You simply plucked your disagreement out of context (you obviously did not
consider what I wrote in the sentence that followed).

Anyway, I can easily put up with the fact you did not get what I was saying.

Have gotten used to that most people don't.

However, I have to exert some self-control not to rip the head off the
simultaneously genuinely vile and intellectually oh so stale Glen Sizemore.

Luckily I remember these wise words: "If one argues with a fool the chance
is he is doing just the same."
