    I've seen hundreds of situations where people apologized for minor
    infractions beforehand. Ever have someone trying to get past you say
    "excuse me" or "pardon me" before brushing past you?

    You are way, way too anal about this. You were wrong, and all of your
    arguments to the contrary won't change that.

    That's not necessarily an infraction.

    No, you were wrong, and all of your false analogies to the contrary won't
    change that.

    Abraham Lincoln once said "When one man calls you a jackass, think nothing
    of it. When ten men call you a jackass, it's time to check to see if you're
    wearing a saddle."

    Nobody is on your side.

    Have a nice day.

    You have to be at least the third or fourth twit who has commited that
    particular fallacy even after I keep pointing it out and even identifying it
    for you lot (argumentum ad numerum). And you people wonder why you have no
    credibility.

    The only thing that has cost me any credibility here is arguing with a fool.

    All done. Have a nice day.

    Oh, you ARE a silly, SILLY little boy.

    The only one here who has been wounded is you - every single time you post, if
    only you were not so blind to your own, many faults.

    Er, no.

    That's not possible, since I have only ever stuck to the one, correct line
    of argument. I don't care if you don't like that.

    This picking sides stuff is so schoolyard. In fact,
    that's the raison d'etre for the original post in
    this thread -- rallying 'everybody else' against DRS.
    It's not good.

    Anyhow, I choose to blame retrograde Mercury for the
    current screw-ups in communications & transportation.
    Astrologers have it this is a time when what we
    intend to mean is likely to be misconstrued, and we
    might thoughtlessly blurt stuff we otherwise wouldn't,
    in a clumsier manner than we'd like.

    Hey, it's as good a scapegoat as any.

    We'll all supposed to start to get back to normal,
    come Sept 2nd. In the meantime, it might help to temper
    our stronger opinions with respect for other people's
    differing ideas, consider what we say before we say it,
    and to be as forgiving as we'd want to be forgiven for
    our own occasional badly mis-worded statements (I know
    I've suffered foot-in-mouth disease more than once.)

    Come to think of it, that might work all the time,
    despite astrological razmatazz.


    I wish everyone well, and to have good rides,
    Tom

    Sheesh. *Another* idiot who thinks there's a relationship between the truth
    of a proposition and the number of people who believe it to be true. Is
    there no end to this roll call of stupidity?

    You know, if you're going to pretend to be trying to hose things down it's a
    really bad idea to make snide sidewipes like that.
