Oh, also apparently using words like "antithesis" means you think too much of yourself. Kids these days, I feel the school system has failed in my country somewhere along the line.
I don't know to what extent you're assuming that was their reason and how much they spelt it out, but if someone told me they thought you were full of yourself my first guess would be that they'd met you. Everything about the way you express yourself screams pomp - or rather clears its throat, teases a greasy lock of hair to one side and gives a stuttering speech on the subject.
You seem pretentious because when you use 'big words' your sentences seem to fall apart; you express yourself in this stilted, waffling way that's about as far away from being genuine as it's possible to be. The impression you give off is of someone trying really, really hard to seem intellectual. There's nothing technically inaccurate about the way you use language, at least not always, but when another word would have been so much more elegant than the one you chose it's hard to see how you came to your choice naturally. You're like a five year old hosting Blue Peter
, plucking some pasta-glitter monstrosity from under your desk to show to a cooing audience. Except, you know, you're not five, and it's not cute. And, in this case, the audience is only cooing because it's the OoT and everyone here has a serious mental condition.
Now, some people might say I'm jumping to conclusions. @#%^ those people. Sure, it's possible that you're simply an atrocious communicator and that, analogously, you took evocation as your barred school when you rolled up in your mother's womb. Yes, it's true that I've limited my exposure to you out of respect for my humanity. What makes me so sure, though, is, uh.... well, pretty much everything else you do here.
From the cries of SCIENCE! to s@#%^ing at someone because they haven't read the classics - many of which, incidentally, are such pot-boiler trash that I have trouble believing anyone clinging to them as some bastion of quality literature is doing so out of anything but a desire to make themselves seem culture. You might scream SCIENCE!, but whenever some scientific issue comes up for discussion it's clear you don't know or understand sh*t. Whenever you involve yourself in debate, your deficiencies become blinding. You're something absurd: a scenester for science, an odious pseudo-intellectual fraudulently passing himself off as the real thing. And you know what? No-one's impressed. No-one thinks you're cool, probably not even Kalivha. And that's sad.
Anyway, that's just what I think.
