It's really hard to take any of this seriously knowing that in the not so distant past you actually were so wounded by something I said in a post that you sent me private messages to further attack me, then reported ME for offending you. What cowardice and insecurity were you admitting to by reporting someone for saying something that hurt your feelings?I'm sorry you feel that way, Dave.
I don't believe you even addressed the query I posted to another poster, Wendell.
Nor has anyone else, including Wendell, who started this debate with his post #49 and his latest attempt to silence those he disagrees with.
I remain strong in my position, but remain open to other's ideas, if they are not afraid to state them and support them with facts and logic.
But I will continue to defend that position, and am not responsible for individuals' emotional reactions.
Those that choose to put my posts on ignore merely reveal their own cowardice and insecurities, and admit to such by doing so.
That's their own issues, not mine.
Your opinion, however irrelevant it may be, is not the real problem here. The real issue is your pedantic obsession with arguing for the sake of argument. Especially in a thread like this. The intellectual high horse you routinely envision yourself on is a figment of your imagination. You made whatever point you were trying to get across, just let it go.
