    It's been my experience that those individuals who feel the need to persistently and vocally defend themselves are often the most insecure among us...

    Intellect speaks for itself and does not require petty sparring.
    Craftsmanship speaks for itself and does not require the testimony of Randy Rarick.

    Does the Ocean need to yell, "I am wet!" when someone claims it to be dry. Of course not.

    "Re ipsa loquitur" - The thing speaks for itself.

    People post their opinions, I post mine.

    One could just as sensibly argue that all people who post opinions are trying to 'force' other people to adopt theirs.

    As for winning, I'm already winning and have been for a very long time, a few negative opinions can't change that.

    How am I mistaken? I said I "think" which implies opinion and not stating fact. Also, your board has never been in east coast swell, so you really have no proof. Ego and lack of reading comprehension. You have it all.

    if you were winning then you would not be trolling the internet forcing your surfboard threads back to the top of the list everytime people have all but forgotten about them.

    so, I'd say you are winning no more or less then everyone else in this thread.

    No one's fighting here Roy. It's okay buddy, this is a safe place. In the therapy circle we’re free to be ourselves and just let it all out. You say you came here because of Steve, whom you've only met online. Are you sure that Steve is real buddy?

    Quote Originally Posted by Roy Stuart View Post

    But, you've never actually met him, right? There's no proof that he exists outside of your own mind, right? Everyone here keeps telling you that Steve is not real. All we know is that Steve has a beard and makes boards just like you, that's right isn't it Roy?

    Quote Originally Posted by Roy Stuart View Post

    So you have a beard and make very unique, wooden boards?

    Quote Originally Posted by Roy Stuart View Post

    Well, there can’t be that many. People who make unique, wooden surfboards that is. There are lots of people with beards. Isn’t it possible Roy that you and Steve might be the same person?

    Really Roy are you sure?

    Roy, I think I speak for everyone when I say that we’re genuinely concerned about your belief that Steve is real.

    Quote Originally Posted by Roy Stuart View Post

    Speak for yourself.
    Okay Roy, no problem. I’m genuinely concerned about your belief that Steve is real.

    That’s what I’m getting at Roy, who is posting what pictures and what videos? Steve isn’t real.

    Boards that are like no other surfboards on Earth, but are exactly like your boards Roy? And who’s Tom Roy, we were talking about Steve.

    Roy, when you look in the mirror each morning, who’s staring back at you, Roy or Steve?

    Stay with me Roy, we’re talking about you and Steve now not surfboards.

    Steve’s not here Roy, neither are any Swaylocks trolls. We’re talking about you now. Focus

    What claims Roy? Who are they Roy? Roy did you not take your medication this morning? NURSE RATCHET! Did the patient get his medication this morning? He Did!
    Roy, let’s stick to the matter at hand.

    I hope that helps.
    No, not too much. Roy when did you start communicating with Steve?

    Now we’re getting somewhere! Roy don’t you see, you created Steve.

    No Roy, he’s a figment of your imagination, that’s why you committed yourself here to Sunnyvale Sanatorium for treatment , don’t you remember? You’ve been here for 10 years!

    Your treatment of Steve is pathetic.
    Roy, we’re trying to help you.

    Thanks Roy I think we made some real progress today. Nice Nurse Ratchet will take you back to your room now and we'll continue this next week. Nurse Ratchet, I think that we’re done for today.

    No offense to Roy or Steve, this is just satire and is meant only for some solipsistic-chic, laughs.

    I came here to answer your questions.

    Steve is a fellow in the USA who built a wooden surfboard.


    No one's fighting here Roy.

    Indeed, it was not I who suggested that a fight is going on.





    Are you sure that Steve is real buddy?
    Cartesian scepticism suggests that only one's own existence can be known with certainty.





    But, you've never actually met him, right?
    That depends upon one's definition of 'met'.




    There's no proof that he exists outside of your own mind, right?


    That is correct as far as intellectual proof goes, but the same applies to everything which you treat as real within your own experience.




    Everyone here keeps telling you that Steve is not real.
    That is not correct, only a small number of active members or what we both assume are active members are claiming that Steve is not real.



    All we know is that Steve has a beard and makes boards just like you, that's right isn't it Roy?


    According to the standard which you asked me to apply to my belief that Steve is real you know no such thing.




    So you have a beard and make very unique, wooden boards?

    Yes however I can't prove this to you if I apply the standards of Cartesian scepticism.


    Well, there can’t be that many. People who make unique, wooden surfboards that is. There are lots of people with beards. Isn’t it possible Roy that you and Steve might be the same person?

    It is not possible.



    Really Roy are you sure?
    Quite sure thank you.




    Roy, I think I speak for everyone when I say that we’re genuinely concerned about your belief that Steve is real.

    Thankyou... however I am concerned that you feel that belonging to a small group of those who believe or pretend to believe that Steve is not real means that therefore everyone shares your belief.



    Okay Roy, no problem. I’m genuinely concerned about your belief that Steve is real.

    Tell it to Steve, he might be able to relieve you of your concern.




    That’s what I’m getting at Roy, who is posting what pictures and what videos?

    Find out via investigation if you so desire.




    Steve isn’t real.


    A Steve denier tut tut.



    Boards that are like no other surfboards on Earth, but are exactly like your boards Roy?


    Steve's board is not exactly like mine, and he has as far as we know made only one board which is similar to mine and which uses my construction method.



    And who’s Tom Roy, we were talking about Steve.

    There are many Toms in this world and perhaps even in other worlds, and yes i know that you are talking about Steve.


    Roy, when you look in the mirror each morning, who’s staring back at you, Roy or Steve?

    My days of looking in the mirror are long gone.



    Stay with me Roy, we’re talking about you and Steve now not surfboards.

    You post what you like and I'll post what I like.



    Steve’s not here Roy
    How can you be sure of this?



    We’re talking about you now. Focus
    I don't need to focus in order for you to talk.



    Roy when did you start communicating with Steve?
    When Steve posted his board pictures on the Treetosea forum.



    Roy don’t you see, you created Steve.
    No, the GAOTU did that.



    No Roy, he’s a figment of your imagination.
    I suggest that you read the writings of Bishop Berkeley.


    Roy, we’re trying to help you.

    As long as you enjoy your activities I suggest that you continue.



    No offense to Roy or Steve, this is just satire and is meant only for some solipsistic-chic, laughs.
    Don't you mean Roy/Steve or are you recanting?

    I wish Roy/Steve would surf that board at folly already. If there are no pics and ride report after this weekend, we will know for sure that he doesn't exist.
