How do you deal with the so called "Know It All"?

On DD the biggest Know-it-alls are Ozoneocean, Bravo1102 and Isukun.

Interesting list, but I can tell you there is one name on there that doesn't surprise me in the least… ;)

Personally, I break my “know-it-all's” into two categories: credentialed know-it-all's and non-credentialed know-it-all's.

You probably wouldn't want to take my advice on the non-credentialed know-it-all's. I have a feeling I'm even more immature about it than ayes due to the fact that I end up making enemies with them. I can't help it though, when I'm talking to them I tend to end up mocking them. And it's worse because know-it-all's are slow to pick up on that sort of thing (everything is taken seriously). In the end, it just turns into a giant ragefest, which you don't want.

Credentialed know-it-all's however? I've run into hundreds of them in college. The only thing you can do there is to stay quiet and nod your head. Seriously, their mind is in a whole other plane of existence and you'd be powerless to fight them let alone know how to get there.

I was playing an MMORPG once when I met a seasoned player who was insulting new players… to the effect of telling them to leave as the game was for “pros” only.
Ahhh, the classic elitist.

In games they're usually easily handled. I usually poke fun at them by picking out the flaws in their rants (since in the MMOs I've played I've been around the block once or twice) or simply making fun of their mom. .. Yeah, I know. “Yo mama” jokes are the lowest common denominator in terms of jokes but in my experience, they usually get elitists super pissed. I mean they're trying to lecture me on why I'm bad and why they're so awesome and here I am not only refusing them the satisfaction of a reaction but I'm making fun of their mom.

Real life though isn't nearly as cut and dry. I just attempt to avoid those kinds of people. It'll save you a lot of headaches.

DEAR JESUS IT WILL BE THE DEATH OF US ALL.

I hang around friends who are know-it-alls or are very very stubborn, its their way or the high way, and it pisses them off to know end when I prove them wrong or don't agree with them. Mind you, only two of us are major know-it-alls, me and my friend Ellen, and we clash the most about it.
of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most.

My brother is a genius with a god complex, the most basic kind of know-it-all. I haven't had the luxury of just “walking away” from that relationship over the years, we're family. So I've learned to deal with it.

Poor fellow has such superiority issues, at times it's really grating. I've learned not to really emotionally invest myself much in what he says. Oftentimes he'll show a complete disregard for others.

With the super intelligent types it's better to just smile while they are looking, and roll your eyes while they are not.* We all have flaws and shortcomings, but this kind of person has a harder time hiding them is all. Don't get me wrong, I love my brother. I've even learned to enjoy listening to him talk over the years. But I don't really pin my hopes on him stooping down to mingle with us common homo sapiens. People that are intelligent and arrogant cannot be cured by others, so don't waste your time trying.

As for the other kind of know-it-all (the stupid and superior one's), give them a firm rebuff and walk away. Racism is a classic (though very extreme) example of this kind of know-it-all behavior. I believe a false sense of superiority can be cured in a person, but I don't believe it's necessary most of the time.

There's a man I used to work with who was dumber than a bag of bricks. I'm not trying to flatter my own ego here, he really was just good ol' country stoopid. But he had such a sense of entitlement it was incredible. God forbid you contradict this man. In his own eyes, he was Chuck Norris.

His kind of know-it-all ego was repulsive, yes. But it wasn't necessarily harmful. In his case his co-workers mostly just walked away from him in disgust.

Apparently, another proven method is to send the KnowItAlls over to Comic Fury and trash that site…..as was the case with Filthy Assistant and MrWeatherby.

It was SO efficient I packed up and moved here.

I've still been trying to figure out who Filthy Assistant and MrWeatherby are from DD. Mr Larry (was that his name?) and Le Farce?

It helped that you were banned from there too :P I know that was snarky but it had to be done XD

you constantly harassed female posters, homosexuals, and made endless disparaging remarks about people that weren't white

you got banned for once again accusing everyone who came from drunk duck (mind you, normal people not asshole problem users like me) for “throwing around their gayness” in part of your un ending attacks on people who don't fit your idea of a straight white male, or white submissive female who nay has a though of her own.

oh and called this place a shithole numerous times making it incredibly ironic that you have decided to plant your god-complex bullshit here

You complain about cheap shots yet you're the one who's always making them. You got banned for your terrible attitude and trashy comments(and I imagine making 6 thinly veiled advertisement threads despite being asked not to sped it up) Stop blaming others when you're the one with the problem.

And it's so ridiculous that you're here after you kept going on and on about how much you hate DD and that it's filled with sociopaths and gays.

I'm still here, there just hasn't been any reason to actually post until now. Over at CF though we just ban our know-it-alls and send them over here. It's a vicious cycle. The Know-it-All Trade, as it were.

I find it funny that he came to a website to get away from ‘those DDers’ and not only do myself, weatherby, and marlowe post but mr.lostman(fuego) is here too.

The final scene sees Filthy and Weatherby scraping the bottom of empty bean cans in a cold apartment, sitting atop crates, the only furniture they have left. “Filthy, we're going be alright, aren't we?” Weatherby asks.

“I'm not sure,” says Filthy. The candle between them flickers once more before a cool gust of air extinguishes it. Fade to black.

But fret not fans!

Sitting on their crates, Filthy and Weatherby are beginning to accept it's the end, when crashing through the door…

“IT'S MARLOWE!” They both shout.

“Did you guys miss me?” He says, “I got rich in hollywood and I'm here to take you two wacky oddjobs to the big city! And this is my manager, Skullbie!”

Marlowe, Skullbie, Filthy, and Weatherby hit the big city in “Marlowe and Friends.”

No no no, you got it all wrong, Marlowe would star in his own spin-off.

I don't even visit CF but at a guess from prvious posts and what DDers have said:

mr weatherby- Lefarce.
lostman- Same as he was here… oh and also a new account here now (just checked).
marlowe- Larry
filthy assistant- Tater Salad.

-Does the necessary research-

We try to be tolerant to people around here and that goes both ways. Don't throw mud around and nobody has a reason to throw it back.

So let's keep the cleanup cost to the minimum.
Those were my two cents.
