Where better to discuss issues than a coffee-house. It's what coffee-houses were invented for. It's what they are
They are also a private enterprise with no " Constitutional rights of acess" except that of the good will of the owner, proprietess and the mass of customers. SO for one of the "welcomed" clientele(spendius) to attempt to dictate what the others must endure is not within these agreements. You are a customer and a "Guest", subject to all the requirementrs of good behavior so that, shouldthe proprietess state that person "X" or "Y" is unwelcome, you just have to help her carry out her wishes.
She has done so and I think Id like to remind you of your own good behavior. YOU seem to be the only person who still has the insane one not on ignore. I, for one, find it annoying to be even reminded of the insane ones existence by reference, so I propose that itd be a really simple matter to extend the same courtesy to you should you wish to usurp the house rules of "welcome" so stated by the owner. You at least dont take yourself that seriously as does the "I O" (insane one)
The IO has been reminded several times to start his (or her) own threads and bay at the moon and cast insults at passersby on that thread. HE wishes to make a boor of him9her)self and suffers an almost exclusive banishment by virtue of "no follow on responses" by folks of common sense.
This has been a place of fellowship and good manners (with the exception of the IO's rants), which is a continuing pathological characteristic he displays although he fails to recognize the pathology.
Its too bad because, IO is apparently lacking in the minimal intellectual and social skills by which to even begin a discourse on the topic with which he (she) is so obsessed.
Almost everyone here has attempted a reasonable discussion train with the IO one at one time or another. WIth him, should you disgaree with even one point ofhis theses, you become bait for rudeness and insult. I personally wont put up with behavior of a mindless OCD twelve year old who is probably the rudest person in these fora. (That in itself is an attainment for him to brag onbecause as he must recognize by now,fewer and fewer people are even going to waste time in any discussion
. Hes in an ever incresing spiral of non-0existence so hes having no effect.He tries to bait folks with seemingly reasonable initial contacts, only to turn into a raving loon when the person first states "Now hold on" ..."I cant agree with that last statement"
I spend time on A2K all for fun and relaxation, the IO doesnt understand that theres nothing that requires adherance to his one-horse "babblings". I assume that hes probably getting increasingly strident from the mere number of dead posts to which noone responds.
