    ...opposite.

    Nice.

    He's quite clearly suggesting that I have mental problems.
    after I clearly stated:
    (Footnote: I'm not talking about "mental" health here, I'm talking about ethical health...)
    This is a blatantly HRable offense. Where are my HRs then? Don't you have one to spare today?
    The question isn't relevant since it was already answered.
    Saying:
    As for why some may feel compelled to bring up the same criticisms repeatedly, that might have something to do with Ray's refusal/inability to answer them.
    has been proven to be patently illogical. I wrote a way-too-long post basically proving this repeatedly, and I'm not about to repeat it all.

    If I did, I would be doing exactly what you folks are doing; asking the same question that someone refuses to answer repeatedly, while knowing an answer will not be forthcoming.

    The reason you will not explain your motives is because the true and honest answer is exceeding unflattering.

    If you were acting in good faith, you would have bailed long ago.

    And now you cannot cop to your actual motives, even though you've been trapped in a logical corner, surrounded by enemy rooks and bishops, unable to move, unwilling to accept a checkmate.

    I understand why you cannot answer the question:

    If you know Ray is not going to respond in the way you think he should, EVER, why do you keep hectoring him about it?

    Why haven't you just accepted that he is unmovable, and skipped over Ray's writings on the way to diaries that you feel more comfortable with?

    Since I have a good idea of the answer(s) to this question (which I alluded to in one of my previous TL;DR comments), and I am certain that you are unwilling or unable to come clean, I'll stop asking it now.

    •  Oh, in a footnote (0+ / 0-)

      Obviously you knew exactly what you were saying and exactly how it would be taken, otherwise you wouldn't have thought it prudent to insert this disclaimer, albeit in a footnote.

      While this verbal fig leaf may get you off the hook, it makes it quite plain what your notions of ethical behavior are worth. Likewise your opinions of what's truthful or honest. Contrary to your apparent belief, you are neither a mind reader or a prophet and have no standing whatever to pontificate on the motives of others. That you think otherwise is, as I said elsewhere, sad.

      Your "question" is thoroughly dishonest. Again, I did not accost Ray. My comment was addressed to you. Ray chose to insert himself. To suggest otherwise is pure fabrication on your part.

      Clean up your own act.

        You know the thread is too long and narrow when your opponent uses middle skool logic while flailing in mid-fail.

        (See what I did there? That's a "call back".)

        So where's the HR then? I keep asking, yet none is forthcoming.

        Oh, and then there's this tidbit:

        I think you have great capacity for rational thought.
        Clearly an attack on your mental acuity/health.

        Want to resolve all of your problems with Ray? Simply stop clicking on his diaries.

        No matter how tempted, how compelled, how deep the urge, "Just say NO!" to clicking on Ray Pensador's diaries.

        Imagine the sense of peace and equanimity that would wash over you, just by skipping over that one little link.

        Perhaps we need a twelve-step program, for those addicted to shitting in Ray's diaries.

        •  I doubt you know enough about twelve step programs (0+ / 0-)

          to judge their applicability. They require a modicum of honest self criticism.

          So if you weren't intentionally insinuating mental illness, how was it that you thought it necessary to attach a disclaimer? If you weren't intentionally seeking to be prejudicial, why did you put it at the end of your comment rather than the top? If you were actually concerned to not give a false impression, the logical place to make the point would be at the beginning not in a foot note at the bottom.

          Hmm?

          •  Did you even read the fucking comment you... (0+ / 0-)

            ...replied to?

            I think you have great capacity for rational thought.
            Finally, and I mean finally, when you have to resort to this:
            I doubt you know enough about twelve step programs to judge their applicability. They require a modicum of honest self criticism.
            The thread is done.

            But of course:

            "You ain't the boss o' me! I'll stop commenting when I decide to stop commenting!!! This thread isn't over 'till I say it's over!!!"
