In response to mef429's comment:
JB has pertty much hit the nail on the head. no need to argue with him PG. just go look through all of bills blather threads and see the responses he gets. THE FORUM, is fed up with him and has been for awhile. Hell, BDC banned him twice because they were fed up with him too!
you get what you give and posters like Bill, softlaw, ADG, (not so much this year) Geo and to a lesser extent you PG. all deserve the criticism their posts receive for the most part.
you are what your record says you are and posters like these do not have a good one (generally speaking. because if you put your record up against Softys then you look like floyd mayweather). the proof is out there for all to see and the rest of us can tell who is an idiot and who is not. If these posters did not want to get obliterated by facts they would put forth more effort into incorporating fact into their posts and not ignorance.
Some say a storm is coming, Some say the end is near.
Some think it's all so hazy, I think it's all so clear.
Some say they have the answers, some say they know the truth.
Some people live in question, some people have no clue.
If there was no tomorrow, if there was just today.
would you make different choices? or would you stay the same?
I am not going to argue with Breidey, MEF, because its like argueing with the wall. We just have different opinions on how to approach posts we find strange. I tend to gloss over them and move on; Breidey thinks its fine to go after the poster. He actually identified five posters here, including me, who he feels are fair game for his "ridicule"-NOTE: he did not say that he intended to ridicule our POSTS, he named US five as fair game as individuals. Thats the way he has behaved since well before I showed up at this forum. I try very hard to respect other posters here as long as they respect me, and if Breidey ever decided to respect me (he won't) I would treat him in a similar manner. Bill, Geo, ADG, and Softy do not go after other posters like Breidey does, to their credit. Yes, they sometimes (or maybe frequently) post drivel, but thats easy enough to gloss over. What I find much more offensive is the personal crap perpetrated by some posters in response to a post. Feel free to disagree.
