I never realizwd that Finn considered himself so much a pariah. I think hes just tired of taking verbal abuse for a recent thread he started in which he got his spelling wrong and never said "oops I fucked up"--He just went out swinging at his detractors in a "class action dust-up"
Howwver, thats another post . However, Naming yourself , together with folks like Frankie, and coldjoint as "reasonable" is a hoot.(I dont think "reasonable" is a word that comes to mind IMHO)
Frank and Coldjoint, are not missed by me , but not for reasons of how they fielded their arguments. They just get boring with their single tricks and interminable "Last line insults" (No class at all from those two).
Many of the Conservative side do "do their homework" quite well. McGentrix, Georgeob, Roger,and oralloy come to mind. IM sure there are others. Finnsy too, is usually on the point, he just has a silly habit of getting into these silly fights over relatively small points of his or others theses.
...AND..., as Setanta once said, "We are all conservative about one or more issues"
Ill add to that by saying, very few of us buy the entire pitcher of Kool aid, that full blood Conservatives or Liberals are accused of. Theres a lot of "you people... " crap.
In my observation, Youve gone because you had been publically admonished and are now trying to make your "Time out" as a bigger deal than it really was and are exiting ,while engaging in rather childish pointing of fingers as a final act. (Not too classy).
Then to exclaim that "you know too much" is a bigger hoot. I never knew that this was industril espionage in action.
There are lots of folks of liberal stripe whove left because they felt that this site had a minyan of conservatives on most days.
Im glad for one thing, I now know that Cold joint has gone and I can take him off ignore.
I do wish you well , and I hope you find what youre looking for in a chat room.
