IMHO: Anyone who takes themselves as seriously as you does not possess a sense of humor. Anyone who gets as defensive as you do over a little ribbing does not have a sense of humor. Anyone who rages as incessantly as you do has no funny bone. And anyone who hemorrhages like you do if a post doesn't precisely align with your thread is taking themselves way too seriously. Oops, back the beginning! <br><br>BTW, lady, I don't even have enough hair for a comb-over, so try again to show me how hilarious you are. <br><br>

She set's 'em up and you just knock 'em down, huh Steve? Why do you bother to open her threads, surely you have better things to do? Why not take a pass?<br><br>Besides didn't I hear you dispensing that kind of advice to us all when we're confronted with threads we disliked and instead you insist on lo-jacking this thread?<br><br><br>[color:red]I am not John Kerry and I made this ad.</font color=red>

It's my smug sarcasm-ism-itis. <br><br>I've never expressed any displeasure with these threads (though I've recorded my disagreement w/the originator's POV—as is my right). It ain't up to me — or any of us — who posts what. And in fact, I do avoid many threads that I don't care for.<br><br>The only one "lo-jacking" this thread (and others) is the author herself. Ignoring my attempt at a little levity in this instance would have preempted any further exchange on the spot — I'm not generally in the habit of replying to myself over and over again. But when the remarks get flat out nasty — yes, you better believe I'll knock 'em down as fast as they can be set up — until I get nailed or bored, which ever comes first. Right or wrong, my prerogative. So, with all due respect, I'll decide for myself which threads to ignore — as will you, I'm sure.<br><br>
