Not only is my post easier to read, it's actually useful.
I really think you need some type of therapy before you plunge further of the deep end
I am angry. Angry that events have transpired that lead me to write this statement. I assume you already know that smc4175 is chomping at the bit for a chance to destabilize society, but I have something more important to tell you.
Smc4175's methods are much subtler now than ever before. Smc4175 is more adept at hidden mind control and its techniques of social brainwash are much more appealingly streamlined and homogenized. Smc4175's imprecations are built on lies and they depend on make-believe for their continuation. Smc4175's put-downs leave me with several unanswered questions: Whatever happened to good sportsmanship? And why does it insist on boring holes in the hull of the boat in which it itself is also a passenger? These are difficult questions to answer because it ignores the most basic ground rule of debate. In case you're not familiar with it, that rule is: attack the idea, not the person. Now that this letter has come to an end, I hope you walk away from it realizing that I have nothing more to say on that issue.
EDIT: yes slackjaw, I will derail this thread to neather-regions of the forums and place it into the forum abyss where it belongs; not because I am a "fanboi" .... because I CAN! LOL.
There are some comments I need to make regarding BAD BAD CerealKillerSD. Although my approach may appear a bit pedantic, by setting some generative point of view against a structural-taxonomical point of view or vice versa, I intend to argue that BAD BAD CerealKillerSD is inherently tendentious, balmy, and anal-retentive. Oh, and it also has a batty mode of existence. BAD BAD CerealKillerSD's victims have been speaking out for years. Unfortunately, their voices have long been silenced by the roar and thunder of BAD BAD CerealKillerSD's encomiasts, who loudly proclaim that those who disagree with BAD BAD CerealKillerSD should be cast into the outer darkness, should be shunned, should starve. Regardless of those thrasonical proclamations, the truth is that what we're involved in with it is not a game. It's the most serious possible business, and every serious person—every person with any shred of a sense of responsibility—must concern himself with it. To reiterate the main message of this letter, for some strange reason, BAD BAD CerealKillerSD is worried it'll be disenfranchised and shunned by the most contumelious goof-offs you'll ever see.
