I see exactly the kind of hatred Ny talks about. We disagree on how universal it is.
You have Facebook friends who call for genocide?
I have facebook friends that think that upsetting their opponents makes something good.
Do they say they want all their political opponents to be killed?
Did Ny make such a claim? I've heard him say (in other threads, so I'm not sure why this is relevant to here) that people secretly wish for that, but I don't recall a claim that they've made statements along those lines.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

You did not rattle my cage. Just because someone replies to your posts does not mean they were rattled by you.

If you are trying to reduce the level of vitriol on this forum, you're not doing it right. For example, continued name-calling does not help your case.

Nonetheless, I am willing to cooperate with you on that. Are you willing?

I don't think you read my entire sentence, but I'm bowing out of this line of discussion based on Ny's preference--I can understand it might bristle to have people arguing with each other about what you say or think, so I'm finished with it.

Except I had read your entire sentence, where you seem to think Nyarl meant "secretly wish" when he clearly said "want".

Perhaps Ny might wish to clarify what he meant by that.

Since I have stated numerous times that what I am "angling" for is mutual cooperation to reduce the vitriol between you and me on this forum, then I see this 50-50 thing as possibly a good step in the right direction. The continued name-calling is not a step in the right direction.

I assume it is obvious to everyone here who needs to calm down.

And it ain't Lavern and Shirley.

Without the final "e" is the male name, though the other name is gender neutral.

Shirley, you know that. :p

It's not important right now. And don't call me Chief!

What's important is that Nyarl seems to have left the forum (again) and has accused me of running him off, which as anyone here can see is the complete opposite of the facts.

There are like 8 active users on this forum, maybe another 8 lurkers. This is not some vast and great ongoing debate, just few people shooting the shit. I don't know why things get heated and personal here, doesn't seem like there should be a reason. I also don't get how some people keep pushing points past other people's comfort zones.
