So in your universe "I did a little Googling" and doing a search are not the
same thing huh? You're not thinking this through, are you.
Let me get this straight. You jumped into this thread just to whine and
snivel about how what a swine I am, and you did a Google search on me, but
you maintain that *I* am the one who is upset?
At some level even you must understand why this is laughably unconvincing.
I haven't done *any* searches on you, sunshine, I couldn't care less where
you post or who you argue with or anything else about you. All I need to
know is you get kind of childish when someone mocks you online, and that's
not something most grownups would want said about them, is it.
Again, Boytoy, you followed me to this thread, remember? So *logically* the
guy who does web searches on people is probably the one with emotional
issues, isn't he.
*Very* believable, you could probably fool almost any five-year-old with
that line. But at least you've admitted that you're still pissed off over
whatever it was I disagree with you about, that's progress of a sort.
You guys almost follow a script, don't you. You know, you guys who like to
get into little flame wars online and who then react badly when it doesn't
go like they wanted. You all do Google searches looking for something to
use as a weapon, you all claim to be bored at some point (but you always
come back again and again). Maybe it's a franchise and you have corporate
rules to follow.
Neither big nor bad, Boytoy, you wouldn't have made a 3rd class trainee back
in the old days of Usenet. Seriously, to get as cranky as you are over some
petty disrespect in a newsgroup, that's really odd. Ways to get you? What
is this, Grade Five?
Oh hardly, but I was around to see the really serious trolls do their work,
so I developed a thick enough skin not to get all teary over someone flaming
me. It's just pixels on a screen, to take it as personally as you are is,
well, a bit odd. Maybe you were teased a lot at school when you were a kid
or something and you never got over that.
Again, you're following me around calling me names, but you insist I'm the
one who qualifies as an asshole--perhaps at some some the irony of that
situation will occur to you.
No, you're not a troll. It's quite obvious that you suffer from a severe
form of Last-word-itis. Last-word-itis sufferers have to have the final word
either by typing online or in a spoken venue. Normally, Last-word-itis
victims suffer from an excess of ego. That's certainly not true in your
case. Your ego is so fragile that the only way you can bolster it is to have
the last word everywhere. This assumed victory on your part is the only
reason you haven't yet experienced a complete and total mental breakdown.
I commiserate with you. I too suffered from Last-word-itis, but my illness
wasn't nearly as severe as yours. With the aid of a good woman, I was
instructed in better uses for my fingers and my tongue. I approached this
education with great zeal and shortly after she started teaching me, she
pronounced me cured. I've since gone on to a Masters and then a Ph.D.
And yet here you are, after informing the world just days ago that you were
done with me, here you are again, and with the added comic bonus of a
lecture on how you no longer want to have the last word. Where else can one
get this sort of entertainment for free?
LOL.. Devvy is looking for respect. He wants to be admired.
Problem is, that the only way he seems to be able to elevate himself,
is by standing on somebody..IOW, he tries and tries.
NOW he's trying to pull rank by claiming to be the NON-PLUS-ULTRA
How insecure can one be?
Are you really that dense? I was responding to your harshness and lack of
sensitivity. Your words above. Being so cavalier must mean that you don't
make mistakes like your hypothetical person above. That's where my rant came
from. Hope you never have to deal with a similar situation.
In my state, incarceration is way cheaper. In 2003, we paid $2.5 billion to
lock up 148,000 inmates. That's a bit over $17,000 per inmate per year.
Further, virtually all of the inmates are drug free upon release.
There are two national drug treatment facilities. One in Ft Worth, the other
in Leavenworth. The BEST success rate for these national centers (drug-free
after being released for one year) is six percent. Compare this to the 30%
of released criminals who do not return to prison and you'll see that jail
has a better outcome than treatment for addiciton.
Plus, putting people in prison for extended terms actually SAVES the
taxpayer money in reduced crime.
