| It does not, btw, indicate either way how you effect lurkers but I have

  Lurkers write me all the time to tell me they appreciate something I have
  written.  Do you seriously think that I would ignore the insanely hostile
  rantings and ravings of you feel-good jerks if it were not for a constant
  flow of appreciation?  The fact is that you, Erann Gat, and the other
  extremely hostile people do nothing but destroy this environment.
  Without your stupid ranting and raving about my behavior, there would be
  approximately 5% as much noise as there currently is.  Your incessant
  need to tell people how they should feel and speculate on how others are
  feeling when they can handle themselves just fine is so goddamn insane
  that you cannot be taken seriously.

| Life is full of things that can not be proven by logic, my confidence in

  Of course you are.  You keep claiming things about me that are so insane
  as to be impossible, and you obviously do this with the confidence of a
  madman who has long since rejected reality.

| FWIW, my desire is not for people to be nice, it is for them to not be
| assholes.

  You never speak out against the people who are assholes towards me, so
  this is so unspeakably unjust that you really come across as one of the
  most unethical people I know of.

| And there is nothing condescending about ceasing a discussion that is a
| dead-end and calling a discussion dead-end is not a value judgement on
| the participants so your perception of condescension comes from yourself
| not me.

  Was there any part of what I wrote that you had any comprehension
  problems with?  Why do you repeat what I said in a way that suggests I
  did not say it?  You are such a /dishonest/ jerk.  I said "I find" about
  how I saw your behavior.  What on earth are you thinking with to manage
  to have to repeat this the way you do?  You are so goddamn /indecent/.
  Of all the people on this newsgroup who keep attacking me, you are
  certainly one of the worst assholes.  *PUKE*
