Here is the crux of Finn's complaint,
No, that isn't it at all, Ed. Finn's complaint, completely justified, was that GlitterBag leveled a completely gratuitous shot at him for a pretty damn neutral comment on the TV mob boss. She ignored a Farmerman comment that was much more "disrespectful" than anything Finn had said.
She railed on at Finn,
"Are you absolutely sure one of his kids will never google their fathers name and find this ignorant group of assholes talking about a man none of us knows, but because it was newsworthy enough to be reported, some of you drop in just to insult each other and critique his skills."
when, as I said, Farmer was doing as much or more critiquing as Finn. But she just had to get in her namedropping story, which may have made her feel she was to be the grand defender.
And you know what? - that probably wouldn't have bothered Finn at all. What really got his gall was the 'sandbox bullshit" that Farmer pulled. It was as cheap a shot as I've seen here at A2K. Of course, Rockhead leaped into the sandbox too. Why? Because it was Finn! That's the only ******* reason and it was just a bunch of pile on chickenshits.
In this specific situation, Finn was dead right, it most assuredly was "mindless objection". Finn had every reason to expect Farmer to, at the very least, step up and allow that he had been doing what Finn did - he did it earlier and stronger.
But Farmerman took the chickenshit route. Instead of stepping up to the plate, he ran back to the sandbox where all his playmates were.
That was the crux of Finn's complaint.
