So much for 'gaslighting.' It had it's 15 minutes of fame. Looks
like JW is going to be in 'goblin mode' for the foreseeable future. It
fits, too: a slang term describing "unapologetically self-indulgent,
lazy, slovenly, or greedy" behaviour.

Nah, it means claiming others say or mean what they did not
say or mean. It's your MO.

You sure are in 'goblin mode' today! Talk about a hipster. :-)

It's still true though, hipster or goblin notwithstanding.

Your gaslighting is true.

BB might be true and something else might be true.
Both undecided.
