    The best thing to do now is to repeat your self stated inability to perceive that which you have been shown before. And have been re-re-shown before. I made repeated attempts to discuss the actual topic with you and you clearly had no interest in that. Preferring to first foist then later illustrate what "histrionics" actually means. As well as dishonest editing of "tone" later. After you had made the mistake of whining about "tone" . As you concluded days ago, my capacity to spot and call your BS? Does not leave you feeling satisfied much less as if you presented any persuasive debate or argument otherwise. And I get that. I really do. You poor thing.

    So you would like to discuss the topic then? The last point was whether property rights should be prevalent over societal concerns, you have yet to make a counter point.

    My money is on you trying to bring up anything except the actual topic though.

    As well you know, my "money" was on the fact, several days ago, that all these days later? For a series of tissue thin excuses you would still be asking me to hold your hand and link you up to post you lacked the intestinal fortitude to address the first and second, sometimes third time? Let me guess, you think I was wrong and you are a real interwebz "winner" somehow? Imagine that.

    I mean sure he spent the last few pages dodging and dodging and dodging. But kill people? I hardly think that level of (I hope) sophistry is necessary to quell what is obviously so farcical.
    You got me

    People reacted to those spikes as though there actually were armed men exicuting homeless.

    No, killing homeless isn't an answer, but protesting buisnissess who take steps to keep homeless people away isn't an answer either.

    I wish I had bet real money.

    Poor thing. You probably (but who knows?) meant you wish you had "bet" for yourself to just dodge dodge dodge for an extended period of time. In which case you would have won! YAY! Then you could have claimed it was for a set of "principals" you cleaved to, rather than the "irrelevant" principals of private property rights. Your words. Of course as you explained before, the right of private property owners is second to a "compassionate environment" for the homeless. As if the homeless are being hunted down and executed in London.

    If you don't want to discuss the topic (or any topic for that matter, so it seems), what is your purpose here?

    Re: Tesco removes one-inch 'anti-homeless' spikes from outside central London Metro s

    Points of debate brought up on this thread (because the topic is interesting and I want to try to get it back on track)

    How strong should property rights be in a case like this? Especially versus societal treatment of the homeless.

    Was it a good idea to close down the asylums in the 80s and should we bring them back?

    Stuff brought up by the OP (will I will quote for convenience)

    Two thoughts

    1. Tesco screwed up, they should have put a planter or a nice display there to make it both visually attractive (thus increasing their store value) and achieving their goal.
    2. Good, until society can figure out how to better deal with the homeless issue, putting obstacles that may result in injury in the way is barbaric. I hope protests continue until spikes are gone from all locations.

    Please expand on your idea that societal concerns outweigh property rights. How far would you take that?

    Is it OK for somebody to take something because they need it?
