Here is the point:* You are a rude guy who needs to clean up his act.* I have no knowledge of your background.* But a lot of the characteristics you show on this board suggest that you lack both a good education and, especially, a good upbringing.* *

This will be my last post directed to you, for the time being.

That'd be very nice but really unnecessary. Your comments are the usual lightweight crap one expects from a reader of the national enquirer.

Sorry i'm late. Busy morning.

So Jeffy...in your prior analogy, i'm a little unclear on one thing.

Are you the fly or are you the garbage truck?

Very confusing.

By the way, are you related to Tony2005 by any chance?

In any case, I take the commentary very seriously, I assure you. Clearly remarks from someone I dont know or know anything about are key as I lack self approval and need confirmation from others, just like several other folks in the vicinity



It also doesnt matter if I was raised and educated by weasels and beavers. I'm a more successful person than you are, or ever will be, and I dont even need to know anything about you to assure that!

As far as the above dialog, I guess I've got a bad reputation, and like the usual hockey player with a bad rep, the crowd is expecting something and finds it even when its not there.

Certainly the second and third man into a fight are the ones most noticed.

However, in keeping with my poor educational background, may I offer a comment that I think outlines the primary issue?

"When the wise man points at the moon, the fool looks at the finger."

A lot of looking at the finger here.

Jeffy, look at this finger!

Fair to middling effort. Pre coffee while I was making cornmeal flapjacks and bacon for the wife and baby and getting ready to head out and install my solar gable fan.

A reasonable level of committment for a bargain basement troll in a snitty thread thats really much ado about nutting...
