| I understood what you said.  I just choose to be a bit silly in responding to

| sentences, and unproductive abuse.

  Then take a break and recover full operation of your intellect instead of
  posting silliness.  You have a choice here.

  Pay me for it, and I will.  Give me an intelligent response that makes it
  worth while, instead of some silly and moronic complaint, and you may be
  surprised, but whining losers who only demand are not worth spending much
  time on.  So here is the clue: Do not demand anything of others -- just _do_
  what you thinkk is the better thing.  Yet, you chose to be silly.  What more
  do I need to judge how your responses?  How much weight can a complaint about
  what others somehow fail to do have when it comes from someone who willfully
  chooses to be silly?  If you impress me with your clear thinking instead of
  annoy me with your silliness, and you will, in fact, receive a response in
  kind.  I may waste time on misbehaving children, but demanding children who
  cannot even do what they demand from others is generally fruitless -- most of
  the time, these children are not even able to grasp what they have received.
  Guide to non-spammers: If you want to send me a business proposal, please be
  specific and do not put "business proposal" in the Subject header.  If it is
  urgent, do not use the word "urgent".  If you need an immediate answer, give
  me a reason, do not shout "for your immediate attention".  Thank you.
