terralily - wasn't addressing you; sorry about the confusion.
kingofspain - yes, now I see; you have clearly demonstrated your superior attitude and intelligence. The fact that you don't see the pungent irony in most of your posts is evidence of your lack of intelligence. Allow me to point it out to you:
no i wasn't attacking their intellect, i was attacking their attitude, which is dismissive in the extreme. your ideas are so hackney and tired i didn't feel like telling you at length why their so stupid because it's already been done so in that case i felt i could be dismissive.
Do you see? You attacked red and lily for supposedly being "dismissive in the extreme" in their attitudes. But then you justify your own extreme dismissiveness and arrogance. We call this irony. And when it is unintended and the speaker is unaware of it, it is a sign of ignorance -- the marker of an unreliable narrator -- and sometimes we even see it as a sign of stupidity.
And FYI, the same irony can be pointed out in countless posts of yours. Best to start becoming more aware of it....
