in reply to "running with scissors"
Well I'd only like to add two small things.
The first is, realize you ask everyone else to have time to explain themselves for their -- against you, but you claim to not have time to explain yourself when you are curt to other's posts. (This is not an attack, just an observation, perhaps to help gain perspective. I'm in relative agreement with everything said above).
The second is, I wanted to ++ everyone's post here, because they were all insightful, but if I did that then I wouldn't be able to vote on anything else later in the day. So I'm going to settle for null votes across the board.
