Good try, but you have to show a little more care in these situations. Dialog is actually both a transitive and an intransitive verb, and Dawn used it as an intransitive verb.

Stupid is a word that describes people who lack the ability to learn simple concepts and abstractions.

The horseshit could be a symptom of stupidity or of ignorance or of misinformation. Since I have already debunked the horseshit Dawn writes and since I have already explained the correct concepts to her, I have to rule out ignorance and misinformation in her case.

I really do not care what the idiots do--especially the vociferous ones. I am more interested in guiding the intelligent but possibly misinformed or uninformed individual to pursue legitimate sources of information and to ignore the stupidity that flows so freely from the PICK crowd among others.

Indeed. Enjoy the holidays! Received on Thu Dec 18 2003 - 12:46:53 CST
