  Yes, and it appears to be in strong need of repeating to some people.

  I'm missing the part where you explain why I should care what you think.

  But that is not my opinion, you fucking idiot.  Of course, you are so
  monumentally stupid that you think you can legitimately "disagree" what
  somebody else's opinion is, right?  The one person you would never listen
  to is the person you have made up your mind what thinks, right?  Such is
  the nature of the stupidity that I have a very strong distaste for, yet
  you guys are so fantastically retarded that you are not even aware of
  your stupidity.

  Anyone intelligent enough to read, knows that your crap here is only your
  own lack of intellect showing through, because I disagree with you _and_
  because you _are_ unintelligent.  These are quite unrelated facts.  The
  need for you retards to keep repeating this point makes me believe that
  it is a powerful self-defense mechanism.  "No, no, I'm not stupid, I'm
  just disagreeing with gravity and physics in general."

  You _are_ the hostile environment around here.  Please die, Stefan.  And,
  please, make as little noise about your exit as possible.  That, too, is
  off-topic here, you see.  The other option, to start thinking, is of
  course completely irrelevant to even _suggest_ to something like you.
  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
