shouldn't include self improvement as a topic of discussion.

I have to assume that everybody commenting either has no reading comprehension or it is an organized influx of users from elsewhere rushing in to purposefully misinterpret what I said to clog up the works with nonsense.

So instead of sending individual bans, I'm posting a public comment right here:

If your direct response to me was something along the lines of "but I liked talking about self-improvement" then you have just received a one-day ban.

During this 24-hours, you now have the goal of self-improving, starting with your reading comprehension. I suggest reading the sidebar.

I'll make it easy for you, directly from my post:

Sure, self-improvement is one aspect of our discussion. But make no mistake, the sort of self-improvement we're doing here isn't the kind that satisfies our feminized culture. We aren't just working out our biceps and calling it a day. We're working out our minds, we're gorging on information that is labelled "hate" for lack of a better criticism against it.

To re-iterate:

There will be no change to /r/theredpill's focus of discussion.

That's right. It will stay exactly the way it's been since we started. A discussion on sexual strategy.

To review on concern trolling:

A person who posts in the guise of "concern," to disrupt dialogue or undermine morale by pointing out that posters and/or the site may be losing quality, changing, or appear offensive to others. They point out problems that don't really exist to create an illusion to others that the problems exist. The intent is to derail, stifle, control, the dialogue.

And my favorite definition by /u/whisper:

Basically, someone who assumes you are sane, tries to understand your argument in the most compelling interpretation he can, and then tries to refute it, is a debater.

Someone who assumes you are insane, or tries to find weak interpretations of your arguments that will be easy to refute, or reifies metaphors, is a troll.

If you go off half cocked on these and display an inability to read or comprehend what is written, I will assume you are either an intentional troll, or a half-wit.
