It's fun to read, fun to post, many interesting threads and I usually learn something but it doesn't make or break my day. But I've got to say this--AV, sometimes you can act like a big ol baby. If you are so tired of people slamming and smearing you then leave or ignore them. Quit asking them to find one of your posts where you did something wrong. No one cares that much. You say that all of your posts contain facts which a lot of them probably do (some contain your own opinions that you like to state are "accepted by the majority as fact"). However, the majority of your recent posts have been "Find one thing I did wrong" "I am forced to post because people are smearing me" "If you can't prove I'm wrong them man up and apologize" Why don't you just accept that some people will ALWAYS disagree with you no matter what they say. You could be the bigger person and ignore them you know?
I say don't ban him and let people decide on their own if they want to ignore or engage.
Except when is somebody who is being attacked wrong for defending himself? As you very much admit, it's been others smearing and attacking me. I'm choosing to stand up for myself because I'm strong enough to. I'm not a coward.
As for this idea that I have occasionally given statements that were not pure facts - sure, I sometimes give opinions. Since when is it a crime to given an opinion? I give facts, and then use those facts (and logic) to come to conclusions.
I don't pick on other posters. I don't smear other posters. I don't try to get a rise out of other posters. I have never done any of the things that I've been accused of, and the record backs that up. Nobody has found anything that I've done wrong.
Since, as you've admitted, it's been ME who has been the victim of the vicious attacks... why is jjoyce trying to ban ME?
