Note how according to the stalker "not willing to accept" the RM (which the jerk took care to leave out) is "the very definition of closed-minded"-ness.

Brilliant phraseology. So?

Man, am I rude! BTW I am so ignorant I had to look up "temerity": Unreasonable or foolhardy contempt of danger; rashness.

I (according to the hiding stalker) am so rude, that one needs "Unreasonable or foolhardy contempt of danger" to even note it.

Yeah, Bollocks, stalker!

Bollocks, stalker! Accepting different points of view does not require willingness to accept one particular POV, in casu RM.

BB-fans (as the jerk claims not to read this), feel free to elaborate.

Nice "explanation". I cannot be "simultaneously closed-minded and humble". I cannot even engage in public dialogue with the one who writes this shit. No, I'll give it this point. Its expectation was right on the mark. Is it happy now? I don't expect so.

The stalker lies. It's a rhetoric lie, but a lie nevertheless.

No. They are acts by ignorants. Self-indulgent, disrespectful, rude, yes, but ignorant. The stalker willingly dumped that excuse.
