    I just disagree with your style and methods, I suppose. They grate.
    Well id use different ones but these are the easiest and most direct and effective.
    I have told CC that I wish i had his patience with dealing with those types of people. And while occasionally i will try his style, typically i just dont care that much.

    In real life im super patient, i do a lot of work with kids (6-18) besides my real job and what not but here, if i wast to much time, I could miss a REAL conversation or one actually interesting or factually etc.

    The New Enemies Lists - Charles Krauthammer, Washington Post

    ". . . . I had not foreseen how donor lists would be used not to ferret out corruption but to pursue and persecute citizens with contrary views. Which corrupts the very idea of full disclosure. It is now an invitation to the creation of enemies lists. Containing, for example, Brendan Eich, forced to resign as Mozilla CEO when it was disclosed that six years earlier he’d given $1,000 to support a referendum banning gay marriage. He was hardly the first. Activists compiled blacklists of donors to Proposition 8 and went after them. Indeed, shortly after the referendum passed, both the artistic director of the California Musical Theatre in Sacramento and the president of the Los Angeles Film Festival were hounded out of office. . . .
