A nagging little voice inside my head tells me that wolfpuppy is just one
of these clueless top posters who reads a couple of lines of a post (not
necessarily at first lines of it) and posts a "really helpful" response
rather than actually seeing what the thread is about and contributing to
it as such.
No, he didn't. Missed my point by a mile, but that's alright. No one
expects to have anyone get anything right on these newgroups anyway. Most
posters are troubled adults off their meds or bored teens just stirring the
pot, so, if it makes you feel good to rag on me, go right ahead. I have no
problem with that, although, if you actually wanted to know what I meant,
you could have, you know, just asked....but that'll never happen.
It's a little hard to answer a question when part of it is dealing with the
price of a benz and another part is asking if someone is going to die a
virgin.....but if you seriously want to know what my point was, see my
earlier post. If not, flame away.
Ok, I'll buy that. Guess I didn't count the right number of carrots in
front and behind the lines of text. My bad. For whatever reason, I don't
think I actually saw the original post, but maybe I missed it. Threads can
be a bit odd sometimes. Sometimes I think I would like to learn how to
"snip", but it looks like it would take awhile and I don't think anyone
would want to read a post that goes on too long anyway. Sounds like a
poster was making a joke and I got caught up in it....I still think, though,
in spite of the bickering that goes on in here and other newgroups, that
99.99% of the posters are pretty cool dudes and dudettes. In some respects,
better than a chatroom, which I've never been all that fond of.
Later, and have a good weekend.

I couldn't help but notice how you snipped and inserted comments in between
(I've got to learn how to do that...). That said, you shouldn't be upset or
surprised when someone else takes a bit of the post and comments on it. But
in all fairness, sometimes the original post of the thread is missing,
leaving responses, so if something is taken out of context, so be it. No
Perhaps I was commenting on a narrow part of a post rather than the whole,
but I stand by what I said. But let not your heart be troubled, and try not
to get too excited. If you are going to post jokes, you're going to get
joking posts back. It's the law.
> Then what exactly prompted your response?
Because I read a post and wanted to, end of story. And I will continue to
do so, but we are done. You see wolfpuppy, ignore it. Do not click on it.
In fact, you can filter me forever. See? No more problem.
Did a top poster cheat you out of some money once? You really need to get
over it. And by the way, what part of not opening my post did you not
understand? You can avoid all this fustration, kid, by just saying no.
