Well what goes around comes around
Being "rude" is subjective... What is "rude" to one may be "curt" to another, and "simply stating facts" to another.
Did you read the OP in that thread? If you did, you will find that his "take" quite reasonably fit with precisely what he stated in the opening of
this thread... Here is the quote, beginning at sentence #3...
Mainly I post to chase away trolls, or people who talk like they know what they're talking about, but don't.
It is a stretch to say he was ridiculing someone for not providing the same things others are demanding (of him) in this thread...and thus - what goes
around comes around.
I read that same thread (when it was posted)...and sentimentally had a similar take on that OPs tale, as he (this thread's OP)... I, however, did not
voice that opinion, as that is not the way I am wired.
In reading most of your replies herein, and elsewhere, I get the impression that you think your "perspective" is at least a little more elevated
than the rest...and that...we...need you...to help us...see straight.
While I welcome positive questions, feedback, and sincere questions - I find no value in repetitive derogatory remarks about someone's character, and
attacks on their person, beliefs, family...and/or - story - as seems to be quite acceptable to you and the rest of the chorus that has comprised the
bulk of the last 25 or so pages of commentary...
After I have determined (to my own satisfaction) that an OP is perpetrating a hoax, bogus tale, or that I believe they have nothing I care to partake
of...I give them no more of my time.
If the OP is found to be a world-class (or trivial-class) hoax...what will you gain from saying "I TOLD YOU SO!"?
If his motivation is perverse, or fraudulent...he will not be one of the more popular contributors on ATS afterward.
As you say -- "What goes around, comes around" ... And if that is the truth - the truth doesn't need you or me to "make it come around".
Thanks for engaging in this discussion.
