You are entitled to your opinion. Opinions are like assholes -- we all have one. However, I feel it appropriate to point out that you confused my actual contempt for your base behaviour with meaningless and unintended 'style'.

You cannot do anything about my delivery. I suggest you focus on your own contemptible behaviour if you actually want to achieve anything.

Ditto.

Someone who wants to learn or to be helped. Who'd want to listen to someone like you rant?

Mikito was the one who chimed in with the snarky response instead of just ignoring Juan's request like almost everybody else did. He brought himself into it before I even entered the field.

Of course, I would not suggest anyone ignore snarky answers. Instead, I would suggest everyone appreciate their humour. A sense of humour is very important. If you ever get one, you will know exactly what I am talking about, and until then, there is no point my trying to explain it further.

If you find me intolerable, you don't have to go to all the trouble of ignoring Juan's plea for help, criticising my helpful response and asking Juan to harm himself. You can just tell me you find me intolerable if it will make you feel better, or you can have your newsreader filter everything I write so that you don't have to tolerate me at all.

> I'm sure Juan doesn't need you to make his decisions

I didn't ask Juan to let me make any of his decisions. You asked him to let you make his decision. You asked him to harm himself to suit some emotional need you have, and I find that contemptible. Don't you?

There now. That's better, isn't it? Received on Wed Jul 02 2003 - 17:25:15 CDT
