people are just gonna stop answering you, colonels. without commenting on the actual point itself, why are you so combative with those trying to help you out? you were seeking information - metsmax was nice enough to provide that information. he didnt disagree with you or pass judgement on yuor point of view. merely, he offered the historical perspective you specifically requested. and then you go and belittle his post, and jump on him like he tore your point of view apart.
the sad reality is you use these "requests for information" as an excuse to get up on your soapbox. you didn't care what the answer was, you just want people to go along with your point of view. if you want to debate an issue, thats fine - but baiting people with a legitimate sounding question just so you can engage them in a one sided argument is totally retarded. and pretty childish, too. its no way to act towards someone who, in good faith, tries to help you out with an answer to your question.
on a related note, you really should consider trying to be more open minded. being closed minded just causes you to learn inefficiently, which causes you to fall further and further behind your peers, as you go through life. nobody even disagreed with you here, at least as of your replies to mets - so who are you arguing with!?!? for someone who always carries on about how others dont even consider your point of view, how people should give your thoughts the time of day instead of just disagreeing because its you... it sure is hypocritical to act this way! take a moment to consider how closed mined and immature one has to be to aggressively reject alternate viewpoints, when no alternate viewpoints have even been suggested...
and hey, if you want to keep taking this off track and not discuss the issue at hand, fine...I'm game for whatever dice-thrower you're rolling out. I take offense because people act like/think I don't know what the hell I'm talking about, when in fact, the opposite is true.
I told you the history. I didnt zing you or criticize you.
colonel, if you want to start a debate, start a debate - but in this thread you have now in multiple posts attacked posters who did not criticize you - who certainly said nothing ad hominem.
I have always thought that you tend to take things too far but that you sometimes make amusing or interesting points. I do not take kindly to these posts. Lose the attitude colonel, stop attacking people and work on ideas and knowledge.
You have disappointed me - and you didnt start that high to begin with. Try to be a more useful poster - amuse or enlighten or otherwise make reading what you write worthwhile.
