I'd suggest you come to grips with your dormant sexuality problem. I'm
fine with whatever comes out of your long overdue introspection as long as
you deal with it.

I have no doubt that it is - you're just missing the point that everyone's
fed up with you SAYING SO all the time. The originality of your ideas is
lost in the miserable excuse for communication you wrap it in. At which
point I don't even bother to check the facts on your statement because
your attitude makes me not care. Havoc steals good ideas all the time,
it's one of his strong points, as well as seeming to be the running gag in

You are right, the stuff you make up to wrap up your silly ego displays is
no where close to anything real life is. I mean, I enjoy nigerian scam
mails more than your posts because at least the writing is funny.

The "he means well" part is why he gets a lot more "support" for his
"crazy" ideas than you do. Take a hint. No, really. Take a hint. This
is a voluntary community, so take a hint. We respect people here based on
their actions, not their words. Your words aren't even worth respecting

We are all trying to be so when it comes to you.

A liberty I take much joy in.

I don't think you've said why I would be wrong or why I would be. I'm
pretty sure that I'd value other's people opinions about it more than

So why are you trying ?

No, but I do time the intervals between two reply hits, and my stopwatch
says you replied a hell of a lot quicker to my mail than I did to yours in
this thread :)
I imagine a socially disjoint Bowie sitting in front of his computer
wearing only his pyjamas because he's not going to leave the house anyway
since people at the store give him blank stares when he suggests that the
bread slicer machine ought to be color-reactive to indicate if the bread
is sliced well, or being sliced, or no bread is in, screaming "you WILL
one day SEE the light and I WILL then scream how it was my idea", and I
see him waiting for some stupid newbie like me to actually reply to the

you tell I'm rather new ?) I will refrain from replying publically to
whatever drivel you have the time for posting.
If you're so smart, start by figuring out WHY it is there doesn't seem to
be anyone who is actually agreeing with possibly valid points you're
