I don't know. Is there a tool for getting you to stop bitching about the kind of music other people like?
This is a minor snark?

Yes.

Now ask yourself, especially considering that you've now brought this to a brand new page, is this "conducive to a good atmosphere here"?

No, but I mostly blame you for that.

[Smile]

The point being that you'll understand how some people feel about your tenacious attention to people with whom you disagree. Hopefully, understanding that some people find your aggressive snark to be detrimental to the forum, you'll reconsider using it so often.

Sometimes you have to look in the most random of threads to find the strangest arguments going on.

I'd be willing to consider that from someone who gave any indication that they actually believed the principle they were espousing. I've seen no indication of that from you. Rather, all I've seen is you exercising a privilege you would like me not to.

HA!

That's too nice a posting coincidence to mess with.

Ah, well. Hopefully it will be a couple days before I have to be wrong again.

Scott, you must be aware that Dagonee, much like an ancient river, will simply run over and over your opinions and positions until they are polished down to nothing but a depression in the Earth. I think he likes do that more than he likes actually contributing what I would call "unique and interesting" input into any given conversation. Instead, he depends on the wrongness of everyone around him to keep him flowing downhill. This is why lawyers are rich, but do not invent things. Though we need lawyers, sometimes, this reminds of why that fact is frustrating.

So, you clearly can't choose the wine in front of yourself.

A Scott R and Dagonee argument. Hmmm...all you dudes need is a common enemy to get you back on the same page.

As much as I think this argument between Scott and Dag is silly, I think it's a mite rude to dismiss Dag's manner of arguing.

Complaining that he breaks down the opposition's arguments and simply outlasts everyone is like complaining that African wild dogs don't hunt fair because they don't run too fast or too slow and simply wait until their prey get tired of running.

It's not as if Dag is invincible at the argument table, I've seen him accept correction before. Don't complain that he won't change his mind when your or anyone else's arguments don't stand his rigorous examinations. If Dag is wrong, and does not see it, life will somehow go on I am sure.

Finally, it's really poor form for people to keep bringing up the fact he is an attorney, as if that ought to provoke some ire from the peanut gallery. I work at Burrells-Luce, but if somebody said, "That's BlackBlade the press clipper," and acted as if that were the embodiment of who I am, it would really start to bug me. Sure being a lawyer to a significant extent says who Dag is, but it's hardly more important than the fact that he is a man or that he is Catholic.

I only say all this Orincoro because I don't think it falls on deaf ears.

I get the feeling that you have no idea how much Americans hate lawyers. That's understandable, since you spent most of your life out of the country.

OK, I'm pretty neutral (no preference between Dag and Scott as to whose posts I'd rather read), fresh to the issue (don't post here much, read only a small fraction of threads), and, of course, wholly objective and infallible [Wink] ...

and Dag is right. Scott R snarkily telling Dagonee not to post snark in response to (whoever) is no different and no more defensible than Dag doing it to (whoever).

It's like slapping somebody to get him to stop slapping somebody else (who was just asking for it).

I'm going to move on now; feel free to slap me.

The difference is that I don't think Scott was being snarky about it-- though I can see how his comments could be taken that way, I honestly think he's been consistently trying to lighten the mood

I say this as, not only someone who gets more worked up than Dagonee does, but as someone who admires Dagonee both as a poster and as an IRL person.

Nope. I definitely know the sentiment, and have heard my fair share of lawyer jokes. I've heard the tired old, "The only ones who made money in that multi-million dollar class action lawsuit was the lawyers."

It's when the humor makes that jump into intended maliciousness that it becomes irksome.
