I’m pretty sure novasteve doesn’t believe a tenth of what he says.
He’s just saying it for comic relief. Much akin to the Saturday Night Live folks making fun of Fox and Friends. No one can that dumb.
He just deadpans indefinitely.
I think the alternative tactic of discussing dogs and recipes is much more fun and far more entertaining. And as NS falls more and more over the deep end, I chuckle more and more.
Can you people stop starting topics about me?I realize you are obsessed and have serious issues, b ut I’m asking you to stop.
There goes nova’s reading comprehension skills again.
The subject was our failed attempt at boycotting you.
See what I mean? No one can be this dumb.
Have to be honest – I agree with Steve on this one. No matter what you call it, this thread is about him. And frankly, that’s not right. If you don’t like what he says, don’t answer him. Simple as that.
Warm potato salads are a nice change from baked or roasted potatoes, and they seem more appropriate to the season than the cold, picnic-perfect versions do. They’re also a wonderful way to incorporate grains and beans into weeknight meals.
Here, I’ve paired potatoes with chickpeas. The dressing is a mix of slow-cooked garlic, olive oil, lemon and lots of parsley. I like to cook potatoes whole and unpeeled to preserve their nutrients, but if you’re in a hurry, you could start with peeled, cubed potatoes. Let the cooked cubes dry for a few minutes before combining with the dressing.
I agree with QTR – atleast NS generally talks about a point of view not other posters
yea QTR is right. Boooo on you Peon for starting this soon-to-be-closed thread. In fact, you also majorly trolled here complaining about a boycott…by breaking the boycott.
My favorite type of warm potato salad is an Austrian style-
1. Bring 2 pounds of baby fingerling potatoes, chicken broth, water, 1 teaspoon salt, sugar and 1 tablespoon vinegar to boil in 12-inch heavy-bottomed skillet over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until potatoes offer no resistance when pierced with paring knife, 15 to 17 minutes. Remove cover, increase heat to high (so cooking liquid will reduce), and cook 2 minutes.
2. Drain potatoes in colander set over large bowl, reserving cooking liquid. Set drained potatoes aside. Pour off and discard all but 1/2 cup cooking liquid (if 1/2 cup liquid does not remain, add water to make 1/2 cup). Whisk remaining tablespoon vinegar, mustard, and oil into cooking liquid.
3. Add 1/2 cup cooked potatoes to bowl with cooking liquid mixture and mash with potato masher or fork until thick sauce forms (mixture will be slightly chunky). Add remaining potatoes, onion, cornichons, and chives, folding gently with rubber spatula to combine. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I think NS’s request is not out of bounds. Threads should not be specifically created to discuss other posters. But, this thread was more to discuss a boycott, not the poster. (and, yes, I am splitting hairs).
On the other hand, during the give and take within “issue threads” it is understandable that the discussion often points to specific posters. This is no different than debaters questioning the credibility of their opponents to bolster their arguments. And, thus these two items (the issue at hand, and the poster presenting those issues) become intertwined.
Speaking of intertwined, has anyone ever breed boxturtles?
Actually, my point here was not to talk about ns, but to express my dismay that everyone else continues to read and post in his threads. I mean, it’s definitely none of my business, but I find those threads to be as useful as beating your head against the wall, so I was happy when it looked like people were going to make an effort to not get drawn in anymore.
I guess it’s like picking a scab. Gross, and you know it might be unhealthy, but you can’t resist anyway?
I agree with QTR here. I don’t participate in those threads and since many other people seem to complain about ns, I wonder why they participate.
I broke the boycott because he showed signs of lucidity. But it didn’t last.
I also tried to get through to him by using a satirical example of his own logic against him – and I even explicitly asked the moderators to let it through because it’s a satirical argument and clearly labeled as such, but no luck. Real hatred of certain groups is fine, but even satirical expressions of hatred against others meant to expose the original hatred don’t get through.
So steve can troll on.
