I learned about these things a long time ago.
1. This is SUPPOSED to be a discussion thread. It was for quite a while. People are allowed to have different views and if you had bothered to read all the posts, then you would know that I defended my point of view -- which DID start out with "I wonder" -- all along, even silencing the gainsayers.
The civil discussion was finished.
2. It has turned into a bash thread the last several posts, by people who DIDN'T start out to have a discussion by any stretch of the imagination. Their SOLE purpose for being at the end of this thread is to come in at the feeding frenzy of insults to ONE sole, lone poster.
That's the behavior of bullies, cowards and gutless wonders who only venture forth in packs, like howling hyenas, all excited about the kill.
3. People like that are the bottom-feeders of this site. You know that because they have nothing to ADD to the discussion. They have ONLY insults, name-calling and puerile graphics.
That SHOWS their thinking....upbring, manners and character, or lack of them. Their families must be so proud of them. < sarc. >
4. These posters go on my ignore list.
5. The ridiculous and hilarious part is that THEY won't remember months from now.
I will reply to something with which they TOTALLY agree and they will give me the "high fives" and such. It's absurd that they spew their venom and hate with such alacrity and then FORGET whom they insulted. Ricidulous!
They CAN'T be so
stupid careless and short-sighted to believe that I won't remember, can they? Rhetorical because they CAN be so.
Naturally, I won't respond because I am more orderly in my thinking. I KNOW where those posters come from, but they scatter their insults and toilet mouths with such frivolity, carelessness and amazing quantity that they FORGET whom they insult.
I treat them like poisonous spiders. I avoid them. I keep my eye on them and steer clear but I don't engage.
One doesn't hate these people because what they write is simply part of their nature. They can't seem to be anything else.
Undoubtedly they are more to be pitied than anything else.
As I wrote above, one hopes they don't breed.
You seem like a classic abuser, and that's why you have your knickers in such a twist. You must have gone too long without kicking a puppy or stepping on a baby chick.
Please, go get yourself some professional help.
Have you stopped beating your wife yet?
...are you still talking?
