...thus necessarily your "gayish" side comment on the Thread interest in relation to its author is not only false but also intentionally misleading...
...now I seriously wonder what drives you on this ?
Personnel for no reason ?
Or is it the case that you and others like you have nothing else to do with your time but ad hominems ?
...and this because I can tell you that, undoubtedly, I usually find 90% of the participants in any forum whatsoever, intellectually inferior to the minimum requirements to impose any effort on my reasoning axiology, and nevertheless, I rarely comment their methods if not in reply to their own stupidity towards other participants...
...strange, i thought i was
responding to mark's treatment of other participants in the thread. mark is a provocateur
, and it's naive to expect every response to the sort of faux-controversy he delights in creating to be positive. To me, it seems as if mark noble's general MO is to: extend an extremely broad question , then reproach the people who take the time to respond with a grinning, "...or is it?", make a non sequitur mystical proclamation and then trot off as if he has won an argument. When someone does this as consistently as he does, i'm afraid that it falls into my general category of assholish behavior. Perhaps he thinks it's cute, but i find it annoying.
i'm confused about a lot of the content of your post. But of all the comments directed at me, i am probably most confused by the term "gayish." Are you saying that i'm gayish, and am i supposed to be insulted? Or am i supposed to have insinuated that mark was "gayish", because, honestly, the thought never occurred to me to do so. i find it weird that you read it that way.
mark had already signed off on this thread, having made his "point", and directed a little raspberry towards the cheap seats. i'm not entirely certain how my retort could be considered "misleading" since this thread was just about tied up until this last sudden burst of activity.
Have a fantabulous day, Fil.
