Is it because I don't use big words? Is it because I am stating the way that I view world events? Is it because I don't agree with 98% of the other posters here?
What is it exactly that you find so obnoxious?
It is not because you do not use big words. I do not use big words either.
And as I mentioned, it is not because you are stating your world views. As I said, I would defend your right to do that.
And it is not because you do not agree with others -- because McG, I do not agree with the vast majority of people in A2K on various subjects.
It is because you are rude, unnecessarily mean-spirited, immature, and intemperate in your remarks.
Perhaps all that bothers me because I occasionally am rude, unnecessarily mean-spirited, and intemperate in my remarks -- and I find that...unattractive...in myself.
My advice holds. Grow up. It really is not painful.
