I also don't know why the sparring match needs to be, but the mention of 32 cases of shit was to inject some perspective based on fact. More facts:
Dino chose to address me as he did; i did not solicit his input. (#10550) I explained my reference and said, "Peace, dammit." He then escalated his attack.
My first post to Eric was to thank him for ending his feud with Andy (#10419). His response was to jump on me (#10422) and continue until i simply ignored him, giving him his precious "last word".
Luka's tried to bait me. (#10649) I ignored him, too.
It's not a matter of pride that i don't kiss butt; it's a matter of getting damned sick and tired of having my braids pulled by these bozos, let alone listening to someone else defend them, then blame it on my having braids. Frankly, people need a new hobby besides dissecting what makes Splintergroupie tick.
I've created limericks, traded poetry, offered free stuff, reconnected with Newf, resurrected John Galt, and sent a donation - all about trying to be a good citizen here and injecting some enthusiasm. I'm as content to leave this place as moribund as i found it if that's not good enough. I'm tired of pushing rope.
