Wasn't the purpose in the first place. What's your point (if you have any)?

Re: The baloney detection kit

Telling me this about the video I link to "I'm sure that will change exactly.....zero....minds." is

1) superfluous
2) thoughtless
3) a presumption that I am attempting to change anybody's mind, which is condescending at best

Oh, brother.

Keld, I said that as being a tease to people who will disagree with it. You think May or Geoff will suddenly watch that and admit their eyes have been opened?

I'm actually amazed one recurrent troll hasn't retorted with his clip and paste job about skepticism yet!

Look back at it and see if you think I was agreeing with you, perhaps.

Next thing, you posted that on a general audio forum, so you must have had some purpose. However, you tossed it up as a link with no fucking comment or opinion of your own about the content. What is it about the internet that people think cutting and pasting a link is an example of communication to start a thread?

So, I will ask again for some comment from you: What was your purpose?

My point was that this is an age old argument and I made a joke that no one will change their stripes.

I actually agree with the video.

So, tell us, what was your purpose?

What was your expected outcome? What is your opinion of the video? Do you agree or disagree with it?

Posting a link without comment as a form of 'content' is what, if my reply was thougthless, condescending, or superfluous?

I'm sorry I overreacted. Maybe I had a bad day...

My purpose with the link was of course to share something I found of interest. I don't really know how to answer your last question. I will try to sharpen up, and once again, my apologies for my reaction. I was out of line.

Hehe, there will be no pissing contests between Buddha and me, I was in a lousy mood I guess. In my opinion Buddha makes great sense on the forum, and I actually like him, so I hope thing are ok on his side too.

Both of you are wonderful assets. No mindless fighting allowed.

Clever, playful, amusing bickering encouraged.
