You continue to have this expectation to change me? Why do you continue?


I'm trying to get you to see what it takes to be a reasonable human. When you start an argument by subverting your own seriousness (the funny spelling of the names) you become a clown. Why not just say what you really think? Like erip said: bring your own thoughts to the game. Sourcing from Wikipedia and any other web page is just intellectual masturbation. I've been to sites where they demand sourcing of opinions. To me, this is a diversionary tactic. People who can't think for themselves, and need some 'expert' to tell them what is true. Total fucktards. Incapable of free thought.

Anyone raised in the south knows that "bless your heart" is how bitchy old ladies say, "you idiot." It's the epitome of "snark."

Which means all posts containing "bless your heart" should be summarily deleted.

How the game of tag changes as you age. It is impossible to change people's minds on a good day so why are you people even bothering with Mohican? Can't you tell by his posts that his mind is made up? Why reason with someone who bathes in a tub of bias and reads history books while wishing upon a star?

The world thrives because it is filled with variety, that includes variety of opinion.

No problem.

Mohican's threads are like McDonald's when you're on the road.

Not very good -- but at least you know what you're going to get.

If it's strictly for sport did I commit a foul? I'm always doing that.

Well, unlike any real sport -- Mo's a player AND a referee.

And it's in his court -- so to speak.

You'll only know you've committed a foul when you get that service message upon logging in. It's been a while for me, but I think it said: after careful consideration you've been banned for a period of three months. 😀

For all my jokes Mo is a pretty tolerant guy (these days). I think he's feeling like: what's the point of enforcing strict rules when we can't even get ten people to log in at the same time, and the administration is MIA.

I can understand a need for rules when there are a couple hundred people floating around, but this... well, this is not even enough to feed the chickens.
