Thank you!  That nailed it very precisely.  Keep doing that and you'll become another of my forum crushes... :)

What on earth is in the water lately?  There are some very, very scary threads here.  I just creep away from them slowly, hoping to attract no attention by the predators roaming the fora.

Oh, I'm afraid to even go looking for this one.

Reading some of these threads it feels almost as if I've wandered onto a preschool playground.

You know, you hardly enjoy unanimous forumite support for your repetitive bemoaning of everything in life.  My complaints about life that I bring to the fora are couched in a little bit of tongue-in-cheek irreverence (often sailing obliviously over some heads).  Your complaints are just endless and tiresome... and so very sad.

In the end I'd rather be me than you.  I'm having more fun.

Go watch some animated opera-singing funny animals.  We'll both feel much better.

You mean people who I don't know and will never meet

Take some actually and sincerely meant advice, friend.

This is an incredibly dangerous assumption.

I would post to the "Bullying by Exclusion" thread, but somehow it seems contrary to the spirit of the thing.

Ok, for some reason, that one really, really got me.

Dude, you really need to be looking for another job.  There is no way in Hades that you're going to get tenure.  Quit dreaming and start looking; you have screwed yourself royally.

Uh-huh.  

Well, now that I have read that ever-so-convincing response, I'm no longer angry and offended.  At this point, I just feel sorry for you, what with the difficulty with critical thinking and difficulty making a logical argument that holds water and all.  That must make your life very hard so that you must demonize people by attributing very extremist views to what constitutes a widely diverse groups in order to get to people to band together against a common enemy that exists only in your mind instead of making persuasive arguments for your point of view.

This sounds like every snowflake thread on the fora.  Students today; they're all lazy, entitled, etc.

Okay.  This week someone seems to have sneaked something else into the water supply.  Dueling apologies?  And, neither poster is being sarcastic?  How nice.

Yes, is it not lovely?  I was just about to post something to this effect on the thread in question, but here seems more appropriate.  Kudos, or kudzu, or something to both.
