Well, seeing as how I have already asked you twice...I'll let you figure out what I would like you to do (YES BTW). Also, after all of your talk about expecting scrutiny and only posting if you feel confident (etc.) you are now kind of compelled, by your own argument" to show your work in this instance.

No, I can take it...no problem. Fire away! Honestly, if that's what you want to do, then go for it. I am just going to point it out whenever you do it, especially if your choice to do so constitutes a weak argument, or is an attempt to dissuade outside observers from an objective analysis of our debate. That's my prerogative.
Since all communication contains strong contextual clues about the thoughts and motivations of the individual communicating it, you can probably figure out where my perceptions of your motivations originated. Also, your response is not representative of a person dispelling false perceptions...more so like a person put off by (and getting defensive over) the exposure of attributes that you would prefer remain hidden under the surface. Just an observation.

Same here. I never said anything about stopping the conversation or wanting it to end.

I don't work that way. I don't believe in censorship (not saying you do either)...even if it is of something that is upsetting or offensive...though in this case it is more irritating or humorous than anything else.
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.
