Exactly Osso (if you will peek at this one too). That is the point.

I don't mind being ignored, if you don't like what someone has to say you have no obligation to respond. I am personally not annoyed with people I fundamentally disagree with. Often I will engage them.

What I don't like is the bullying... trying to prevent someone from being able to express their opinions. People accept bullying here... and they use the word "troll" to justify that. That is really the reason I felt like I had to stand up for the trolls here.

It is the bullying that is the real problem.

Using mocking sarcasm, to make a point. Very nicely done, Osso!

I am not sure which of us is being the troll here. But if it is me, you aren't listening to the article Nimh posted.

But just in case it isn't me, here is a thumbs up and a pat on the back.
