Methinks thou art being deliberately obtuse. You are agreeing with what
I wrote but trying to make it sound like you disagree.

Thank you for finally saying this. When I first read this, which was
yesterday, it freaked me out. I have never met anyone who looks at the
world this way. Its a free country and you are entitled to your views
but don't ever expect anyone to take you seriously. I think our views
of the world are so far apart that we are mutually unintelligible to
each other. So I'm going to leave this thread.
