zeal∑ot /ˈzɛlət/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[zel-uht] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation –noun 1.a person who shows zeal. 2.an excessively zealous person; fanatic. 3.(initial capital letter) a member of a radical, warlike, ardently patriotic group of Jews in Judea, particularly prominent from a.d. 69 to 81, advocating the violent overthrow of Roman rule and vigorously resisting the efforts of the Romans and their supporters to heathenize the Jews.

But the definition of zealot is not simply "a zealous person".
Stop playing semantic games.

Do you show zeal? Do you show "fervor for a person, cause, or object; eager desire or endeavor; enthusiastic diligence; ardor."? According to your posts, you do.

What is the noun form of one who shows zeal?

It's a zealot. Get a grip.

As if Chipcom meant "1. a person who shows zeal", and did not mean, "2. an excessively zealous person; fanatic."

Please. You know better. You are playing the sophistic game of acting as if Chipcom meant (1) when you know he meant (2).

If I'm wrong, Chipcom can correct me and I will be happy to apologize.

I, in fact, don't know exactly what Chipcom meant.

Here is what I inferred as his meaning:
Yes, we know, vc is everything - especially when you are so very eager and ardent about advocating VC.

You can pick whichever definition tickles your little heart, HH, you fit two out of the three...maybe even three out of three...are you Jewish by chance?

Serge, what is so very amusing is that you constantly find yourself in "semantic" arguments because you have such great difficulty communicating like normal people do. When coupled with an apparent need to "always be right," it makes for some spectacular threads wherein folks can watch you tie yourself into knots as you unsuccessfully attempt to "win."

Even more amusing is watching your contortions while people so VERY obviously play with you, using your own words to point out your flawed "reasoning" (often coupled with numerous Headspeakô gyrations. The fact that you cannot see that you're repeatedly being played like a fiddle is astounding.
Yes, my feelings were hurt by that, post, Pete. But I am not insulted by Chipcom's and Bek's inane comments.

As far as being played, I know and I don't care. I don't understand why people choose to spend their time doing that, but I use it as an opportunity to expand and clarify on my position, including working out the inevitable inconsistencies and problems that you and others take so much odd delight in finding, no matter how insignificant with respect to the overall relevant issues they may be.

So that's who you were referring to when you said "you morons". I feel a little left out.

Another lie.



Why do you think that your inconsistent claims/outright fabrications are inevitable?

Speaking of credibility Serge, I guess this is the second time that you've gloated about "ignoring" me, while responding to me. Do you need some help with the ignore function? I'm sure someone with a little computer savvy could walk you through it.
Here's the problem. How much of the above is serious, how much is "playing" me? Is any of it serious? Who knows? Back on ignore you go.

Killing me softly with his semantic sophistry

I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style,
And so I came to answer his questions for a while.
And there he was this young boy, stranger to my eyes,
Strumming my pain with his pedantry,
Mocking my polls with his words,
Taking my posts out of context,
Killing me softly with his posts,
Summing my whole belief system with his words,
Killing me softly with his semantic sophistry.
I felt all flushed with fever,
Embarrassed by the crowd,
I felt he found all my threads and read each one out loud.
I prayed that he would finish,
But he just kept right on strumming my pain with his pedantry,
Mocking my polls with his words,
Taking my posts out of context,
Killing me softly with his posts,
Summing my whole belief system with his words,
Killing me softly with his semantic sophistry.

is that 'gap hunting', or talking to radio shock jockeys about how bicyclists should be liscensed?

you humor me, head. rabid foresterites would be merely pathetic if they weren't so insidiously and damagingly anti-populist towards the rest of the bicycling community.
