| Now i understand what you meant.

  No, you don't, and you know it, too, from the way you react.  For
  someone who wants to be regarded as so smart as you _need_ to be,
  you're doing an appalling job of "getting" anything that doesn't
  agree completely with your view of the world.  This isn't smart,
  regardless of the vocabulary used to express your problems, but
  neither is it a surprise, of course, considering that you're doing
  an amazingly good job of showing everyone that your head has gone
  bad.  A very useful diagnostic tool for people like you is to prod
  them with some contrary information or form and watch them not get
  it at all, neither humor nor actual message.

| it is exactly this kind of insolent thoughts mythically expressed
| that makes a large proportion of your posts tiring and time wasting
| to plod through.

  I'm very pleased that you expend the effort both to read my posts
  and write your exquisite responses to them.

| it is also why you are loathed and kill-filed by many.  your
| behavior is a wayward idiotic behavior of dubious value if not
| downright putrid that death is a suitable remedy.

  You're the expert, but I still need to point out to you that the
  contrary information you are _unable_ to grasp is that I, unlike
  you, also make technical contributions appreciated by many.

| have you not heard Arthur Clarke's pop quote about ignorance & magic?

  No, but I have, of course, heard his "pop quote" about sufficiently
  advanced technology and magic.  As far as I know, he has never made
  any "quotes", pop or not, about ignorance and magic.  Are you over
  your head in literary references you don't master, again?

  BTW, my spoof of said quote goes:

Sufficiently advanced political correctness is indistinguishable from sarcasm.

| what a scarred monster your are.  i'm _so_ amused by your tomfoolery
| of puerile baseness.  take your suicide fixation home and make it a
| reality, ok?

  What was that four-letter word you used again?  "LAME", was it?

  My cat leaves stinkier turds than you can post, Xah, and she bites
  with real teeth and scratches with real claws.

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
