Good. I don't believe you actually did consider my views in a fair manner, so I'm glad you can't believe something that never happened.NorthernComfort wrote: ↑Sun Apr 09, 2017 3:34 pm I can't believe I spent literally over an hour of my life writing a 7,000-word reply in which I tried my hardest to be respectful and consider your views, and find the agreements and disagreements, in a vain hope of finding amicable resolution and putting the matter to rest.
And I've put days into this thread. How do you think I feel? Combined days, and I honestly feel at this point that not a word of this has been considered. It's one thing to disagree with me, but telling me my point is flat out invalid and shouldn't be considered, which is what this thread does amount to for me, that's painful.
I don't know if you think I'm trying to just get you to go away with my take on how you're coming across. I assure you I feel the way I said. Word. For. Word. I feel I've been ignored, treated as an idiot, had a whole Hell of a lot of words put into my mouth, been mocked, and been written off. I feel like you came into this thread with only the goal of telling me how wrong I am. I've tried to present my point to you. I honestly don't feel like you've done anything to address it in a serious manner.
I believe you came into this with only one purpose: To tell me what a wrongheaded asshole I am.
I honestly believe that you take your own experience as valid but not mine.
I honestly believe you were never willing to consider my point.
I honestly believe you started mocking me about half this thread ago with your stupid damn links. Which I keep calling akin to saying all of Florida is "Florida Man" but responding to that would involve acting as though I have a point.
Oh, and when you said this it was all I needed to know:
IF YOU DON'T THINK I'M BEING HONEST WITH YOU, WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK I'M DOING? Don't dance around an accusation, come out and say it. I wouldn't be any more disrespected by that than I have been by your tone for the course of several months.
You think YOUR time has been wasted? I started a thread nobody's taken the time to consider but continues to last. I feel like "you're arguing wrong" is a bully tactic by the way. It tends to be along the lines of "I won't dignify this with a response," which is by nature insulting.
And for the last six pages of this thread you've underlined it. What the Hell are you still here for if not to beat me over the head with it?
