Flame Warrior Profile: ArmilnovAugust 14, 2007
During my travels through the blogosphere, I occasionally bump into a netizen whose posts deserve special recognition. And since I haven’t done one of my “Flame Warrior Profiles” in a while, I figured that I’m probably due for another one.
Today’s profile is for fellow WordPress political blogger armilnov, who appears to be a textbook Ferrous Cranus
- Ferrous Cranus
- Ferrous Cranus is utterly impervious to reason, persuasion and new ideas, and when engaged in battle he will not yield an inch in his position regardless of its hopelessness. Though his thrusts are decisively repulsed, his arguments crushed in every detail and his defenses demolished beyond repair he will remount the same attack again and again with only the slightest variation in tactics. Sometimes out of pure frustration Philosopher will try to explain to him the failed logistics of his situation, or Therapist will attempt to penetrate the psychological origins of his obduracy, but, ever unfathomable, Ferrous Cranus cannot be moved.
Armilnov received the honor primarily for the Cranus-like behavior in his insistence that DailyKos is worse than Al-Qaeda over on his blog, then later for his posts here in the Chamber. Just like Ferrous Cranus, no movement could be made no matter how much reason was applied to the wacky arguments that were presented. Had armilnov’s arguments been a little less, well, out there, he might have at least earned the Tireless Rebutter label. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be.
