Mainly, your post was reading like no one had any problem with you, and that's simply not true, and I wanted to put it on record in case some people were thinking of joining but saw some of your posts and thought uh-oh, that kind of post is ok with everyone here, maybe I won't join. (I'm sure people have trouble with my posting style sometimes, too, but I felt like I had to respond to that post for the sake of others).!
I do have problems with how you post, buti don't consider that you engage even in "troll-like" behavior. You are human like the rest of us, and we all have our smarmy moments.
But here's what I think is really a despicable act on your part. Do you have any support for the accusation that "some people might not join because of my posts"? Do you? Because that charge is otherwise bullshit and underhanded. It's floating a charge while consciously creating an escape hatch based on, "well it MIGHT be the case" so you can make the charge and protest how it's not underhanded at the same time. And you're not immune to that any more than me or anyone else is.
Gee, maybe someone read your posts and decided not to join. Or maybe they've read Mitch's posts and decided not to join. It's a "prove they didn't" type of argument, and I resent your casting it my way.
Anyone can look at my posts and see the amount of thought that went into them, and certainly there are some that are a shot in response to a shot taken at me, none of them are indicative of troll like. And for the record, I came in here partly because I liked spongebobs posts and saw your conflict with him as a red flag about YOU,especially since it resulted in him leaving and thus it looked like you were the queen bee that decided who stayed and who didn't here (And no,i know its not the case, but when first here as a noob, thats still what it looked like to me). So, physician, heal the beam in thy own eye, to happily conflate different scriptural references.
