Pathetic? Maybe, but you used the words "I defy you", you even cherry picked the threads I should check out that proves you never called anyone a liar. I got a little bored last night and decided to review the way to treat people who disagree with you. You claim Edgar infers you are a troll, infer is a weak word to use when you are claiming he actually called you a troll. And you used the 'infer' because you knew he didn't actually call you a troll. You also said ' I suspect I am the one you are referred to", you can't state that factually, you used suspect for reasons only you know. You did state repeatedly that Edgar doesn't like people disagreeing with him, despite the fact that you are able to deflate his views and he's too childish, resentful and refuses to surrender to you because he lacks common sense. You also crow about how amusing others weak minds are to you, how you laugh and toy with them.
Frank, all of these comments were make on the "troll" thread, you can check for yourself. You think I'm spineless? I already told you directly what I thought, but the only line you zeroed in on was when I described a situation where two people were busy calling "each other liars, lying liars" THATS what frosted you. You completely failed to take into consideration how carefully I expressed my frustration with people who dominate a thread by going on and on and on for pages effectively shutting out any room for anyone one else to post. You should have noticed something else in my rather lengthy posts which only asked can we not make everything so bitterly personal.
Actually Frank, I did say something to you on the Troll thread and I did it directly. I told you what I though, you were too worried about the word liar, you ignored the rest of my remarks and redirected me to more of your comments. When I reminded you I was expressing my opinion (asking sarcastically if I was still allowed to have an opinion) you did say you certainly hoped it didn't appear you were doing anything of the sort.
I don't know if you realize how energy draining it can be to "on command" be asked to reread your old posts so that I would be able to realize that everyone else is a jerk, except you. Well, I was bored last night, you defied me to read your posts and I did. You shouldn't have asked me to do that, because reading you for several eons, I didn't see a patient, respectful individual. You want me to be straight? I didn't find the man you claim to be, at least not in your writing.
I didn't think of you as a troll, I don't have either you or max on ignore. Some of your old conversations with CI were painful to read, and he wasn't much better. So after about 90 minutes I will never get back again, I responded to the totality of your interactions with a few members that others can bank on knowing how insulting you 'infer' they are. I wrote my post last night after indulging in the infallibility of your expression. I was frustrated and annoyed by your tone and your dismissiveness.
It didn't help that you called an earlier rebuke I gave you as bile-filled. I can only imagine what a wonderful childhood and life you must have had, to get so rattled about what I said, to take it so personally you called it bile-filled.
Please understand, I don't have a single reservation with the occasional disagreement or to addressing you personally. My honest take on this is you are much more thin-skinned than I could have imagined. If I thought you would take the time to actually read my entire post, instead of scouring it trying to ascertain how I must has insulted you in some fashion, maybe I would have approached it in a different way. Frank, if you are going to insist that someone read all of your prior responses, you might not be happy with the conclusions they draw. I also think you are probably a much better man in person than in print. I wish you would give others a chance to see you as a complete person.
