    Actually, I was spoofing the advertising techniques seen in many MA ads back in the 70's and 80's.
    Again, I apologize for the apparent confusion you've suffered.

    Oh, it does. I don't expect you to understand why.

    You're being snitty this morning. Have some more coffee or something. Nobody is attacking you, and you seem to be attacking everyone around.

    As for befriending, I befriend those who seem pleasant to hang around. Some are staff (I'm guessing that's how they got there). Some are not. Some I even argue with, but actually like rather a lot (especially if they have a sick gi). I'm not sure what my taste in people has to do with you lashing out at people making fairly level observations about the use of the term "practical".

    Actually, I think you are confused. He wasn't attacking the use of the word, though you clearly think he was.

    Not attacking? You're attempting to make fun of part of his practice, telling him he needs lessons from the OP, and saying he's trolling (when he isn't). That's pretty clearly attacking.

    As for Skribbs, I actually disagree with him on his post here, but not vehemently. And I didn't bother to get snitty and bitchy about it.

    Oh, and the "you disliked my post, so I'm going to dislike yours" is pretty childish, too. Your entire tone this morning is pretty shallow.

    :hilarious:

    Advice is best given in a helpful tone, and based upon some evidence. Yours lacks both.

    That makes at least your 4th ad hominem attack this morning. Do you really think that has any meaning to it? What purpose did you intend a comment about a marketing picture to serve?

    And you base that ad hominem attack on exactly what?

    Just wanted to clarify my rating your above post as informative. I did so because I think it informs me about something about you that I think is not useful. Same with some of answers to gpseymour. That is only my opinion of course, you or anyone else is free to disagree with reasons or not.

    The above is so weak. Is it the best you can do? Why not try to be constructive in a polite manner. Were you ever taught that? Or could you just not find a way to make that work?

    How can you be sure I'm the only one that feels like this?

    At that, even if I'm the only one that feels like this, does it invalidate my feelings? Are my feelings predicated on what everyone else thinks I should feel?

    Who are you to tell me the worth of my feelings?

    What, precisely, has you deciding some hacking is going on? You're all over the place today.

    Yep, I know I am done posting with him.

    It's like feeding a stray cat; it keeps coming back begging for more, buy will bite you if you try to help it otherwise.

    You and I must be about the same age. I wouldn't expect most people these days to know who Will Rogers was. And you are right on.

    He's an old time cowboy/Cherokee humorist and actor. Well known for the line -

    "I joked about every prominent man of my time, but I never met a man I didn't like."

    Hey, don't lump all us together. Buka's a grumpy old man. I'm just a grumpy middle-aged man.
