Of course you don't care. Why would you want to understand what other people are talking about? You already know everything important anyway.

I am responding to crap from cowards who pile-on with insults in a flame war. I do not relish being attacked, or having this sort of argument.

My disinterest in "sock puppets" is not indicative of a disinterest in others opinions.

I'm not sure I've ever found incessant whining and self-pity so flabbergastingly entertaining.

I've figured out Huck's true identity. He's none other than Nathan Thurm.

The problem with your comparison there is that Nathan never admits he made a mistake, and I readily acknowledged my misstep. The bizarre behavior was your petty, childish attempt to make a federal case out of a tiny incident, a fart in the wind.

I am amused at Huck's ability to prolong a fart.

well, a little more than a fart, there may have been some staining.

I have no wish to prolong, as long as the unfair accusations keep coming, I keep answering.

Hence, prolonging the whole thing. Other people might want to just let the whole thing drop and move on. But not you. As long as anybody's trying to keep your fuckup in the spotlight, you're happy to help.

Now you are weighing-in to make insults and prolong, while complaining about prolonging.

Nobody wants their mistakes in the spotlight. I am not the one who made a federal case out of a tiny incident.

It wasn't in the poll, but I would have to say that Zachary Taylor's win over Martin Van Buren was devastating. How a Whig party candidate beat out the Free Soil party is beyond me. I don't think our country has been the same since.

You misunderstand. I'm fine with having your fuckup stay front and center. I'm okay with prolonging this. I'm at a loss why YOU want to give it longer legs, but hey. Your choice.

Yes, I know you enjoy prolonging it. Notice that very few people commented at all on this small incident, that's because most people are mature. It is the same handful of petty jackals, of which you are one of the more zealous, who relish a festival of personal cheap shots.

Damn. I feel chastened. It's almost as if I made a poor and tasteless joke about mass murder or something.

But I haven't been punished enough. You better beat me up some more.

I take issue with this. The joke was tasteless to some, but it wasn't so poor. I give it a C-. It wasn't meant as a hah-hah joke, it was a colorful illustration, and I think there is something to build on here for future attempts. Accent the positive, I say.

ps. Where do you stand on Ed Gein jokes? Do you run from the room screaming BLOODY MASS MURDER!
