I wonder why grainofsand decilned to enter a debate with me regarding whether he/she is pro or anti EU.
All through this thread he/she repeatedly claimed that I lacked the ability to debate, the thread was a prelude to a debate and grainofsand
volunteered to be the subject - then ran off.
I suppose it is quite hypocritical if you support the EU but at the same time dislike Scottish nationalism, I mean it's not unheard of but it's
certainly a conundrum of sorts. I can't assume the subject would be anti-EU based on previous encounters.
It's pretty odd...I also found it intestesting when grainofsand gladly accepted the word of a fellow ATS'er earlier in the thread - said poster stated
they were not in any way advocating the content or thread in and grain gladly and amicably accepted, yet when that Mike lad tried to help grain
realise the futility of debating an absurd premise, grain got all angry and started calling me a Scottish nationalist p****.
Then used the Mike guy as an excuse to make an exit from the thread...that typical - I'll leave you two lovers to it, making crude comments about
sucking cookies and what have you.
This has been a really interesting thread, actually.
I suppose the ultimate irony is this - grain came with a bias, and when grain came I also quickly developed a bias. Grain happily accepted my absurd
claims as true because he/she wanted to confirm his/her bias.
I also wanted to confirm mine...what was my bias? I assumed grain has integrity and firmly believed what he/she had stated in previous encounters. I
thought, even though we disagreed, that he/she was as firm in their beliefs as I was.
My bias was not confirmed, in the end it was shattered. I assumed the best of you and you the worst of me...and the tables flipped, instantly - and
you fell from grace.
It actually was never my intention...grain responding to this thread wasn't something I expected, but we have a brief history.
Don't beat yourself up, dude/lass, my bias wasn't completely shattered and I know you ain't a bad person. You have emotions, you're human. It's not a
bad thing, regardless of your opinions, the words you use or what you think of me, you're at least fun and passionate.
Thread really is over, I have work in the morning. Night.
