I told you way earlier in this thread that I was not interested in
playing your rhetorical games. when you go back and answer thoughtfully
to the best of your ability the questions I have posed to you over the
last week or so, then I will give you the same courtesy.

I am not ashamed of anything except that I have actually gotten sucked
into this pissing match with you. But you will only have my attention
for one more round of messages so make sure your next one covers the
issues in the previous paragraph or there will be no more responses for
me. We can agree to disagree that your snide remarks are either trolling
or rhetorical, whatever you want, but seriously dude, something is up
with you lately...

Peter, I'd have to go back in my archives sometime to dig it up but my
gut feeling is that it dates to about the time suzmccarth started
posting. Whether she is the cause, or if it is coincidental, or if there
is some other reason, for those of us out here in listland, the change
in your overall tone and helpfulness has been dramatic. I am sorry to
point it out to you, but maybe someday you will look inside instead of
lashing out and come back to this message. No response needed or
necessary as that was not an invitation for discussion or debate, just a
personal observation and a well-being wish for you....
