Could U please give it up? You have exposed yourself as a very disruptive member today. You are trolling the board, deleting your posts, editing other posts hours after you make them, and just not letting things die.. If you haven't figured it out by now, I'll clue you in -- nobody wants to hear you cry anymore.
The truth is the truth, no matter how much you try to twist my words -- it does not and will not change the truth. I have not abused people today. I have not been immoral nor have I been unsavory. I don't mind being challenged, I actually enjoy it. However, when I post facts - countering those facts with some half-ass opinion isn't much sport. You can't challenge facts with opinions. It's like bringing a toy slingshot to a gun fight.
I believe you are a loose cannon who is simultaneously instigating & perpetuating OT flame wars while constantly complaining about how your feelings are hurt. Here's a solution that might benefit all of us: Stop starting the flames and you won't feel the burn anymore. Buddy.
original version of post 21558:
Regarding your (thinly veiled) patronizing of my feelings, my posts today were in response to postyle's treatment of another poster and were not about feelings but about keeping the board, well, above board.
Also, there is a legit defense of postyle's attacks which is, "if you don't like it, tough luck". And that is a legitimate response. But at least have the courage to call it what it is. He's not "rough around the edges", not "gruff "or "blunt". He's abusive and it is not about the content, he is personal with it.
Speaking of patronizing, I have a theory that many posters patronize him because they are impressed with his facts and figures and don't want to be cut off or miss out. Many of the people who rec postyle's posts would never stand for that kind of behavior in real life. Can you imagine being talked to like that by the guy next to you in line at the grocery store? No, basically the few that call him on it as vocally as I have lately are "not playing along" by not humoring the bully. Buddy.
