Oh, I caught it ;)  Just wanted to make it clear that the OP seems a bit ridiculous, if it's not a flame, that is.

You know, like, when you'd type up tons and tons of information about networking and that little club you recommend and stuff, and everyone would run in and tag the thread because it was so hepful and sweet?

Oh no, that's not Matthies being sweet. That's him showing his obvious superiority and knowledge of how to break the mold and achieve better results!

Newp, not buying it. That poo was sweet and helpful. If Matthies weren't a big ol' teddy bear he wouldn't share that information, as it reduces his ability to exploit the knowledge for his own benefit by diluting the playing field.

::squishes Matthies' cheeks::


what happened to that thread was everybody kept getting stupider and arguing with us and it just became not worth it

IT seems like the BEST, most relevant answer to this question is:

Because I was born privileged, from a privileged background, or inherited status, and I think that it's not fair to implement a program that levels the playing ground/works to provide equal opportunity for those who were born disadvantaged, or from a history of disadvantage.

 ;D Man, AA this and AA that.

If you're talking about obama, you're half right.  (He started wearing the pin recently.  Maybe his hatred of the country is wearing off.)

No we were not, re-read the thread
