Fight or flight and I don't do "flight". It's a character flaw I admit. It's led to many bad "choices". I strongly object to being denied the ability to mock (as in: "but it's not a conspiracy") that others enjoy. ( as in: http://www.tweak3d.net/forums/showthread.php?57917-Thought-of-Wiskas-when-I-saw-this ) I also object to evidence I provide being automatically and systematically ignored and then have my words twisted as evidence against me then be told that I don't support my claims. Try this: come up with true info that people do not want to hear and may tend to suggest their lives may get harder and post it. See what the response is. Why should I hush-up and kiss ass so that someone/anyone can continue a dreaming when it's time to wake up? As for anyone having "disdain" for the way things are, what action do they take about it?
