    Since your eleven quits weren't preceded by indignation and woe, feigned or otherwise, your count remains at zero. Nice try, though.

    You should've set that limit a lot lower, Fred. It appears to have been taken as an invitation for repeat performance.
    Online arguments are a lot like the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
    As soon as the audience begins to participate, any actual content is lost in the resulting chaos and cacophony.
    At that point, all you can do is laugh and enjoy the descent into debasement.

    Not directed personally towards you, Dreck.

    But somehow this reminds me of what the Apostle Paul's wrote in the bible:
    "If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone."

    I don't know.

    Some days... I tried to make a joke, make light of the situation, and here we are, spinning out of control. I may have to report this to the moderators.

    I go away for the weekend and look what happens.
    FWIW, I have been trying to ignore the classifieds in favor of the other posts as a matter of principle. Plus I canít buy more pens for a bit . . . I am enjoying it more. Nothing against classifieds, but they were getting overbalanced. I cured that by looking at them less.

    Pure coincidence or synchronicity; either way, unintentional, I think.

    I think the content is a bit more balanced today than before.
    At least I see some of us deliberately contribute with fun contents ... sometimes too much fun

    Yep. Here we go again. Believe me, I take no joy in being correct in this one. The self-deprecation to garner attention is truly exhausting.
