<< You are about as ill-bred as they come >>

Oops, there's that "vituperative criticism" you were asking about again. Have you any capacity for self-reflection, or should I continue to point it out to you?

Goofy, your puerile rhetorical technique is to cut and paste fragments of others' work and then to attack the misplaced fragment as if it were a whole -- it is intellectually dishonest.

For example, the "you are as ill-bred as they come" which you quote was preceded by: "Mark Twain once said that good breeding consists of concealing how much you think or yourself, and how little you think of the other person. . . By this standard, you are as ill-bred as they come."

You capitalized the start of a fragment to represent as a whole, and ignored the thrust of my condemnation of you, which is your unceasing arrogance and inflated self-opinion.

I also note that your post received four recs within seconds, on a board that has almost no traffic this morning. This is an utter joke.

And I am merely noting, in a single sentence, you are entitled to your opinion and that my opinion of your opinion seems to decline with every post you post.

Seems to decline? Harsh words indeed. At least I can take some solace from the fact that you appear to be unsure.

OTOH, you are a rec-whoring farce, and your opinion on me or anything else means as little to me as the concept of integrity appears to mean to you.

You are little more than a glib little game-player with ego needs as vast as the Asian contintent. You need to present yourself to this board as superior, but I can assure you, no one here is buying, whored recs or not.
