Study of people who use the terms toofer, troofer, or twoofer

I am doing a study of people who use the terms toofer, troofer, or twoofer relative to those who question the events of 911.

If you do use those terms it would be interesting if you could just post your age, education level, and place of residence.

I do not typically use those terms, but am fascinated by what type of "study" you are doing.

Let's hear the methodology.

Nice to see you're doing something as equally constructive as ever. I've never used those words so, sorry Tony, I can't be of help.

I do wonder how your engineering background fits into this. I can't wait to see the results of your study.

Maybe these terms are used because 9/11 truth is a movement of dumbed down lies

Does that included 9/11 truthers.

It would be better if you did a study of why you believe the inside job CD fantasy based on zero evidence.

Why does a failed movement based on lies call itself 9/11 truth? That would be the better study.

When you take a break from your important "study", feel free to stop back in to metabunk to finish the last chain you started. I made it easy for you to find that chain by including a link in my signature.

Tony, for balance, why don't you include in you study people who call others "dickhead", "dick" and "shill ass" when they don't share your delusion that you can see the WTC7 east wall in videos that clearly show the north wall only? You could differentiate between those who admit to the stupidity of their claim when shown how foolishly wrong they were and apologize sincerely for the insults, and those who NEVER EVER admit that they stand corrected and feel shame.

What would the point of the study be?
"People who use the term 'troofer' are more likely to live in Kansas. But some of them live in other places".
What possible benefit would such a conclusion have to anyone?

I usually use "truther" spelled correctly, sometimes with scare quotes. 52, (mostly useless) BA in history, BS in mechanical engineering technology. My location is shown to the left.

That's undoubtedly part of it. I think he's also hoping to show that people who use those terms are immature and/or uneducated, in an attempt to delegitimize criticism of the "truth" movement.

I use the words "truther style" or "birther style" to describe the statements made by people who underline their claims or put the word "fact" (usually in caps) next to it as a substitute for actual evidence. This usually applies to people who think 9/11 was not an inside job but use that kind of bankrupt reasoning for other arguments.

I'm a high school grad with a single year of college whose grades I'm ashamed to show to anyone. But I did make it through the Navy's nuclear power school thinking it was rather easy.

I'm also interested in your methodology. Thanks.

Yeah, this.

It might be interesting if we had a non-partisan researcher look into this, and compare it to the uses of terms like "sheeple", "Statist", "Bushie-lover" and the like.

Or perhaps "lone-nutter" as one of our current posters likes to call people in the JFK thread.

59, BA in education (83), MA in National Security (05), northern Virginia. I prefer "douche nozzle", personally, but to each their own.

Still, it's good to see that the ridiculously absurd approach the douche nozzles use as their chosen manner of trying to convey some...*any* kind of intellectual prowess in this whole thing is right on par with no-planes and sooper-silent bombs and laser-destructo beams from space. Don't be anything if not consistent.

Old enough, BS in engineering (74), MS in engineering 82, west coast Sierra foothills. A truthful term for "9/11 truthers", liars. 9/11 truthers, make up or believe lies about 9/11 and spread them without thinking. "douche nozzle" works.

Was the catalyst for the study related to CH3−CH2−OH. Is the study done.

Quote:
those who question the events of 911
Is that like those who question the Score/Who won the Super Bowl? How do you question an event? How many planes? Four. How many were involved in the act causing the destruction? 19. Why did they do it? Spoiled Saudi wanted to kill Americans and he fooled 19 idiots who are almost as gullible as 9/11 truth believers.

Questions are easy to answer. Tony, who did your fantasy based CD inside job? Why can't you answer questions Tony. Have you found the jolt?

I don't bother with this "fight", but like Dave... I'll post just because I haven't changed my sig in eons.

No Tony, sadly, but I've still got Dusty in there (ignore the goblins).

I'm tempted to answer - all the info has been posted here before anyway - but am interested in the nature of the study before doing so, Tony. And to the others, not sure the use of terms like morons is really appropriate or necessary, no matter what we might think of them.

I don't recall having used any the terms stated in the OP in the way that the OP asks. I remember having used the term "twoof" (just like I'm doing right now) to comment about the word itself.

I use the term "twoofer" interchangeably with "self-deluded moron" and as a euphemism for "Certified member of The Stupidati"

There is no 'study'. It's just a drive-by dig of Tony's, trying to suggest that people who use those words are young and uneducated.

^^ Seems pretty obviously this.

If not, I hate the term 'truther' and its variants and never use it myself unless referring to the use of the word, like now. It's simply a tribal chant to say, 'You don't need to worry about why, all you need to know is that this person is wrong about everything! As others have said, exactly the same is true of things like 'sheeple' and 'shill' from the other side. Useless, cheerleading crap.

My 'qualifications': Highschool dropout (not a joke). This probably won't surprise too many on here!

I don't particularly use the terms in the OP, but I do loathe the misappropriation of the word 'truth' by people who have no idea what it is or how to look for it. They invite mockery on themselves by proclaiming their undeserved moral superiority so loudly and so falsely.

If you do use those terms it would be interesting if you could just post your age, education level, and place of residence.
I do not. I do not find it productive.

HE doesn't need to do a study.

THESE are not the results he was looking for.
