  I'm not interested in a discussion with people who behave the way you
  do.  I'm trying to show you why you need to rethink your position by
  making it painful to you to hold the position you do -- I have long
  since given up dealing with people who hold idiotic opinions as if
  they had arrived at them through thinking about them.  Exposre to pain
  restructures their response register in a way that arguments that they
  had to think about never would because thinking is what they do _not_
  engage in.  You do not have the observational skills or brains to
  recognize this, but instead think it's a "big ego-fest".  You are a
  waste of space and should be recycled.

  Solution to U.S. Presidential Election Crisis 2000:
    Let Texas secede from the Union and elect George W. Bush their
    very first President.  All parties, states would rejoice.
