I wish that people that hinge their philosophical questions on "free will"
could make sure they define what kind of freedom they are referring to, and
what level of expressed "will" (endogenously generated specific drives,
motivations, and intellectual inclinations) that they imply are "free".

But since you, who do pose such questions, obviously can't.... I shall
continue to have plenty of opportunity to be pissed off at seeing them here
and elsewhere. :-\
