In the same fashion that I always thought I was right...I took what you had to say, thought about where I could be wrong and what I could do to improve myself and my interractions....maybe you're willing to take my advice here and take a look at how it is YOU post and present yourself. I only say this to help you better yourself, as you did for me.
Think of it this way: you know how they always say the old, white Republicans are so "out-of-touch"? That's how you come across to people who aren't accustomed to your methods. I am not "throwing you under the bus" or turning my back on you...but like with the gays thing, I do not agree that there is "blame to go around". I cannot fault MDR or Sloppy for what those individuals chose to do, and that's where I stand!
Nothin but love for ya buddy, even when we disagree.
It's nothing personal dude, I hope you know I like you...and I will support what's right, but I cannot hold ANYONE accountable for the ACCIDENT at MDR other than the people who were standing on the race course... If THEY (those who were injured/died) had CHOSEN to spectate from a safe distance, this wouldn't have ever been talked about, other than "Sloppy's epic crash".
I personally can take the "logic" you deal in, because not only am I used to it, but you helped me understand it...but it alienates others. I mean, if we were discussing quantum physics and nuclear fission, I would expect the level of conversation to be of the highest intellect....but man, it's an off road racing forum. It's viewed as condescending in many instances. I have respect and admiration for you, but your techniques of interracting with others could be, well, simplified a little.
Why did you feel the need to personally attack me, rather than confront the concepts presented? You commit an ad hominem fallacy in doing so.
(This may help you avoid such failures in the future:
I've generally enjoyed your posts here and on DR over the years, but am confused as to the above, as well as your reference to a "limerick", when I saw no connection to the term, or its definition, earlier.
Thanks for the compliment, but it takes little wit to Google a word, even "limerick."
Plenty of emoticons available:
and your favorite:
Oh, you win, got me there! Congrats on your wittiness once again! You are the superior one as always! (If I could insert the picture of me rolling my eyes at this point I would...)
Nice limerick but I prefer to talk in standard every day run of the mill English.
Daryl, we have a place near Pozo but nothing around here comes close to simulating the desert. It's fun but not really valid as a test.
That email is long gone. You guys didn't scare me off. I was retiring at that time. I've been busy working at Lawrence Equipments race shop since then. Rarely have time to come on here anymore...Lol
As usual, always a pleasure having a civil discussion with you.
Good luck with your investments and future, I hope all goes well.
Have a good weekend.
