A while back gun threads were popular, like the current trend in ebola related threads.
I got involved in some of those threads and soon realised they were a rocky road to animosity, disagreement and petty bickering.
The threads tended to descend into chaos and before I knew it I was being...a twat, everyone was being a twat.
I decided that my opinion was exactly that, and that airing it wasn't going to change anyone's mind or opinion. I'm not necessarily disagreeing
with you, nor agreeing.
Sometimes it's best to just let people think what they think, you can't change people, you've been trying for the last few pages and it's gotten
this thread nowhere.
Why do you care what someone else is claiming so much? If you know in your heart of hearts that you are indeed righteous - often it's best to leave
it at that and move onwards.
You come across as an intelligent, objective individual - but the fact that you've spent the last god-knows how many pages continually arguing the
same tired points over and over would suggest otherwise, you accused the OP of trolling some pages ago, flat out. So I'm accusing you now.
Because someone who is as smart as yourself spending the last however many pages baiting and in some cases belittling folk who disagree with you bears
all the hallmarks of the classic troll.
It's the silk hat on a pig situation, sometimes it's best to simply say...yeah, okay - I'm out. To me that's a mark of intelligence, the
realisation that you can't expect people to fall in line and agree that you're right..it's clearly not gonna happen, why have you not picked up on
this fact yet?
You seem not to be able to get the whole philosophy of the gray area, the OP is hiding behind the intended purpose of this forum, apprently -
regardless of whether that's true or not, ATS won't change the criteria for posting in this forum to suit you or anyone, it is what it is and it's
not your place to say it's wrong or belittle anyone for using this forum for its intended purpose.
I know you're trolling for the simple fact that you've continually tried to derail the OP...for pages and pages, with the same tired responses,
matter-of-fact claims and insults - the fact that you simply refuse to accept that the claims made in the gray area don't require any conclusive
proof or evidence - if that fact bothers you perhaps you're better off not visiting the gray area or responding to threads like I no longer get
involved in gun related threads.
Didn't a wise man once say that the true definition of insanity is repeating the same process over and over and expecting different results?
You can't change ATS. If you want to contribute to the thread, how's about a response to a response I posted some pages back (page 10 or 11 I think)
regarding the supposed patent for ebola...is it really a patent for ebola?
I'm curious to hear yours and others' response to that, I'm here to be (hopefully) educated, given information or links to information that will
shed some more light on this business.
The last 4 or 5 pages have been consumed by you disagreeing with the same claims over and over...you've essentially hijacked someone elses thread
because they posted something you disagree with and/or don't like. I'd prefer if you contributed or left to be perfectly frank so that the thread
can continue as it should, and people can discuss the issue objectively and in a more amicable manner...not too much to ask.
If you care so much, why not compose a thread that contests the claims being made that you're so sure are untrue and it might actually prove to be
something useful and productive, this thread has gone from interesting to tiresome.
