Let him stay there for good and hide his face in shame what he did to those poor animals and people trying to survive in the Gulf.Maybe he will accidentally light up a cigar and fall asleep and bingo no more Tony Hayward.Wishful thinkingJ
I haven't posted this one in awhile, Chris, because I've permanently engaged Ignore This User to spare myself km's circular BS. But having read your km quote and your response, I know you'll appreciate my permanent homage to his Highness' tactics ~
_________________________ I always deserve it. Really.
Your usage of circular arguments, irrelevant appeals, evasion, ignoring direct questions, twisting of statements made by others and dogmatic defense of the indefensible makes it impossible to carry on an intelligent dialogue regarding this topic with you. That is too bad.
Welcome to the canteen, Chris . . . or, we're all bozos on this bus.
edit: Just in case, let me make clear what hermeneutic circle leads me to say "bus": the argument is circular, wheels are circular, wheels on a bus go round and round, we're on a bus. And as the Merry Pranksters used to say, you're on the bus or your off the bus. I'd suggest getting off the bus. It pollutes, and there's already enough of that.

Ditto that, gal. "Ignore-ance" is bliss. It cracks me up, though, that he'll still respond to us despite his screed being invisible on our respective screens. Oh wait... what he says is for the benefit of the whole forum. Like acne is for the benefit of the pharmacist.
BTW, it's His Minus. Gotta get that title right, y'know.

No I'd say the point is valid a fortiori because UC and Exxon suck and and BP don't but a viewpoint doesn't have to be right to be relevant, of course.
Relevance aside (since I wasn't talking about relevance), making a case that BP's response is great because on a scale of one to ten it doesn't score a zero doesn't really say much more than BP at least is going through the motions. Is that more than what UC or Exxon did? Sure. But what's the point? What makes UC or Exxon useful baselines for comparison?
As for Svanberg's use of "small people," I agree that his sentiment using a second language to him was honorable. English, however, is presumably not *your* second language ... so: nice bait =) Chum, chum, chum ... the water turns red ;-)

Gotta agree here. If you guys are nailing yourselves on the cross of supposedly ignoring KM, responding to what you think he might have said via secondary quotations from other posters is almost as much of a circle-jerk as the rest of these threads.
Either ignore him or don't. Trying to have it both ways just makes you look like you have no self control ;-)
I've seen stranger behaviour on teh internetz before. At least, I think I have. Truth is, I've never felt strongly that anyone deserves the ignore button. I like to think of it as adopting a reverse-Confucianismic mode. With reverb.
