| So do I.

  My God!  Look at yourself!  You start them, you feed them, you do not
  quit.  I have to stop responding to you before you go away, again.

| What would you have me change?

  Stop being so fucking obnoxious and annoying, you pestering idiot.

| No, it isn't.  But since you are such an admirer or Erik's style I think
| I'll emulate it a bit and not explain why it's not a good point and just
| tell you to go think about it.

  You could not emulate my style if your life depended on it.  Quit making
  it my fault that you cannot behave the way you want me to behave.
